The carmaker will soon go national with the entry-level version of the Aria.
Thanks to its relatively low price tag and class-leading levels of space and comfort, the entry-level Aria LX has evoked good response in a few states in South India where it was launched during end-2012. So good in fact that Tata Motors has confirmed that the car will soon be made available across all over India.
As a part of its plan to gain dominance in the utility vehicle segment where sales are on the rise, Tata Motors introduced the new cut-price version of the Aria with less features in order to keep the prices down and in line with the competition.
Launched earlier last year at Rs 9.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Bangalore), the Aria LX loses out on alloy wheels and safety features including airbags, ABS and ESP. On the inside, the cabin doesn’t feature cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, height-adjustable driver’s seat and Bluetooth connectivity. However, you still get creature comforts like keyless entry, electric wing mirrors and rear AC vents.
Under the hood, the Aria LX nearly remains the same as the rest of the 2WD models in the range. It retains the 2.2L Dicor engine that puts out 140PS of power and 320Nm torque. However, this cut-price version’s motor uses single mass flywheel to keep costs down.
