The Marazzo MPV will officially be launched on September 3, 2018. The Marazzo name has been derived from a word in the Basque language, which translates to ‘shark’ in English. The car was co-developed by the company’s Research Valley, in Chennai, and its North American Technical Centre, and has been co-designed by Pininfarina and Mahindra’s Kandivali design studio, in Mumbai. Ananthan Ramkripa, Chief Designer at Mahindra, says a shark inspired the car’s design and these will be evident both inside and out.
It will be sold in seven- and eight-seat configurations. The seven-seat variant gets captain seats for the second row, while the eight-seater Marazzo gets a bench seat. The cabin will feature a 7.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, automatic climate control and AC vents for all three rows.
Expect it to come loaded with features, including Mahindra's latest infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, steering-mounted audio controls, automatic climate control with vents for all three rows, projector headlamps, daytime running lights and more.
The car will also see the debut of Mahindra’s new 1.5-litre diesel engine, likely to produce around 121hp and 300Nm. All variants will come with airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors as standard.
