Mahindra & Mahindra is readying a wide range of new products and new generations of the existing model. Adding to it, the company will launch the BSVI compliant versions of the Marazzo, TUV300, Bolero and KUV100 in the next 2-3 months. A new media report suggests that Mahindra is all set to introduce the upgraded BS6-compliant version of the Marazzo MPV.
The upgraded Mahindra Marazzo will receive the revised 1.5-litre diesel engine, which will come fitted with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system with a rear-mounted urea tank to meet BS6 emission norms. The engine will also receive a diesel particulate filter. The BSVI compliant engine is likely to offer the same power output as the BS4 version. The powertrain produces 100bhp in Eco mode and 123bhp in power mode.
Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox. The MPV will also receive an automatic gearbox, which is likely to be launched later this year. The report further claims that the Marazzo will also witness a variant re-jig. The company is likely to remove the top-spec M8 variant, while the BS6 compliant model will be made available in both seven-and eight-seater options.
The BS6 Mahindra Marazzo variant line-up will start with the M2 trim, and the comnpany will introduce 2 new variants – the M4+ and M6+. The M6+ will be the new top-end variant. The BS6 Mahindra Marazzo will receive a price hike of around Rs 50,000. It will directly rival the higher-variants of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the lower variants of the Toyota Innova Crysta. However, the Ertiga will only be offered in petrol avatar post BSVI emission norms and the Innova Crysta BSVI model will get expensive.
