By: | Updated: October 21, 2020 2:32:23 pm

The new Nissan Magnite compact SUV will be revealed in production form today. The virtual unveil event happens at 12.45pm today. Nissan had showcased the concept form some months ago. This is then going to be the event wherein Nissan will discuss about the SUV’s launch, perhaps export and might release a feature list too. Speaking of which, we believe, the SUV will have an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It will also come with all the bells and whistles one will want including a 360-degree parking camera. There could also be a sunroof on the top-end models. Nissan has likely started trial production of the SUV and prototypes are being tested near Chennai. A naturally aspirated as well as turbo petrol engine is expected with the Magnite. It is likely that there will be manual and auto transmissions. Keep watching this blog and share with your friends too.

    Nissan Magnite variants

    Not much is known as of now but we assume there will be around eight of them. They will spread between a naturally aspirated engine (borrowed from Triber) and a turbo petrol (all-new). Manual as well as CVT/AMT will be on offer too. 

    12:06 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Will Nissan be increasing its dealerships

    Given the current situation, it all looks bleak. However, we assume that Nissan India will want to push sales of this car and hence will aggressively market it as well.

    Small details of the Nissan Magnite

    These are small observations we found out on the test mules that have been spotted. This includes the fuel filler cap on the right hand side, Triber-like LED tail lights, 16-inch wheels, LED DRLs amongst others.

    Safety for the Nissan Magnite?

    The Nissan Magnite, like new-age Datsuns will get dual-airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors and speed warning chime. The top-end variants might also get two additional airbags though we have to wait for an official confirmation on this. 

    11:17 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    What is the Nissan Magnite expected price in India?

    The Magnite expected price is around Rs 6-9 lakh. This will encompass a wide variety of options including engine as well as transmissions. 

    11:09 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Will the interiors be also like a Datsun?

    No, it seems the Nissan magic wand has been used both for outside and inside. While this SUV is expected to be on the affordable side of things, there is nothing that speaks about it. The concept car interior looked really plush and with fewer buttons. 

    10:59 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Doesn't it look more like the Datsun Go Cross?

    Yes, the concept looks very much like a Datsun. In fact, Nissan did confirm that this model started life as a Datsun but was then pulled to the other side. But we like what we are looking at. 

    10:49 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Platform of the Nissan Magnite?

    It is going to be the CMF-A+ platform. This one also underpins the Duster and is also expected to be the base for the Renault Kiger. The latter is an upcoming B-SUV from Renault and will go up against the Magnite as well. 

    10:43 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Where will the Nissan Magnite be made?

    It is a made-in-India product but designed in Japan with inputs from Indian designers. We liked the concept's looks and cant wait to see the final production model. You too can. Today. 

    10:32 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Who does the Nissan Magnite compete with?

    There are a lot of cars. It includes the Kia Sonet, Honda WR-V, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport. All these are established players and sell in good numbers each month.

    10:16 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    What is the Nissan Magnite?

    It is a sub-4m SUV that Nissan India has developed specifically for our market. This is the company's do-or-die model as a lot depends on it. The sub-4m space is where usually all the action is and the Magnite has its work cut out. 

    10:11 (IST)21 Oct 2020
    Wasn't the Magnite shown a few months ago?

    Yes, it was. But this time they are going to show the production model. From a concept to a production-spec, there are usually changes. Depending on the manufacturer, it could be a lot or just minor tinkering. What do you think the Magnite production model will be like?
