It is never easy for a social and public person like me to stay indoors. But it has been a great experience. One thing is more care for the family and also for our personal belongings. That thought brought me to go out, of course keeping in mind hashtagsocialdistancing and see how my cars are doing?
My car is always parked outside. And there was rain one day and another day sand storm and followed by foggy morning on another day!. The weather here is unpredictable!. It was not a good sight and sound (when I started the engine after several days).
I did a thorough personal check and cleaning and back home checked online the precautions to be taken during such a long lock down to our cars.
Presenting to you my findings in the form of a presentation. Share it, if you feel it is of value to your contacts.
Personal request to all is to show signs here that you are all there. Wave and show your presence. It is only physical lock down and there is no dearth for creativity.

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.
