Ground Clearance of Mahindra Marazzo is 165 mm and Innova Crysta is at 167 mm as per new ARAI Rules of calculating Ground Clearance, while of Ertiga as per rules set before the changes


Space: As thats the first preference to have lot of space. You will be pleasantly surprised that Marazzo offers Commendable Space inside the cabin. It has longest footprint in Mahindra Car family and has wheelbase longer than Innova Crysta

Choose in 7 Seater Option - Second Row has Captain Seats which can well slide and recline in easily. Even has Armrest too on 1st Row and 2nd Row Seats.

3rd Row space still in no way can be termed bad. Its reasonable enough for 2 Adults and 1 Kid. Headroom space is generous on 3rd row and with Adjustable Head  Restraints yet with Descent legroom by sliding ahead the 2nd row a bit ahead - once can have usable 3 rows with good space for 6 Adults and 1 Kid or say 4 Well Build Adults on first 2 Rows and 3 Average size adults on 3rd Row

Overall - in cabin space feels lot better spacious than Ertiga and yes on close territory to as what seen in Toyota Innova Crysta.

Basis the pricing as charged of 10 to 14 Lakh - you can be generous enough in space to go with Marazzo if seek more space than Ertiga and yet find Innova a bit expensive

Engine Performance, Drive and Handling: All New 1.5 Litre. 4 Cylinder Diesel Engine with 121 BHP Power and 300 NM Torque in 6 Speed Manual Transmission. This is an altogether new Diesel Engine been developed and Kudos to Mahindra for making it top notch in drive where you seek a car without any Turbo Lag, Engine NVH Levels and a car reasonably sufficient to drive in City and Mid range till 100 Kmph Speed

Yes its not as peppy as what you get Toyota Innova Crysta and no Power Boost Mode. But care for relative light steering and care for relative light clutch against Crysta as a car like handling - Marazzo  can be a good choice. Suspension has taller springs, which may appear bouncy when driven on bad roads

Its Ladder on Frame design and yet Front Wheel Drive and Marazzo overall Engine Performance is satisfactory. Clutch is slight heavier but acceptable as its a Diesel Engine and not as heavy as what is in Innova Crysta

However - 2 shortcomings too - been heavier car its initial 1st gear response does not feel as good in city traffic and second the higher up RPM or at higher speed makes engine Vocal. Expecting Marazzo to be linear in pickup with good response can be expected, but its not a Performance enthusiast car having even relative higher body roll when taking turns on speed

Considering drive and handling response against Ertiga - Marazzo due to no lag feels even better and unlike any other Mahindra Car feels different in way as its designed for city and mid range with light controls

Care for Better Engine Performance - Marazzo is good, but expecting Pep, Pickup, High Speed Stability as what seen in Innova Crysta can feel bit disappointed

Safety: Comes with All 4 Disc Brakes, ABS with EBD and Dual Airbags Safety. Build Feels reasonably Okay as standard in all Model Variants

But - yes some one spending in close to 15 Lakh On road for Marazzo M6 and around 16.5 Lakh On road for M8 can definitely complaint that there was scope of advanced safety like Side and Curtain Airbags, ESP which is missed in Top of Line Variants

Pitched against Innova Crysta then Innova is offered with 7 Airbags in top of Line trim and that makes Innova the Safest Car in segment followed next by Marazzo and then Ertiga

Styling : Although Mahindra call its Shark Inspired Design and car has Projectors in M6 and M8, LED DRL in M8, 16 Inch Alloys in M6 and 17 Inch in M8, Piano Black Finish in M6 and M8 with Touchscreen Infotainment and Digital Instrument Cluster exclusive to M6 and M8

It seem that most of the styling elements and highlight restricted to M6 and M8 Variants. The Entry Variants M2 and M4 even does not come with Chrome Front Grille, no remote central lock and as per update has no provision of remote central lock even as part of accessory in M2 and M4, no Fog Lights, no Piano Black Finish, Steering lacks controls in M6.

So care for Styling - be ready to spend in close to 15 Lakh for M6 and close to 16.5 Lakh On road for Marazzo M8 Model,

Entry Segment Variant just does not feel in as premium or charismatic.

Even the Top End Models also do not have any Push Button Ignition, no Keyless Entry, no Apple car play as of now, no Rear View Camera in M6. Refer Video on Interiors, Exteriors of Marazzo with Review


Mahindra Marazzo Price:Mahindra Marazzo Price 


Is Marazzo Worth Buy over Ertiga, Innova Crysta

Considering Space, Engine Performance and care for Family Spacious car for City and Mid range - Marazzo feels reasonably good

But its not Value proposition basis the steep Price difference in between M2 and M4, M2 and M6 and M2 and M8 -as the features does not justify in the price premium been charged for

Had it been priced Rs 50k lesser for M4 and Rs 1 Lakh lower for M6 and M8 - it could have made Marazzo an excellent Value purchase

But still the MPV is a good upgrade choice over Ertiga and Value Priced over Innova Crysta for Buyers seeking either M2 Base (in Space, Performance against Ertiga) or M8 Top End Variant (against Crysta Base in equally good spacious cabin and much higher up features list).
