DC Design, one of the most popular modification garages in India has modified a Mahindra Marazzo MPV. The modified Marazzo was showcased at the launch of the vehicle last year and this is the first time that interior of MPV has been spotted on a video.
The Marazzo seen in this video by Roadster Varun is based on the top-end M8 variant of the model. It gets a host of changes but most of the changes have been done on the inside of the vehicle. DC Design is known to transform the vehicles into lounges and this Marazzo has been modified on the same lines. It gets a new dashboard with faux wooden inserts all around. There is a thick chrome bar that bisects the dashboard and also makes the interior look much more premium. Even the steering wheel and the door panels get the faux wooden inserts to add a more premium feel and look to the car. The stock equipment like the touchscreen unit and the AC controls have been left untouched.
As it is a lounge vehicle, it gets electrified co-driver seat that can be adjusted from the buttons mounted on the central console. The Marazzo offers three rows of seats that can be configured to make space of 7 or 8 passengers. However, DC Design has not removed the last row of the seats and have installed new lounge seats in the middle row. Both the rear seats can be adjusted electronically. There is a special panel installed for the rear passengers who can use it to control the seats and adjust it according to the comfort and convenience. The control unit can be used to reposition the co-driver seat too. This can be used to make more legroom without disturbing the driver of the vehicle.
The vehicle also gets ambient lighting that can be adjusted through the same control pad in the rear. There are additional lights mounted on the roof of the Marazzo. To keep the drinks cool, DC Design has added a mini refrigerator on the middle of the rear seats. The small fridge can accommodate a few bottles of refreshments. There are two cup holders in front of the fridge can be revealed by pushing the top panel. For the users who want uninterrupted power, USB chargers and 12V sockets have been installed in the rear armrest that can keep the phones charged on the long journeys. The rear passengers also get electrically operated trays that can be used as a table. Apart from that, the rear passengers can also spend time on the personal entertainment screens mounted on the seats.
No changes have been done to the vehicle mechanically and it remains powered by the same 1.5-litre mHawk turbocharged diesel engine that develops a maximum of 120 Bhp and 300 Nm and comes with a manual transmission option only.
