Mahindra Marazzo spotted at a yard, shows its interior
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Mahindra could now be dispatching display units of the Mahindra Marazzo to dealerships, ahead of its launch early next month. These images, shared by our reader Suyash from a private yard, show the MPV, albeit protectively covered to hide design details.
These images also offer the first look at a finished Marazzo's interior. The dashboard sports a dual-tone color theme with the bottom half featuring a beige color and the top half gets a significantly darker shade. The three-spoke steering wheel does not feature any infotainment controls, indicating this to be an entry- or mid-level variant.
The center console sports a touchscreen entertainment system however with chrome highlights for the volume and selector knobs. Seen below are the AC controls, which appear to be an automatic climate control unit, and these also feature chrome highlights. A 6-speed manual gearbox is seen here, which is reported to be an all-new unit, and will be the sole gearbox option at launch.
The second row of the Mahindra Marazzo will get options between a three-seater bench or individual captains chairs, as seen in this image. The Marazzo's key rival, the Maruti Ertiga, offers only a conventional bench, whereas the more expensive Innova Crysta can be had with captains chairs as an option.
The Mahindra Marazzo will be powered by an all-new 1.5-liter diesel engine reported to develop 121 hp and 300 Nm of torque. The same engine will be seen on the Mahindra S201 compact SUV which goes on sale this financial year.
