    Nissan Magnite Summary

    Nissan is entering the B-segment of the Indian car market with the production spec version of the car you see in the pictures- the Magnite. It’s Nissan answer to the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Honda WR-V, Hyundai Venue and the upcoming Kia Sonet.

    On the outside, the Magnite concept gets a large grille with a chrome surround and red highlight, LED headlamps and L-shaped LED DRLs, faux skid plates with silver inserts and chunky wheel arches.  The alloy wheels are dual-tone while the tail lamps are full LED units. We expect much of this larger than life design to be carried over to the production model with biggest change expected to be smaller wheels and projector headlamps (on specific variants) in place of the LED units.

    Not much is known about the cabin but Nissan has revealed that it will get cruise control a touchscreen infotainment system with an 8.0-inch display. We also expect segment standard features like climate control, rear AC vents, driver’s seat height adjustment and a rear arm rest.

    The Renault/Nissan alliance had showcased a 1.0-litre GDi turbo petrol engine at the 2020 Auto Expo and this is expected to be on offer for the Magnite. It produces 100bhp/140N.  Nissan is also expected to offer the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit found in the Renault Triber for the lower spec models.

    Nissan has said that it will launch the car in FY2021 and it is one of the eight models built for individual markets in their Africa, Middle East and India sphere of operations.

    Nissan Magnite Price

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Peppy turbo-petrol powertrain
      • Spacious and feature-loaded cabin
      • Competitive pricing
    • Could be Better
      • High-speed ride could’ve been better
      • Interior quality not on par with the rivals
      • Nissan’s sales network in the country

    Magnite Verdict

    Nissan’s entry into the lucrative sub-four metre SUV segment comes in the form of the Magnite. To take on the well-established rivals, the Magnite offers a modern design packed in a compact dimension, decently spacious cabin with a long list of features and a peppy turbo-petrol motor which is easy to live with. Sure, to keep prices competitive, you have to live with a cabin quality which isn’t on par with its rivals. Another downside is Nissan India’s scanty service network. Keep these niggles aside and the Magnite comes forth as a phenomenal value for money product.

    Magnite Review

    The Nissan Magnite here is an interesting proposition, which is offered in five main trims - XE, XL, XV, XV Premium, XV Premium (O). And, it comes with the option of either a naturally-aspirated petrol or a turbo-petrol engine. The latter is even available with a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) automatic gearbox apart from a five-speed manual option. Upon its launch, with prices starting at Rs 4.99 lakh for the base XE trim-level, it was the most affordable one in its segment. And apart from just pricing, it has its own quirks to stand strong amidst these various models from different manufacturers. We shall now take a look at the fives things to like, and two not to like about the Nissan Magnite.

    Introduction

    The sub-four metre compact SUV trend started with the Ford EcoSport. Then came the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Honda WR-V, and the Toyota Urban Cruiser. And now there's the Nissan Magnite along with its cousin - the Renault Kiger. Ten different carmakers, each of which has a compact SUV in India - easily conforming to the rise in popularity of vehicles in this segment!

    Positives

    1. Explosive/Disparate looks

    Front View

    I'll start off by saying looks are very subjective. So, you may or may not like the appearance of the Magnite, but you will have to appreciate the unique design of this car. It is essentially very different in its kind, and Nissan has managed to give it an exclusive identity. Yes, it's based on the same CMF-A modular platform that the Kiger is based on, under Renault-Nissan's alliance. But, there's enough differentiation between the two, and if I were to choose one, it would definitely be the Magnite for its quirky design!

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    Butch yet sharp looks and that muscular styling gives it that macho appeal. And then there are the eye-catching elements like the slim headlamps, DRLs, fog lamps, alloys, and LED taillamps. Although, if any buyer thinks it's not promising enough, Nissan is offering a plethora of exterior and interior accessories to add to a customer's delight.

