Hexa is a fantastic vehicle but is not the right car if it will be used primary in the city. It is a tailor made for highways and is a bit too big and cumbersome otherwise.

You should limit your search to the Creta and the Jeep Compass. Creta if you want to get from point A to B with minimal fuss and effort. Compass if you like your car to have character and personality and feel in the way it drives.

Hi Shreyas

when I was looking for a car an year back , I had TD'ed Creta Diesel AT and I purchased XUV as simply it was a superior car as well as more VFM.

Am Still considering XUV but my only grouse is that its ride is bumpy !

compass - i havnt TD'ed it but IMHO its same size as an ecosport which is quite a competent vehicle ....and am not the one who goes after brands.
another question that comes to mind is that the money I spend of compass - I am not getting as much....

confused :(

Size to price ratio of the Hexa is unmatched. Problem is, the huge size and turning circle make parking and taking U-turns a pain. Otherwise, it is THE car to buy in the 10-20L range. I drive an XTA myself

Creta is not my favorite car either. But it's merit is it's compact size, top notch refinement and super light controls. It really is a breeze to drive in traffic. It should be your plan B. Non controversial choice which will get the job done. Nothing more, nothing less.

As for the Compass, I suggest you do wait to test drive the Automatic, which will be launched sometime around Diwali. Think of it as a Creta which will appeal to your heart as well. I TDed the manual, and liked it.

Tata Hexa seems to be the clear winner, but I don't see many Hexas' on the road. Sales numbers also don't seem to be high. Is there the perception in Indian consumer's minds that Tata is a "Taxi" brand and hence the brand image is not good?

The reason being: it is not yet offered to the taxi fleet and all the numbers only reflect regular customers.
Add to that, it's a new product in the market and GST has effected the sales numbers greatly for the months of June and July for all brands.
One year post launch should give us a clearer picture.
Besides, am seeing more and more Hexas on road here on bangalore with every passing week.

Lot has been discussed in this thread. Still, let me talk about my choice - Hexa XTA.

Have been owning a Punto 90HP and it still serves me really well. Punto 90HP being a powerful enough hatch with outstanding ride quality and quality on good roads and especially a mile muncher, my choice by default went to a Jeep Compass with a budget of around 20L.

But my wife was a little adamant about buying a 7-seater, which is butch enough, comfortable and easy enough to maneuver around - so Compass is out from the plan. Consulted with a close friend who has been owning Tata Safari over its last two generations and he suggested a test drive of Hexa. It took me just seconds to decide after doing the test drive - Outstanding ride quality, amazing interiors and features, full worth of the money and amazing road presence. It has a lot of exclusivity and I thought that this is the vehicle I should probably own next. The size never bothered me after having the test drive and I just fell in love with its "Race Car mode". I may not use a 4X4 to its fullest and XTA has rear wheel drive with an LSD - I would settle for the time being with such an SUV. Booked the vehicle and still waiting for the delivery.
