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.

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.
