Tata Motors has showcased the Gravitas at the Auto Expo 2020. It is powered by a BSVI-spec version of the 2.0-litre diesel engine on the Harrier. Check out all details of design, features, specifications of Tata Gravitas here.
Tata’s flagship product in India, the Tata Gravitas has been unveiled to the enthusiasts alongside the BS6 Tata Harrier automatic at the Auto Expo 2020. The 7-seater version of Tata Harrier was first introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as the Tata Buzzard.
The all-new Gravitas looks much like its smaller five-seater SUV sibling but with a few changes made from the C-pillar. At the front, the Gravitas gets a set of bumper-mounted headlamps with projector units and LED DRLs. The 17-inch machined alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof and auto-dimming IRVM are some highlighting features on the vehicle. To accommodate the third row of seats, Tata has extended the rear overhang of the Gravitas but its wheelbase remains the same. The rear end comes with larger quarter glass enhance the comfort for the passengers at the third row. The redesigned LED taillights, upright tailgate, new bumper and wider windscreen are also a few of the changes on the Gravitas over the Harrier. The rest of the 7-seater SUV remains the same as the Harrier, with a faux skid plate under the front bumper and the brand’s Humanity Line design elements.
On the inside, Tata Gravitas gets the same layout as the Harrier with an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system taking up the centre place. A 9-speaker sound system, automatic temperature control, leather seats, and a 6-way powered driver’s seat are also present in the Gravitas. That said, the biggest update inside the cabin of the Gravitas is the third row of seats.
To boost passenger comfort, the car offers dedicated AC vents featuring individual air-blower controls in the last row. Also, Tata Gravitas comes with a 60:40 split function with sliding for the captain seats in the middle row. Just like the Nexon EV, it gets a connected cabin with an embedded SIM, providing remote functionality for the operation of climate control and engine start-stop.
The all-new Tata Gravitas gets the same 2.0-litre diesel engine under its bonnet as the BSVI-compliant Harrier. It makes 170 HP of power and 350 Nm of torque. This powertrain comes coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard and a 6-speed automatic gearbox as an option. Like the five-seater sibling, the Gravitas is expected to be a two-wheel-drive vehicle.
The launch of Tata Gravitas is expected to commence during the first half of the fiscal year 2021. The Gravitas will compete directly against the Mahindra XUV500 and replaces Tata Hexa as the company’s flagship vehicle.
