Default New Mahindra MPV caught testing in Chennai

The Marazzo really is turning out to be a smart looker. They seem to be reaching to the dealerships for training. Here are few things from my observations.

I guess there will be two alloy wheels on offer. Similar to the XUV500. The top end (let's say M10) might have the dual tone 17 inchers while the subsequent lower trim will have the 16 inchers alloy wheels as seen above.

Also, notice there is a subtle kink between the headlamps and the grille.

The OVRMs are attached to the doors as opposed to the traditional positioning on the A pillars. This might reduce wind noise at the A pillars.

There seems to be strong crease running from the lower front door and goes till the rear doors. The shark's gills maybe?

DRLs sit in top of the fog lamps.

From some angles, particularly the side profile, the Marazzo reminds me of the Xylo. Hopefully it has left the ills of the Xylo behind.

Kudos to Mahindra for this effort. It is heartening to see Indian manufacturers innovating and bringing us great products. Having said that i am little apprehensive of Mahindra's quality control/engineering. They have had a lot of goof ups lately, like clutch failures on Scorpio, fuel metering issues on KUV petrol, multiple issues on TUV 300: AMT, rear wheel articulation etc. Marazzo with a brand new engine and platform may have its share of gremlins. I particularly concerned about the new engine. Going by the media reports it is only 1.5 L producing 119BhP. That is a lot of power from a small capacity diesel. Implying a very high common rail pressure, which means high sensitivity to bad fuel. I would have stuck to 2.2 Mhawk 120 if available as an option.

Mahindra management claims that Marazzo has undergone most testing of any vehicle of thier vehicles. I hope this product has the reliability which we saw in the earlier Scoprios. At least the drive-train is bullet proof. Best of luck to Mahindra.

Rumour: Mahindra Marazzo bookings open

According to a media report, some Mahindra dealerships have started accepting bookings for the upcoming Marazzo MPV for a token amount of Rs. 10,000.

Mahindra is yet to officially unveil its new MPV and has only released a handful of teaser images till date. According to the images, the car features a 7-slat grille flanked by twin-pod headlamps at the front and wraparound tail lights at the rear.

On the inside, the Marazzo gets beige interiors with a dual-tone dashboard. It comes with a touchscreen infotainment system, a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and a twin-pod instrument cluster with a purple back light. The car is expected to be offered in 7 and 8-seater configurations.

Reports suggest that the Marazzo will be powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine, which is rumoured to produce 128 BHP and 300 Nm of torque. The engine is expected to be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

Interesting to note that Marazzo has now started arriving at dealerships ahead of the unveil & launch on 3rd Sep. Gives it an early mover advantage ahead of the New Ertiga launch expected sometime in Oct. Remains to be seen if M&M are providing an Autobox variant on this one. That would enable them to cater to a wider section of the market that is leaning towards Automatics clearly.

Interesting to see Marazzo also getting Puddle Lamps from the Video above. Another feature revealed before official details are out.

Car looks AMAZING for an MPV, but size makes me question the engine option they have chosen, 1.5L for their biggest car yet ? even the basic TUV300Plus gets bigger heart.

Appears to be of lodgy size. 125 bhp should be sufficient. I am waiting for the official review to check the pulling power with 7 on board. This should compete with brv too(maybe). A good fight brewing between facelift Ertiga, BRV, Marazzo, Lodgy and their own Xylo.

Yes, even I was expecting the 2.2 ltr mhawk 120bhp engine to be plonked in for this mpv. But now it is 1.5 ltr 120bhp engine, and have to wait and see how it performs.

Amazing to see the full vehicle uncovered and exposed before official unveil.

Were you not able to click the photos of the interior as well?

Any feature list out yet based on seeing the interiors of the Test Drive vehicles?

Any brochure scans leaked?

Any update on the tyre sizes between various spec models seen here in the yard?

Sorry buddy, answer is No for all your questions above. I haven't seen this personally, it was shared by one of my friend. I can check with him if he has more pictures.

I think this car is planned to be launched some time in September, by then we should have the details on interior, specs and so on.

Overall looking very good. I think a good attempt.

I wish if they could accommodate the tailgate handle beneath the chrome strip (above the license plate).

Now we need to see the prices and other features.
