Nissan India introduced the all-new Magnite for a stunner of a price on December 2, 2020. The Nissan Magnite has been launched in India with an introductory price of Rs 4.99 lakh ex-showroom starting price. However, the price is effective till December 31, as it is confirmed to be raised to Rs 5.54 lakh from Jan 2021.
