Likely to come by 2020; Marazzo AMT to feature a Magnetti Marelli derived transmission.
Mahindra launched the Marazzo MPV on September 3, 2018 with just one engine and gearbox option. The MPV is available in four variants and two seating configurations. A few days ago, we reported that Mahindra will introduce the Marazzo petrol and automatic variants at a later stage, possibly around 2020 when the BS-VI norms kick in.
We can now confirm that Mahindra has begun work with Magnetti Marelli on development of the Marazzo AMT. The MPV will feature a six-speed AMT gearbox however it is yet to be known whether the Marazzo AMT will be available on the diesel, petrol, or on both engine options.
Currently, the Marazzo is available with a sole 1.5-litre diesel good for 123hp and 300Nm, which delivers 17.3kpl under ARAI test conditions. The Marazzo takes on the likes of the higher variants of the Maruti Ertiga (soon to be replaced with an all-new model), the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Tata Hexa in the Indian market.
