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.[1] 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.[2]


Tata Aria is a blending of an MPV, Sedan and an SUV.[3] 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.

To ensure that the model offers the finesse of a sedan, Tata Motors shipped one of the units to its UK subsidiary - Jaguar-Land Rover (JLR) - to enhance Aria's fittings and finish. Designed with an eye on international markets, the vehicle meets European safety standards.[4]

Design,body and trim options

The exterior design of this vehicle is very subjective. Indian reviewers have reported it as very attractive. It looks unmistakably a Tata. The Aria is spacious on the inside as is expected from a big crossover. The dashboard is smart, functional and modern looking. The top-end version comes with features such as satellite navigation, CD changer, bluetooth connectivity, USB/aux-in port, a reverse camera with parking sensors, eight airbags, climate control, cruise control and for the first time in a Tata, an Electronic Stability Program and Traction Control system. The Aria uses a 2.2-litre DiCOR engine which produces 140 bhp.
