Very frequently, we have been encountering information related to Tata Motors plans to launch new cars. The automaker has put its Zest and Bolt (both manufactured earlier under the codename ‘Falcon’) on sale, testing its set of sedan and hatchback under the project named ‘Kite’ and is also in plans to launch it’s ‘Pelican’. Now, Tata Motors is in plans to launch the facelifted version of Tata Aria in August 2015, says a Motoroids report.
Codenamed ‘Eagle’, the Aria facelift is all set to get into a new look with its front fascia getting new grille, bumper and headlamps and its rear being redesigned thoroughly by Tata Motor’s design team. The interiors are also expected to sport some changes.
The Aria facelift is expected to continue with the same 2.2 litre VariCor four cylinder common rail diesel engine that has been tweaked to produce peak power of 150PS at 4,000 rpm (that is 10 PS more than the power churned out by the engine in the pre-facelift model) and a peak torque of 320Nm within 1,500 rpm and 3,000 rpm. The engine will be mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. That seems to be the USP of the facelifted Aria.
Few days back, Tata Aria was caught testing and the company had also showcased the car’s production ready concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and the 2014 Indonesia International Motor Show.
The current model of Tata Aria was launched in October, 2010. Collaborating with its subsidiary, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), Tata Motors had designed the Aria that is a blend of SUV, MPV and sedan.
Though Tata Aria facelift was scheduled for 2015 launch, reports on the company’s plans to postpone the launch of facelifted Aria to 2016 had cropped up before.
