Tata Motors, the homegrown UV-specialist, had arguably the most interesting lineup among all the mainstream carmakers in the country. While the new-gen Sierra Concept was the show-stopper at the company’s pavilion at this year’s motor show, there were several other important models on show. Among the upcoming Tata cars that were put on display was the Tata Gravitas, which is essentially a larger version of the Harrier, a fairly successful SUV whose updated model was launched earlier this year.
The Tata Gravitas was earlier scheduled for launch in June-July period of this year. However, the ongoing pandemic has had a pretty bad effect on the auto industry as the demand for new cars has witnessed a drastic fall. Also, several carmakers are said to be facing supply-chain issues, which have led to obstacles with the production of the vehicles. All this has led to a delay in the launch of various new cars, including the Tata Gravitas. It now looks like the new model would go on sale only by the end of this year, which means we’re still a few months away from the introduction of the company’s new flagship.

As we have already said many times, the Tata Gravitas is nothing but a bigger version of the Tata Harrier, much like how the MG Hector Plus is a larger version of the regular MG Hector. Hence, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the Gravitas will share the Omega ARC platform with the 5-seater sibling. This architecture is derived from Jaguar Land Rover’s L550 platform that underpins the Discovery Sport. However, instead of using expensive alloy, Tata has used cast iron for some parts of the architecture in order to keep costs under check. Nevertheless, the Harrier offers great vehicle dynamics.

Also, the Tata Gravitas will share its 2.0-litre MultijetII turbocharged diesel motor with the Harrier. This oil-burner is capable of producing 170 bhp of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit. The latter is a Hyundai-sourced unit that was previously available on the Tucson. Compared to the Harrier, the Gravitas is 63mm longer, 72mm wider and 80mm taller. Speaking of the equipment on offer, the Gravitas will boast a similar level of features as the Harrier. Highlights of the equipment package will include an electric panoramic sunroof, touchscreen infotainment unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, semi-digital instrument console and electric driver’s seat adjustments.
