The Tata Aria is a crossover SUV produced by Tata Motors of India. Tata Aria was launched on 5 January 2010 at Auto Expo, Delhi, and was launched to customers on 12 October 2010 and priced at 13-15 lakhs Indian Rupees. It is based upon the Tata Xover concept showcased in 2006 Geneva Motor Show. Tata Aria was also a series of concept cars introduced by Tata Motors at Geneva Auto Show 2000.
Tata Aria is a blending of an MPV, Sedan and an SUV. It comes with seating arrangement of three rows and features such as 3D surround sound, dimming roof lamps, in-dash built in GPS, infotainment system, multifunctional steering wheel, dual air conditioning with automatic climate control and cruise control whereas safety features include 6 airbags, ABS and ESP, the chassis frame comprising advanced hydro formed members, a stiffened body cage, and dual zone collapsible steering.
