In 2021, Tata will launch two new seven-seater cars, Tata Hexa and Tata Gravitas. Check out for more details.
Tata Motors is gaining popularity in the domestic market. This year, the homegrown car manufacturer has successfully moved up to the third position in the sales chart of the automotive market, ranking just after the Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai. In the second haft of 2020, Tata Motors has received overwhelming sales results and breaking multiple records of its own.
This year, Tata Motors has launched some new vehicles, including the Tata Harrier automatic, BSVI Tata Nexon and Altroz. These fresh offers have contributed greatly to the growth in sales. In the upcoming year, Tata Motors has scheduled for a few new launches, including the new HBX, Gravitas and the new Hexa. Among these key launches, the Tata Gravitas and Hexa are two seven-seater cars. Here we will dive into the details of these upcoming Tata 7 seater cars in India.
Tata Gravitas was set to launch by the end of this year. However, due to the pandemic outbreak, the launch date of this seven-seater was removed until next year. It is expected that Tata Motors will roll off this car by end of January 2021.
In early 2020, Tata Gravitas was showcased at the Auto Expo as the seven-seater of the Tata Harrier. Even since its appearance at the motor show, the car was spotted multiple times during testing. According to these spy shots, the production-ready Tata Gravitas will feature various updates compared to the version displayed earlier. For example, it gets a refreshed bumper and grille on the front along with new alloy wheels and tweaked taillights, to name a few.
As for the interior feature list, it is expected that Tata Harrier will share the same equipment list with its sibling, the Harrier. Accordingly, Tata Gravitas gets a floating touchscreen infotainment system, JBL audio system, panoramic sunroof, semi-digital instrument cluster, LED taillight along with other safety features like rear parking camera, six airbags, ESP, traction control, electronic parking brake.
Tata Gravitas will be the new flagship model on Tata's line-up
Under the hood, it will borrow the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that can be found on the Harrier. After receiving the BSVI upgrade, the engine is now capable of making 170 PS and 350 Nm. It is paired to 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed torque converter unit. In addition, it is likely that Tata will bring in the all-new 1.5-litre petrol engine to the new Gravitas.
Upon its launch, Tata Gravitas will enter the competition against the likes of MG Hector Plus, Mahindra XUV500 and Hyundai Creta. Expect to see this car to be priced from around Rs 15 lakh.
Tata Hexa is not an all-new vehicle. In fact, the Hexa was launched years ago and was the flagship model on the Tata range for a while before it was discontinued earlier this year.
Tata Hexa will return to the market under the BSVI avatar next year
It is expected that Tata Hexa will make a comeback next year. It has been spotted during testing for several times. As per the spy images, the Tata Hexa was spotted with 4x4 badge. However, as far as we could see, the new model does not come with any exterior updates. The design remains to be heavily influenced by the Impact Design philosophy.
The major updates of the upcoming Tata seven-seater car Hexa will be delivered to the powertrain setting. It will continue to be powered by the 2.2-litre 4-cylinder engine. Earlier, this engine was good enough to put out 154 BHP. It is expected that after receiving the required updates, the power output will be lowered. The number of transmission options will be cut down to two, including a 6-speed MT and 6-speed AMT.
On coming back to the market, Tata Hexa will no longer be the flagship model of Tata’s line-up. Instead, the Tata Gravitas will take Hexa’s place. It will continue to fare against the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and MG Hector Plus. Prices of the Tata Hexa is likely to see a price hike.
With the launch of these upcoming Tata seven-seater cars in India, it is expected that Tata Motors will attract more customers and increase its share in the market.
