The MY2018 version of Tata Hexa is losing several features compared to last year’s model and here’s a look at the list of alleged omitted equipment
Tata Motors has been on a roll lately in the Indian market by often outnumbering the industry volume growth and it has invested huge sum in recent years. The Indian automaker was ranked 99th among top global spenders in Research & Development, and when Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover is taken into consideration, it was positioned 13th.
The recent crop of vehicles such as Tiago, Nexon and Hexa are based on Impact design language and they have brought in a completely new brand perception. The Tiago and Nexon are carrying VFM tags in their respective segments and gaining increased reputation during the course of this year.
However, the company appears to be facing alleged heat due to the discarded features from new models. With Hexa being at the centre of it, Team-Bhp members have shared their thoughts with TORQUE_AANJANEY pointing out the guidelines missing from reverse camera:
“The reverse camera missing the guidelines plus the extremely poor quality in dimly lit surroundings is just unpardonable. A car of this size needed a better reverse parking assist.”
Another user said the Hexas manufactured from July 2018 had the roof rail, which can only be purchased from Tata’s accessory list for around Rs. 35,000 now, and third row charging port removed. McLaren Roxx mentioned that 19-inch spare wheel is no longer.
AdityaDeane went a step further and posted all the missing features in the MY2018 Hexa when compared to the last year’s model and the list was a big one. He indicated that the signature front grille with chrome humanity line, soft touch dash with Hexa branding, retractable window sunblinds, steering mounted controls and speed-based volume control in base XE, support for ConnectNext, NaviMaps, Juke Car and Tata Smart Manual apps, standard sunglass holder, etc were missing.
Moreover, he also mentioned the inclusion of Ebony Black skid plates over grey in MY2017 Hexa, premium fabric inserts as opposed to full fabric in door trim and seat upholstery, hydraulic brake assist, option of six and seven seats, new colour option and so on.
