Well,again I am back with same words as said before:-
..yeah I remember,I have TDed this sort of car some days back and have a net experience of about 100 kms with Aria,i am an Innova owner and simply failed the Aria in the handling department.but then no SUV/MUV has good handling too.
First of all,@Traveller:
Dear,congo for your acquisition this is the best cruiser available in the country in the segment,only problem is that its quite over-priced(even more than Innova)and overall product quality is still quite below the expected levels at the price(yeah,the main problem is price,they bring it down by a lac or two and this quality is acceptable).a honda city also feels to have better interior quality than an Aria!!
First of all:-
Raj,dear you know that I am never against you but for being unbiased,I have to be true and truth directs against you,why?Because:-
Now a days i am quite busy with some word and business and as a result come across a lot of people,same way two days back I came across a highway contractor from Nashik and the guy was owning an Aria Pride 4X4(no doubt he has a lot of cash and being a contractor he knows that every car has only one model-the TOP MODEL)so when talking to him i simply asked him about what he feels about the Aria and what problems have came across by him till date?So he called up his driver and both of them told me that those people have already traveled by road from Nasik to Delhi and the Aria they were having had already covered more than 50k kms in just one year still the car was trouble free and running well.this man was also ready to bet on his car!!Only one problem he had was that the GPS was simply not working even after the system was replaced once. Ovarall:-
Three Aria owners on forum and more than five outside have been met by me and all were happy with their Arias...NOW WHERE ARE THOSE LYING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE OWNERS?
I know that problems may occur,but it seems like the bashing of Aria is going on at its best.
I am the person who hates both Tata and M&M equally,I drive an Innova and will switch to Yeti or Pajero(None else at any cost) when the time comes,but being true the XUV and the Aria are only two vehicles by those manufacturers which really impressed me.
Since this is the Aria thread so i'll highlight my observations with aria only:- 1):RIDE:
Simply outstanding ride,only needs to be quite better at low speeds,while as the speed builds up you get a great ride just like a pillow of air.what are small speed breakers?If my Aria is going above 40 kph then I am not even going to feel if anything was there on the road. 2):STABILITY:
No doubt,the most stable MUV at the price,its simply a comfy cruiser.There is quite too much body roll,but then this is a SUV/MUV and has a lot of weight and height too 3):HANDLING:
Typical Tata handling,neither confident nor accurate.But it is an MUV so handling can't be nice too.Yeah its a fact that handling can be better. 4):PERFORMANCE:
Pulls like a pro but that turbo needs to come to life first,the turbo has gone off and this engine is a let down.in other words,there is a lot of turbo lag,but as soon as the turbo comes to life,this engine pulls like a locomotive.Only a Toyota 3.0 D-4D or Ford 3.0 TCDi can beat this 2.2 unit. 5):COMFORT:
Simply great,no doubt its the most comfy MUV in the segment,although if you drive yourself then you have to look at Innova or XUV as the driving simply lets it down in front of them.But if you are chauffeur driven and generally spends your time on middle row,then Aria is simply unbeatable.\
In other words:
Self driven:XUV(for performance)and Innova(For handling)
Chauffeur driven:Aria and Innova.
There are many more points to mention,but I am quite out of time also it can again go into a comparo...ANY QUESTIONS OR DOUBTS?
