A 6-seater Tata Gravitas is in the offing and could unveil at the Auto Expo 2020.
Spy images have spotted the 6-seater version of the Tata Gravitas testing on Indian roads for the first time.
Standing alongside the 7-seater variant, both these vehicles could steal the show at the 2020 Auto Expo.
Great news awaits auto lovers as Tata Gravitas will also be unveiled in its 6-seater avatar along with the 7-seater variant at the Auto Expo 2020 in February.
Spy images have captured a fully-camouflaged Tata Gravitas on the roads recently. On scrutinising the photos, it came to light that the test mule was not the 7-seater version but a new 6-seater variant of the same SUV.
The presence of the two Captain seats in the middle row was a dead giveaway, as the camouflaged vehicle did not reveal any exterior changes to the car. However, one can quickly identify the SUV, as the Tata Gravitas.
Similar to the 7-seater version of the vehicle, the Tata Gravitas six-seater should come with the low-mounted headlamps and the raised LED DRLs. The overall length of the spied car appears to be the same as that of its 7-seater variant. The roof rails look similar, and so do the 18-inch alloy wheels. The taillamps appear to be the same. The 6-seater version also should retain the upright tailgate along with the roof spoiler.
The 7-seater variant of the Tata Gravitas is more significant than the Tata Harrier. Similarly, this spotted SUV should also have the same dimensions (4661mmX1894mmX1786mm – LxWxH). It makes the vehicle taller than the Harrier by nearly eight centimetres. It also appears longer by around 6.3cm. Therefore, this 6-seater version should have fantastic ground clearance, similar to that of the 7-seater model.
The vehicle sports a stepped-up roof at the rear end to make it comfortable for the third-row occupants. Though not many details of the Tata Gravitas interiors are visible, one can expect them to be similar to that of the seven-seater SUV.
A couple of images do suggest that the 6-seater variant could get an electronic handbrake in the place of a pull-type handle as present in the Tata Harrier. Other features include the shark fin antenna that is prominently displayed in one of the images. The vehicle could also come with rear parking sensors. The sunroof is conspicuous by its absence.
As far as the engine configuration is concerned, it could be the same that is available in the 7-seater Tata Gravitas. This 2L turbo-diesel engine can deliver a power of 170ps and torque of around 350Nm. Initially, the BS6-compliant engine will mate with a 6-speed manual transmission system with an automatic system very much in the pipeline. It could get an introduction at a later stage.
The stage is perfectly set for the unveiling of the six-seater Tata Gravitas along with its 7-seater sibling at the Auto Expo 2020.
