Tata Motors has confirmed the name of their upcoming 7-seater Harrier-based SUV as, Gravitas. The new Tata Gravitas SUV will be the latest flagship model in the brand's product portfolio in India.
Along with the name, Tata Motors also confirmed that the Gravitas will launch in India sometime in February 2020 (most-likely at the Auto Expo). It will be positioned above the Tata Hexa and is expected to be priced at a slight premium as well.
The Tata Gravitas will be the second model from the brand to carry the new OMEGA architecture, Harrier being the first. The OMEGA architecture is based on the D8 platform of Land Rover.
It will also carry forward the new ‘Impact 2.0' design language, first seen on the Harrier. This new design language will also be carried on the upcoming Tata Altroz, along with the next-generation Nexon, Tiago and Tigor models.
Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors stated:
"We are elated to reveal the name of our latest SUV offering - the Tata Gravitas. With this, we are excited to offer to our customers, yet another state-of-the-art product."
"The Gravitas will up the ante in terms of luxury and performance and we are excited to launch this product to customers in February 2020. We are confident that the Gravitas will inspire and lead as a product among customers and industry alike."
The front fascia of the Tata Gravitas will be almost identical to the Harrier SUV, although the rear will feature a more upright and boxy styling. The Tata Gravitas SUV is 62mm longer than the Harrier, this is to accommodate the third-row of seats.
Other changes also include a re-designed set of LED taillights, 18-inch alloy wheels and a panoramic sunroof. The new seven-seater Tata Gravitas will also come with a more powerful BS-VI compliant engine compared to the Harrier.
This engine comes in the form of the same 2.0-litre ‘Kryotec' diesel unit. The engine on the Gravitas produces a higher power output of 173bhp, along with 350Nm of torque. It will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.
Tata might also introduce the Gravitas with a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque-converter automatic transmission as well, which will be offered as optional on the higher-spec variants.
Thoughts On The Tata Gravitas Seven-Seater SUV
The Tata Gravitas is essentially a 7-seater Harrier SUV. It comes with a number of changes, most notable being the third-row of seats and increased length.
Once launched in India, the Tata Gravitas will rival the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Kodiaq and the Mahindra Alturas G4; while being priced in the same range as well.
