Tata Hexa Engine
A 2.2-litre diesel engine is offered in the Tata Hexa. It comes with a 148bhp engine and 154bhp option. The first one comes with a five-speed manual, and the more powerful one has two options: a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The NVH levels on the engine are relatively low. The torque of the engine is more than sufficient for the daily driving. It doesn’t require too many gear shifts in city or highway driving.
 The six-speed manual is a bit notchy. It does take some getting used too. Manual comes with the four driving modes in the 4×4. These are Auto, Comfort, Rough Road, and Dynamic. The Auto and Rough Road are 4×4, while other two work on the 4×2.
 The automatic transmission is fabulous. The shifts are smooth even downshifts. Put it in the Sports mode, and you shall be amazed in the manner it performs. Also, there is a Tiptronic mode that responds well.
