Tata Aria Crossover


The Indian giant TATA Motors, who by the way owns Jaguar and Land Rover, has released a new model mainly for their domestic market called the Aria.

It looks like a van and has the same sort of dimensions and interior space as a full size SUV, but Tata is adamant that the Aria is a crossover! It actually seems to the front-end of Nissan Murano glued to the back-end of an estate.

It does have some good features though. For starters, it has seven full size seats, Luxurious premium leather upholstery & three-row theatre-style flexible seating, Selectable 4×4 with Torque-on-Demand System, Electronic Stability Programme with Traction Control System to maintain stability, 6 airbags to protect occupants from every side, In-dash GPS-based Navigation provides destination guidance …

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, there’s much more to it.

The car is powered by a 2.2 litre Direct Injection Common Rail (DICOR) engine, with variable turbine technology and 32-bit ECU delivers 140 PS power and 320 Nm torque. It is equipped with a dual mass flywheel which isolates torsional vibrations from the powertrain, thus providing a NVH free environment in the cabin.

AS an exercise for Tata, the Aria is actually quite good, you could call it the Indian Range Rover!
