The all-new Mahindra comes with an impressive list of features on offer
Under the bonnet, the Mahindra Marazzo M8 gets the power from a newly developed 1.5-litre diesel burner tuned for 121 bhp of power and 300 Nm of torque. The engine will send its power output to the front wheels of the MPV via a 6-speed manual transmission. The all-new Marazzo holds a decent ARAI certified fuel economy figure of 17.6 km/l. A turbocharged gasoline engine variant is also slated to be introduced in 2020 after an AMT option for the diesel motor is likely to come in the coming time.
As far as the Marazzo’s concerned, it is the first “Made-in-India” MPV to be rated 4 stars at the G-NCAP safety norms. Launched back in the Indian market in September 2018, the Mahindra Marazzo was priced at Rs 9.99 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With Rs 8.000 more than the seven-seater, the Marazzo M8 will rival the likes of 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Toyota Innova Crysta in the Indian auto space.
