04 Aug 2020: Ahead of launch, 2020 Tata Gravitas SUV spotted testing

Tata Motors is planning to launch its Gravitas SUV in India sometime around the festive season. In the latest development, a heavily camouflaged test mule of the vehicle has been spotted plying on the roads.

As per the spy images, the car will feature a cascading grille, LED tail lamps, squared wheel arches, and a beefy rear bumper.

Here's our roundup.

Exteriors: Tata Gravitas: At a glance

The Gravitas will be based on the company's OMEGA Arc platform and borrow styling cues from its five-seater sibling, the Harrier.

The SUV will sport a cascading grille with a honeycomb mesh pattern, a roof-mounted spoiler, a muscular rear bumper, and a massive rear windscreen.

It will also have roof rails, square-shaped wheel arches, LED taillights, and a wheelbase of 2,741mm.

Fact: Power and performance

Just like the Harrier, the Gravitas will draw power from a Fiat-sourced BS6-compliant 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder diesel mill that generates 168hp of power and 350Nm of peak torque. The motor will come mated to a 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic torque converter gearbox.

Interiors: A peek inside the cabin

Inside, the Tata Gravitas will offer a spacious seven-seater cabin with dual-tone upholstery, automatic climate control, and a three-spoke steering wheel.

It will house a semi-digital instrument cluster and a piano black-colored floating touchscreen infotainment console with support for connectivity options.

The SUV will also have all the standard safety features like multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and parking sensors.

Fact: What about the pricing?

Tata Gravitas will be launched in India during the festive season this year. It should carry a premium of Rs. 1 lakh over the Harrier, which falls under Rs. 13.69-20.25 lakh price-bracket. Once launched, it will take on the MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500.
