The Marazzo is available in four variants: M2, M4, M6 and M8, priced at Rs. 9.99 lakhs, Rs. 10.95 lakhs, Rs. 12.4 lakhs and Rs. 13.9 lakhs, respectively. The MPV is sold with 7-seat and 8-seat options. All variants of the Mahindra Marazzo MPV receive twin airbags, ABS+EBD, seat belt warning and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard.

The MPV is powered by a brand new 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine that’s been jointly developed by Mahindra and Ssangyong under a new engine family. The motor makes 121 Bhp-300 Nm. A 6-speed manual gearbox drives the front wheels of this body-on-ladder MPV, which has a transversely mounted engine (Transverse engine on a ladder frame front-wheel drive vehicle is a world first, Mahindra says).

While an all-wheel drive layout will be offered for specific global markets, an automatic gearbox option is expected to be offered in India in future.
