Made-in-India Nissan Magnite is now being exported to different parts of the world outside India. Currently, Nissan is exporting Magnite to Nepal, Indonesia and South Africa. Magnite was launched in December 2020 and can be deemed as the saviour of the brand that was having a tough time in the Indian market.
One of the major markets for Magnite is Nepal where Nissan received 760 bookings within 30 days of the launch in February 2021. Magnite has been a strong contender in the segment in India and the company plans to extend the ‘Made-in-India Global SUV’ to the other markets of the world as well.
How has the road been for Nissan Magnite since the launch?
Magnite has been doing good in the Indian market. The introductory price of ₹4.99 lakhs made it the most budget-friendly compact SUV in the market. The carmaker has received an overwhelming number of sales and bookings for the Magnite since its launch.
The Made-in-India Magnite scored an impressive 4-star rating at the ASEAN NCAP crash testing. It offers a great deal of safety and comfort features.
FYI: Magnite was the first car under 20 lakhs in India to offer a wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
You also get two engine options. Nissan offers a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol that churns out 72hp of power. For those who love more, Nissan offers a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol churning out 100hp.
As for the transmission, you get a 5-speed manual as standard. You also get a CVT option with the turbo-petrol mill. Will you prefer Magnite instead of buying a hatchback at the same price? Do let us know in the comments section below.
