Tata Motors has unveiled two new concepts at Geneva Auto Show 2015. The Tata Hexa and Tata Bolt Sport are next-gen versions of the Tata Aria and Tata Bolt respectively. We see that Tata is looking forward to build more sporty cars to compete against other automobile makers. We had recently seen Tata launching Bolt with Multidrive.
Now lets talk about the Bolt Sport. The Bolt Sport sports a tweaked 1.2-litre turbocharged Revotron engine that churns out 120PS of power and 170Nm of Torque. The increased power and torque is catered by redesigned exhaust and remapped ECU. The gear ratios too have been changed. Tata Bolt concept is now fitted with disc brakes on all the four wheels for enhanced safety. There are no details when the two concepts will be put in production.
The Tata Hexa is devised on the Tata Aria’s frame. It sports wheel arches, silhouette, ORVMs and twin exhausts. We also see that it has new designed grille, headlamps. Tata Hexa will be getting 19-inch wheels. We also see a upgraded cabin over the Aria with ambient mood lighting, a bigger touchscreen infotainment system six seats, dual tone upholstery comprise the prime highlights in the cabin and SUV-inspired split tail lamps. There is no change in the powerplant of this machine. The Hexa features the same 2.2-litre engine as that in new Aria. This engine delivers 400Nm of torque and 157PS of power. The Hexa was revealed with a manual transmission.
