The Tata Gravitas SUV, that recently made its India debut at the ongoing Auto Expo, will see a release in the first half this year. This means, the 6/7-seater SUV will see a release in between April – September, 2020. The Gravitas is essentially the bigger version of the Harrier with minor design tweaks and of-course the extra row of seats. Similar to the Harrier, the 6/7-seater Gravitas sits on the OMEGARC platform and carries the brand’s new Impact Design 2.0 philosophy.
Upfront, the Tata Gravitas features the same humanity line grille with large projector headlamps with slim LED DRLs and a faux skid plate on the bumper. The tailgate has more upright stance than the Harrier 5-seater. In fact, the taillight design looks different. There is cladding on the side profile, squared wheel arches and roof rails giving it sportier appeal.
Other key elements include D-pillar with a black extension, a larger rear windscreen, a larger quarter glass, a larger roof mounted spoiler and a beefier rear bumper. Similar to its concept (Buzzard), the Tata Gravitas measures 4661mm in length, 1894mm in width, and 1786mm in height. Compared to its 5-seater sibling, the Gravitas is 63mm longer and 80mm taller. The wheelbase, however, remains unchanged (2741mm). Read: Tata Sierra SUV Concept Unveiled – Key Features
Interior of the Gravitas looks exactly similar to the Harrier. Though, it gets the third row of seats to accommodate more passengers. The 6/7-seater SUV also comes with a floating display in piano black housing and chrome bezel, dual-tone interior theme, a 3 spoke steering wheel and more fitments.
With respect to engine, the Tata Gravitas will use the same Fiat-sourced 2.0L, 4-cylinder diesel engine that powers the new Harrier. It will return a claimed power of 170bhp and 350 Nm peak torque. Transmission duties will be performed by a 6-speed manual (standard) and a 6-speed automatic gearbox (optional).
