Tata Gravitas is expected to go on sale from January 26 2021. Check out the newest information about this upcoming Mahindra XUV500 rival.
We have been watching out for the upcoming SUV from Tata for a while now. At first, it was thought that the SUV would have been launched by the end of 2020. As it turns out, this SUV was rescheduled to arrive in early 2021. Tata Motors recently confirmed that the new SUV will enter the market on January 26 2021.
Developed as the extended version of Tata Harrier, Tata Gravitas will be offered in two versions, 6- and 7-seater configurations. It is underpinned by the Omega platform. Compared to the Harrier, Tata Gravitas is longer and taller by 63 mm and 89 mm. In fact, this vehicle measures 4661 mm, 1894 mm and 1886 mm in length, width and height, respectively. However, the wheelbase of the Gravitas is similar to that of the Harrier. This SUV is going to compete against Mahindra XUV500, MG Hector as well as the upcoming Hyundai Creta seven-seater.
Compared to its sibling, the Gravitas adorns various new aesthetic updates including alloy wheels, longer rear overhang and raked roofline. In addition, Tata Motor also offers some new colour options for the Gravitas including Orcus White, Telesto Grey, Atlas Green, Majesto Camo Green, and Calypso Red. Apart from these major updates, the rest will be identical to the current Tata Harrier.
On the inside, there will be three rows on the Gravitas with a foldable middle row which is fitted with one-touch flip and fold function. It will carry forward the similar feature list from the Harrier, including floating touchscreen infotainment system, JBT sound system, 7-inch instrument cluster, voice recognition, cruise control, climate control system and more. Aesthetically, the interior adorns ivory seat upholstery and door pads, as well as grey trims.
About the powertrain options, Tata Gravitas will be powered by the similar 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine powering the Tata Harrier. This motor is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox as well as a 6-speed torque convertor automatic transmission. However, due to the extended body, the Gravitas will be undoubtedly heavier than the Harrier. The added weight will take a toll on the fuel efficiency of the powertrain.
