Take a look at this Tata Aria, which now sits on a set of 19-inch wheels that have been borrowed from its successor, Tata Hexa. Furthermore, it gets a slew of other modifications
Tata Aria was the predecessor to the Hexa that was launched in the year 2017. However, Aria was launched 7 years before Hexa made its way to the Indian car market. Back in the days, it was the best to come out of Tata’s stable. Nevertheless, its expensive price tag and Tata’s poor after-sales & service acted as a big barrier in its success. Thus, spotting one in pristine condition is a rare sight. Though we came across one via a social media platform, and it sits on the alloy wheels from the Hexa. The car in the pictures belongs to Kedar Bendre, who hails from Maharashtra. Apart from the Hexa’s wheels, certain other tweaks have also been made to this Aria.
To start with, it now gets a custom bumper lip at the front and the headlamps feature a dark tint. When looked from the sides, one can see that it now gets a dual-tone paint job with a Sky Grey paint scheme used for the top-half. Also, Hexa’s roof rails have made their way to this Aria. On the rear facet, one can see a spoiler that accentuates the sportiness quotient. Overall, this Aria looks quite fresh as if it has just walked the ramp out of the showroom floor.
Tata Aria was offered with a slew of features to keep the 7 occupants in utmost comfort. The feature list included, adjustable lumbar support, automatic climate control, leather seats, power windows, CD player, Bluetooth connectivity, steering mounted audio controls, 7 sunglass holders, keyless entry, height-adjustable driver seat, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, ABS with EBD, stability control, traction control and more. Back when Aria was launched, these features were quite a luxury to have in a car.
Talking of the powertrain, Aria was offered with a 2.2L DICOR DOHC oil burner. The 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine was capable of putting out a peak power output of 150 PS and max torque of 320 Nm. It came mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 4WD layout was offered as an option.
