This is what Autocar mentions.
Maybe it's for the lower trims only.

On the lower-spec XE, XM and XMA trims, the Absolute package adds new tan seat covers, while the Indulge package on the lower variants gets them new 16-inch alloy wheels. The top-spec XT and XTA trims, with the Indulge package, come with two Blaupunkt 10.1-inch infotainment screens for the rear and a dashboard-mounted heads-up display that provides speed limit alerts, battery voltage and tyre pressure information.

3. Wireless charging system
Correct me if I'm wrong but wireless charging will be useful only for the phones which support it, right? Else it's not a pretty useful feature.

Here are a few phones which support wireless charging

FYI, any phone can be made wireless charging compatible for less that 500 rupees. In my opinion, this is a very good feature to have and pretty soon every car manufacturer will be offering this as a feature.

Wasn't aware of this. If any phone can be made wireless charge compatible, then it is a pretty useful feature.

Was reading how to make a phone wireless charging compatible, found this interesting article

The HUD feels like a patch job and I was thinking of something in line of how it gets projected on windscreen ala BMW. Else, Hexa continues to power in the VFM quotient!

The color looks fabulous. They need to get this one included in the regular color palette.

Slowly and surely Hexa is getting established in the market. There is plenty of room for improvement but looks like the numbers are getting stabilized. As always the bigger factor is going to be the after sales and service experience of the owners which will help in improving the perception about Tata Motors' service quality.

The XE and XM trims come with 16" alloys - it's only the XT variant that has 19" alloy wheels!

The Hexa Downtown Urban Edition looks good and these features ae great. The car is a good performer I hear. So tempted, if this was available 3 months back would have gone for it. For now, I'm trying to source the gorgeous Hexa steering leather for my Nexon, LOL.
