On 16th July’20 Nissan took the covers off of its much-awaited sub-compact SUV Magnite in concept form. The car, once officially launched in production form, will take on Vitara Brezza, Venue, XUV 300, Eco Sports, Nexon & Kia’s upcoming Sonet in a highly competitive segment.
The concept version of Magnite sports an imposing front grille, sleek head light units, eye-catchy inverted boomerang-shaped DRLs, floating back roofline, svelte LED tail lights and large wheel arches. The car sits on dual-tone alloys.
While engine details have not yet been revealed, Nissan has already said it will follow the legacy of its elder siblings in terms of engineering capabilities. A feature-packed premium cabin is an almost certainty considering the stiff competition it will have to fend off once officially launched.
Nissan has confirmed an India launch of the production version of Magnite in second half of FY 2020-21. The company highlighted that Magnite would be able to fill the needs of Indian buyers and could script its comeback.
“Magnite will transform the way we drive and way we live in India. It will bring back the growth for us in the country,” said Ashwini Gupta, COO at Nissan Motor Corp, during a presentation event for the showcasing of Magnite concept.
