The Marazzo Ef­fect

Car India - - FEATURE -

For a drive like this, the Marazzo was a good fit. Though nei­ther as im­pos­ing nor pow­er­ful as the SUVs, the Marazzo was spa­cious and com­fort­able and even­tu­ally ticked all the right boxes. The first two rows had enough space to seat four of us com­fort­ably and we folded the third row to make room for our con­sid­er­able lug­gage and pho­tog­ra­phy equip­ment. Packed to the brim with crea­ture com­forts and var­i­ous op­tions for en­ter­tain­ment, there was never a dull mo­ment on the road. As a per­former, the Marazzo was no slouch and made driv­ing along moun­tain roads an easy af­fair. With am­ple torque on tap and gear­ing to match, I was able to eas­ily ne­go­ti­ate up­hill sec­tions in third gear; drop­ping a cog only for the sharp hair­pins. Fur­ther­more, sixth gear al­lowed easy cruis­ing on Bhutan’s high­ways. By the way, it re­turned 15 kilo­me­tres to a litre. Not bad at all, eh? Would I do the same tour with the Marazzo again? Why, cer­tainly.
