MAHINDRA LAUNCHED the Marazzo MPV earlier this month at a starting price of Rs 9.9 lakh for the base version, while the top end version comes for Rs 13.90 lakh. The Marazzo is an all-new product, and if you want a more detailed view of the driving dynamics, flip through the pages for our first drive review. Set to take on the Toyota Innova Crysta, Maruti Ertiga, Renault Lodgy and Tata Hexa, Mahindra has invested $200 million towards the design and development of the Marazzo MPV, with some help from Pininfarina as well.
The styling of the Marazzo is inspired by the shark and several of the MPV’s styling bits have been designed on the same theme. The exterior is bold and aggressive and will surely make heads turn at a traffic junction. Up front, the Marazzo comes with a stylish chrome-toothed grille, bold double barrel headlamps with pilot lights, and eye-shaped fog lamps with integrated LED daytime running lamps. The MPV also features 17-inch alloy wheels, large ORVMs, and sharktail-inspired tail lamps, connected by a thick chrome slat. The cabin of the Mahindra Marazzo is offered in both 7-seater and
8-seater layouts, while offering a 40:20:40 split function.
The Marazzo is powered by a new 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that has been tuned to offer a maximum of 121bhp and develops a peak torque of
300Nm. The engine only comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and misses out on automatic gearbox.
