Changes purely cosmetic in nature.

PT Tata Motors Distribusi Indonesia is showcasing a modified version of the Tata Aria at the ongoing 2014 Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS 2014). The SUV is given bumper extensions with a lower chin, a new expressive grille, large chrome wheels, side skirts, rear spoiler and wider tires.

The modified Aria, based on a lower variant, gets bumper extensions and chrome wheels.

Inside, the dashboard and door handles of the car receive a faux wood finish, while the seats get a tan leather-like upholstery. Mechanically though, the Aria sees no changes. It continues to be powered by the 2.2-liter diesel engine which is good for 140 PS (138.02 bhp) and 320 Nm of torque. Indonesia is yet to get the updated Aria which sees a 10 PS increase in power.

    What is this? Kill it with fire.
    This and the modified Vista is proof positive that Tata Motors is still living in the 90s when any metal extensions cobbled together was called as a modification.
    Tata Motors has not changed. Now that Slym – the one guy not raised rationing out trucks – is gone Tata Motors is back to their old ways. They could not lose market share faster if they tried to.
    Great Job team.
