The updated Aria is Tata’s first car model to come with an automatic gearbox.
Tata Motors has showcased an updated version of its flagship offering, the Aria crossover at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The premium crossover now boasts of quite a few significant updates including a more powerful engine, automatic gearbox and some cosmetic changes to the design.
In terms of design updates, the new Aria features a rather rich-looking dual-tone paintjob, daytime running headlamps with black inserts, new 19-inch alloy wheels, revised taillights and leather seats inside.
The updates continue under the hood as well, with the 2.2-litre Dicor diesel engine featuring a new turbocharger and a tweaked ECU to bump the power to nearly 160PS from the existing 140PS. The torque rating is also said to have significantly improved. The talking point however, is the addition of the 6-speed automatic gearbox courtesy of GM.
Tata Motors will launch the updated Aria in India first, ahead of its European debut.
