Don't lose heart. With BS6 kicking in, you may still get a deal. Also, 2017 models are available in the market for 40% less than the retail price. Good deal IMO.

Well, pride in design and commercial aspects are two different things. The designer might love its lines, but the public may not. Beauty also lies in the eye of the beholder, and the car has sold quite well - to be honest. So it has, in all fairness, attracted its share of eyeballs!

What were the historic sales like? Currently it sells a few hundred a month, which is about 10% of higher priced Innova.

Tata Motors enjoys low sales across categories (except Tiago, and to an extent Nexon), so they were happy with the few hundreds it sold. I recall someone from the dealership mentioning the same. Innova is a monster in sales, and quite hard to catch up.

Still, the gap is too wide. Brezza was a monster too, but nexon managed 50% of its sales, before venue came and bulldozed them both. When people spend 20 Lakhs, looks matter a lot. Mahindra still does good numbers with horribly outdated cars because they provide the macho street thug look that rural folks crave for. Hexa with better design and marketing would do 1000/month IMO.

Hexa is a Great vehicle. Those who have driven/own would understand that. It's a much more compelling buy than the Innova.

Sad to see it taken off so soon. I wud infact say, those looking for a 20 lac 7 seater simply grab it before it is out. It's so good that it's a no brainer.

At this price range and the no of sales they already do, not having xta with esp doesn't make sense at all.

It's not going anywhere.

TATA needs to do its makeover with swanky styling and added gadgetry in order to bring HEXA out of its current state. Otherwise even with a BS6 engine there are many NEW contenders to compete with.

Please change the thread title or close this thread, as it is officially confirmed by Tata Motors that will not be discontinuing the Hexa.

Not really. The management's words were not definitive. I am hearing that Tata might miss the April 2020 deadline and thus, the Hexa *might* be discontinued. Now whether it's temporary (until they get the BS6 engine) or permanent, only time will tell.

In my books, Hexa is the best effort yet from Tata Motors and took care of almost all aspects. Sad to see it facing an uncertain future. With the sales figures hovering in low 3 digits, don't think Tata would be keen to continue it in the BS6 era.

So should we consider buying Hexa or not considering uncertainty over its future. I am interested in Hexa and the dealer I enquired told me he has to check into factory if the model I want is available or not. He has not got back to me yet. I wanted 7 seater XT or XTA depending upon what deal I get.
