The Mahindra Marazzo is offered in a choice of four variants, starting at an introductory price of Rs 9.99 lakh and going upto Rs 13.90 lakh (ex-showroom pan-India)

Mahindra has introduced its new body-on-frame MPV, the Marazzo. It goes up against the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Renault Lodgy. However, its ladder-frame construction and larger footprint make it a bit expensive than its direct rivals.  So, a Rs 10 lakh starting price for the diesel version seems justified, especially when you take into account the current-gen Ertiga powered by a diesel motor is priced from Rs 8.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Marazzo is available in 4 variants: M2, M4, M6 and M8. Which variant of the Mahindra Marazzo makes the most sense? We find out.

Colour options

  • Iceberg White

  • Oceanic Black

  • Mariner Maroon

  • Shimmering Silver

  • Aqua Marine

  • Poseidon Purple

Standard Safety Features

  • Dual front airbags

  • ABS with EBD and brake assist

  • All four disc brakes  

  • Isofix child seat anchors

  • Rear parking sensors

  • Rear defogger

  • Seatbelt reminder (driver)

  • Overspeeding alert system (over 80kmph, 3 acoustic warnings)

Mahindra Marazzo M2: Bare Bones. Good for fleet operators

Ex-showroom India

Mahindra Marazzo M2

Price

Rs 9.99 lakh

Lights:  Dual-barrel multi-reflector halogens  

Audio: Doesn't get it   

Comfort: Manual AC, manual roof-mounted air-con for second- and third-row, tilt-adjustable power steering, power windows, rear USB charger (second-row),  front and rear armrests

Tyres: 215/65 cross-section with steel wheels

Is it worth buying?

The base-spec Marazzo M2 comes sans all the frills. It doesn't even get a basic audio system, which is expected on a vehicle with a Rs 10 lakh price tag. While an audio system can be bought later, we would have appreciated the addition of features like height-adjustable driver's seat, which can't be. Moreover, basic necessary features such as electronically adjustable outside rearview mirrors, rear parking sensors along with safety add-ons like rear defogger are all missing.  

The bare bones M2 variant, then, makes a better case for fleet operators than private buyers. However, if you're planning to be chauffeured then you can go for the M2, especially when the Marazzo's highlight feature, the roof-mounted air conditioning system, comes as standard.

Mahindra Marazzo M4: Pricier for the features it adds

Ex-showroom India

Mahindra Marazzo M4

Price

Rs 10.95 lakh*

Price premium over M2

~ Rs 96K

*Mahindra charges an additional Rs 5,000 for the eight-seat configuration

Over the base M2, the M4 gets:

Aesthetics: Body-coloured outside rearview mirrors and wheel caps

Audio: Double-DIN audio system with Bluetooth phone integration, Mahindra Blue Sense app support, voice alerts along with USB, AUX, iPOD and tuner options. The unit is coupled to a four-speaker system.  

Comfort: Electronically adjustable outside rearview mirror (ORVMs), height-adjustable driver's seat, front USB charger   

Safety: Rear washer and wiper and rear defogger

Is it worth buying?

The M4 should have been the base variant of the Marazzo as it ticks the basic features that a vehicle at this price point warrants. However, we would have appreciated the addition of a remote keyless entry as well. As it stands, basic features like height-adjustable driver's seat – so you can easily find a comfortable driving position – and electric ORVMs are there. Mahindra gives you an option of an eight-seater configuration with the M4, which wasn't the case with the M2. While the M4 does add a few essential features, it is certainly pricier as the almost Rs 1 lakh hike isn't justifiable for the added goodies.

Mahindra Marazzo M6: Significantly feature-rich than the M4, but a bit on the pricier side  

Ex-showroom India

Mahindra Marazzo M6

Price

Rs 12.40 lakh*

Price premium over M4

~ Rs 1.45 lakh

*Mahindra charges an additional Rs 5,000 for the eight-seat configuration

Over the M4, the M6 gets:

Aesthetics: Body-colour door handles with chrome highlighters, door cladding with chrome highlighter, chrome boot-lid applique, interior piano black inserts, glossy dashboard panel and AC chrome accents       

Lights: Dual-barrel headlamps with low-beam projector and multi-reflector high beam along with cornering lamps, front and rear fog lamps   

Audio:  7-inch resistive touchscreen infotainment system with built-in navigation, 1GB built-in memory and Mahindra Blue Sense app support

Comfort: Follow-me-home headlamps, padded door armrests, multi-function steering wheel, relatively premium fabric upholstery, lumbar support for the driver, remote entry, tambour door for the central console and a 4.2-inch colour driver info display that showcases navigation details, personal reminders (anniversary, birthdays, take rest, and more) among a host of other info

Wheels: Alloy wheels

Safety: Rear parking sensors, theft alarm, emergency assistance (automatically calls emergency services through the connected phone in an car of any mishap when airbags are deployed)

Is it worth buying?

While it certainly raises the premium quotient of the MPV, the M6 also comes out as a pricier variant like the M4. Moreover, some features like auto climate control and cruise control are still sorely missing given the around Rs 14 lakh price point (on-road). Mahindra would have made it more appealing if the M6 can be had with the M8 7-inch touchscreen unit with Android Auto connectivity.

Mahindra Marazzo M8: For those looking for a decently loaded MPV, premium on the higher side

Ex-showroom India

Mahindra Marazzo M8

Price

Rs 13.90 lakh*

Price premium over M6

~ Rs 1.5 lakh

Over the M6, the top-sec M8 gets:

Aesthetics: Chrome door handles

Lights: Daytime running lights  

Audio: 7-inch capacitive touchscreen (smartphone-like) featuring capacitive-based touch buttons with haptic feedback. Like the XUV500, it packs Android Auto connectivity and Mahindra Blue Sense app support. The unit comes with 8GB of internal memory   

Comfort: Automatic climate control, cruise control, electronically foldable outside rearview mirrors, leatherette upholstery, rear window sunshade, cooled glove box with illumination and entry assist lamp    

Tyres: 215/60 cross-section 17-inch tyres shod on dual-tone machine finished alloys  

Is it worth buying?

Unlike newer cars nowadays, the Marazzo offers noticeable feature disparity among its lineup. And the M8 is the only one variant that gets all the bells and whistles, including several that should have been offered in the lower variants, like auto climate control and cruise control. The highlight of the M8 variant is its Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (to be added later)-enabled 7-inch touchscreen system and leatherette upholstery. The premium of Rs 1.5 lakh that Mahindra is charging for the M8 is on the higher side but it's only the M8 variant that will make you feel that you're driving a modern-day vehicle.
