It is definitely huge, it should be the replay to Fortuner from TATA. Considering it is AWD, Traction control, and the number of air bags definitely pointing toward the price tag. it should be a 10+ lakh vehicle for sure.

Good work Dippy and the dash looks a notch better than innova.
Great work Tata and what's the price

Thanks for the Pictures Dippy.

The third row seats seem to be cramped a bit. I liked the dashboard and features like foldable tray and boxes on roof to store handy tools, imp. papers, etc. The feature that impressed me the most is the All Wheel Drive.

Looks good and neatly packaged.
From the pics it seems, third row seats hardly have any legroom.

AWD first of its kind by an Indian car maker I think. TATA's must have put in a lot of effort, I wish them all the luck. Finally the wait is over.

The interior is unlike any other big Tata vehicle. It looks well put together. The dash and the steering wheel are straight from the Land Rover DNA.

Hey thanks Dippy, was looking forward for the pics. The car looks quite decent, but must agree tata has really come out well with their Vista, Manza and now ARIA. Am now keenly awaiting for its OTR reviews.

Thanks Dippy.
WOW.... the car looks fantastic!

6 Airbags, ABS, Traction Control,
All Wheel Drive,17 Inch wheels,Opposing wipers
All wheel disk(First in indian MUV),
Lots of storage area,Leather warped steering wheel,
Pilar mount A/C control for the last row.
A fantastic package and fit and finish looks decent too!
Dashboard is good.

i think the projector head lamp is gone or i think it should be on topend varient.

That's one monster out there! Nice front. Rear is not appealing though. Didn't like the interiors as well, especially the dash. Beige-gray combo doesn't seem to work well here. Also steering looks like polished steering of 10 year old car.

Though Aria doesn't sound to take on innova, but still if Aria is priced over innova, it might not sell well as expected.

Personally, interior-wise I'm quite disappointed.
