Mahindra Marazzo Car Insurance
Fans of Mahindra & Mahindra had always demanded a compact MUV (Multipurpose Vehicle), which could fit in between the largeness of Bolero and Scorpio, and the sophistication of XUV 300 and 500 series. And with the launch of Marazzo in 2018, Mahindra finally offered the compact SUV (or minivan), which was long-awaited.
Marazzo means shark in a dialect of Spanish, and the vehicle does give a performance like that of a shark: Lightweight, fast, flexible, powerful, and smart. As per NCAP tests, Mahindra Marazzo is right now India’s safest MPV with a 4-star rating.

Mahindra Marazzo Review
Finally, a subcompact MPV from the Mahindra camp, which can give a tough fight to the likes of Toyota Innova Crysta and Suzuki Ertiga in terms of performance and looks, along with price point. A solid build, imposing road presence, and remarkably smooth diesel engine with a 6-speed gearbox place Mahindra Marazzo among the top leagues in the MPV segment.
However, the way some features of Marazzo overlap with Mahindra’s own XUV 500 confuses some hardcore fans of Mahindra, and they are forced to choose between these two. This could have been avoided for better brand loyalty. The 3rd row, when unfolded, can make the boot space small, and the engine bay too is not optimally designed and is rather cramped.
But overall, a near-perfect compact MPV from Mahindra will steal the thunder on the road.
