Mahindra Marazzo is currently powered by a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine that belts out max power of 121bhp and peak torque of 300Nm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission
Launched back in September 2018, the Mahindra Marazzo has been on sale with a 1.5-litre diesel engine. However, back at the official introduction, the company had clearly stated that the MPV would receive a petrol engine option at a later stage. Now, with the BSVI regulations at our doorsteps, it is being expected that the launch of the petrol model will be around the corner.
Interestingly, inspiration for the aesthetics of the Mahindra Marazzo has been taken from a shark, while the FWD MPV features a ladder-frame construction with transverse mounting of the motor.
Testing of the Mahindra Marazzo petrol is already underway. The MPV will be powered by the company’s new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the mStallion range of motors that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 last moth. While the motor can produce a maximum of 163PS of power and 280Nm of torque, it’s not known if it would stay in the same state of tune under the hood of the Marazzo.
The mStallion range of petrol engines from Mahindra comprises 1.2-litre and 2.0-litre engines that will even power the next generations of the Thar, Scorpio and XUV500. Other than forced induction, these engines also benefit from direct injection technology and overboost function. The same motors will be even used by SsangYong and Ford India.
At present, the Mahindra Marazzo is on sale with a 1.5-litre diesel engine that outputs a maximum power of 123PS and a peak torque of 300Nm. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Other than the introducing a petrol engine option, the company hasn’t planned any other change for its MPV.
The Mahindra Marazzo is underpinned by a one-of-a-kind body-on-frame structure with a transverse mounting of the engine. The unconventional layout has not only helped the company with some weight savings but has also put a cap on the ride height of the vehicle. The latter has, in turn, helped the manufacturer with optimum tuning of the dynamics.
