Body over Frame construction with Hydroformed frame members
Aria is one of the few crossovers in the world with a body over frame construction. This construction provides the car the rigidity and robustness required for Indian roads and multi terrain operation. Moreover, Aria's chassis frame members are made through a new generation technique called hydroforming which makes the frame lighter, stronger and more rigid.
ABS with EBD
During panic braking or while braking on slippery surfaces with normal brakes, the vehicle goes into a skid and the steering becomes unresponsive, thus resulting in an accident. The Aria is equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking System along with Electronic Brake Force Distribution. The ABS system prevents the brakes from locking. This ensures that the tyres retain traction and steering remains responsive, thus preventing accidents. ABS is effective even on slippery surfaces such as wet roads or ice.
The Electronic Brake force distribution distributes the brake force as per the dynamic requirement sensed for each wheel while braking. This increases braking efficiency and shortens the braking distance.
One of the most important features in the Aria is the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Traction Control System. ESP is a computerized system that improves stability of a vehicle and prevents skidding / toppling in situations of loss of steering control. ESP intervenes only when it detects that the vehicle is not going in the direction where the driver is steering it. This may happen when the vehicle is skidding during emergency evasive swerves, under-steer or over-steer during poorly judged turns or on slippery roads. ESP estimates the direction of the skid and then applies brakes to individual wheels asymmetrically to prevent the skid and restore steering control.
Traction control system functions in a similar manner and maintains stability in situations of sudden acceleration.
All Disc Brakes
The Aria is equipped with disc brakes on all four wheels for efficient and powerful braking. The dual pot calliper braking system ensures high braking force and shorter braking distance.
Air bags - Driver and passenger Air bags, Side Airbags, Curtain Airbags
Aria is the first Indian car to be armed with - 6 full surround airbags. The Driver and Passenger Air Bags get self-inflated within milliseconds depending on the severity of the frontal collision. The Side Air Bag and Curtain Air Bags assure complete protection on all seats in case of sideways collision or rollover. By forming a safety cushion for all passengers, these Air Bags reduce the likelihood of injuries in a collision.
Seat Belt with pre-tensioner
The front seat belts are equipped with a pre-tensioner which restricts forward movement in the event of a frontal impact.
Keyless Entry with immobilizer with perimetric Alarm System
In case of theft or bonnet/ door opening attempt, the in-built immobilizer with Perimetric Alarm System not only alerts but also cuts the fuel supply to the engine and will only start with the original key.
Rigid body construction & Crashworthiness
The rigid frame and robust construction is combined with an equally strong body shell. The shell also has a reinforced passenger cabin and several crumple zones built in which serve to absorb the energy of impact in the event of a collision. The in built design elements also ensure pedestrian safety
The perfectly balanced suspension in Aria not only assures you a comfortable ride but also gives you efficient control and stability on or off the road.
Aria is equipped with an independent double wish bone suspension in the front and 5-link suspension at the back. The suspension has been designed and set-up to provide an optimal balance between a comfortable on-road ride and surefooted off-road handling. Not only does it absorb shocks from the most uneven roads, but it also reduces roll to a minimum and helps to inspire confidence on the sharpest of corners.
Aria is equipped with a selectable 4x4 which has a built in Adapterra torque on demand feature. Engineered for an instant response, this is the latest technology in 4X4 systems. It senses and distributes torque, in varying proportion to the wheels, in accordance with the terrain. Thus even if two wheels are on a slippery surface, the Adapterra reduces torque to these wheels, thereby preventing any wheel spin. The Adapterra also helps to maintain stability on winding roads.
Rack and Pinion Steering
The Rack & Pinion Steering in Aria is extremely precise and effortless to operate. This power steering delivers excellent high-speed stability and enhanced control thereby making it easy for you to manoeuvre on narrow winding roads.
The 2.2 DICOR engine has Variable Turbine Technology, 16 valves & Twin Overhead Camshaft with 32 bit ECU, generating 140 PS Power & 320 Nm Torque.
Then there's also the Dual Mass Flywheel that makes vibrations a thing of the past, maintaining a peaceful calm inside the cabin. A boon on Indian roads, we think.

Torque On Demand - Transfer Case
Torque On Demand - Transfer Case
"The Torque On Demand – All Wheel Drive" system continuously takes the following inputs and the
ECU of TOD decides the Torque distribution:
1. Front Speed
2. Rear Speed
3. Throttle Position
4. ABS Signal
5. Mode Switch 4x2.
The torque is reduced where it’s slipping or wasted, and provides the extra torque to the other side. The TOD also prevents your car from skidding and while you're
on normal roads, it reduces torque to the slipping wheel and ensures stability. Unlike traditional 4x4s that need the driver's
intervention, the TOD does it all for you.
The Aria is equipped with extremely efficient dual air conditioning with automatic climate control system. This enables you to set the preferred temperature which the system maintains inside the cabin. A large number of well positioned vents on the dashboard pillars provide the required cooling for all passengers.
Low Floor Construction
The off roader in the Aria exists in perfect harmony with its comfortable car avatar. Aria's unique design combines low floor construction along with enough ground clearance. This makes entry and exit extremely easy, resulting in a car you can walk into not climb up or get down in.
The Aria is equipped with a sophisticated infotainment system. It includes a state-of-the-art 2 DIN integrated music system with 6 speakers, which plays CD and MP3. It also features a speed sensing volume controlling device, a USB port for external storage and an auxiliary input jack for portable music players such as IPods. The system also has an in-built Bluetooth connect which allows you to pair up to 5 mobile phones. That is not all; you can operate the music system as well as the phones without taking your hand off the steering thanks to the remote switches provided on the Steering wheel.
The Aria's infotainment system is named that way because, along with entertainment it also provides the driver with a range of useful information such as inside/outside temperatures, distance the car can travel on available fuel, instant and average fuel consumption, and other alerts related to performance and efficient control of your Aria.
To top it all the system is absolutely secure as it is equipped with an Anti-theft protection feature.
