Thanks to Auto Adrenaline, for sharing the spied images of the Tata Aria 4×2 Pride in Facebook page. In the image note the omission of the 4×4 badge, but does not mention 4×2aswell, so how do we conclude it is indeed the Aria 4×2 that we are seeing in the picture above. Simple just look at the Pleasure badge on the boot, the 4-wheel drive versions has 4X4 Adapterra written above the front wheel arch. The Aria Pleasure 4×2 will get all the features of the 4×4 variant minus the all-wheel drive configuration.
Tata Motors is offering the 2-wheel drive layout only in the base Pleasure variant and will not dilute the Aria from its key positioning. Tata Motors has positioned the Aria as the first crossover in India and thus wants to market the car aggressively against the Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Captiva. The base Aria (Pleasure) also features airbags, ABS, EBD, dual AC, projector headlights, audio controls on steering wheels, etc. The two higher variants are Prestige and Pride and they are feature-packed with climate control, rain sensing wipers, chilled glovebox and 17 inch wheels.
The Aria 4×2 version is slated for launch next week, which would only be available in Pleasure variant. Sources say that that price difference between the 4×2 and 4×4 variant is unknown but we estimate atleast Rs. 1 lakh separating both the versions.
