The company had first showcased the car at the Geneva Motor Show with Buzzard as its name. Buzzard is otherwise a bird of prey that is known for its keen sense of sight and smell.
Gravitas refers to seriousness and importance of manner, according to the Cambridge Dictionary. So, taking the word in the context of vehicles means that the Gravitas from Tata Motors is looking to project itself as a classy offering with the company claiming that it will change the game in terms of luxury and performance.
The Gravitas is the second car, after Harrier, to have been built on the OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) architecture which has been developed jointly with Jaguar Land Rover.
With a 2.0-litre BS 6-compliant diesel engine, it will be positioned to take on a whole range of cars from Innova Crysta and Jeep Compass to even the Endeavour from Ford and the Fortuner from Toyota.
