There are two things that come to my minds after seeing these pics.
One cannot help but commend the improvement in the level refinement in the cabin
that TATA has achieved. Gone are coarse looking plastics, poor finishing and panel gaps.
It appears that TML will using this vehicle for European market and the fit and finish is upto level thus. Indian customer is sure gonna be pampered here.

Second, in the last pic posted by Rehaan, it appears there is very less space between
the person's thighs and steering wheel. It seems the steering wheell lies in the lap of the driver. I doubt it to be a comfortable position for the driver.

Those who have seen the vehicle please elaborate.

I might agree with you Akki but then try telling that to the mags who have already published it in their monthly editions

Headlight, and the side profile section behind C pillar a big let down.

Otherwise looks ok in pictures. I hope they get the "fit and finish" right.

Edit:- 17+ pages in less than 24 hours - looks that some things are more popular than YetiBlogs!!!! :-P

@Raj_5004
I wish I could get a better picture, this is what i could find from motoroids. The second row does seem adequate. But not sure about the 3rd row.

however i do agree that pics do not reveal everything.

so even i am eagerly waiting for reviews from someone who have actually sat in the Aria.

With AWD, Traction Control, ESP and 6 airbags, definitely ARIA would make a great candidate for transport business. Maybe someone here uses a Fortuner as a shared cab to work.

My observation from pictures: In tata Aria, look at the size of the seat. Under thai support is huge. If you compare the seat length from back (where we rest our back) to front, in tata Aria it is more than Xylo or innova. That's the reason empty space we see is less. But comfort wise i think Aria would be much better in this seat arrangements.

Looks like the seating has been designed for our Indian average height between 5'5 and 5'9.

The seats seem to require more cushioning -

Sadly - no dead pedal.
