It gets mono-form seats for enhanced comfort and Nissan promises the rear seats will have rich cushioning.

Nissan’s design approach was based on the art of sculpting and not just drawing lines on paper. The design team sculpted a solid and dynamic feel by carving a shape from a big, overhanging body. It follows the core of Japanese sense and aesthetic by extracting pure dynamism and shedding the unnecessary, Takumi Yoneyama, Design Manager, Nissan Motor Corporation, said.

The Nissan Magnite Concept is designed in Japan while keeping in mind the requirements and aspirations of the Indian customers. The front section and the grill frame feature a vertical motion to enhance rigidness. In contrast, very sleek and sharp LED Headlamps and L-shape Daytime running light create a strong impression, Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said.
