Tata Hexa Downtown Urban Edition is painted in metallic brown shade and features subtle visual updates and feature additions
We showed you pictures of a new special edition Tata Hexa earlier this month and the real deal had officially arrived a few days ago. There are some visual additions to the new limited edition model for making it stand apart from the rest of the range.
Carmakers are introducing updates and special editions of vehicles from their existing portfolio as part of the strategy to grab increased number of buyers during the closure parts of the year following festive season rush.
The homegrown brand has introduced Downtown Urban Edition of the Hexa at Rs. 12.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is made available with an exclusive metallic brown shade called Urban Brown and features subtle visual enhancements in two packages.
With new shade, the premium crossover is sold in six different paint schemes including Platinum Silver, Sky Grey, Arizona Blue, Tungsten Silver and Pearl White.
It will be offered in limited numbers across all variants with two package option. In a similar fashion to the regular Hexa, that competes against the likes of Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and Toyota Innova Crysta, the special edition gets smoked out headlamp unit, chrome trimmed black grille, integrated silver scuff plate on the front bumper, sporty fog lamp cluster, etc.
The Downtown Urban Edition of the Hexa won’t gain a set of 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels in the standard XT variant as expected. No powertrain changes are expected as the Hexa will continue to be powered by the 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 148 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 320 Nm of peak torque between 1,500 rpm and 3,000 rpm in the XE trim.
In the higher XM and XT versions, the Hexa develops 154 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of peak torque from 1,700 rpm to 2,700 rpm. Both the trims can be specified with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox while the entry-level XE can be bought only with a five-speed manual unit.
An all-wheel-drive system helps sending power to all the four wheels only in the range-topping XT trim. The special edition asks for a premium of Rs. 45,000 across the trim levels due to the presence of accessories like rear-seat entertainment, unique seat covers, TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System), HUD (Head Up Display), etc.
There are two Downtown Urban packages made available namely Absolute and Indulge. They provide interesting additions like chrome touches on the headlamp, taillamp surrounds, on the side profile and the ORVMs. They also get Downtown badging, wireless smartphone charging, car care kit, new carpet set and side steps.
On the entry-level variants, the Absolute package offers tan seat covers while, on the other hand, the Indulge package on the low-end trims allow for new 16-inch alloy wheels. The range-topping XT and XTA trims with the Indulge package comprises of dual 10.1-inch infotainment Blaupunkt screens for the rear and a dash-mounted HUD.
Despite the premium over standard trims, the special edition does look to offer more for the money. Currently, prices for the Tata Hexa start at Rs. 11.72 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the base XE 4×2 and it goes up to Rs. 17.19 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the top-of-the-line XT 4×4 trim.
Tata provides the standard Hexa across six trims with two automatic and one 4×4 variants. The range-topping XT trim comes with six airbags, reverse parking camera and sensors, cruise control, LED DRLs, automatic headlamps, LED tail lamps, sporty 19-inch alloy wheels, electrically foldable ORVMs and automatic climate control. The ConnectNext touchscreen infotainment system supports navigation while the JBL surround sound system has 5 speakers, 4 tweeters and 1 subwoofer.
