The large rear view mirrors contain turn indicators, and fold away to aid parking in narrow spaces.

The rear of the vehicle has TATA signature vertically stacked tail-lamps, with dual chromed oval exhaust tips neatly integrated into the rear bumper.

The interior of the TATA Aria is a clean-sheet new design, with a focus on space and flexibility.

Fold flat seating system: The second-row seats and the third-row seats don’t have to be removed from the vehicle to liberate additional luggage space. The seats fold down to form a flat floor, giving various seating combinations.

Driver’s controls: Seated in the 6 way manually adjustable nicely bolstered driver’s seat, the pilot enjoys an up-on-high view of the road, as also the vertically themed center console and two-toned dashboard on the inside.

This sense of involvement is enhanced with all the essential controls neatly arrayed around, with infotainment controls on the steering wheel.


Supportive and comfortable seating: Taking full advantage of the large interior room, there is an extensive amount of space to accommodate 5 7 occupants within a body height range of 95th percentile, ensuring that almost everyone will find a comfortable seating position. Available leather seats add to the luxury experience.

Space and comfort for second-row passengers: The second-row seat has an adjustable seat back recliner, and can be slid back and forth to apportion leg-room with the third row. The second-row can also be split (60:40) folded to accommodate longer loads. Foldable picnic tables are included in the backs of the driver’s and codriver’s seats.

Climate control: Air conditioning is standard equipment on all new Aria models, and for heightened interior climate control, Automatic Temperature Control is available.
