Tata Motors have soft launched their latest Passenger vechicle ,Hexa during the last week of December 2016.
The launch was through an event between 23 and 25 December.
As an Invitee representing Indiblogger,the Indian Blogging community, I attended the event at White Orchids,adjacent to Manyata Business Park,Nagvara,Bangalore on 24 December.
Sturdy to look at without being monstrous or ugly,the Hexa has an important feature that allows one the luxury of not closing the eyes while the car is climbing up or swerves.
The car goes up upto 31 degrees inclination with least discomfort.
As the car swerves one does not feel the strain for the Hexa moves at angle of 40 degrees.
And there is good road grip.
As a layman not versed in car mechanics or skills in driving, I can assert that one does not get jittery during these manevoures.
And these manevoures are common on Indian roads.
Well, I get jittery, my son and son in law tell me not to close my eyes,especially when I sit in the front seat.
The legroom and head clearance in the car is quite comfortable and one need not twist and turn to be seated.
Seven seats ensure a family can travel in comfort.
Another area while traveling in car is the worry of potholes and stagnant water.
With a clearence of 400 units against a normal 220, the Hexa does not get bogged down by slush.
And the pothole shocks are barely noticed.
For the comfort seekers,the interior is rich without being gaudy.
With options of 4 to 10speakers,Tweeters,subwoffer,the music lovers can enjoy.
And phone facility.
For the driver, one has optional Driver Information System(DIS).
Fiur Driving Modes,
Auto,Comfort,Dynamic and Rough Road.
Reversing sensors ensure smooth reversing.
And it is Diesel powered.
Mileage is said to be around 14 km per liter in city and 17.6 in Highways.
Expected date of launch, Mid January 2017.
