Derived from Basque, a sub-language of Spanish, the word ‘Marazzo’ means shark. "The Mahindra Design Studio and Italian design house Pininfarina have collaborated closely during the design development process -as a result, the Marazzo reflects a design language that is an integral part of Mahindra’s bold, new generation of vehicles," said the company.
The vehicle has two seating options - 7-seater and 8-seater and will compete against Toyota Innova Crysta, Renault Lodgy and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. The company has spent around $200 million to make this product a reality.
The car's design features a streamlined and aerodynamic shape, in the overall silhouette and in the front grille inserts which resemble shark-like teeth and adds to the vehicle’s aggressive stance. The design cues further flow into the tail lamps that are inspired by the tail of a shark.
A 1.5 litre, four-cylinder D15 diesel engine powers the vehicle. Other features include 43.18 cm alloy wheels, high mounted LED stop lamps and fog lamps, power adjustable and foldable ORVMs, cluster with purple illuminator, tambour door centre console and luggage space of 190 litre (with all seat upright).
