The Tata Gravitas has been spotted testing again wearing camouflage and we managed to get a glimpse of it. Gravitas, which debuted at the 2019 Geneva International Motor show and later at 2020 Indian Auto Expo is all set for the global launch. We can expect the Gravitas launch in the coming months most probably in August 2020, according to reports.
Gravitas being the 7 seater version of Harrier is powered by the Fiat-sourced BS6-compliant 2.0 Litre diesel engine producing 170PS power and 350Nm of peak torque, found in the updated Harrier. Surprisingly, the same unit has been used in a higher state of tunes like Jeep Compass and upcoming MG Hector Plus. It is paired to 6-speed manual gearbox in the base model and 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox in top-spec variants.
Even with the camouflage on, evident features like new grille design, black B-pillar and machine cut alloy wheels were visible. The major difference between Gravitas and Harrier can be noted from the sides. The interior is quite similar to Harrier, boasting a wide 8.8-inch infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 6-way powered seats, automatic climate control, and 9 speaker sound systems. It also gets projector headlamps with LED DRLs.
The Gravitas gets longer rear overhang and a roof bulge with larger side windows to accommodate the third row of seats than the 5 seater Harrier. The third row can be accessed through the foldable middle row. Other striking changes include sportier rear bumper, faux skid plate positioned lower on the front bumper, split headlamp unit and black strip between the tail lamps as well. It also features the same machine-cut 17-inch alloy wheels, the same design as in prototype showcased in the Auto expo.
Gravitas is expected to be offered in five attractive colors like Telesto grey, Orcus white, calypso red/black, Orcus white/black and atlas black just like the Harrier and expected to be priced from Rs. 15 lakh to Rs. 19 lakh (Ex-Showroom Delhi), a little premium than the Harrier. If things work in favor of Gravitas, we can expect the launch before 2020 Diwali. In the Indian market, it will compete with the likes of upcoming MG Hector Plus, next-gen Mahindra XUV500, and 7-seater Hyundai Creta.
