Its been over a year now, but certainly, Marazzo did not make an impact that was expected initially. It did manage to get an average sale of a 1000 units per month, whereas the Ertiga sells average 7,000 units per month. Now to attract more customers, the manufacturer will be offering fantastic propositions than before. It will be launching the petrol version of the Marazzo. Let’s see what all good things we are going to get from the Mahindra Marazzo Petrol.
Mahindra showcased three new petrol engines at the recent Auto Expo. The engines included- 1.2-litre(G12), 1.5-litre(G15) and 2.0-litre(G20). The Marazzo petrol will be getting the G15 among these, yes, of course, the diesel will be also retained. The new additional engine will be a mStallion 1.5-litre turbo-petrol that produces around 163 bhp of max power and 280 Nm of peak torque. The engine will then be mated with the 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. Considering the power, we are expecting it to be the most powerful vehicle in the price segment.
The current features will be carried forward in the new range of Marazzo. It will get touch screen infotainment system, automatic climate control, vents on the roof, cruise control. The safety features include 2-airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensor as a standard. The new Marazzo might also come with the panoramic sunroof as it has seen demand in today’s date.
The new range of Mahindra Marazzo will have different pricing when compared to the previous models. As the current diesel engine will be undergoing BS6 transition, the overall pricing will be different and is expected to have more value for money. Now we are expecting the pricing to be around 12 – 13 lakhs(ex-showroom).
The exterior looks of the MPV will be the same as the predecessor. However, we expect it to have some of the cosmetic tweaks to give it a fresh appeal. The current Marazzo gets very MPVish styling. The design of the grille and headlamp unit is inspired by the sharks face. The rear taillamp is again inspired by the sharks tail. Overall the design looks quite mature and simple.
The Mahindra Marazzo petrol and diesel trims will be competing against Maruti Ertiga and Toyota Innova. Considering the prices, Marazzo quite easily fills the gap between these two MPVs. It is a quite nice spot considering the market likings. You can watch our detailed review on Marazzo below to get the clear idea of the features and looks.
