Tata showcases Hexa Concept at Geneva Motor Show

Tata Motors has showcased a new concept crossover at the ongoing 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed Hexa, the vehicle is based on the Aria, but features restyled exteriors and interiors.

At the front, the Hexa gets a redesigned bonnet, which is flatter than the one on the Aria, a new honeycomb grille with a thick brushed aluminium lining, new projector headlamps and a new bumper with a wide air dam with brushed aluminium surrounds and large fog lamp housings at both ends. The Hexa rides on 19-inch wheels and sports dual tone wheel arches, body cladding and blackened B, C and D-Pillars. At the rear, the Christmas tree tail lamps of the Aria have been dropped and in their place come a pair of more modern LED wraparound clusters. The tail gate is new as well and has a thick brushed aluminium strip running across it, connecting the two tail lamps. The bumper has a brushed aluminium skid plate and houses an exhaust pipe at each end. The Hexa measures 4,764 mm in length, 1,895 mm in width and 1,780 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,850 mm.

On the inside, the Hexa features a dual tone dashboard with the multifunction steering wheel carried over from the Zest and Bolt. There is a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, six captain seats and AC vents for the second and third row. The car is equipped with features such as ESP, LED ambient interior lighting, six airbags, automatic headlamps, daytime running lights and rain-sensing wipers.

The Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder VARICOR 400 diesel engine that puts out 154 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. The vehicle also gets a four-wheel drive system with terrain response.
