Thanks to this architecture, the Marazzo has a low and flat floor and a higher fuel mileage associated with monocoque along with the ruggedness of the typical ladder-on-frame construction.
The Mahindra Marazzo has been designed by company’s Kandivali-based design centre in cooperation with Pininfarina. The design of the company’s latest MPV has been inspired by shark.
