Tata Hexa Specifications

The Hexa borrows its engine from the Tata Safari Varicor. As a result, it is powered by a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. This engine is available in two states of tune: the VARICOR 320 with 148 BHP and 320 Nm of torque on the entry-level XE variant, and the VARICOR 400 on the XM and XT variants. The former gets a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the later is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed auto. While lower variants are offered in a 4×2 setup, the top-end XT variant gets an AWD system as an option.

Tata Hexa Mileage

Interestingly, Tata Motors didn’t announce the mileage of the Hexa during its launch. When we got the official Press Release later today, it mentioned that the ARAI fuel efficiency figures for the Hexa are 14.4 km/l. But for which variant? There are a slew of powertrain options available with the SUV, but Tata didn’t bother mentioning which variant is the aforementioned mileage for. As a result, we had to personally contact with the folks at Tata Motors to get the required information.

So, here are the official mileage figures of the Tata Hexa SUV, exclusively available at Autosite India:

Hexa Manual 11.4 km/l
Hexa Automatic 14.4 kml
