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 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 an 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 positioned 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 features
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.
In terms of features, the base M2 continues to be offered with a manual air conditioner with vents for the second and third row passengers, front row arm rest, power windows, central locking, dual airbags, ABS, all-wheel disc brakes, ISOFIX child seat mounts, rear parking sensors, front occupant seatbelt reminder and a high speed alert system.
The M4+ gets equipment including power adjustable wing mirrors, driver’s seat height adjustment, rear wiper-washer, rear defogger and an audio system. Compared to the M4 trim it replaces, it adds 16-inch alloy wheels, steering mounted controls and remote locking to the package.
Mahindra has substituted the M6 and M8 variants from before with a single M6+ trim that gets projector headlamps, fog lamps and a 7-inch touchscreen with on-board navigation. Being the new range-topper, it gains some kit from the erstwhile M8 including 17-inch alloys, a rear parking camera and automatic climate control. However, it does miss out on a few features like leatherette upholstery, a cooled glovebox, cruise control and power folding mirrors that were available on the previous top-spec Marazzo.
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.
