Customised Mahindra Marazzo by DC Design involves a slew of interior changes to make the MPV plush and more upmarket
Mahindra Marazzo is expected to make a sizable impact in the domestic market courtesy of its bang-on-head pricing between Rs. 9.99 lakh and Rs. 13.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Competing mainly against the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the MPV is offered in both seven- and eight-seat options and comes loaded with a number of segment-first features like roof-mounted AC.
The biggest appealing factor of the Marazzo is its exterior as the Shark-inspired design language is captivating to say the least. The interior is also developed with premium quality in mind as the upmarket dashboard, purple instrument cluster and soft touch materials are key highlights. What if someone gives a lavish makeover for the Marazzo and how will it look?
Your imagination doesn’t have to run wild as India’s notorious customising house DC Design has come up with a version of its own. It is said to be offered at dealership level and can be booked from showroom. It was at display during Marazzo’s launch as DC Design has made a number of interior changes to give the MPV more premium appeal.
As you can see in the images, the steering wheel and door pads have been updated with faux leather and leather inserts along with dashboard matching lighting. The dashboard itself has been adorned with upmarket faux wooden panels and chrome inlays.
The customised Mahindra Marazzo features electrically operable seats with faux leather upholstery while the middle row with additional legroom has fully automated seats with reclining function. Other main equipment includes Android TV, iPad, 12 V charger, fridge inside the rear centre console with capacity of seven litres, capacitive touchscreen, etc.
On the outside, DC Design has not made any tweaks but we can expect the kit to be further enhanced in the near future. For those seeking exterior modification to the Marazzo, Mahindra offers an array of accessories. The M8 range-topping version comes equipped with LED DRLs, projector headlamps, LED tail lamps, 17-inch wheels, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, emergency alert function and so on.
No powertrain changes are expectedly made on the customised MPV as the Marazzo continues to use the newly developed 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 123 PS and 300 Nm peak torque. A petrol engine could be accompanied by automatic transmission during the time of BS6 deadline. Currently, power is transferred to the wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
