Nissan Magnite has been launched in India at an introductory starting price of Rs. 4.99 lakh with the top variant at Rs. 9.38 lakh. Magnite gets two petrol engine options and there is no diesel on offer. Its 1.0-litre Turbo engine claims to be the star performer and pits out around 97 bhp of power and has 160 Nm of peak torque.
Mated to either a five-speed manual or an X-TRONIC CVT gearbox, Nissan's latest looks at offering a convenient yet peppy drive option in both city as well as highway road conditions. Nissan claims the new HRA0 engine borrows 'mirror bore cylinder coating' technology from its legendary sports car model - Nissan GT-R. This technology helps reducing resistance inside the powertrain. It also aids in cutting weight, improving heat management and combustion, thus improving the overall efficiency of the engine. The Magnite also benefits from a spacious cabin and a high seating position. Its glovebox - at 10 litres - is the largest in the segment.
It is in terms of features that Nissan may have a trump card. Although Magnite does not get a sunroof or ventilated seats - both popular among Indian car buyers, it does put in a vivid and responsive eight-inch infotainment unit. Front, rear and side cameras assist in safe driving while an optional Tech Pack packs in an air purifier, wireless phone charging, ambient lighting and a premium sound system.
