The BS6 Mahindra Marazzo MPV has been launched after a considerable delay due to the COVID-19 crisis, with an upgraded diesel powertrain, rejigged variant line-up and revised features list. We tell you about its price and what else to expect.
- 2020 Mahindra Marazzo price is Rs 11.25-13.59 lakh.
- Power still drawn from a 123hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine, albeit in BS6 guise.
- Line-up reduced to three trim levels (M2, M4+ and M6+) from the earlier four (M2, M4, M6 and M8).
Prices for the base M2 trim are now pegged at Rs 11.25 lakh, which translates to a significant increase of Rs 1.26 lakh compared to the BS4 version. The new, top-spec M6+ trim is priced at Rs 13.51 lakh for the 7-seater version and Rs 13.59 lakh for the 8-seater. In comparison, the previous BS4-spec model was priced at Rs 9.99-14.76 lakh, with the erstwhile M8 variant topping off the range.

BS6 Mahindra Marazzo engine
The Marazzo’s 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine has been updated to the latest emission norms. Performance figures for the four-pot motor continue unchanged at 123hp and 300Nm of torque. As before, a 6-speed manual gearbox is the sole transmission option, with power being channelled to the front wheels. The company had earlier confirmed that a diesel-automatic Marazzo is also in the pipeline, though it is yet to see the light of day.
Moving forward, the Marazzo will also gain a petrol mill from Mahindra’s mStallion family of engines. The 1.5-litre direct-injection, turbo-petrol unit will push out a substantial 163hp and 280Nm of torque, and will be mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an Aisin-sourced 6-speed auto gearbox.
BS6 Mahindra Marazzo variant line-up
Notably, Mahindra has used this opportunity to revamp Marazzo’s variant line-up. The MPV’s four trim levels from before (M2, M4, M6 and M8) have been reduced to three (M2, M4+ and M6+), with each variant being available in seven- and eight-seat configurations.
The entry-level M2 doesn’t see any feature revisions. The M4+ adds 16-inch alloy wheels, steering mounted controls and remote locking to the package, compared to the M4 trim it replaces. Similarly, the M6+ gains some kit from the erstwhile M8 including 17-inch alloys, a rear parking camera and automatic climate control.
BS6 Mahindra Marazzo rivals
The Mahindra Marazzo is positioned uniquely in the Indian market. The diesel MPV stacks in the gap between the petrol-only Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Rs 7.59-10.13 lakh) on one end, and the Toyota Innova Crysta (Rs 15.66-23.63 lakh) on the other.
