  • Tata Gravitas is the name for the Buzzard.

  • The Gravitas is the seven-seat/ three-row Harrier.

  • It was spotted with emissions testing equipment.

Tata has recently revealed the name of the seven-seat Harrier, and it is ‘Gravitas’. The Gravitas has been spotted testing for the first time since the name reveals, and the spy shots don’t reveal much that we didn’t already know.

The Gravitas that was spotted was equipped with an emissions testing kit – no doubt the extra power that the 2.0-liter Kryotec engine will generate in the Gravitas (rumored to be 170 bhp and 350 Nm) is making Tata go through the motions of making sure it meets the stringent BS-Vl emission norms that will come into effect in April 2020.

The new norms are especially harsh on diesel, which is why a lot of car manufacturers are discontinuing diesel from their lineup when the BS-Vl norms kick in.

The spy shots, unfortunately, aren’t taken from low down, so we can’t see if the Gravitas that was photographed had all-wheel drive running gear. It will certainly be offered with front-wheel drives, like the Harrier, and it will have a six-speed automatic transmission sourced from Hyundai in addition to the six-speed manual that is currently offered in the Harrier – and driving modes will also be present to help its ability off paved roads.

Tata Gravitas Spied for the First Time

The spy shots reveal a couple of interesting details about the exterior styling as well: the roof bulges above the third row, to help the third row get some more headroom, but the roof rails smartly prevent the silhouette from reflecting that. 

The Gravitas is scheduled for a Feb 2020 reveal and launch, most probably at the Auto Expo 2020. It will compete with the likes of the seven-seat MG Hector, which is due for launch around the same time, and the newMahindra XUV 500, which will debut later in 2020.
