Tata Motors is all set to launch the much-awaited 6-Seater Gravitas SUV in the country. Unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo, the Tata Gravitas will be the brand’s new flagship SUV. Ahead of the launch, Tata Motors has released a new TVC revealing all the details. Based on the Harrier SUV, the Gravitas will directly rival the upcoming MG Hector Plus and the Mahindra XUV500.
The Tata Gravitas measures 4,661mm in length and 1,786mm in height and has a width of 1,894mm. The SUV is 63mm longer and 80mm taller than the Harrier, though the wheelbase remains the same at 2741mm. In terms of styling, the Gravitas looks largely similar to that of the 5-seater version. However, it gets subtle changes in the form of bigger alloys, revised grille, and a stepped roof along with a longer rear overhang.

For easy access to the third row, the second row of seats has a one-touch flip-and-flop mechanism. The SUV also gets auto hold and electronic handbrake. Adding to it, the SUV has auto-dimming IRVMs. It features the same free-floating touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also See – Tata Gravitas Vs Mahindra XUV500
Under the hood is a 2.0-litre turbocharged Kryotec diesel engine that also powers the Tata Harrier. This engine is capable of producing 170bhp of maximum power and 350Nm of torque. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual and a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque convertor automatic.
Tata Motors will only introduce the diesel version of the Gravitas SUV. However, the company is also working on an all-new petrol engine to power the Harrier and the Gravitas. It is likely to get an in-house developed 1.6L direct injection gasoline motor, which could produce around 140-150bhp of power and torque around 250-300Nm.
