Born of an engineering collaboration between Mahindra Automotive North America (MANA), Detroit and Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) Chennaithe Marazzo was launched today amidst a thunderous applause from the audience at Mahindra’s plant in Nasik, Maharashtra. Pitted directly against the Maruti Ertiga, Honda Mobilio and Tata Hexa, the Marazzo comes at an attractive launch price starting at Rs.9.99 lac (ex-showroom India).

The engine is mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox and while there is no automatic option available currently, Mahindra is keen to plonk in an automatic gradually.
