Upcoming Tata Gravitas SUV spied testing before launch

Tata Motors had a great start this year. They had launched couple of new models like their first premium hatchback Altroz and the Nexon EV. They also launched facelifted version of Nexon, Tiago and Tigor too. This year at the Auto Expo, Tata Motors had showcased all models including the upcoming ones. One of the model that grabbed attention was the Gravitas SUV. It is basically the 6-seater version of the Harrier that will be launched in the market later this year. Recently, the Gravitas SUV was spotted testing under heavy camouflage in Pune.

The spy pics have been uploaded by Indian Auto on their website. The Gravitas as per the images looks like it is being parked and currently no tests are being conducted due to the current Corona virus pandemic situation in the country. We have already seen the Gravitas when it was unveiled at the Auto Expo earlier this year.

Design-wise it is similar to the Harrier from the front. It gets the same dual function LED DRLs, and projector type headlmaps. The only differentiating factor in Gravitas is the chrome inserts on the grille that are added to make it look more premium. From the side It gets a bigger 18 inch wheels that get a design similar to the one seen in BS6 version of the Harrier.

The major difference in terms of design is at the rear. The tail gate gets a different design similarly, the LED tail lights and the bumper is also redesigned. On the inside it will offer all the features that are seen on the Harrier. However it is unlikely to get a sunroof at the time of launch. The major difference on the inside is going to be the third row of seats which makes it different from the Harrier.

Just like Harrier, the Gravitas will also use the same 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine which is now BS6 compliant. The engine generates a maximum of 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque. It will come with a 6-speed manual along with a 6-speed automatic gearbox as an option. Just like any other Tata car, Gravitas is also expected to be priced competitively and will compete with cars like the Mahindra XUV500 and upcoming MG Hector Plus in the segment. The Gravitas will be the most expensive SUV in Tata Motors’ line-up, and will be the new flagship vehicle from the Indian automaker.
