Mumbai based Mahindra & Mahindra is gearing up to launch a petrol variant of the Marazzo during May this year. The company will, however, launch a BS6 compliant diesel model before the new petrol-powered version of the MPV is introduced.
According to Autocar India, the upcoming Mahindra Marazzomodels will feature a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine from the company's new 'mStallion' range. The new (T-GDi) Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection produced 161bhp and 280Nm of torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
The mStallion series was first unveiled at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2020. This series comprises of T-GDi engines with displacements of 1.2-litre (called the G12), 1.5-litre (called the G15), and 2.0-litre (called the G20).
The new engines feature integrated exhaust manifolds, off-set crankshafts, a 250 bar fuel-injection rail system, and dual-mass flywheels.
The Mahindra Marazzo will become the company's first model to feature the new mStallion G15 engine. The G15 is also expected to be mounted on Mahindra and Ford's in-development midsize SUVs — codenamed S204 and B745, respectively.
Expectations are that the Mahindra Marazzo will be priced to compete with the petrol versions of theMaruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Innova Crysta. Prices for the two models start at Rs 7.59 lakh and 15.36 lakh, respectively. All prices mentioned are ex-showroom (Delhi).
