      Leading the pack with its wide-body with proper hardtop design, the spacious Maxximo Mini Van comes with an ergonomically designed and well-cushioned seats that up the comfort factor. This, along with the Maxximo Independent Front Suspension system raises the bar of riding in comfort. With its robust monocoque chassis, constructed with bigger box-sections for greater rigidity, and booster-assisted Twin LSPV brakes, the Mini Van is also one of the safest products in its category. Performance meets economy with Mahindra’s proven C2 CRDe diesel technology which pumps out 25 HP power and still gives 18 kilometres to the litre. All of this is packaged in what is clearly the most stylish offering in this segment.

      Speaking at the launch of the Maxximo Mini Van, Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive & Farm Equipment Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, “A product from Mahindra’s state-of-the-art Chakan plant, the Maxximo Mini Van is the perfect embodiment of Mahindra’s philosophy of “Rise”.

      According to Mr. Rajesh Jejurikar, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., “Last year, the market size of the minivan segment in India was over 1.4 lac vehicles which are increasingly emerging as the choice of both the entry-level contract carriage and the stage carriage segment. We expect the Maxximo Mini Van to be nothing less than a game-changer in the market. It will also change the face of the entry-level contract carriage segment, as the ideal vehicle for tour & travel operators, schools and other institutions.”

      Is it the cloth in the central section instead of the glass? If that's the case then I don't think any private vehicle owner would be interested. They can target the commercial segment.

      Is it cheaper, pricier or the same cost as that of TATA Magic? Unless it's cheaper than TATA Magic by say 10-20%, I don't see as to why somebody would go for this vehicle rather than prefering TATA Magic. I don't think in Taxi Segment, the owners are bothered by specs etc..

      In that case I think Maximo will struggle to compete with Magic in the share auto segment.

      Good thing about this vehicle is that the birds eye view photograph does not show any panel in between the driver and front passenger seat where these share cab guys can seat an extra passenger.

      But Mahindra claims longer service intervals - engine life of 2L km against Magic's 1L km, and a lot of other gizmos that reduce mechanical wear and tear and hence their overhaul/replacement periodically
