Tata Motors has released the first TVC for the upcoming Tata Gravitas. The vehicle is expected to launch in the coming months and will be the carmaker's flagship product
At the Auto Expo 2020, Tata motors had put a near-production-spec Tata Gravitas on display. While the vehicle seems to be a few months away from its launch, its manufacturer has started to air a commercial for the upcoming SUV.

The Gravitas is essentially the 7-seater version of the Harrier. In fact, the two cars are almost identical mechanically and aesthetically, although a keen eye would notice several differences. Firstly, the Gravitas is 62 mm longer and 80 mm taller than the Harrier, at 4,660 mm and 1,786 mm, respectively. That said, the width and the wheelbase are identical, at 1,894 mm and 2,741 mm. The larger dimensions will help the seven-seater SUV offer more interior room for passengers, along with, of course, a three-row seating layout.
There are some subtle differences in design as well. The taillamp design on the Gravitas is sharper, and the tailgate has big-bold lettering announcing its name to onlookers. The Harrier has a smoother and mellower design. You also get a roof rail with a unique design, which merges into the D-pillar. The interior design remains the same between the two though, apart from the obvious inclusion of a third row of bench in the Gravitas.

The engine is the same on the two, a BS6-compliant 2.0-litre inline-4 turbocharged (Kryotec) diesel engine. It can produce a maximum power of 170 PS, and peak torque is listed at 350 Nm. The transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed torque-converter automatic sourced from Hyundai.
The launch of the Tata Gravitas could result into the discontinuation of the Hexa from the company's portfolio. While the prices will only be announced upon launch, we expect the SUV to be priced in the range of Rs. 14.5 lakh to Rs. 20 lakh (ex-showroom). Upon launch, the Gravitas will compete with rivals like Mahindra XUV500 and MG Hector Plus.
