Tata has updated its home-grown MPV, the Aria. It is now trying to entice buyers by offering a host of new features, which include an in-dash navigation system, electric-folding wing mirrors and parking sensors.

On the outside, there are blacked-out headlamps, clear lens tail-lamps and decals on the sides.

The Driver Information System (DIS) gives you real-time updates on tyre pressure, current tank range and so on. The Aria also gets darkness-sensing headlamps and rain-sensing wipers. Apart from that, the MPV also gets features like a steering-mounted cruise control button, along with the controls for the JBL Harman audio system.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine has an uprated output of 148bhp and 320Nm. Tata claims the Aria returns 15.05kpl.

The Aria is available in three variants, with Tata asking for Rs 9.95 lakh for the Pure, Rs 12 lakh for the Pleasure, and Rs 14.74 lakh for the Pride (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
