Top-of-the-line safety features include 6 airbags, ABS and ESP, offered by an Indian carmaker for the first time. Besides, the chassis frame comprising advanced hydro formed members, a stiffened body cage, and dual zone collapsible steering make the Aria one of the safest vehicles," said an official release from Tata Motors.

The Best SUV I witnessed
Comment by Yogendra Bavdekar on Thu, Jan 13th, 2011 at 1:43 PM
Tata drawbacks are that they manufacture their SUVs with such low-end engines. Safari - 2.2L, Aria - 2.2L, Sumo - 2.2L. Only Spacio - 3L. Tata wants to beat Toyota Innova. How is that possible? Toyota Innova - 2.5L. Toyota Qualis - 2.4L. Even Mahindra Bolero - 2.5L, Scorpio - 2.6L CRDeTata needs to improve on this though it provides with DICOR engines. I dont think Aria is CRDi engine.

I love TATA safari but this is more than safari. It is India’s 1st crossover so i’m proud on this Mr. TATA good design. I love it.

Tata Aria has excellent exteriors. The TATA name would help this product to move in market & I am sure it will create a dent on Innova’s market.

I like tata aria and I think it will be a successful SUV in the Indian market.

Interior has got looks of Dodge Journey and exterior looks like Toyota Odessey. Looks good!
Comment by Azin on Sat, Jul 17th, 2010 at 8:08 PM
Tata Aria looks same as the Toyota Innova and it does not have a tough look like a SUV but quality is improved in all aspects.tata motors should redesign sierra with a sporty look and should relaunch as it could be a great success.
Comment by Shekhar Chaudhari on Thu, Jul 15th, 2010 at 12:06 PM
The side view design of Tata ARIA is very good but the back side looks like Tata SUMO or Mahindra XYLO. I suggest you should change the same like Chevrolet CAPTIVA.
Comment by NIshikant Chaudhari on Thu, Jul 15th, 2010 at 11:59 AM
As the price of Tata Aria is said to be more than Toyota Innova, so it should compete to the Chevrolet’s SUV model Captiva. By changing some rear view, it will get awesome look within the good price than captiva.
Comment by Neeraj Bagga on Sun, Jun 20th, 2010 at 12:16 PM
It is copy of Toyota Innova and a copy should be cheaper than original.
Comment by parin shah on Sun, Jun 13th, 2010 at 12:36 AM
Tata Motors company is the father of all types of cars (suv, sedan, muv, hatchback). No competition in all over world. Tata is the best.
Comment by Jayasingh,R on Tue, Jun 1st, 2010 at 10:02 PM
The same Indica look is boring and I hate that. Why don't it be changed. A look like Audi or Fortuner will be appreciated
Comment by asdf on Fri, Apr 30th, 2010 at 8:17 PM
It looks very nice and stylish. Its a good competitor for Chevrolet Tavera.
Comment by ramana Shiu on Thu, Apr 15th, 2010 at 7:36 PM
The Safari is 200mm wider. It has 50mm more ground clearance. It weighs a lot more and has stately suspension. I am an elderly 220kg. Tata Aria may be better appointed, but the Safari will be a lot more comfortable for me.
Comment by abcd on Tue, Mar 9th, 2010 at 10:18 PM
wikipedia says the weight is 1920Kgs!
Comment by sumeet on Mon, Mar 8th, 2010 at 11:18 AM
the car look nice but front glass is too inside tht dosent sot to luzorious look .and depend on lonch and performance
Comment by Sashe Kumar on Sat, Mar 6th, 2010 at 3:22 PM
It is ok for competition with Mahindra XYLO and Chevrolet Tavera but it’s not enough to compete with Toyota Innova or Toyota Fortuner. Tata must go one more step forward with the redesign of its own sierra which can compete with Mitsubishi Pajero and Chevrolet Captiva.
Comment by Priyan George on Tue, Mar 2nd, 2010 at 7:59 AM
Well finished design from tata motors. We can see the quality in everything and I am sure it will beat all MUV and SUV.
Comment by Pravin on Fri, Feb 19th, 2010 at 6:52 PM
This is good move from TATA as there is no other such vehicle other than Safari from Tata. This will not replace Innova due to price tag and total available inside space. Available features are more suitable for private use and not for tourist vehicles but this will definately impact CR-V and fortuner market in India.
Comment by Mohammed Barkat Ali on Thu, Feb 18th, 2010 at 2:58 PM
The Design is awesome
Comment by Ashish khaire on Mon, Feb 1st, 2010 at 6:29 PM
Tata has always been reliable and most trusted brand in India and I think people will definitely go for Tata Aria, even if price ranges high compared to Toyota Innova. Its awesome!
Comment by RENJU on Wed, Jan 20th, 2010 at 5:25 PM
The vehicle have resemblance with Toyata Innova but comparing to Innova the price of Tata Aria is high by looking all the features.
