Tata Aria facelift caught on test in India – Launch this month?
2013 Tata Aria facelift was caught on test and is expected to make its way into Indian auto industry later this month. Tata Motors is losing market share in the country but have plans in place to regain their position in the top three by 2014. Redesigning of exisiting vehicles is on the cards, following a steady decline in sales.
2013 Tata Aria was seen at Geneva Motor Show earlier. It possessed the same 2.2 liter Dicor diesel engine, but tuned to offer better output than the existing engine. It offers 155 PS power, higher power than the 140 PS offered on the current Tata Aria in markets. Torque is also enhanced from a present 320 Nm to 400 Nm while a 6 speed automatic gearbox is offered in addition to the manual transmission.
