Nissan’s first ever subcompact SUV has landed on Indian shores. The Magnite subcompact SUV has made its global debut in India and it enters a segment which has seen positive growth even in these trying times. The last few months have seen 2 new cars being added to an already long list in the segment and the Nissan Magnite which has just been unveiled globally will be the third new model to be added to that list and yes India will be the first market to get the car. The Magnite is likely to be priced between ₹ 6.5 to ₹ 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom) for this top of the line turbo CVT variant but we’ll get to know once the car launches after Diwali.
What works for the Magnite is that its got the stance that is befitting of an SUV. Many things contribute to that which includes square shaped wheel arches with cladding on them and silver skid plates both on the front and the rear. The car also gets roof rails which according to Nissan can carry weights upto 50 kgs. It gets 16 inch alloys as standard, a ground clearance of 205 mm and the use of black colour on the side-view mirrors, gives the car a different appeal. The big hexagonal grille, is akin to Datsun cars and has a lot of chrome around it. There’s extensive use of chrome on the window line as well that stretches all the way from the front door to the C-pillar.
