Tata Hexa Drive Review – Tata Motors #HexaExperience in Hyderabad

Tata Hexa Drive Review – Tata Motors #HexaExperience in Hyderabad

A monstrous elegance, a beast that is powered with sporty looks and a powerful machine, is how, I would describe the Tata Hexa Drive experience.

Tata Motors Hexa Drive Review Ananth V

Tata Motors Hexa

I was invited to Test drive the all new Hexa from Tata Motors in Hyderabad and I drove a total of 130+ Kms across various locations that were open roads, massive highways, city traffic roads, rough terrain areas etc.

Being an auto enthusiast since ages and having driven scores of brands of vehicles across India, I can honestly say that the all new Hexa is a true power packed SUV with a ride quality and an impeccable off-road ability like no other.

A radically different styling, with a monstrous elegance based on the ‘Impact’ design philosophy, which I experienced first hand with the Tata Motors Tiago test drive of 70 kms in Goa during the previous year.

The Tata’s design team tested and executed these by connecting with their design teams across Italy, UK and India has without a doubt managed to design perfection with a balanced sporty look and tough exuberance.

It has a massively gorgeous front grille, stunning projector headlamps and a bonnet that gives it’s driver a feel of being majestic as he or she takes control of the wheel. One thing you can be sure of while driving this magnificent beast it that the pedestrians take notice of this beautiful automobile gliding through the streets and powerfully imposing it’s arrival to the onlookers. 

At the rear, there’s a chrome finish slat that is flanked by the sleek wraparound across beautiful LED tail lamps that stands distinct. Another cool looking design feature is the rear twin-exhaust chrome pipes which look truly sporty and elegant.

Transmission: Auto and Manual: 6 speed

There are two transmissions on offer – a manual and an automatic and I drove both. I drove around 40 Kms of the Automatic and 90 kms of the Manual version. Both are simply magnificent.

They are six-speeders and the very first thing you would notice with this power packed machine is that the “Power” builds up fairly easily as you start accelerating. The gorgeous steering gives you complete control over the roads and while driving it, wherever it was possible and permitted, I took the Hexa upto three-digit speeds and the most amazing part of it was the fact that none of us in the vehicle could actually feel that we were driving at that speed, it was that effortless.

At all times, the vehicle feels completely in control and one of the wonderful passengers who was riding with me, even took a small nap as he dozed off during this long 150+ kms overall drive to and fro and the first thing he said when he woke up was, “the drive was so smooth, I did not even realize I dozed off, I loved it.”

The Hexa gives you multiple modes to drive with. There are modes where the revs are held for longer and the engine and gearbox literally “learn”as the vehicle adapts to the driving conditions.

On the manual drives, the Hexa delivered awesome features called the ‘Super Drive Modes: DYNAMIC, COMFORT, ROUGH ROADS and AUTO’.

One can experience these by simply rotating a dial.

For eg. In the Auto mode, the car adapts itself to the road and driving conditions whereas in the Comfort mode, it slips into RWD which is better for fuel efficiency. On the Rough Roads mode, one can sense that the monstrous beast has powered up more to the front of the vehicle while giving great control in tough terrains and finally my favourite, the Dynamic mode, which is the mode you would switch to, in order to awaken the beast within you and push the power and speed of the car to the ultimate test. I could feel the engine and the acceleration as the car zoomed past the massive open roads in this mode at blinding pace but at all times, ensuring the driver has complete control of the vehicle.

Coolest features: Interior:

Tata Motors Hexa Drive Review Ananth V

Loved the way the seats are designed. It’s luxury, comfort and control all in one. The seats are really high-up in the Hexa. There is enough space inside to host a party, just joking, but seriously, it is one of the most spacious cars I have ever driven with great luxury, comfort and power. It’s truly fully loaded adrenaline pumping power packed feature machine, for eg, the mood lighting feature.

Tata Motors Hexa Drive Review Ananth V

The console of Hexa houses a 5-inch colour screen and has yet another monstrous awesome mind blowing feature, the JBL 10-speaker audio system from Harman. This system when connected to your smartphone streams navigation data onto the Hexa’s infotainment screen.

Finally, I also experienced the off-road with Hexa and let me tell you, it was off the hook!

