Mahindra Marazzo booking appears to have begun in some showrooms across the country already for an initial token of Rs. 10,000

Mahindra & Mahindra is all pumped to launch a brand new MPV in the Indian market. Having officially revealed its name as Marazzo and along with it some details, the anticipation is mounting higher ahead of the commercial debut on September 3. It appears that some authorised dealerships across the country have begun receiving bookings for the premium MPV with initial token of Rs. 10,000.

The homegrown automaker has already confirmed that the Marazzo will be offered in both seven- and eight-seat configurations. The Marazzo nomenclature derived from Basque a sub-language of Spanish denotes ‘Shark’ as the MPV is touted to take plenty of styling influence from the elasmobranch fish known for its feisty character and breathtaking skills under water.

Mahindra has continuously been teasing the Marazzo as the twin-champer projector headlamp, shark-inspired tail lamp, upmarket interior and what was claimed to be industry-first surround cool AC technology and the dashboard have been highlighted in various social media posts.

The range-topping variants of the Mahindra Marazzo will boast seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, multiple airbags, reversing camera and sensor, automatic climate control, premium soft-touch materials, cruise control, driver assistance systems and a slew of other safety equipment will be on offer.

The seven-seat version will have individual captain chairs for the second row and the eight-seater will have a traditional bench setup for the final row. Mahindra has also confirmed that the Marazzo won’t replace any model in the domestic lineup, meaning that it will be positioned above the Xylo.

We expect it to be priced aggressively in the middle of upcoming Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Toyota Innova Crysta while addressing also customers wanting to own Tata Hexa. It will be powered by a brand new lightweight 1.5-litre diesel four-cylinder engine, which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 130 hp and 300 Nm. Initially, it is expected to be sold with a six-speed manual transmission as standard.
