Report – Tata Aria to get increased output and added features
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Our friends at Motorbash.com have published brochure scans of an improved Tata Aria which is believed to go on sale in a short while. The official website has not been updated yet.
While the engine is the same 2.2-liter unit, it gets VARICOR technology that uses a single mass flywheel (as opposed to dual mass flywheel on the current Aria). The power and torque outputs stand at 150 PS (up from 140 PS) and 320 Nm whereas the fuel efficiency has improved to 15.05 kmpl (up from 13.7 kmpl) in the ARAI driving cycle.
Feature content on the 2014 Tata Aria is higher with dual parabola headlamps, Harman music system designed exclusively for the car, clear lens blinkers and new body graphics added to the list. The car would continue selling in Pure, Pleasure and Pride (AWD) variants.
On the 2014 model, the maroon body colour is discontinued and the crossover is presented in three shades – Pearl White, Quartz Black and Arctic Silver.
Features that were available at the launch continue to accompany the car, namely 6 airbags, 4 disc brakes, ABS and EBD, dual AC, cruise control, all-wheel drive, multimedia navigation and Bluetooth telephony.
Pricing details are currently unavailable, but reports say that the vehicle will be in showrooms by the end of March.
