Detailed Tata Aria Review

What's Good?

1. Headlights (Very aggressive) 2. Vehicle size (Its huge and gives a great road presence) 3. Interiors (They are very impressive and looks updated.. Also the design is very good and unique) 4. Features (Almost everything which should be present in a car is there) 5. Ride quality (It has an the best in class ride quality.. Even better than a 25lac car 6. Space (It has ample space for to seat 5 adults and 2 kids at the back) 7. Storage space (It has great number of storage spaces for small items 8. Chiller (Very useful in long drives 9. Boot space (Even with all the seats up, it has a huge boot) 10. Power (the engine is very powerful and well suited to this car) 11. Refinement (This diesel engine is very well refined and the sound insulation inside the cabin is very impressive)

What can improve?

1. Steering mounted controls (they should be re positioned as they get pressed sometimes while taking sharp turns. 2, Steering wheel should be a little lighter at low speeds (P.S. at high speed it is ideal) 3. Clutch plate should be softer. 4. Space at the last row is little less.. It should me increased so that an average adult can sit there in long drives 5. The tail lights should be replaced.. They look a bit outdated

Overall Comments

Except the tail lamps, everything is good. Due its size, it looks aggressive and has an amazing road presence. Also the built quality is very good. The car doesn't get damaged easily (dents and scratches)

There are some flaws like the ac vents at the front are not placed in the right place and after sometime your hand or leg starts getting too cold. Also you cannot plug in aux or pen drive without opening that section and once you open that section, you cannot open the cup holders. Apart from these flaws, the interiors are amazing. You cannot say that you are sitting in a tata car. They are that good

I think this is the area where aria can leave any competitor behind. It has the best ride quality in its segment and even better than a 25 lac car, So hats off to TATA for this

This is an excellent product from tata which is not very well received by the people mainly due to the pricing and bad marketing strategies. Hope the facelift (due this october) solves this issue.
