Mahindra & Mahindra is on course to launch its new premium MPV - Marazzo. The new MPV is expected to give a tough challenge to established rivals like Toyota Innova Crysta and Tata Hexa and will enter the market on September 3.
Ahead of the imminent launch, Mahindra has started a teaser campaign while images of the Marazzo have been leaked online.
TeamBHP has revealed images of Marazzo which were apparently taken at a dealer stockyard. The Marazzo branding on the sides indicates that the spotted unit is with the dealer for test drive and display purposes.
Mahindra Marazzo features an unmistakable MPV silhouette in line with Toyota Innova Crysta. The company Mahindra claims Marazzo's the exterior design has been taking inspiration from a shark.
In line with the theme, Marazzo gets a toothy grille finished in chrome. It is flanked by twin-pod headlamps with projectors similar to XUV500. The sculpted front bumper has a wide air dam and it also houses triangular fog lamps. Overall, the front design looks more mature and contemporary.
The Marazzo spotted at the dealership stockyard gets a chrome window line and door handles, blacked-out B and C-pillars and ORVMs with integrated turn signals. The higher-spec variants will get 6-spoke alloy wheels with a diamond-cut finish.
At the rear, boomerang-shaped tail lamps are connected with a chrome garnish. A dual-tone rear bumper with integrated reflectors completes the look.
Mahindra has already revealed the images of Marazzo's interior. The piano black shaded dashboard is upmarket while the use of beige and faux-aluminium inserts adds flavour. The T-shaped centre console, chrome accent to the AC vents are neatly integrated to the new dashboard.
The image indicates that a touchscreen infotainment screen at the centre of the dash is a 7.0-inch unit. The Marazzo will also boast of roof mounted AC vents which Mahindra claims is the industry's first surround cool technology.
Mahindra is tight-lipped about the powertrain of Marazzo and reports claim that the premium MPV will debut with a new 1.5-litre diesel engine. The mill is expected to develop around 121hp and 300Nm, which will be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Marazzo will be offered in seven and eight-seat configurations and the dealers have already started accepting bookings at a token amount of Rs 10,000.
