Mahindra Marazzo went on sale in India on 20th October, 2018. The premium 7-seater MPV is made available in four trims – M2, M4, M6 and M8 – with a 125bhp, 1.5L diesel and a 6-speed manual gearbox. While the existing powertrain is BS4-compliant, the carmaker will introduce the BS6-ready motor before April, 2020.
Prior to the engine upgrade, the company will launch the automatic version of the MPV. According to Autocar, the Mahindra Marazzo AMT (automated manual transmission) will see a release sometime next month (March, 2019). Initially, the MPV will receive a Magnetti-Marelli sourced AMT gearbox. Though, the carmaker will replace this unit with an Aisin-sourced torque convertor gearbox at a later stage.
