Last year, Tata Motors had launched the Hexa and the big, butch SUV quickly became the game changer for the Indian carmaker. And since then, the SUV has been under the radar. Now though, the Hexa is in the news. No, it hasn’t been recalled or anything like that. Rather, the Indian carmaker has launched a new variant called the XM+. At Rs 15.27 lakh (ex-showroom), the new XM+ trim is Rs 1.08 lakh more expensive than the XM.

But for that extra amount, you get almost all the features that you get in the top-of-the-line XT trim. The XM+ variant gets restyled 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, fog lamps, auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and electrical ORVMs.

“The Hexa has successfully established itself as a great lifestyle SUV and with the launch of the Hexa XM+, we are further strengthening this product range by offering more to our customers. We are confident that the XM+ will take brand Hexa a step ahead towards delighting our customers,” says S. N. Barman, VP, sales, marketing and customer support, passenger vehicles business unit, Tata Motors.

Tata has just added a new variant, so don’t expect any mechanical changes. It still uses the same 2.2-litre diesel engine. The oil-burner produces 148bhp and 320Nm of torque and is paired to a six-speed manual gearbox. It gets three drive modes – Auto, Comfort and Rough Road. In terms of safety, the XM+ is equipped with two airbags at the front, ABS with EBD, a reverse parking camera, cruise control and corner stability control.

In other news, Tata is all set to launch an all-new five-seater SUV called the Harrier. This all-new offering from the Indian carmaker will sit on Land Rover’s D8 platform and will be powered by an FCA-sourced 2.0-litre diesel engine. Yes, the same one which we have seen on the Jeep Compass.
