Nissan has confirmed that its Magnite sub-compact Sports Utility Vehicle will be launched in India on December 2.
Though Nissan hasn't quite revealed the price of the Magnite, industry sources suggest that Japanese carmaker may spice up things and offer the Magnite in the Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh (ex showroom) range.
Magnite comes with an optional HRA0 1.0L engine, which Nissan claims, gives it the best fuel economy in the segment of 20 kmpl. Magnite is also offered with a CVT box and the certified mileage on this is 17.7 kmpl.
The first thing you notice about the Nissan Magnite is bold statement that comes though with the commanding and dominating front chrome grille. Other stand-out features are the L-shaped daytime running lamps and LED fog lamps. The Magnite comes with first-in-segment sleek bi-projector LED headlamps and LED turn indicators. There are 9 body colors, 5 monotone and 4 dual tone are available to suit customer tastes.
It has a ground clearance of 205 mm and has sporty and sharp wide-split signature taillamps. With 60-40 split foldable rear seats for utmost flexibility, it is the most spacious B-SUV, which has a huge ‘couple distance’ (distance between the driver and side passenger) of 700mm + rear knee room of 593mm + rear headroom of 76mm. The front seats are designed to create an open interior space, delivering the spaciousness that one would experience while sitting in the rear, also known as the 'one-class-above' knee room.
In the interior, Nissan claims to offer many segment-first features like a 10-litre glovebox, multiple camera display on the eight-inch infotainment screen, a large footwell area and a tech pack at launch which will bring in wireless charging, ambient lighting and air purifier.
The Nissan Magnite is equipped with safety features such as Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control System, Hill Start Assist, speed sensing door lock, central locking and SRS dual airbag system with pretension & load limiter seatbelt for driver and passenger.
