Mahindra Marazzo's infotainment system will now support smartphone connectivity through Apple CarPlay as well. Mahindra & Mahindra today announced that Marazzo infotainment system has been updated for Apple iPhone users. Apple CarPlay offers easy access to phone calls, music & Siri Search by seamlessly connecting the user’s Apple iPhone with the infotainment system and automatically organises useful information such as phone contacts and call logs from the user’s iPhone into a simple user interface that appears on the infotainment system display.
With the introduction of Apple CarPlay, the Marazzo becomes even more desirable for customers who wish to stay connected, Veejay Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing – Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said.
The inclusion of Apple CarPlay bolsters Marazzo’s already-strong suite of connectivity features that include Android Auto, GPS-enabled Navigation, Mahindra’s Bluesense App and Emergency Call function, he added.
Mahindra Marazzo was launched in September this year at an introductory price of Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India). The Marazzo comes with four variants - M2, M4, M6, and M8. It marks Mahindra's entry in the premium MPV segment in India with a fresh design that Mahindra says has been inspired by a shark.
