The Tata Gravitas SUV is expected to be the next model that will be launched by the brand in India. The company is expected to launch the upcoming SUV during the festive season this year.
Like most product launches in the country, the upcoming SUV's launch has been delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Tata Motors had showcased the Gravitas SUV at the 2020 Auto Expo ahead of its India launch. The company revealed some of the details and features that can be expected from the upcoming SUV.
In addition to the unveiling at the Expo, the upcoming SUV was showcased in an advert before the launch as well. The Tata Gravitas is a seven-seater SUV that is based on the Harrier SUV from the brand's line-up. Both share most of the design, features, powertrain and other components between them.
Talking about the design of the Gravitas, at the front it borrows most of its features from the Harrier SUV including the split-headlamp setup. However, the rear of the SUV has been tweaked a little with the absence of swooping roof-line as seen on the Harrier. The roofline has been altered to accommodate more headroom for the third-row passengers. Additionally, the SUV is 62mm longer than the Harrier to provide rear-legroom as well.
Interiors of the Gravitas is expected to be borrowed from the Harrier with small changes such as the third-row climate control vents, once touch folding middle row seats for easy ingress and egress of third-row passengers. The Gravitas is expected to be offered in two seating configurations: a six-seater version with captain seats in the middle-row, and a regular seven-seater variant with a standard bench seat in the second-row.
The Tata Gravitas SUV is expected to use the same 2.0-litre diesel engine that currently powers the Harrier SUV. It produces 168bhp and 350Nm, and comes mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, with an optional six-speed automatic.
Once launched, the Gravitas will rival the Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Jeep Compass seven-seater SUV in the Indian market. Like most of the Tata products, we expect the company to price the upcoming Gravitas aggressively when launched in the country.
Thoughts About The Tata Gravitas Expected Arriving During Festive Season In India
Tata Motors has resumed its operations at its manufacturing plants and customer touchpoints after the nation-wide lockdown was eased. The demand for three-row SUV in the Indian market has increased substantially in recent years. As a result, Tata is keen on launching the Gravitas as soon as possible in the country that could bring in more volumes for the brand.
