After a number of teasers, design renderings and spy pics, the Nissan Magnite product version was finally revealed on Wednesday. The Magnite marks Nissan’s entry into the highly contested segment of compact SUVs. It will take on established players like the Hyundai Venue and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza along with the relatively new Toyota Urban Cruiser and Kia Sonet.

The Nissan Magnite is a design symphony between the Nissan DNA and classic Japanese engineering.

The all-new Magnite will be powered by a HR10 turbo engine with a mirror bore coating from the legendary GT-R, which will be paired to a Xtronic CVT gearbox with destep control logic. It is built on Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A+ platform, the same one underpinning the Renault Triber 7-seater.

The Magnite gets squared wheel arches with 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and a high 204 millimeters of ground clearance.

On the exterior, the Magnite’s face is flanked with an extremely sleek looking LED bi-projector headlamps, which reminds one of the Nissan Kicks along with LED streak turn indicators, L-shaped LED DRLs and LED fog lamps. While the blackened front grille reminds us of a few other Datsuns in the market.

The rear profile of the Magnite seems quite simple but still manages to grab eyeballs with its small but sleek LED tail lights and the Magnite badge positioned right under the rear wiper. The brake light mounted on the rear spoiler gives it a sporty look.

On the interior, the Nissan has done a great job making it quite different from the previous Nissan cabins. The Magnite gets an eight-inch infotainment screen which offers wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, with six speakers factory fitted. The Magnite gets the first-in-class side camera feed which will be very helpful during parallel parking.
