Mahindra Marazzo MPV bookings open in India, launch on September 3
Mahindra and Mahindra is gearing up to launch the Marazzo MPV in India. The company has already confirmed the official launch date for the same as September 3. And now Mahindra dealerships have already started accepting bookings for Marazzo MPV. The booking amount varies from Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 depending on the dealer and the city. The upcoming MPV will be manufactured in Nasik, which is a part of the 1,500 crore investment that Mahindra has planned for the Nashik and the Igatpuri plants. The Mahindra Marazzo, when launched in India, will primarily rival the Toyota Innova Crysta as the company has dropped strong hints of the same. We believe Mahindra will price this one competitively where the base variants of the MPV will compete with the top-spec variants of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in India.
The Mahindra Marazzo gets a shark-inspired design that can be seen in the streamlined and aerodynamic shape, in the overall silhouette and in the front grille inserts which resemble shark-like teeth and adds to the vehicle's aggressive stance. The design cues further flow into the tail lamps that are inspired by the tail of a shark. The company further adds, the Mahindra Marazzo has been benchmarked against global standards of quality, technology, testing and validation norms, safety, regulations and emission. It underwent the most rigorous testing any Mahindra vehicle has ever been subjected to. The Marazzo has been developed by the Mahindra's North American Technical Centre (MNATC) in Troy, Michigan, and will be the first vehicle to be designed here. The same centre will be responsible for the development of future Mahindra vehicles for both Indian and international markets
The Marazzo will get a more subdued dash design when seen alongside the XUV 500. The most prominent feature is the piano-black finish which covers the entire length of the dash. The instrument cluster will have bright backlighting while another prominent feature will be the dash-mounted gear-lever, which should free up space between the front occupants. A fairly large infotainment screen is also expected on the top variants. Roof-mounted AC vents will also be available.
The MPV is expected to be powered by Mahindra's new 1.6-litre diesel engine which should produce around 128PS and 305 Nm. A petrol engine might also be made available later in the car's production run. The MPV will share its monocoque construction with the XUV500 and KUV100.
