The styling of the Gravitas is largely similar to that of the 5-seater Harrier SUV; however, there are subtle changes to keep things fresh in the market. It comes with bigger alloy wheels, revised grille, and a stepped roof along with a longer rear overhang. To access the third row, the second row of seats in the 6-seater version has a one-touch flip-and-flop mechanism. The SUV also gets auto hold and electronic handbrake, and auto-dimming IRVMs. It features the same free-floating touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
