Above All That Drama

What is the Nissan Magnite?
You've seen it in teasers, you've seen it in design renderings and you've even seen it in spy pics. But this is it. This is the production version of the Nissan Magnite and it's a compact SUV with big aspirations. The Magnite not only marks Nissan’s entry into the hotly contested compact SUV segment but is also the Japanese carmaker’s big hope to turn things around in India, so there’s a lot riding on the new model.

Before we get into the finer details of the package, you should know that the Magnite is built on Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A+ platform that also underpins the Triber 7-seater. Also, the Alliance’s Oragadam plant in Tamil Nadu will be the global production base for the Magnite.

Nissan Magnite dimensions and design
Nissan hasn't revealed all dimensions (it will measure under 4,000mm in length) as yet but has disclosed unladen ground clearance to be 205mm and that all versions of the compact SUV will get 16-inch wheels.

In the metal, the Magnite looks quite substantial and makes the right first impression. The well-crafted contours on the bonnet add mass to the front end and there is a link to the larger Nissan Kicks in the headlights, which peel back towards the pillars. Impressively, frontal lighting will comprise full LEDs on top-spec versions – that’s bi-projector LED headlamps, L-shaped LED DRLs and even LED fog lamps at the base of the bumper.

The skid plate runs the width of the bumper and helps give the Magnite ample SUV cred too. The focal point up front, however, is the large octagonal grille. It’s smartly detailed and gets a thick chrome surround but the shape is very Datsun. The back story is that the Magnite was originally intended to be a Datsun compact SUV but will finally come badged as a Nissan.

The Magnite’s side profile is more crossover than upright SUV but you’ll like what you see, especially in this deep, lustrous Flare Garnet Red paint. A contrast roof and pillars add to the effect. The machined alloy wheels (wrapped in 195/60 R16 tyres) look really premium, too, even if the large wheel wells do leave scope to go a size up. Prominent at the sides is the chunky cladding around the wheel arches and at the base of the doors, and it’s also nice to know that the roof rails aren’t just for show but can hold up to 50kg of load. But what really lends a look of robustness to the Magnite are its thick C-pillars and haunches above the rear wheels.

Nissan Magnite launch and price expectation
Bookings for the Magnite will likely commence towards the end of 2020, with a launch expected at the start of 2021. The Magnite will be up against a whole host of compact SUV rivals like the Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Toyota Urban Cruiser, and competition will intensify further when Renault launches its own CMF-A+-based compact SUV next year.
