It is no secret that Tata wants a large share of the Indian market and is working towards a plan to do just that. One of the most interesting new products coming from the Tata stable will be the Mini Aria compact SUV. Mahindra has launched the successful Quanto and many others like Ford, VW are also planning to launch compact SUV's. Now with such action and buyer interest, Tata is working towards launching its own compact SUV. The basics are clear, Tata wants to keep it as competitively priced as possible and it obviously is not going to be as advanced as the Aria. For cost purposes the platform used in the Mini Aria will not be the Aria platform but will be the old Safari platform.

Of course it will also be under 4 metres and the other usual compact SUV design details will include the spare wheel at the back like the Quanto and EcoSport. The styling is going to be heavily Aria based, we love its handsome styling so that is indeed good news. Space is going to impressive as in any Tata car. The big question though is the engine, Tata will not be using the current Aria engine for excise benefits so instead most probably the Multijet motor will be used. For all the things said, the most juicy bit is the price, expect a price-tag similar or even lower to the Quanto. In other news a compact Sumo Gold is also in the pipeline which will be under four metres and will be very spacious. So all in all the future holds the promise of some interesting Tata offerings!
