Thanks, nice video.

However I can't help wondering if its in the right thread. The profile etc looks so much like Aria, but far far better looking than the current avatar. If one looks closely, many of the body panels are similar to that of Aria.

Overall a good makeover of Aria, if at all its launched.

Confirms that it is a redesigned Aria. Like the looks though, compared to the current Aria. Face is more contemporary and the blackened D pillar with small bits added and redesigned lights give it a much more premium look than the christmas tree lights in the current car.

Some Photos from Indian Autos Blog. it looks much better than aria. Though Aria is a looker but feels outdated infront of XUV500. Hexa looks macho now.

One word- AWESOME! This can really be a game changer for TML in the Perception stakes IF they don't screw up the pricing and ensure good after-sales!

Yes, the Hexa is to the Aria what the Bolt is to the Vista.

It remains to be seen if Tata can rejuvenate the Aria by giving it the Horizonext treatment.

The middle-row "captain seats" would be welcomed by many potential buyers in this segment.

Edit (after the pictures were added): It's a good make-over and it looks much different now. It's good that the "Christmas tree" tail lamps have been replaced by something much more modern. And Harman was given the task of designing the ICE for this one as well.

Unlike the Bolt, the rear pillar blackening has been executed very well on the Hexa!

Love the face. If only the storme gets this front face, it will change the character of the SUV.

Was waiting for the Zest treatment on the Aria and it came earlier than expected.
The front looks superb especially with that deep mysterious eyes, hope the headlight makes it to production. But except for the awesome front end not mightily impressed by the styling especially the rear. The old one even with x'mas lights had character.

This one looks like one of countless crossovers and the dashboard too looks quite ordinary and Scorpio-ish, though from the pics the quality seems to have gone even further up. The old dash style with vents on the sides of a big screen would have looked premium, also the steering...meh..not the Zest one please.

But for all my nitpicking, with the 158bhp dicor and 6a/t this one will be in our garage next year instead of the next gen Innova. Way to go Tata.

(Now, can't wait to see which is the all new car to be shown tomorrow)

This is the best looking TATA till date. But knowing them, Hexa will not be launched before 2020. They took aged to launch Storme and taking even more to launch the much awaited face-lift. The long wait eventually kills the novelty factor as well as enthusiasm.

IMO this is what the Aria should have been from day one, minus that dreaded DMF front suspension (if I recall the term correctly). Aria for its feminine front, & with old school Christmas tail lamps design that would shoo away most buyers.

This one is metrosexual, butch yet classy to separate it from other SUVs.

This is quite a good looking car, and assuming that its on the Aria platform, I am sure it will have a lot of space too! I like the front styling.

As for when its going to hit the market, its anybody's guess! I would like to drive around in one, if they have brought in the same level of improvements in interiors and fit and finish, as they did in the Zest/Bolt..

Unlike other concepts, this one looks almost production ready.

We spotted a vehicle under cover inside their lab during our plant visit. It's profile looked almost like this one/Aria.
