2021 Tata Gravitas 7-seater SUV expected to be launched early 2021
Tata Motors has revealed to a news outlet that the Tata Gravitas's launch will now happen in the last quarter of the 2020-21 financial year. The Gravitas is the Harrier's seven-seat iteration and was originally planned as a festive season launch before the COVID19 pandemic struck. The HBX crossover will follow the Gravitas, although a specific timeline has not been stated.
The Gravitas is around 62mm longer than the Harrier, and now incorporated a stepped roof and a reworked rear section to accommodate the third row of seats. The section aft of the B-pillar is longer and boxier, with lightly reworked tail lamps and a bump on the roof, to allow for more headspace in the third row. The width and wheelbase should remain unchanged.
The new SUV is also expected to come with the same 2.0-litre FCA-sourced Multijet diesel engine, which Tata calls Kryotec. In this case, we think the more powerful 172PS and 350Nm version will be offered, in its BSVI compliant guise. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual and a six-speed automatic gearbox in the Harrier and those are expected to be seen in the Gravitas too. The Gravitas should come with a more extensive list of features including an electronic parking brake, and a lighter upholstery shade. The new SUV is expected to also come in a six-seater version with second-row captain seats.
The Tata Gravitas is expected to be priced at a premium of Rs 1 to 1.5 lakh over an equivalent Harrier
