First Published 12, Nov 2020, 7:10 PM
The Gravitas is likely to be priced between Rs 18 lakh to Rs 23 lakh (ex-showroom)
Tata Motors India has officially announced that the seven-seater Gravitas, which was to be launched months after its unveil at the Auto Expo 2020 but was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, will now be launched in the first quarter of the next year. Tata Gravitas will be powered by the same engine that propels the Harrier -- a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that makes 168 bhp and 350 Nm of peak torque. This engine comes paired to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard but buyers can also opt for the six-speed automatic gearbox. There is also a small possibility that Gravitas could come equipped with a petrol engine that has been in the making for a while.
The six/seven-seater is based on the Harrier’s OMEGA platform but is likely to grow in dimension by 63mm in length and 80mm in height. The upcoming SUV's list of features provisions is expected to include a dual-tone dashboard, seven-inch instrument panel, steering-mounted audio controls, push button engine start, automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, cruise control etc. The Gravitas is also likely to get electric sunroof but adding a panoramic unit could be difficult with the stepped-up roof. The main highlights of the car include an electronic parking brake with hold function, ivory-colored upholstery for the seats and the door pads. The Gravitas is likely to be priced between Rs 18 lakh to Rs 23 lakh (ex-showroom)
Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Business Unit President Shailesh Chandra was quoted as saying in a media report, "Going forward two additional models are going to come- Gravitas and Hornbill (codenames). Gravitas will be a seven-seater SUV while Hornbill will be a sub compact SUV so we will have four SUVs in our portfolio which would be the widest portfolio. It would help strengthen our market position and sales in the coming years. The company plans to launch the Gravitas during the last quarter of this fiscal. It is yet to fix a date for the Hornbill introduction."
