In a latest update, we have received the exclusive details of the upcoming 2014 Tata Aria which will be launched in India very shortly. No, it is not the exact replica of what international Aria is but it still carries a lot of betterments, the prime-most being a more powerful engine.
Here is the list of key changes:
- Gets 2.2L VARICOR diesel engine
- Power bumped 10PS to 150PS
- ARAI rated fuel efficiency increased to 15.05kmpl
- Red (maroon) colour discontinued
- New stickers on the body
- Clear-lens side blinkers
- Harmon Kardon music system
The new updated 2014 Aria gets the same 2.2L diesel engine but in the VARICOR form (earlier Aria gets a DICOR motor) in an improved state of tune. On the new Aria, it produces 150PS of power output but the same 320Nm of torque. So, though the 2014 Aria gets a 10PS bump in power, this is not the international tune where Aria produces a very impressive 400Nm of torque. The retuning has also helped Tata achieve a higher 15.05kmpl of ARAI rated fuel efficiency which was 13.5kmpl in the earlier variant.
The new Aria also gets dual parabola projector headlamps along with premium Harmon music system which has been tailor-made to suit Aria’s interiors. Apart from this the 2014 Aria gets clear-lens side blinkers and we also see usage of new graphics from the brochure we have attached.
Tata has also worked on the interiors of the car and the quality will is expected to be better than the outgoing model. Apart from this, according to our sources we have learnt that there is also a minor increase in the leg space as well as the plastic/fibre quality used.
2014 Tata Aria Colours:
In the new iteration, Tata has discontinued the maroon colour in the Aria and it will be available only in three colour options:
- Pearl White
- Quartz Black
- Arctic Silver
2014 Tata Aria Price
Though the actual prices are not known to us right now, Tata is expected to place it right under the Innova. According to one our our source, prices may start from Rs 10.15 Lakhs for the entry level variant and the top of the line Aria may just end up being a match to Innova’s price.
2014 Tata Aria Launch
The launch is about to take place within a month or so.
2014 Tata Aria Brochure
Attached here is the brochure of upcoming Tata Aria which reveals all the variants and variantwise features of the crossover.
Yes, like you, we have also noted the discrepancies in the soft brochure attached here. Here are the gaffes from the communication department:
- There is a mismatch in text and displayed colour for white. (Confirmation: The text is correct. Aria will be available in white)
- Side blinkers on both the Aria’s on different pages are different. Once carries clear lens and the other is the regular orange. (Confirmation: New 2014 Aria will get the clear-lens side blinkers)
With this exclusive busting we have revealed that the Tata Aria has not disappeared and it will be launched in our country, very soon. However, we are still awaiting any confirmation on the speculated (and caught) Aria AT.
