Though, Mahindra has not revealed the Marazzo MPV fully but the automaker definitely revealed the vehicle in bits and pieces. Mahindra has revealed the interior and the dashboard details of the upcoming MPV. As a part of the 1,500 crore investment that Mahindra has planned for the Nasik and the Igatpuri plants, the Marazzo MPV will be manufactured in Nasik. Codenamed as the U321 to most for the longest time, Mahindra Marazzo derives its name from a word in the Basque language, which translates to ‘shark’ in English. Marazzo is the first Mahindra passenger vehicle to be co-developed by its Research Valley, in Chennai and its North American Technical Centre, and has been co-designed by Pininfarina and Mahindra’s Kandivali design studio, in Mumbai. The MPV will be offered in seven- and eight-seat configurations.
In terms of design, the 2018 Mahindra Marazzo will be offered with front look with shark-teeth like grille inserts, shark tail inspired tail lamps, shark fin antenna, futuristic purple color instrument cluster, leather interiors and industry first surround cooling system inspired by the name itself. The recently revealed interior shows industry-first surround cooling system mounted in the center of the roof as well as a bright cabin with light colored seats and a dual-tone dashboard with a piano-black finish and 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will support the likes of Apple Car Play, Android Auto along with navigation and Bluetooth. The middle row seats will get the option of a single 3-seater or individual captain seats, while the third-row seats can be accessed by folding the second-row seats and the third-row seats can also be folded to increase the boot capacity on the Marazzo. Also, the third-row seats can get a bottle holder on each side.
Also, the powertrain specifications are kept under the cover till now. However, the MPV is expected to be offered with a new diesel powertrain only. The engine in question is the new 1.5-litre diesel mill which is speculated to offer 119 bhp of power and 300 Nm of peak torque. Initially, the engine is expected to get a six-speed manual gearbox while an AMT or automatic transmission is expected to be added at a later stage. Also, we can expect the manufacturer to introduce a petrol engine later as well.;
When launched, the 2018 Mahindra Marazzo will take against the likes of the Toyota Innova Crysta, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Tata Hexa in the segment, while the pricing expectations will be somewhere in between that of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Innova Crysta.
