Tata Motors is betting big on its products. Also, the carmaker announced that its vehicles would be updated at regular intervals to keep the lineup fresh and relevant to the market. While the carmaker has recently updated the features list of the Altroz, the Harrier is expected to get a bigger update in the form of an petrol engine option. Also, the indigenous carmaker will be launching the 6- and 7-seater version of the Harrier in the Indian market. Named Gravitas, this upcoming model made its India debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. Also, the test mules of these SUVs have been recently spotted while they were parked together.
In the pictures, the test mules are parked alongside each other. Thus, it can also be seen that the Gravitas outperforms the Harrier in terms of overall road presence. It boats of increase heft and size in comparison to the Harrier. Talking of the numbers, the Gravitas will measure 4,664 mm in length, 1,894 mm width, and 1,786 mm in height. These dimensions have an increment of 63 mm, 72 mm, and 80 mm in comparison to the length, width, and height of Harrier, respectively. The wheelbase of both the SUVs will, however, remain identical at 2,741 mm.
Talking of the Harrier petrol, it will most likely be a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged motor. It is expected to put out a peak power output of around 170 PS and a max torque in the range of 250-270 Nm. The transmission options with the petrol engine are expected to be limited to a 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT only, as is the case with the diesel variants. With the introduction of petrol-powered Harrier, Tata Motors is eyeing the customers who are looking to buy a petrol-only SUV. Furthermore, with the petrol engine in place, Harrier will get a lower starting price.
The Tata Harrier petrol is expected to hit the showroom floors by the end of this year. The Gravitas, on the other hand, will most likely be making its way to the Indian market by festive season this year. Thus, both of these cars are not far away from their respective launch timelines, and it would be an interesting watch to see them competing against their rivals. If prices are to be considered, the Harrier Petrol will start at a speculated price of Rs. 12 lakh, whereas the Gravitas will carry a starting price of Rs. 15 lakh.
