    a rather popular trend in SUVs that sport large Infotainment screens.

    The refreshed look could appeal to buyers in the premium SUV segment. The facelifted Jeep Compass would compete with MG Hector, Hyundai Creta 2020 Kia Seltos, Skoda Karoq and the Volkswagen T-Roc.

    We also hear that there is also a seven- seater Compass based SUV in the pipeline which is expected to compete with Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4 and Isuzu MU-X but will most likely be introduced early next year.

    Exterior:

    The production-spec Nissan Magnite seems to retain most of the concept’s design elements including the large grille, the Sharp creases, and the funky alloy wheels. It has even the same sculpted bonnet and angular headlights. Since the Magnite was originally meant to be launched as a Datsun, the grille bears resemblance to the other Datsun models.

    The side profile looks muscular with prominent body cladding and large wheel arches which seem to dwarf the 16” wheels. The higher-spec variants also receive a dual-tone roof option, blacked-out pillars, and silver roof rails. At the back, the Magnite sports sharp-looking tail lamps which resemble those on the Triber's, a clean tailgate, and a dual-tone bumper. The Magnite is also set to be the first model in India to sport the new Nissan logo.

    Interior:

    The interior too is quite close to the concept with a large, centrally-mounted 8” touchscreen and layered dashboard with hexagonal AC vents.

    Powertrain:

    The Nissan Magnite will be available with two engine options. The first will be the 1.0L Energy series, 3 cylinders Naturally aspirated engine from the Renault Triber, producing 72PS Power through a 5-speed manual gearbox. The second powertrain will be a new HRA0 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol unit producing around 100PS (97bhp) of power and 160Nm of torque which will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission option as well as an X-TRONIC CVT automatic gearbox. 

    The new HRA0 1.0 3 cylinders turbocharged engine will get mirror bore cylinder coating technology from its legendary sport's car Nissan GT-R which will help to reduce the resistance inside the powertrain and also it will increase the overall efficiency of the engine.

    The XE variant will be available only with the 1.0L naturally aspirated engine.

    Pricing and launch:

    The new Nissan Magnite will be launched with pricing by early December 2020. 

    All-new Nissan Magnite Compact SUV Expected Price will start from 5.5 lakh and the top-spec Turbo Petrol CVT variant will go up to 9.55 Lakh.
