With all the boasting all around about the all new Tata Hexa, here are somethings which let us thin whether the vehicle is really worth all that hype? although the vehicle seems to be much promising we should forget that its root are deep down linked to the Tata Aria which happens not to be so popular during those times. Let us see why among all the SUV’s out there, we think that it might be a fair deal if we compare it with the XUV 500.
The Mahindra XUV 500 :
With that big name and a Cheetah inspired look, the XUV 500 undoubtedly happens to be a hit of all times. The vehicle has received 29 awards in total and is the most awarded vehicle of the year 2011-12. Thus, The mahindra XUV500 was a big turning point for mahindra Motors to have a real big break in the Automobile industry.
The vehicle came with an extremely affordable price tag for amongst its segment of cars. The vehicle comes within a price tag of 11.5 to 18 lakhs. With all the variants including all wheel drive, four wheel drive, rear wheel drive etc. The vehicle has a 2.0 litre and a 2.2 litre with petrol and diesel engine variants which power it like a beast indeed. Also the vehicle has got good driving dynamics and comes with ABS as default.
|Peak Power||103 kW (140 bhp) @3750 rpm|
|Peak Torque||330/320 Nm @1600-2800 rpm|
|Ground Clearance||200 mm|
|Fuel Tank Capacity||70 liters|
Tata Hexa :
This vehicle happens to be on world autoblog in recent times. The vehicle happens to be a descendant of the Tata Aria. Hence it is rendered totally from the chassis level. The vehicle happens to be bulgy and fat in every nature. It is big and huge. Tata Motors have successfully marketed the vehicle, no doubt about that hence, every news channel and autoblog is talking about the Tata Hexa.
The vehicle drives over a 2.2 litre diesel engine. With automatic and manual drive trains. It seems to be heavy at corners. It gives you second thoughts before you want to press that throttle to till its end. The Hexa fails at convincing through looks. The gaudy looking tail lights give it an ugly look, which could be much more better. Base model comes with a price tag of 10.2 lakhs and the variants may cost up to 15.5 lakhs. The vehicle delivers and mileage of about 12 kpl on manual and 11 kpl. This doesn’t seems to be so promising. The vehicle comes with a bunch of added features, but anyways they seem to be the usual brochure stuff and nothing else.
|Engine||2.2-litre, four-cylinder, VARICOR Diesel|
|Peak Power||154.2bhp @ 4,000rpm|
|Peak Torque||400Nm @ 1,700rpm – 2,700rpm|
|Transmission||6-speed Manual or 6-speed Automatic|
|Fuel Tank Capacity||60-litre|
Apart from the specifications and price comparison, there’s this thing called the presence and the feel of the vehicle that makes it more special to the owner. XUV 500, the vehicle which was released around 5 plus years ago. It still happens to be a better choice than the Tata Hexa.
