Tata Hexa Special Edition is painted in metallic brown shade and features subtle visual updates; no powertrain changes made
Courtesy of a Team-BHP reader, pictures of a new special edition version of the Tata Hexa crossover have emerged on the interweb. There seems to be some visual additions to the new 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 eve of Diwali and the festive season as a whole.
The spy pictures suggest that the homegrown brand could be launching the special edition Hexa in the coming days or weeks as Tata cannot afford to lose buyers by delaying it post festive season. It will be made available with an exclusive metallic brown shade and may feature subtle visual enhancements. Currently the premium crossover is sold in five different paint schemes namely Platinum Silver, Sky Grey, Arizona Blue, Tungsten Silver and Pearl White.
It could be offered in limited numbers as the exclusivity may entice the descending customers. In a similar fashion to the regular Hexa, that competes against the likes of Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and Toyota Innova Crysta, the limited production-run model gets smoked out headlamp unit, chrome trimmed black grille, integrated silver scuff plate on the front bumper, sporty fog lamp cluster, etc.
The special edition Hexa is reported to gain a set of 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels as in the standard XT variant. 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 limited edition could ask for a slight premium over the standard Hexa.
