Nissan is working to launch the Magnite in India sometime after Diwali. Last week, we had shared our first impression of the car following its unveiling.

Spoiler alert: The Magnite will be significantly cheaper than some of its popular rivals like Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue.

Exteriors: Nissan Magnite: At a glance

The Nissan Magnite features a bold and striking design, with a huge octagonal grille, a sculpted bonnet, and silvered skid plates.

On the sides, it is flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, 16-inch alloy wheels with black inserts, and squared-off wheel arches.

For lighting, the SUV houses sleek LED headlights, L-shaped LED DRLs, and LED tail lamps.

Fact: Power and performance

While Nissan is yet to share the powertrain details, it will offer the Magnite with two petrol engine options: a 1.0-liter naturally-aspirated unit and a 1.0-liter turbo motor. A manual gearbox would be available as standard while the turbo engine will get a CVT drivetrain.

Interiors: A peek inside the cabin

The Nissan Magnite has a 5-seater cabin with a multifunctional steering wheel, angular AC vents, and automatic climate control.

The car also packs a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment console that offers support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

For the safety of passengers, it has dual airbags, a 360-degree camera, traction control, and ABS with EBD.

Fact: How much will it cost?

As per our sources, the base variant of the upcoming Nissan Magnite will be priced at around Rs. 5.3 lakh (ex-showroom), making it roughly Rs. 1.4 lakh cheaper than the Sonet. In fact, it would be the most affordable compact SUV in the market.
