With the Mahindra XUV500 Facelift's launch, there is now a new option available for buyers who are looking for a car that is powerful and can carry a family in comfort. Tata Hexa too has been a well sought after car in this segment.

The front end of the facelifted XUV500 features a new chrome grille with a mesh design. There’s a large chrome strip around the grille, and the top part of the strip is flanked by new twin-pod headlamps with projectors and LED DRLs. The bottom of the strip splits the air dam in two. The fog lamps are retained from the current-gen model and are placed below the headlamps, with a vertical chrome strip and L-Shaped design.
The rear section of the XUV500 facelift features a new tailgate design and tail lamp clusters. Triangular shaped tail lights have replaced the vertically stacked taillights, while the reflectors are placed lower down. The bumper is also redesigned, as evident beneath the cover, while the tail-gate also gets a new chrome number plate garnish. Other details include a roof spoiler with an integrated high-mount stop light.

The Tata Hexa has visual similarities to the Tata Aria. That’s because the car is built on the same platform and has received the new ‘Impact’ styling. The honeycomb grill is accentuated by the chrome strip running under it. The Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are cleverly integrated with the fog lamps and the flared wheel arches with smoked projector headlamps give the car a strong stance. The Hexa gets ample cladding all around with sharper lines and chrome, giving it a more SUV-like feel as compared to an MPV.
Interestingly, the Hexa’s wheelbase is identical to the Aria but the car on a whole is longer, taller and wider. The rear end of the car has a large chrome strip which continues all the way to the outside rear view mirrors. The wrap around tail lamps has an OLED strip, giving the car a premium appearance.
