The Mahindra Marazzo was showcased in Mahindra Udaya Festival 2019. 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. Its shark-inspired design is evident in the 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.
Marazzo is a globally developed product, engineered through a collaboration between Mahindra North America Technical Centre (MNATC) and Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) in Chennai. The pedigree and global product development capabilities of the MNATC team of engineers and the young team of experts at MRV have been instrumental in bringing a new level of refinement and engineering excellence to this model. Marazzo comes with a patented architecture, for a unique balance of smooth ride, agile handling, space and quiet cabin.
Shark-Inspired Design: Marazzo’s shark-inspired design is evident in its sleek and
streamlined silhouette, in the front grille inserts which resemble the teeth of a shark, in the tail
lamps that are inspired by a shark’s tail and a shark-fin antenna (as an accessory). Marazzo’s
style-quotient is enhanced with projector headlamps, fog lamps with Daytime Running
Lamps, elegant chrome finishes on exteriors, twin-spoke 17” machined alloy wheels.
Patented Body-on-frame, front-wheel drive architecture: Marazzo has a unique world-first
architecture that provides drivers with a nimble “car-like” feel, being lighter than other similar vehicles, and also the toughness of a body-on-frame configuration.
Smooth Ride & Agile Handling: The rear suspension of the Marazzo has a lightweight “twist beam” construction, which provides excellent ride and handling with the highest suspension travel of 245mm in the segment. The Marazzo chassis is anchored by a fully boxed frame and includes forged aluminium front suspension components, which increases the handling responsiveness. Its Front Wheel Drive layout sends power to the front wheels making handling very easy and safe. The first-in-class Electric Power Steering improves real world fuel economy, steering feel and manoeuvrability. The Marazzo delivers an excellent turning radius of 5.25m to enable the driver to get in and out of the tightest situations.
Luxurious Space to seat up to 8 people: Marazzo’s design maximizes cabin space in all 3
rows and seats up to 8 people comfortably without increasing vehicle length making it one of the most compact yet spacious vehicles in the category. Marazzo offers best-in-class 1st &
2nd row shoulder room, and luxurious legroom that allows even a 6 foot tall person to stretch
his legs out and relax. This is complemented by a comfortable step-in height of 465mm
making it convenient for a woman in a saree or an elderly person without the use of a
footboard. Marazzo will come in 7-seater and 8 seater options with the 7-seater offering captain seats in the 2nd row. The 2nd row (in 8-seater) & 3rd row come with a foldable 60:40 split for 1055 litres of luggage space when completely folded down.
Quietest Cabin in its Class: Marazzo’s aerodynamic design ensures that powertrain and road NVH inputs are not amplified inside the vehicle. Marazzo is powered by a 1.5 litre, 4-
cylinder D15 Diesel engine designed for low noise, vibration and harshness. This makes for
the quietest cabin in its class. Noise measured at the driver’s ear is only 43 decibels (driver
ear noise at low idle).
Fastest Cooling in its Class: Marazzo offers you the industry-first ‘Surround Cool
Technology’ which, along with Fully Automatic Temperature Control (FATC), cools the cabin
faster (36meter/sec airflow) than other vehicles in the segment. The ‘Surround Cool’
Technology offers passengers the choice between Direct Mode and Diffused Mode.
