2018 Mahindra Marazzo MPV: The Shark Inspired Grille takes all the attention in the front of the MPV

Spy pics of the Mahindra Marazzo that we reported last week, gave us an idea of what the MPV will look like once launched. For one, the Marazzo MPV gets LED lamps that share their inspiration with the XUV500, reflecting a Mahindra family design. The LED headlamps are flanked by triangular fog lamps that add a little bit of flavour to the Marrazzo's front end. Although not visible in these images a panoramic rear windshield is bordered by chrome strip at the bottom that gives way to the number plate crevice below it and is flanked by C-shaped LED tail-lamps. Although it is not certain whether these LED taillamps will be a standard fitment or whether they will be offered as an optional extra.

This is what the interiors of the Mahindra Marazzo could look like.  Despite all the new features we are just receiving news that the Mahindra is planning to keep the price of the Marazzo much more competitive than we had expected, reports from the launch suggest that Mahindra could price the Marazzo under the Rs 10 lakh mark for the base variant!  This would put it straight in the ring with the Ertiga, and significantly under the Toyota Innova Crysta. For your reference, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is priced between 6 lakh and 10 lakh, and the Toyota Innova Crysta which is a more premium 14-21 lakh approximately.
