Today I was scheduled to take my Marazzo to the service center for the first free service @ 1,000 km. It was just back from a weekend trip of 450 km with some members of my family. I noticed resistance from the gearbox to slip into the 1st and 2nd gears (sometimes, not always). It required undue effort to slot into the gears. I brought this to the notice of the service advisors and upon a test drive, they agreed about this problem and agreed to look into it. However I got a call later saying that even after their attempts the problem remains. They have contacted Mahindra for a solution as this is the first time that they have come across this problem in the Marazzo. I hope this is not something big, though I fear the worst. Fingers crossed.

I went through it and found it very interesting.

How do you feel about the ride quality on the highways with 35 psi tyre pressure?

No the roof rails are not functional. They are stuck to the roof, not bolted (did not want to mess with the bodywork of a new car). You can add certain carriers on it, depending on the design of the clamps. The ones that make the carriers sit higher will do. I have found door and bumper protectors are not very protective. When the car will brush against another vehicles, it will often be at a different spot to where you have applied the protectors. And some of these protectors compromise on the overall aesthetics and looks of the car.

UPDATE: So Mahindra decided to change the gear shifter tower on my car as they could not resolve the problem after trying multiple things. It is shocking that such change of part needs to be done a brand new car. My service center did not have this part in stock, so they have ordered it from the company. Meanwhile I have the car back with me as it could 4-5 days for the part to arrive.

Does anyone know whether there is an option in the Marazzo's system to change to illumination from Purple to some other colour?

I checked the owner's manual (link), but couldn't find it.

I don't think you have this option. Its just one fixed colour.

When I'm full house, I keep 35, however I find the car to be more compliant at 32 psi.

Thanks. Dropped the idea as of now until I get some better options.

Pls accept that some part of risk is always involved with a new launch. Even the Crysta had some. Probably for that reason GTO suggested to wait for at least an year before going for a new model from Mahindra's stable. But, trust me the things will be rectified soon and this can happen to any car. Touch wood my car is performing perfectly, so it is not a general problem.

I love DRLs on cars. But I feel the Marazzo should deserved a better design for its DRLs. They are the inverted version of the first generation facelifted (2011 i guess) Hyundai i20 DRLs.

I got footboard installed on my Marazzo. It bottoms out even on small speed breakers and potholes. My Swift does much better than Marazzo !!

Even though the footboard accessory does not come with a disclaimer ‘may decrease the effective ground clearance massively’, it is expected. Since the Marazzo’s wheelbase is larger than the Swift’s, the ground clearance reduction would be more prominent. Measure the ground clearance now considering the footboard and check how much of a difference it has made to the factory ground clearance. You may need to remove the accessory if it is bottoming out a lot.

Last weekend I went to test drive the Ertiga with high hopes on VDI/ZDI variants. After test driving not so comfortable Ertiga, ended up driving Marazzo from near by showroom.I felt that the Marazzo is superior and better engineered vehicle compared to Ertiga.

However there is a catch, The Ertiga ZDI is close to 10.39 ex-showroom which is loaded with fancy features like start stop button, auto folding mirror etc and also has an auto-AC. However M2, the base variant of the Marazzo is not even equipped with remote central lock forget about electrically adjustable mirror or the fog lamp .

Any idea if it possible to fit the central lock , fog lamps in the M2 version of Marazzo from the showroom? I can trade off Ertiga ZDI for manually adjustable/ foldable mirrors , lack of Auto-AC but surely lack of remote lock will be a big pain. The next M4 variants crosses 10L ex-showroom tax slab in Karnataka hence the M4 on-road prices will be significantly costlier than M2 for the couple of lame feature it offers over M2 base variant.

As per this post, Mahindra had recalled the foot step https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...ml#post4530307 (Mahindra Marazzo : Official Review)

Fog lamps are an easy retrofit at the showroom but if your variant doesnt have a switch, it will be slightly difficult or you will need a different switch for them.

Central locking at the showroom can be done with their accessory vendor so that you do not face any warranty hassles if they arise.

That's pretty apt description. I am sure this was the product brief for Marrazzo.

This is unfortunate. Because for the money, I think that the Marazzo that is the better product. Yes, it has some irritating ergonomic niggles in the interior, such as that annoying handbrake, the non-reclining 3rd row and the small boot.

But, on the flip side, the interiors of the Marazzo feel much more spacious than that of the Innova. Also, the Marazzo's engine refinement and driveability is excellent. The Innova, by contrast, feels like a battle tank with heavy steering, poor NVH, and a dancing gear lever that makes me feel like I am driving an ST bus.

Then, you have to factor in the GNCAP rating for the Marazzo. I don't think that Toyota is even inclined to participate in GNCAP ratings.

Finally, the Innova's pricing is absolutely ridiculous!! I actually think that the Marazzo itself should have been 14.5 to 15 lacs on the road (rather than 17) for a top end M8. That would have been fair.

I say all this after back to back TDs of both cars.

I work in a PSU. Its one of the maharatnas. Recently our CMD was at the plant for a 2 day visit. He drove down the 400 odd kms from Delhi along with his entourage.

The vehicle he uses these days is a Marazzo. White plates, speculatively his personal choice among all the options he had.
