      Mahindra to launch Innova rival

      Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd (M&M) plans to launch a vehicle that will compete directly with Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd’s bestseller—Innova.

      “It will be a direct competitor to the (Innova) Crysta,” said a person familiar with M&M’s plan.
      The vehicle will be priced on par with the Innova Crysta, at between Rs 13.73 lakh and Rs 19.63 lakh in Delhi.
      The product has been developed at Mahindra North American Technical Center (MNATC) in Troy, Michigan, and prototypes are now being tested at Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai. The company has built the vehicle as one it can sell around the world but will launch it in India first, the person said.
      The Innova and its predecessor in Toyota’s stable, the Qualis, redefined the so-called multipurpose vehicle, or MPV, market in India. The models, particularly the Innova, were popular with customers looking for large cars to ferry families. They were also popular with taxi fleet operators. Given that, it may not be easy for M&M to break into a segment which is Innova’s stronghold.


      “A lot will depend on the vehicle itself, its refinement and how good it is to drive. If it is as good as Innova, it can be a very good volume driver for Mahindra,” said Anil Sharma, principal analyst at forecaster IHS Markit.



      Significantly, M&M’s new MPV will be powered only by a 1.5-litre diesel engine, which has been developed jointly by the Mumbai-based company and Ssangyong Motor Co., the Korean firm it bought in 2011. A decision related to a petrol mill to go with the vehicle is yet to be taken.



      M&M’s new MPV will hit the market in time for the 2017 festive season, said the person cited in the first instance. The vehicle may also mark the end of the road for the Xylo, which was the original rival to some of the bestselling MPVs of the past decade.

      The Innova rival from Mahendra has been launched today. From the pictures it looks a good alternative to Innova at a lower price point. And it has a much cleaner design than other Mahindras.

      To me its not a Innova Rival by any means. To me it looks like Mahindra will phase Xylo & concentrate on Marazzo fully.

      Toyota's quality & reliability is a tough one for Mahindra to crack and put in the leagues of Innova. Even on the power front Innova with 2.0L 147 bhp is leagues ahead of Mahindra Marazzo 1.5L 120PS. May be we can call this a Ertiga or Chevy Enjoy competitor but price point is a lot higher.

      I said Innova rival, not an Innova beater. There is a difference

      Though 1.5 Litre is smaller than 2.4L (& 2.8L) engine of Innova, i think 120 PS is something what the Xylo (tagging shishirbn for Xylo) had, and should be enough for a MPV. The Innova price starts from where the Marazzo price ends. The interiors and the exterior design look good for a MPV. If the drivablity and ride quality is good, the VFM factor could get Marazzo good numbers. That (VFM) is where our home grown Tata and Mahindra make a case for themselves against the expensive Toyotas and the likes. If it is not, it would loose out to Innova and Ertiga. From the looks of it, it seems to be larger than the Ertiga et al. Will come to know when seen in actual.

      I just hope we have some real competition to kind of monopoly of Innova.

      Still to be mentioned as a Innoval rival it needs a lot of qualities which I think Mahindra doesn't have at this point

      Very difficult with the reliability of Toyota proven here. Cost factor yes the local players may have a ground advantage but when it comes to reliability nothing comes close.

      Looks like a good product. Design is clean, unlike Mahindra. Autocar, Zigwheels, etc saying nice words for them. But, as it sits between innova and Ertiga, both the products are quite famous, Marazzo will have to wrestle heavily for space.

      Not easy to beat Innova's reliability. That car is so good, i recently travelled in a couple of Innovas one done more than a lakh kilometers, just so smooth and comfortable. Interesting to see once the review comes out.
