Tata Gravitas to Cost 1 Lakh More Than Harrier - Latest News
Tata Gravitas 7-Seater SUV & Harrier Difference - Check Price, Features and Latest Updates
After the updated Harrier, Tata Motors was set to launch the Gravitas SUV toward the end of this year but that has been pushed to around April 2021 with Covid-19 hampering the launch plans however finally the Gravitas will arrive towards the starting of next year. First shown at the 2020 Auto Expo, the Gravitas is based on the Harrier but is aimed as a more practical and luxurious offering with three-row seating along with the extended design for the rear-styling. Do note that it was also shown at the Geneva Motor Show as the Buzzard concept from which the name Gravitas has been given as the final production name.
It would also be the first Tata Motors launch for 2021 while others such as the HBX would follow along with the Altroz DCT plus other crucial launches which Tata have kept in the pipeline for us. The Gravitas is not just a three-row version of the Harrier as extensive changes have been done to the bodywork. The biggest difference is that it is longer than the Harrier by 63mm and that extra length helps accommodate the additional seating arrangement. The side and rear styling showcase the updated quarter-glass and longer rear-overhang. It will also get a new color option along with re-designed alloy wheels.
Inside, the Gravitas will have a different color scheme than the Harrier to signify its more luxurious intentions. It will also get some feature upgrades. The main highlight will be the third-row, which has separate AC controls along with adjustable headrests. Access to the third-row is via a one-touch mechanism and the space available is quite decent. Headroom and legroom is quite good and for short journeys, there would not be any problem as such.
Just like the Harrier, the Gravitas will be powered by the 2.0-liter Kryotec diesel engine which develops 170hp/350Nm. A 6-speed manual gearbox will be available as standard while a torque-converter automatic unit will be optional. We expect the Gravitas to be front-wheel-drive only though some off-road modes would be offered. It will also get some suspension tweaks to make the ride more comfortable.
Tata Motors is likely to charge a premium of around Rs. 1 lakh for the Gravitas over the Harrier, which starts at Rs. 13.84 lakh. The extra one lakh will make the Gravitas a more appealing car for those who need a three row SUV and not settle for an MPV.
We expect the Gravitas to be available in fewer trims while new colors and feature upgrades would make it the company's flagship SUV. The Harrier would be still available with more variants but the Gravitas would be offered in such a way so as to keep a distance between the two cars
When launched, the Gravitas will take on rivals like MG Hector Plus and Toyota Innova Crysta while the new Innova just got a facelift and the Hector will also get one next year which means the Plus will also get.
