By around noon on September 3,
2018, just over two months after the company Mahindra & Mahindra christened
its multi-purpose vehicle code named U321 as Marazzo, this new MPV will finally
be launched. As journalists from all over the country flock to the company’s
Nashik plant in the western state of Maharashtra, Motown India team spotted the
camouflaged Marazzo on the highway connecting Mumbai to Nashik.
As it sped away, trying to
wedge past a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and a Toyota Innova, maybe the Universe was
trying to convey that the real fight in the MPV segment would now begin with
the coming in of the Mahindra Marazzo. But it would definitely not be easy to
dethrone either of the two because both the Ertiga and the Innova (Crysta) are
well entrenched in the Indian market.
A lot would depend on the
price, the features and of course the engine of the Mahindra Marazzo. It could come
with a 1.5 litre or 1.6 litre diesel engine. It is definitely feature rich from
the inside and the outside and the company has not compromised a wee bit on the
styling and the loaded features.
Just to give a quick comparison,
the Maruti Suzuki Eritga is priced in the range of Rs 8.79 lakh and 10.69 lakh
and comes with only a 1373 cc petrol engine mated to either a 5-speed Manual
Transmission or a 4-speed Automatic. The Toyota Innova Crysta is priced in the
range of Rs 14.34 lakh to Rs 21.57 lakh. It comes with three different engine
options: one petrol and two diesel with capacities of 2694cc, 2393cc and 2755cc
respectively producing great power and torque.
Mahindra’s own Multi purpose
vehicle, the Xylo comes with two diesel engines of CRDi 2489cc and mHawk 2179cc.
Now the Marazzo needs to earn its place in the sun.
