Mahindra Maxximo Mini Van comes with the same 900cc, 25 Bhp- 55 Nm CRDe Diesel Engine which powers its sibling, maxximo pickup. The power and torque figures of the Maxximo van are relatively higher compared to the likes of Tata's Ace Magic which is powered by a diesel engine that produces an output of 16 Bhp-38 Nm. Maxximo will provide a mileage of 20 kmpl.
This little unit sits under the drivers seat and produces 25 bhp. More about the engine in the next post. Some parts have a flimsy look, but paint quality is top-notch. Mahindra aims to sell this vehicle solely in the semi-urban and rural markets.

Mahindra Maxximo Mini Van Reviews
Most parts inside have a rudimentary feel. The driver gets good amount of leg space. The driver seat is upright and does not incline backwards. It was not uncomfortable at all though. Start the 2 cylinder CRDe engine and what comes to life is a mix of audible knocks and a constant whine. The engine is noticeable noisy even at idle.
The Maxximo comes with an Independent Front Suspension and leaf springs at the back. This setup provides an acceptable ride and will be loved by drivers who commute on bad or non-existent rural roads.
