Xover what we called till now has been rechristened the Aria by Tata and will be a premium, spacious MPV.
The lines at the front are as the Tata Indica Vista and the Indigo Manza. There is nothing intresting about the new vehicle as the design, but it sure looks good and a sensible machine.
Powered by a 2.2 –litre DICOR engine, the Aria will have 140 horses and 320Nm of twist. Transmission will be done by a newly developed 5-speed system which also features a ‘torque on demand’ 4×4. The interior looks nice – much better than the Tata machines available. The quality and finish of plastics leaves quite ok. The Aria is big on space, and the price will create waves in the MUV vehicles market.
Traction control, six airbags, ABS with EBD and rain sensing wipers are things that have been unheard on any Indian vehicle. Apart from these features, the Aria will come loaded with luxury features such as climate control cruise control, electronic trip computer and loads of other gadgets.
If price sounds good the Aria is capable of winning the market share from the premium MUVs & SUVs.
