2020 Nissan Magnite: Four Important Mantras!

#1. Stylish New Looks

Nissan continues to emphasize on modern design. Honestly, this is where other compact SUVs like Ford EcoSport or Hyundai Venue fail. While the competition is reasonably good-looking, it doesn’t come close with the modern design offered by Nissan Magnite.

Surely, Nissan Magnite gives off an outstanding appeal with a crossover stance. Every other part of it is modern and stylish! However, please remember that the new design has been speculated through a digital rendering based on the teaser images.

#2. New Petrol Engine

Nissan Magnite is expected to come in two different engine configurations: 1.0L BR10 Petrol Engine and a new 1.0L HR10 Turbo-Petrol Engine.

Talking about the 1.0L Petrol engine, it is expected to be powered by a 999cc 3-cylinder BR10 engine which can generate a max power of 72HP and max torque of 96Nm.

Interestingly, it is the same engine as the one in Renault Triber. Likewise, the 1.0L Turbo-Petrol engine is also expected to be powered by a 999cc HR10 engine which can generate a max torque of 95Nm.

It might come mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or CVT automatic transmission. Interestingly, there is a rumor for optional AMT offerings. However, the diesel engine option will not be offered.

#3. Segment-First Features

Nissan Magnite might come with LED lighting, Dual-tone Paint Scheme, Faux Skid Plates, Alloys Wheels, along with the segment-first 360-degree camera.

Furthermore, it also might come with power steering, multifunction steering wheel, semi-digital instrument cluster, climate control system, and infotainment system (with Andriod Auto and Apple CarPlay).

Details are a little scarce, but we will get to see more information in the future.

#4. Affordable Pricing

Finally, affordable pricing.

As you may already know, Hyundai Venue offers a reasonable compact SUV experience at an affordable price. So, you should expect the Nissan Magnite to follows the same path.

Since Nissan Magnite has an upper hand in the design department, it has to nail the pricing to be viable competition to Hyundai Venue. According to the rumored pricing, it is well underway to be just that.
