Mahindra launched the all-new Marazzo in the Indian market back in 2018 and the car has become quite popular in the Indian market. The Marazzo takes on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in the Indian market and is known for its super-silent cabin and smooth diesel engine. At the time of the launch of Marazzo, Pawan Goenka announced that they are working on the petrol variant of the Marazzo and it will be launched in the Indian market in the coming years. Well, the Marazzo petrol is almost ready and it will be launched in the market in April.
The new petrol variant of the Marazzo will get powered by the mStallion range of engines that were revealed by the manufacturer at the 2020 Auto Expo. The manufacturer will use the 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol, direct-injection engine codenamed as G15. The Marazzo will become the first car in the line-up to get powered by the mStallion engine option.
The engine itself is quite advanced and gets integrated exhaust manifolds, off-set crankshafts, a 250 bar fuel-injection rail system and dual-mass flywheel for smooth operation. Mahindra will use the 1.2-litre turbocharged variant from the mStallion family to power the Mahindra XUV300 in the coming months.
Coming back to the Marazzo, the G15, four-cylinder, petrol-turbocharged engine that will power the MPV generates a maximum power of 163 PS and peak torque of 280 Nm. Mahindra will also introduce the six-speed automatic transmission with petrol MPV. The regular variants will continue to get the 6-speed manual transmission as standard.
It should be noted that Mahindra’s Marazzo direct rival – the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is only available with a petrol engine option in the market. With the Marazzo petrol in the market, we might get to see a higher sales figure in the coming months. When Maruti Suzuki offered the Ertiga diesel, the sales split used to the almost 50-50. The customers who strictly want diesel engine will now have the Marazzo as an option while petrol engine of the Marazzo is also much more powerful than the Ertiga.
