Recently Asked User Questions

Q. What's the difference between normal engine and turbo engine of Magnite?
  • Its 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine makes 72PSpower and 96Nm torque and mated to a 5-speed MT gearbox. It delivers a claimed mileage of 18.75 kmpl. On the other hand, new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit can be had with either a 5-speed MT or CVT. It churns out 100PS and 160Nm (152Nm with the CVT gearbox). It delivers 20.0 kmpl and 17.7 kmpl mileage with its manual and CVT variants respectively.
  • The Magnite is offered with two petrol engines. ... The second and more powerful option is a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 100PS/160Nm. This engine too is available with a 5-speed manual transmission. Certain variants also get the option of a CVT, however, the torque figure in that case drops down to 152Nm.
  • Naturally-aspirated internal combustion engines simply lack the bolt on. Turbochargers enable smaller, more efficient engines to compete with the power and torque ratings of much larger engines
Q. Which variant of Magnite is worth to buy?
  • We have a dedicated article for this which we would suggest you to refer for a better understanding of the variants of the car so you could choose one according to your need and budget- Nissan Magnite Variant Explained.
  • XE was the most value for money model when it was offered at Rs. 4.99 lakh till 31st Dec. 2020. Now, as XE price stands revised at Rs. 5.49 lakh, I think XL is the most value for money model at Rs. 5.99 lakh.
  • XE वैरिएंट की 5.49 / है। मुझे लगता है कि इसकी बिक्री 40% कम होगी । जो इस कार को खरीदने के बारे में सोच रहे थे अब पिछे हट रहे है

Q. Can I wait for Nissan Magnite or take Sonet?
  • At its introductory price of Rs 4.99 lakh - Rs 9.35 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Nissan Magnite is a very tempting proposition and takes a different position vs its many rivals. This pricing will be applicable only till 31 December but along with that, this package does have some compromises too. For example, the cabin experience isn’t rich and fitment quality is of a budget grade. While it does get a turbo petrol engine, it isn’t complemented with a driving dynamics package that’s particularly exciting. Of course, Nissan’s sales and service network is also going into revival mode and its rivals have a clear upper hand here. Simply put, if you want the most premium and sophisticated pick from the segment, the Magnite probably isn’t for you. But if you want an SUV that’s spacious, practical, well loaded and comfortable to drive, all delivered at a price tag that’s serious value for money, the Magnite is certainly worth considering. On the other hand, the Sonet is ticking all the right boxes otherwise. It’s delivering on the wow factor with pukka mini-SUV looks, quality interiors and a feature list that’d make you question paying a premium for larger SUVs. It’s being sensible and practical too, with loads of cubby holes and a large boot. You get proper automatics, and the engines on offer cover a wide range of usage. You may compare both cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Kia has service issue with parts unavailable all the time and also Kia is plagued with engine issue. Nissan Magnite has better offing and more feature but costs lesser than Magnite
  • My wife booked XV turbo variant on 22nd December, 2020. Were informed that car will be delivered 6-8 weeks. After months of follow-up, they provided estimated delivery date on 15th Sep 2021. Very pathetic customer service by Nissan

    my evergreen CAr forever even I have Vw polo... it's amazing performance look and speed and disappointed about mileage... same as polo I have groom space and dashboard clearance views.. easier to drive in cities and traffic.. I have used car for 7 years.. I have did only 3 service.. for 47,000kms ... Even its seconds Santro I purchased it runs like two wheeler anywhere in cities.. I have driven karnataka tamilnadu states in my car.. tirupati.. very less Maintainence.. no sensor problems.. but polo I faced many problems once water s done for polo car entire sensors will stop working for changing senor it' costing very high price.. polo users are one who handle their car safely. you can see many polo cars on roads which doesn't have any scratches on cars and they are only one who gives the car on periodic services and service records can be seen on car instrument cluster shows entire things.. Cruz'e control available on polo automatic climate control changes electric mirror steering adjust seat height adjust arm rest cool cabin and good leg grooms and stylish look Aero dynamics are good for performance and stylish.. if sensors are maintained good without falling in water it can be good enough for maintainence... ground clearance s less but use the cars in towns and cities.. village users don't choose the cars.. use traffic less route and junk roads it may hit under chase.. use good roads to improve suspension... gear shifting and steering are quite good n good pickup.. mileage is about 14.7 1200 petrol engine.. better than Swift cars.. polo takes race swift cars easier ... swift is not used by professional business mans.. users don't buy swift cars it's all taxi drivers and travelers using cars.. Indica swift are not so surprised cars for own board users.. many yellow board cars are Swift cars.. so everyone hates swifts Every 6000-7000kms need to service.. spare parts are low strength on Maruti Suzuki.. body quality of swift is very very poor... bolts and nuts fateners are like local parts... see the bolt nuts fasteners in polo car it's heavy and design of nuts and bolts locks becoz it have holding s***p and threading holes... but holding strips for polo are good tightened it cant remove easily by spanners.. it need pneumatic gun to remove the screws in vw polo..

    Its one of the best car's under 7l.If you even take the xe or xl its more than enough to perform.The 1000cc na engine does feel like a 1200cc engine power.If you consider a hatchback or premium hatchback better purchase a magnite.
