Tata Aria Revealed at the Auto Expo 2010:
The vehicle that started its life as the X-over concept has finally been presented to public in production ready form by Tata. What we called X-over till now has been rechristened the Aria by Tata and will be marketed as premium, spacious MPV with some interesting tech bits. The cross-over, as you can see, borrows some of the famial design lines of the Indica Vista and the Indigo Manza. The underpinnings come in the form of a 4×4 drive system and the 2.2-litre, 140PS, 320Nm DICOR mill. The Aria seats seven people and from what we saw at the expo, the interiors look stunning in flesh (more on that below)!
The Aria uses state-of-the-art safety tech like six airbags, ABS, EBD, ESP etc. on its top end variants. Creature comforts include rain-sensing wipers, light-sensing head and tail lights, surround sound entertainment system, built-in GPS, dual-stage aircon, climate control and cruise control. The Aria is slated to go on sale by April 2010 and will be take on the Xylo and the Innova.
The Xover follows the new Tata design language that features long, upswept tail-lamps. The lines at the front are reminiscent of the Tata Indica Vista and the Indigo Manza. There is nothing spectacular about the new vehicle as regards the external design, but it sure looks like a practical, sensible machine.
Powered by a 2.2 –litre DICOR engine, the Aria will boast 140 horses and 320Nm of twist. Transmission duties will be done by a newly developed 5-speed system which also features a ‘torque on demand’ 4×4. The interior design looks nice – much better than the Tata machines available on the market today. Go a little closer though, and you realize that the turnout isn’t all that great. The quality and finish of plastics leaves quite a bit to be desired. However, the Aria is big on space, and if priced right will create ripples in the MUV vehicles market.
The Aria is going to be a tech fest by Tata standards. It will feature the first ESP (electronic stability program) on a vehicle designed and developed by and Indian carmaker. Traction control, six airbags, ABS with EBD and rain sensing wipers are things that have been unheard on any Indian vehicle. Apart from these features, the Aria will come loaded with luxury features such as climate control cruise control, electronic trip computer and loads of other gadgets. If priced right, the Aria is capable of snatching the market share from not just some of the premium MUVs but also a few SUVs.
