Mahindra confirmed during the launch that the company will introduce petrol and the automatic variant of Marazzo in 2020

Mahindra officially launched the much-awaited Marazzo in India a few days ago, but the MPV is available only with a diesel engine and Dr Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra confirmed during the launch that the company will introduce petrol variant of Marazzo in 2020, as they are waiting for government to introduce new BSVI emission norm.

The Utility Vehicle manufacturer is currently working on a new petrol engine and it could also make its way into upcoming S201 compact SUV. The company didn’t introduce petrol engine at the launch, as they will need to update it again during BSVI transformation, which is too expensive.

The new petrol engine could be 1.5 L unit and it might produce around the same power output as the diesel engine. Mahindra might tune the engine for efficiency and it might be mated to the same 6-speed manual gearbox.  We reported earlier that Mahindra will introduce an automatic variant of Marazzo around BSVI deadline.

The automatic variant is expected to be available with both petrol and diesel engines. The flexible and scalable platform of the Marazzo MPV could be used to develop new seven-seat SUV or a crossover model in the near future.
