Mahindra Marazzo receives the 4-star safety rating in the Global NCAP Test for adult occupancy.
Whereas the Tata Nexon has achieved the 5-star safety rating for adults protection and become the first car which is made in India to get this perfect rating, the Mahindra Marazzo is now the fifth vehicle to score 4 stars and the first Mahindra product to earn such a high rating in the test. The Marazzo MPV is packed with some standard safety features such as
Dual airbags in the front
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Seatbelt alert for the driver
Seatbelt pretensioners in the front
ISOFIX child seat anchorages
Mahindra Marazzo is equipped with a kit of safety features
To be more specific about the test results, the MPV scored 4 stars in adult passenger protection at 64kmph. Its rating is good as regards the protection for the driver and the front passenger’s head and neck. Nevertheless, the protection for the chest and knee for both of the driver and the front occupant was not quite good. The driver chest protection received a “Marginal” rating for the driver and an “Adequate” for the front occupant. In the meantime, the driver knee protection was judged as “Marginal” and that for the front passenger was evaluated between “Good” and “Adequate”.
As regards the protection for child passengers, the Marazzo scored only two stars. The vehicle is to offer an ISOFIX child seat with the top tether installed facing forward, so it cannot hamper excessive movement ahead during a collision, which can cause head injuries to children above three years old.

The Mahindra Marazzo was introduced to the Indian auto market in September 2018 with a price range between Rs 9.99-13.90 lakh. Compared to the newly-launched Marazzo, all the vehicles made after November 16, 2018 have received considerable improvements and the test results are only valid for the latter. Mahindra has announced that the Marazzo prices will increase in January 2019. It directly take on the likes of the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Ertiga; the top variant can even rival the Toyota Innova Crysta.