The car showcased abilities as I was perched in the seats in a 21 degree angle tilted and still completely comfortable and the vehicle smoothly powered back to the original driving angle. It’s ability to drive uphill, downhill with the touch of a button in the car was astounding and spectacular. The power to drive through potholes that looked like craters on Mars which were specially built to test how tough these powerful 19 inch alloy wheels can withstand. It drove through toughest terrains, deep potholes, angled up in the side and yes, my favorite, the ability of the vehicle to break and stop its power mode instantaneously and halt abruptly but, in complete control, showcases how much efforts have gone into the technical design and what level of engineering ingenuity has helped created this powerful vehicle ensuring comfort, space, luxury, stunning looks, adventure and safety, all in one!

Tata Motors Hexa Drive Review Ananth V

The manual is power packed and awesome, no doubt about it but yes, the automatic is truly the one which blew my mind away. It is without a doubt the most refined and addictive vehicle I have driven so far. The gear shifts are smooth, they transition truly the way they should. The turbo lag is also extremely well-controlled.

Tata Motors Hexa Drive Review Ananth V

As soon as you hit the ‘D’ mode while driving the Automatic, you instantaneously realize in your adventurous heart that this is where you truly belong.

#55SecsOrLess To Read: 5 Branding tips for content marketing using digital marketing

It’s no longer enough to have relevant and quality content. With scores of writers across websites writing exceptionally valuable and resourceful articles to extremely poor articles tells us that it’s not just about content anymore. Your network, contacts and connect makes a lot of difference when it comes to Branding yourself and your content to reach out across the right set of audiences.

Here are quick 5 Branding tips for content marketing using digital marketing:

#55SecsOrLess To Read: series starts for this post here:

content marketing digital marketing

Trending and Optimized: Write about Topics that are trending, relevant to your industry and valuable according to your readers. Do it constantly. Consistency is the key. Use the right keywords for optimized SEO.

PPC: Use Pay Per Click advertising models to reach out and promote across Facebook posts, Blog articles etc using Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, Twitter Ads, LinkedIn Advertising and re-share your content across these platforms.

Tag: Tag your friends and peers once in a while, eg. once in two months etc so that they are not annoyed via forced reciprocation to share your articles. Also, ensure to sincerely ask their views on the same (tag users who are related to that industry and use the destination site. Eg. They might be very active on instagram and twitter but not on LinkedIn or blog.) 

Reciprocate on sites like Twitter promptly: If you tag users, ensure you re-tweet or share their posts or add your comments too. There are too many users who keep incessantly tagging you to promote their content but when you do the same, they simply acknowledge with a reply to you and do not re-share or actually engage with the post on the destination site. Be aware and stay away from such users.

Use Rich media: Use images, infographics, video embeds, links etc to help them connect the topics and have a rich content consumption with relevant visuals.

Hope you found this useful.

#55SecsOrLess To Read: 7 tips for planning your Pay Per Click Digital Marketing campaigns

#55SecsOrLess To Read: 7 tips for planning your Pay Per click digital marketing campaigns

Pay Per Click PPC Campaigns

Pay Per Click campaigns or (PPC) as they are popular known among digital marketers, helps you as a Digital Marketing professional or an Organization or as a BRAND, to deliver optimized results. But the focus needs to be your GOALS and or Objectives.

#55Secs Or Less to Read Series begins here for 7 tips for planning your Pay Per Click Digital Marketing campaigns:

  1. First decide on your goals, then your target audience and only then focus on the platform or PPC model to use.
  2. Your industry will also decide on the responses from the PPC campaign, so understand your customer’s behavioral and response patterns well. For eg. for a Mental wellness or for Financial investment, asking a user to engage with you on a public platform might not be the right and subtle approach. Give them an option via your PPC campaign to connect discreetly and securely converse with you about their pain areas.
  3. Focus on target audiences based on digital marketing social media analytics and metrics. While creating an ad online,focus on “their areas of interest” rather than only across metrics such as location, age group, gender etc.
  4. Don’t randomly create a long term budget and automated ad. Rather, create ads on a day to day basis and monitor their reports daily to see what’s working and what’s not.
  5. Content plays a crucial role. Ensure your ad has valuable content that you as a brand or a marketer can offer to your end users. Remember, at all times, it’s about being social too.
  6. Customized Facebook ads can be optimized for various objectives, focused Google adwords can deliver results across targeted users, Twitter ads and gamification can do wonders when combined as one and so on.
  7. Ensure your site links are mobile optimized and your landing page has all the relevant data your prospect will need when they click on your ad. Keep their enquiry process or user experience on your landing page as simple as possible.

Hope you found this resourceful.

The Pilot, brings you a world without language barriers @waverlylabsinc

The Pilot, brings you a world without language barriers @waverlylabsinc

The Pilot Waverly Labs wearable technology language translator

The Pilot Waverly Labs

I love brands and technology products. Obviously, I am a big fan of wearable technology too.

