In the latest spy movie released by Carvale, Tata Gravitas interiors have been leaked. There are many similarities between the Gravitas ready for production and the Gravitas concept presented by Tata Motors at the Auto Expo. It has a large floating touchscreen display unit in the center of the dashboard.
Gravitas is coming to the market as an extended version of the Harrier SUV currently being offered by Tata Motors. In this context, the technology and equipment used in the Harrier and Gravitas models are likely to be almost identical. If not, the Tata Gravitas SUV with a three-row seating configuration is likely to be available in different seating layouts.
The interiors of the Tata Gravitas testing vehicle feature a multifunctional steering wheel with mounted controls, a multi-information display with analog dials on either side, a climate control stock and a rotary dial for drive mode selection.
However, the manual parking brake found on the Harrier seems to have lost Gravitas. The manual parking brake on the Tata Gravitas seems to have been replaced with an electronic parking brake with an auto-hold function. Also, it seems that there is no sunroof in it. Possibly offered in top-end variants.
Changes have been made to the rear design to allow more headroom for third-row passengers. Tata Gravitas SUV is 62mm taller than the standard Tata Harrier SUV. As a result, more space is available in the back row.
There may also be minor changes to the front and rear bumper design. It will learn many other features from the Harrier SUV, including a split-headlamp setup. However, its tail-lamps design seems to have been revised.
Now the engine and transmission options in the Gravitas are also taken from the Harrier SUV. Its BS6 compliant 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, ‘Cryotech’ diesel engine produces a maximum of 168bhp of power and 350Nm of torque.
It is available with optional six-speed automatic or standard six-speed manual gearbox options. It is expected that the engine in the Gravitas will be offered with a slightly higher state tune to accommodate the increased extra weight due to the extension of the SUV.
As the company looks to expand its testing of the Tata Gravitas SUV, it looks like it could be launched in the Indian market very soon. If Gravitas is launched in the market, it will compete in this segment with models like the Mahindra XUV500 and the recently launched MG Hector Plus.
