Tata Gravitas SUV has made its debut at the Auto Expo. But unlike Geneva, where it was showcased as 7 seater, it was showcased as a 6 seater today.
The Tata Gravitas is one of the most-awaited products in the Indian automotive market. It was first unveiled back at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show as the ‘Buzzard’. At that time, it was showcased as 7-seater version of the Tata Harrier. But today, Gravitas was showcased as a 6 seater, with captain seats in the 2nd row.
Besides the extra number of seats, the Tata Gravitas brings a lot more to the table in terms of both features and internal components. Gone is the rather awkward handbrake lever design for a convenient and space-efficient electronic parking brake button.
The Gravitas will be coming in a 7-seater avatar as well, and we had shared a few spy pics of the same earlier this year. All four wheels of the Gravitas get disc brakes. It is longer than the Harrier, so as to accommodate the 3rd row. Where dimensions are concerned, the Gravitas will stand 4,661mm in length, 1,894mm in width and 1,786mm in height, thus making it around 63mm longer, 72mm wider and 80mm taller than the Harrier.
It will have a bump on its roof to ensure added headroom to third row passengers. It will see similar exterior design element as seen on the Harrier with sleek LED DRLs, projector headlamps, roof rails and roof spoiler and similar looking alloy wheels. It is only at the rear that there are some changes with new tail lamp and bumper designs.
Dashboard will also be similar to that seen in the Harrier, except for new colour scheme. It will receive a floating touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an instrument cluster with digital/analog layout and a drive selector mode ahead of the gear lever. It will also get premium leather seat upholstery, multi-function steering wheel and automatic temperature controls along with a factory fitted panoramic sun roof.
The power plant will be the same 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel mill that has been derived from FCA’s Multijet II unit. Engine and transmission will be same as that of the BS6 Harrier, which was launched earlier today at the Auto Expo. The engine will deliver 170bhp and 350Nm of torque. It will be available mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed AT.
