TATA Aria – The first Indian crossover – Impressive
Tata Aria – A new breed. The first Indian crossover. The finesse of a sedan with the muscle of an SUV
Impressive indeed. I got an opportunity to test drive TATA ARIA. Expansive exterior and interiors, great seating comfort, excellent turning radius. It comes with all modern features including reverse camera, Dual HVAC with climate control, Infotainment system, GPS Navigation system, Rain Sensing Auto Wipers and Darkness Sensing Auto Head Lights, Driver’s Seating Electrically adjustable and foldable outer mirrors, Cruise Control, Luggage Compartment light, Sunvisor Extenders, Glove box chiller, Puddle Lamps (Foot step lamps), Follow me home approach lights, Bonnet auto lift, Rear wiper autowipe while reversing, 12 V power outlets, Flexible seating, Roof Centre bone utility bins, Plenty of Storage and stowage options
A great car to drive. The gear shifts in the initial gears (3-2 and then lower) was not very smooth, however, the overall drive was excellent, especially in the top gears. The electronic folding side mirrors could have been little more bigger and wider. These were the only two shortfalls I noticed during my test drive of this new beauty from TATA. The Pearl White color was royal.
TATA ARIA is going to give a tough fight to it’s foreign competitors. Price at Bangalore approximately Rs. 16 lakhs.
