Tata Motors has been tasting major success with the Harrier SUV. It’s a premium vehicle and has now put Tata in the big league once again. However, the Harrier is just the first part and Tata will complete the line up with the Gravitas. It’s a seven-seat version of the Harrier and was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in March of this year.
The Tata Gravitas been built on the Land Rover platform and will be slotted in above the Harrier in terms of pricing. The car that was showcased at Geneva has the same design, interior layout, feature list but with two additional seats in the third row.
The concept car shows typical Tata lines and the signature smiley face which finds a sweet spot between the Nexon’s appeal and the Hexa’s aggression. The design is muscular and with the flared wheel arches and rising shoulder-line, it looks brawny as well.
This platform will be powered by the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel from Fiat that also powers the Jeep Compass and we are sure about this because Tata Motors has already placed an order for more than a lakh engines already. The H5 might come with the 140bhp setup making it one of the most powerful machines in the segment, something that Tata has already done with the Nexon, and are reaping its benefits. The Tata Gravitas will go into production by the end of 2018 or early 2019 and will rival the likes of the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and in terms of pricing the Isuzu MU-X.
