Mahindra has launched the all-new Marazzo in India. Priced in the Rs 9.99 lakh-Rs 13.90 lakh (ex-showroom India) range, it slots neatly in between the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Rs 6.34 lakh-Rs 10.69 lakh) and the Toyota Innova Crysta (Rs 14.34 lakh-Rs 22.70 lakh), creating a niche for itself in the MPV market.
Four variants of the Mahindra Marazzo are available, the prices of which (introductory, ex-showroom India) is as follows:
M2 7-seater - Rs 9.99 lakh
M2 8-seater - Rs 10.04 lakh
M4 7-seater - Rs 10.95 lakh
M4 8-seater - Rs 11 lakh
M6 7-seater - Rs 12.40 lakh
M6 8-seater - Rs 12.45 lakh
M8 7-seater- Rs 13.90 lakh
The Mahindra Marazzo is a truly global product, with most of the development of the MPV done at the company’s MANA (Mahindra Automotive North America) development centre in Detroit, design inputs taken from subsidiary Pininfarina and of course the Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai and Mahindra headquarters in Nashik.
Mahindra says the is inspired by a shark. This includes the smoked dual-barrel headlamps, the chrome shark-tooth inserts on the grille, large foglamps with eyebrow like LED DRLs. The hood smoothly flows onto the windshield, giving the Marazzo an imposing look up front.
At the side, the Marazzo gets the typical MPV traits - the large glasshouse, the flat roof and a stretched out body. But there are flourishes all around - the chromed door handles, the large 17-inch alloy wheels with fat 215-section tyres, the blacked out pillars creating that floating-roof effect. The shark-inspired snout is evident when the Marazzo is looked at from the side.
At the rear, the typical MPV bulk has been cleverly hidden using a large chrome strip on the hatch-door. The taillamps are also inspired by the shark, especially its tail - all lamps are integrated into this. The exhaust tips are hidden from view. There are six colours on offer - Maroon, Silver, Purple, White, Black and Blue.
The Marazzo is more about space and class than outright excitement on the inside. The dashboard features a large piano black insert with some graphics near the outer A/C vents, there's also a ceramic-finished insert under the black insert for some relief. The centre console is dominated by a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto connectivity but no Apple Carplay. The display also doubles up the screen for the company’s Digisense connected vehicle tech and the reverse camera.
There are two seating configurations available in the Mahindra Marazzo - 7-seater and 8-seater - all with front-facing seats. Pictured here is the 7-seater variant with captain seats in the 2nd row.
Mahindra has fitted the Marazzo with an all-new ‘D15’ diesel-engine. The D15 is a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel 4-cylinder unit developing 121Ps @ 3500rpm of maximum power 300Nm @ 1750-2500rpm of peak torque. For now, Mahindra is only offering the Marazzo with a 6-speed manual transmission. The engine has been designed to keep NVH levels low. Using lightweight materials has kept the total engine weight at a low 141kg, an offset crank, patent-pending scissor-gears and a dual-mass flywheel have been added to reduce NVH. A petrol engine and automatic transmission will be offered once BSVI norms kick in in 2019.
