  • Tata Gravitas competes favorably with its immediate SUV rivals, the MG Hector and Mahindra XUV500.

  • All these SUVs will be available in the price bracket of Rs 15 to 20 lakhs.

  • The comparison of these three SUVs should be interesting.

The Tata Gravitas will be a better version of the Tata Harrier with its additional row of seats and other exciting features. Compared to the Tata Harrier, the Tata Gravitas specs show it is 80mm taller and 63mm longer. It thus classifies as one of the larger Tata SUVs. 

The Tata Gravitas engine is BSVI compliant. This 2.0L Kryotec engine can deliver a power of 170hp. The automatic transmission option available in the Tata Gravitas distinguishes it further from the Tata Harrier. There could be a petrol engine version, as well down the line.

However, Tata Gravitas is not the only new 3-row SUV available in its price range. MG has a 6-seater Hector and Mahindra, a 2nd-gen XUV500 lined up for competition. This comparison should make things more transparent.

Dimensions

MG Hector has always been a stiff competitor to the Tata Harrier. This 6-seater model with three rows takes on the Tata Gravitas. It is the longest of the three SUVs, but the Tata Gravitas is broader and taller than both these models. The second-gen Mahindra XUV500 could be marginally longer than its current version. Hence, it could compete with the Tata Gravitas favorably.

Interior Space

The Tata Gravitas gets a traditional 7-seat layout, whereas the MG Hector is a 6-seater model with the middle row getting a pair of Captain seats. The MG Hector could also come with a panoramic sunroof. It is not known whether Tata Gravitas will match this feature. The Mahindra XUV500 should come with a 7-seater arrangement, thereby ensuring ample cabin space as the other SUVs offer.

Engine

Both the Tata Gravitas and MG Hector could come equipped with similar engines that deliver the power of around 170hp and a peak torque of 350Nm. The Tata Gravitas is different as it features an automatic transmission system option. As on date, the MG Hector is the only SUV of the three to offer a petrol variant (a 48V mild-hybrid system).

Mahindra could fit a more potent engine, a 2.2L BSVI-compliant diesel motor capable of delivering a maximum power of 180hp. This engine could overpower both the Tata Gravitas and MG Hector engines. Mahindra could also offer an all-wheel-drive option.

Pricing

All these SUVs will be available in the price bracket of Rs 15 to 20 lakhs. We have an exciting two months ahead as these three vehicles could hit the Indian roads very soon, maybe by early 2020.
