New Delhi: Tata Motors has officially launched the facelifted version of Aria in the domestic market at Rs 9.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The new model is available in three trims- Pure LX (Rs 9.95 lakh), Pleasure (Rs 12.00 lakh) and Pride 4X4 (Rs 14.74 lakh).
Tata is also offering a warranty of three years or 10,000 kms whichever comes first on the new Aria. Warranty is also being offered on the new VARICOR engine, a three year warranty or 150,000 kms whichever comes first.
Some of the changes on the outside include new decals, black bezel double barrel headlamps with projector lights and clear lens tail lamps. While the Pure LX and Pleasure variants get standard 16-inch steel rims, the top variant Pride gets 17-inch alloy wheels.
The car is powered by an updated Varicor 2.2litre turbo charged mill developing 150PS (up by 10PS from the outgoing car's power figures) and 320Nm of torque. The company says the uprated engine has been designed for low end torque for better performance in traffic. The fuel efficiency is an ARAI rated 15.05kmpl.
