The Nissan Magnite Is All Set To Go On Sale In India Tomorrow

Unofficial Bookings are already underway, with customer test drives commencing on December 2


After a lengthy period between the concept unveil in July and a production-spec unveil back in October, Nissan is all set to launch the Magnite sub-4metre SUV in India tomorrow. The carmaker has already commenced pre-bookings, with customer test drives also starting on December 2, the day of the launch. Almost everything you need to know about the Magnite has been revealed and we’ve already had an initial impression on the Magnite which you can read here. Here’s more information on it in detail:

Bold Stance 

Thankfully, the production-spec Magnite looks very similar to its concept iteration, which translates into one of the sportiest looking SUVs in the segment. Notable highlights include a large Datsun-like front grille, with sleek LED projector headlamps, L-shaped LED DRLs as well as LED fog lamps. Adding to its athletic stance are the aggressive wheel arches with dual-tone 16-inch alloy wheels. It also retains the concept’s swanky looking taillamps and a butch rear bumper.  


You also get the option of five monotone colours: red, white, brown, silver, black and three dual-tone shades: blue/white, red/black, and white/black to choose from.

Loaded To The Brim

The Magnite will be packed with features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with segment-first wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connected car tech, 7-inch digital driver display, climate control, cruise control and steering mounted audio controls. An optional tech pack adds in a JBL sound system, ambient lighting, wireless phone charger, puddle lamps, and an air purifier. Safety isn’t compromised with bits like dual airbags, ABS + EBD, electronic stability control, tyre pressure monitor and a 360-degree camera with rear parking sensors. That said, it does miss out on a sunroof and ventilated seats, which are present in rival models like the Kia Sonet.  


Nissan will offer two petrol engines for the Magnite, the first a 72PS/96Nm 1.0-litre naturally aspirated motor and the other a 100PS/160Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine (152Nm in CVT). Both can be had with a 5-speed manual transmission, with a CVT gearbox exclusive to the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. 

Prices And Variants

Leaks from what seems to be a dealer event reveal that the Magnite could be priced from Rs 5.50 lakh to Rs 9.55 lakh (ex-showroom). If these prices are realistic,  the Magnite could become the most affordable sub-4 metre SUV when it goes on sale. What is confirmed is that the Magnite will be offered in five variants: XE, XL, XV, XV Premium and XV Premium (O).


The Nissan Magnite has a lot riding on its shoulders as it could dictate Nissan’s future in India. It will face stiff competition from the Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
