The car sure has presence. A black Aria with blacked out windows like the Escalades in the movies would be a total head turner

Car looks impressive. Its just the rear look that needed some more attention.
Maybe some chrome bits will help enhance the look.

It indeed is the Aria. A thread already runs on this.

The side back (C pillar) looks very weird to me :(

Agree with you 100%. They seem to stuck with that same frontal look....

Good catch amitk2kin & your photography skills are also good, for your could manage these images while driving ( avoid use of mobile while at the wheel).

There is another thread for the Aria... Mods please merge this with the original one.

Somehow, the Golden/ Golden Beige shade does not work for the Aria, IMO. Otherwise it looks much better than the what is being offered by Tata & competitors.

The C pillar does seems like the ones on indica, assures it to be a tata product. Pretty sure it must be the aria.

Looks quite imposing, though a bit plain as far as design approach is concerned.

That rear door looks a bit weird, with it covering the wheel arch as well. wont it cause mud on the door sides? I thought rear doors usually left the wheel arches alone... Wondering how it will look with the rear door open..

Nice find buddy! By the way what car were you driving? Just wanted to compare the sizes! The c pillar resembles CR-V. The car does look BIG Will TATA crack this segment too like the MANZA ?

Tata seems to be improving on the surface finish & the panel gaps ! Even the chrome trims on the doors seem to be aligned pretty well !

TATA's obsession with the front grill makes sense to me.
Lot many other car makers are keep the same looks alive, look at BMW, how much has the design changed over the years. They sell almost the same design at a variety of pricepoints - ranging from 25 L to 75 L, but nobody is complaining.
Also look at the new Chevrolet corporate look, which they compare it to a cheetah, all their future cars are going to sport the same look.

The vehicle looks solid and imposing. However, this colour fails to impress me. It is somewhat unimpressive and dull.

The lining on the lower windowline looks poorly fitted, maybe because this is a test vehicle.
