The upcoming Tata Gravitas has been recently spied while getting tested in Pune. Once launched, it’ll rival with the likes of MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500.
Tata Motors is currently working on launching its upcoming SUV for India, which has been named as the Gravitas. The SUV is expected to hit our shores by the end of this year or early next year. Tata Gravitas will be an extended version of Harrier and it has already made its Indian debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. It’ll be offered in both 6-seater and 7-seater configurations. The SUV was recently spied undergoing road tests at night time in Pune. It is not the first time that the car has been spotted testing.
The test mule of the SUV was heavily camouflaged. The SUV you see in the spy pictures is said to be the six-seater model of the car, which will feature two captain seats in the second-row. In the carmaker’s stable, the Gravitas will sit above Harrier and will become the company’s flagship model.
The Tata Gravitas will get propelled by the same powertrain which powers the Harrier. But the car will employ a number of styling tweaks and updates to differentiate between both the SUVs. Tata Gravitas will be 63mm longer and 83 mm taller than Harrier. Moreover, it’ll come loaded with features like LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED taillights, integrated roof rails, stepped roof, sunroof, updated set of 18-inch alloy wheels and much more. The tailgate of the car along with rear quarter panel has also been updated to differentiate between both the models.
In terms of dimensions, the upcoming Tata Gravitas will be 4,661 mm long, 1,894 mm wide and will have a wheelbase of 1,786 mm. It’ll derive power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder Kryotec diesel engine that develops 168bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of twisting force. The engine will come paired with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, depending on the option you choose. Once launched, it’ll rub shoulders with the likes ofMG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500. The price of the SUV will be slightly higher than its 5-seater sibling.
