2011 Tata Aria MPV Revealed
First released as a concept at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005, Tata Aria will go on sale this year, according to official information provided by the Indian manufacturer.
As for technical specifications, power comes from a 2.2-liter Direct Injection Common Rail (DICOR) diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 140 PS and 320 Nm of torque.
Tata says the MPV is different from the other competitors on the market also thanks to the height of the car that allow passengers to "simply walk" inside the car "rather than climbing up or getting down into the compartment". And because we're already talking about the interior, the Indian manufacturer integrated a 3D surround system, dimming roof lamps, in-dash GPS with infotainment system, multifunctional steering wheel, dual arid conditions with automatic climate control and cruise control.
In terms of safety, the Aria boasts 6 airbags and ESP, "offered by an Indian OEM for the first time", as the company said in a statement.
"A chassis frame, constructed with advanced hydro formed members, coupled with a stiffened body cage, dual zone collapsible steering and airbags make the Tata Aria one of the safest vehicles in an exigency. It meets EEC safety regulations, which includes full frontal crash, offset crash and the side pole tests," the statement also reads.
Performance figures are expected to be released at a later date. Judging by the rumors, pricing will be in the 10,600-15,150 Euro range.

Automatic transmission version with cooler (fridge) is an advantage rather than option of GPS option. Everyone like to drink something cool while travelling, the cooler will help like Tata Landcruser/Prado in other countries.
Look are good. But, I would like to suggest if u can modify the mouth piece. It look a bit too big.
May be u can mix a bit of toyota altis face
