All those planning to buy a Multi Utility Vehicle (MUV) would soon have another option to check out. Tata motors is coming out with Tata Aria on 11th October this year with an approximate price tag of Rs 10 to 14 lakh. The MUV is expected to be a cross-over with features common to premium SUVs . Aria is build on the roadster concept and it is Tata's attempt to cement its position in the premium vehicle segment. Aria is equipped with a 2.2L, DICOR (Direct Injection Common Rail) engine (same as Tata Safari) capable of producing 140bhp of maximum power at 4000rpm with 320Nm of maximum torque at 1700~2700rpm. Tata Aria is expected to be launched in three variants and all variants will be available with both 4WD (Four Wheel Drive) and 2WD (Two Wheel Drive Option).
Tata has worked hard for the looks of Tata Aria and is trying to provide the customers utmost luxury they deserve. The leather covered steering wheel, gear shift knob, leather seats, headrest mounted LCD screen, power and tilt steering, power windows at all four doors, automatic climate control AC, keyless entry, advanced CD/MP3 audio system, cup holders on floor console, cigarette lighter and ash-tray in front console, rear wash and wiper, electrical glass demister, digital outside temperature indicator, etc are some of the features of all new Tata Aria. Aria's turn indicators and headlamps clubbed together in the front, the chrome upper grille, which is traditionally Tata, the curves on the bonnet and side combined with opposing wipers at both end and the body colour side view mirror rod are the main elements that lend Aria its looks.
Aria's main features
* Automatic climate control
* Dual Air Conditioner
* Parking Sensors
* Built-in GPS system
* 6 SRS Airbags
* ABS with ESP
* Alloy wheels
* Multi-functioning steering wheel
With Aria Tata Motors is trying to repeat the success of Safari and is not leaving any stone unturned by providing stylish looks, power and performance. Even the exterior and interior features provide utmost luxury, comfort and safety. However, the third row has less legroom and the rear is not much impressive. But Tata is known to improve as it goes and Tata Aria is not a bad option if it fits your bill.
