Read below to learn more about why you should buy the new Nissan Magnite.
What’s good about it?
Nissan Magnite is aggressively priced against its competitors. The Magnite offers a choice between two petrol engine options – a 1.0-litre B4D and a 1.0-litre HRAO Turbo. The compact SUV offers segment-first features such as the X-Tronic CVT, a seven-inch TFT advanced drive-assist display, and around view monitor. The Nissan Magnite also comes with several best in class features such as five-metre turning radius, ample space between two front seats (couple seat distance), rear-seat knee room, driver visibility angle, and more.
What’s not so good?
The body colour options are variant-specific. A majority of the colour options are limited to the top-spec XV and the XV Premium variants. While the features like Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Traction Control System (TCS), and Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) are limited to the Turbo variant options. Moreover, NissanConnect with 50+ features and Smartwatch Connectivity is optional only on the XV Premium variant.
Best variant to buy?
For car buyers seeking the most affordable option in the compact SUV segment, the Magnite XE is a good option. However, we recommend the second to top XV variant in either of the two engine options in manual transmission or CVT option. As for customers keen on distinctive cosmetic highlights, the top-spec XV Premium variant would be the right pick.