    2. Automatic convenience

    As mentioned earlier, this turbo-petrol is also available with a CVT automatic gearbox option, and in its top-spec XV Premium (O) CVT trim, it goes up to Rs 9.45 lakh (ex-showroom). Well, it's quite nice to have this turbo and CVT combo as it offers a very smooth and effortless driving experience. It will easily score over the jerky AMTs that are otherwise available with some other SUVs. It's tuned nicely for city use and with the linear power delivery, feels very smooth. In fact, with this automatic version, you will not have that 'turbo kick' as the car makes progress in a very linear manner. So gaining momentum will never feel abrupt and there's not much of a head-nod as well.

    3. Packs a punch

    If a small car with turbo power excites you for a very peppy performance, you surely will like the turbo Magnite. It does provide quite a sprightly performance with 1,039kg kerb weight and 100bhp at its disposal. Though this 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder unit feels strong post 2,000rpm, it doesn’t feel dead at 1,500rpm and is quite a tractable engine. The roll-on figures of the CVT version in kick-down are commendable with the 20-80kmph completed in 6.22 seconds, and the 40-100kmph run in 8.38 seconds. Also, the manual picks up from 20kmph in third gear without a fuss and even while picking up from 40kmph in fourth gear. This is evident from the timing of 11.08 seconds for the 20-80kmph run and 15.32 seconds for the 40-100kmph acceleration. It clearly comes across as a city-friendly turbo-petrol with a good performance.

    4. Quick off-the-mark

    When we took a look at the 0-100kmph sprint times, we were quite surprised how this one has come out on top. The turbo manual smashed the 0-100kmph sprint record in just 10.28 seconds, while the CVT version accelerated to 100 from standstill in 11.14 seconds. Yes, the manual is a little quicker than the CVT, but as a whole, these figures make the Magnite one of the quickest cars in its segment.

    Right Front Three Quarter

    5. High off-the-ground

    Our fascination with SUVs is now renowned and we love high-riding vehicles to tackle bad roads and clear obstacles. As a result, 16-inch wheels and 205mm of ground clearance are ingredients to a good recipe. And despite it riding tall, its ride and handling balance is quite good. Of course, there's some body roll but it is well contained and the Secura Drive rubber on the tyres grips quite well.

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    However, it’s noteworthy over conditions like broken roads, when the tarmac ends, or with one wheel off the tarmac, this enhanced ground clearance and 195/60 R16 section wheels are truly fantastic for a car of this size. And even if its ride quality is good, do note it will not dismiss bad roads with utter disdain. But you can be sure it will take small bumps and speed breakers in its stride with comfort. Clearing small stones and obstacles without touching the underbody is easily doable.

    Right Front Three Quarter

    Negatives

    1. Not robustly-built

    Dashboard

    I still wish the car gave a strong, durable, and built-to-last feeling. The way things feel at hand, upon being operated, and the quality of materials along with the use of plastics, they definitely aren't cheap but make cost-cutting quite evident. It lacks that rock-solid feel and does remind you of the car being built at a cost. Sure, it's not as average as the Datsun's entry-level cars, but still could have been better when compared to its rivals. The NVH levels are also quite okay, but the three-cylinder thrum can be heard inside the cabin. And it only gets louder post 3,000rpm with some vibrations creeping into the cabin as well.

    Engine Shot

    2. Dealer network is a gamble

    Nissan is strengthening its after-sales service in India with constant efforts like opening new dealerships and part distribution centres. Yet, with a limited network spread across the country, it's still not at par with most of its rivals. Customers today can't stand inconsistent after-sales service quality even if the product is outstanding. So will people be able to look past Nissan's after-sales reputation? Only time will tell. I sincerely hope the Magnite does help in being the game-changer for the carmaker.

    Conclusion

    Right Front Three Quarter

    As a product, the Nissan Magnite has quite nailed it with its looks for a car that comes with a lot of features and functionalities at an affordable price point. When it comes to quality, fit and finish, some things still come across as less-than-perfect to a trained eye. However, for its styling, compact dimensions, peppy engine, features and the price-point at which it has been launched, all of these make this package very compelling.
