Airbags and ABS as standard features across variants. That's superb move by Tata.

The lowest Aria variant seems to be more equipped than the highest variants of Innova and Xylo. Wonder, what would it be priced at?

Read somewhere that TATA had sent ARIA to JLR for doing final touch on interiors

Saw one Aria in the Concorde Motors, Sanat Nagar, Hyderabad workshop today. It was the same dark brown color. Has a two-tone color scheme in the dash. Two things that struck me: has good ground clearance and the roof is very low. Looks like a tall person will have to guard the head in the middle row.

All the service center guys were swarming on it and they didn't have any clue as to the pricing or the date of launch.

Guys, Who ever wants to go for the Pride, please wait & watch for working of the Cruise Control function before you go for it.

Actually, Cruise control isnt really required in our conditions.

Pics are not that sharp. But from what I read, its a pure VFM product. Once again kudos to Tata. All the features are in my wanted list. If the service of Tata improves, I'm sure this is going to rock the Indian market. One more thing to test is, stablility & body roll on high speeds.

The scoop king at work again

Pillar mounted AC vents on third row! Is that a first in our market?
The list of features looks exhaustive but I would reserve my judgement till we get to know the variants which have them.

Tata's most feature rich product yet with a pretty hefty price tag of 13-16 lacs.Uncharted territory for Tata.Hope they can overcome the TataProblems because the product,I think is fantastic on paper and I hope it gains acceptance in the market

.My words.


I would think 10 times before plonking 16L on a Tata product. God forbid, if Aria has those trademark TATA niggles, they would have it.

Yes. its the price of TATA that may keep buyers from ARIA. Innova may not have the features that ARIA may have but has the reliability and best A.S.S from toyota.
We can only hope whether TATA can make it winner among the competition.

Cool, even the low end version is so fully loaded!
But, it's written that the AWD is standars across the range. Isn't a 2WD only(RWD) option also to be available?