But at the same time, I don’t enjoy if it takes out the “human connect and feel” from the experience. For eg. there is an innate joy in learning languages. Even if they are merely few key phrases from a different language, I enjoy speaking and or using those key phrases. It somehow creates an immediate connect.

When you learn someone’s local or native language and communicate, they are always joyous. I guess, it’s the effort that someone puts towards being a part of their culture, tradition, experience and of course, their native language too that helps in creating a mutual comfort.

Last year, I had joined French classes to formally learn the same and even though I ended up missing 65% of the sessions due to my rigid travel schedule, I still can start a conversation with someone in basic French and converse may be for few minutes or so. I do try to visit https://www.memrise.com/ and update and or upgrade my language learning skills from time to time too. In fact, my passion for learning languages has always been that way. Which is why, few years ago, I even got together with few of my peers, friends and colleagues to start a free language learning site where we shared few quick and key phrases that we had learned from different places and from meeting new people across countries, cities during our travel etc and posted them as a blog post, here is the link to that site: Learning Languages

Well, then why am I discussing this all of a sudden now?

Because, I happened to come across this lovely, wearable technology video and site that is beautiful with an ergonomic design and it assists people in communicating with each other by breaking down the language barrier.

Most importantly, it helps you avoid the awkwardness and dead air as you browse through the language translator book or app instead of looking at the person with whom you are actually conversing. Why? Because, all you need to do apparently  is look at them and speak in your own language and “The Pilot” translates it via their earpiece into the language they are comfortable conversing in. Wow!

This wearable tech is called, “The Pilot” from Waverly Labs Inc.

It combines “wearable technology with machine translation” and is said to be the “world’s first smart earpiece” which translates between users speaking different languages.

A world without Language barriers https://twitter.com/waverlylabsinc

It comes with an additional earpiece for wireless streaming music and an accompanying app, which toggles between languages.

About Waverly Labs: An innovative consumer electronics company created in 2014. 

Check out their awesome video here:


I know, with technology, there is always a part of the human connect missing, I agree.

But think about it this way, you can take your time out to learn new languages and have beautiful conversations with people across the globe, but when you are in a hurry and are visiting a foreign land for a brief period, a device as this one, could break down so many barriers as it brings you face to face communication with someone in a language that they are comfortable interacting and engaging into conversation with.

Do share your thoughts about this cool product, would love to hear from you.

Meanwhile, if you too, like me, enjoy sharing few quick and interesting phrases from various languages and would like to share a blog post on a language that you love speaking or communicating in, do feel free to drop a comment and you too can post a Guest Post here the link to Learning Languages (It’s a free site on a  free domain purely created for the fun of learning something new, especially for those who travel across countries and are always on the go!)

#55SecsOrLess To Read: 5 ways to invite legal ramifications in digital marketing

#55SecsOrLess To Read: 5 ways to invite legal ramifications in digital marketing

With so much of content being generated and available online, it’s only obvious to have an urge to re-share content that you find is useful, insightful, engaging and resourceful.

But there are rules to follow and abide by when it comes to promoting your own “ADS” using someone else’s content without their permission.

I love when users and readers re-share my content. I always make it a point to THANK THEM one way or another. 

At the same time, I am strictly against using someone else’s content for generating your own business or promotions without their written approval to do so, especially with auto-redirect url’s.

#55SecsOrLess to Read series BEGINS HERE for this post5 ways to “invite legal ramifications” in digital marketing and sabotage your brand:

pablo (2)

  1. Use others content or blog posts without their permission and add your own ADVERTISEMENTS with it with no due credit.
  2. Use someone else’s brand name or website link to push or boost your own brand as a “hidden url link that auto redirects to your sponsored site”. This is the worst of all, since in the above case you can at least remove the content if the brand or user opposes it and your promotion format is out in the open!
  3. Share contact details of your customers and or clients online.
  4. Tag digital influencers or social media users or professionals online with a sponsored creative ad without their permission. 
  5. Running a business and not familiarizing with the core rules of doing so. Repeating offense without any thought about it’s legal ramifications especially when third parties are involved and offended.

Of all the points above, point no.2 is worst.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse!

So ensure that you do not do any of the above 5 points to safeguard your brand and others. Grow with Mutual respect and recognition. Every one is putting their heart and soul into building something wonderful. Don’t take undue advantage. Instead, work amicably and grow together.

Have you experienced something like this? Do share your views.
