  • Tata Gravitas will be launched in February 2020.
  • It will use a 170 bhp 2.0-litre Kryotec turbo-diesel engine which will be BS-VI compliant since launch. 
  • Expected pricing will start from Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom).
Tata recently announced that the upcoming seven-seat Harrier which was internally codenamed: H7X will be officially called Gravitas. This is the very same model which was also named Buzzard or Cassini and made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. It has been set for February 2020 launch, most likely at the Auto Expo 2020. 
Tata commenced it road-testing in India soon after its Geneva Motor Show debut. Externally, it carries a Harrier inspired design, especially up front. Speaking of which, it uses the same high-raised styled bonnet sporting sleek-looking DRLs. While the split headlights have been featured at the lower-side, as seen on the Harrier.
Possible design alliterations in comparison to the latter are expected in the form of a differently designed front grille, tail lamps, upright tailgate with a roof spoiler and overall stretched geometry. It will make use of an elongated overhang which allows for the third-row accommodation.
Also, the use of a stepped roof will add more convenience to third-row passengers in terms of headspace. 
As for the dimensions, the Tata Gravitas stands at  4,661 mm in length (+63 mm), 1,894 mm in width and 1,786 mm (+80 mm) in height. The wheelbase, on the other hand, has been kept the same at  2,741 mm. 
The Tata Gravitas will make use of the 2.0-liter Kryotec turbo-diesel engine which will be seen in a more powerful 170 bhp form. This MultiJet II engine is developed by FCA and is called as  'Kryotec170'. It delivers 350 Nm of peak torque. Also, it goes without saying that it will be launched in BS-VI avatar. This engine will be paired to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The latter will be sourced from Hyundai. 
The Gravitas will be positioned as Tata's flagship offering and is expected to be priced from around Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom).
