Tata Aria, the all-new seven-seater crossover between a SUV and an MPV by Tata Motors is going to be launched in the next few weeks. The car may also be on rolls for exports. However, as company officials announced lately, there are no such plans in the near future.

Tata Aria will be equipped with a 2.2-litre direct injection common rail diesel engine that is currently used in the Tata Safari and Fiat Grande Punto. The exact price has not been finalized yet. However, the crossover is expected to come with a tag of around Rs 12 Lakh-Rs 14.5 Lakh. The Tata Aria is going to be one of the most sophisticated vehicles from Tata.

On a recent occasion, the top officials from Tata motors cleared the air that the car would soon be launched. It will most likely launch next month or in June. As for exports, it was mentioned that the car would be made available outside the country based on the needs and relevance calculated over time.

In the next ten years the Tata Aria is expected to roll in the markets of the U.S., the UK and Europe. In India, the car will be launched with a diesel engine. Tata motors would be catering to a wide range of power-train options for the European markets.

Tata Aria would be a tough competition to all the contemporaries. The new car is going to offer an array of features present in other autos like the Ford Endeavor, Chevrolet Captiva and Toyota Fortuner. The Aria, however, is going to come with a lower price tag. Tata motors will offer four-wheel and two-wheel drive options in all its variants.
