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 tail gate and a dual tone bumper. The Magnite is also set to be the first model in India to sport the new Nissan logo.


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


The Nissan Magnite will be available with two engine options. The first will be the 1.0L Energy series, 3 cylinder 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 cylinder 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.

Nissan Magnite Available on 8 Colours: 

Flare Garnet Red With Onyx Black, 
Vivid Blue With Strom White, Tourmaline Brown onyx Black, Onyx Black,

    The exterior sports a new, refreshed look. Compare it to the old versions of the car and you’ll see Hyundai has come a pretty long way with this one.

    Speaking of the interiors, the changes are subtle yet quite significant. Beige and Black interiors while all Black with red stitching for the Turbo variant make small changes look like they

The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four cylinder petrol  engine churns out 115PS and 144 Nm of torque, a 1.5-litre diesel that churns out 115PS of power and 250Nm of Torque and lastly, a 1.0-litre three cylinder turbo-petrol GDI engine that delivers 120PS of power and 172Nm of torque. The 1.5-litre petrol engine is offered with the choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT while the 1.5-litre diesel gets a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic option. The turbo-petrol engine meanwhile comes with a 7-speed DCT option only.


    Speaking of refreshed updates- Hyundai offers the new 2020 Verna with BlueLink connected car technology that keeps one connected with the car through a smartphone. While it continues to feature ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Hands-free boot opening, a sunroof, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), front parking sensors, safety features such as ABS with EBD, hill start assist, curtain air bags rear parking sensors, and speed alert warning are a part of the package spread across different variants.

    Tata Tiago was first launched in 2016. Since then it has been one of key models in transforming Tata motors images in the market. The BS6 facelift model was launched earlier this year and almost immediately established itself as a favourite entry-level hatchback in India. However, the Tiago had a service schedule of every 6 months or 7500kms; whichever comes earlier. But now, Tata motors extended the service interval of the Tiago to one year or 15,000kms.

    As a result of this, all BS6 Tiago owners can get their cars serviced once a year instead of every six months as before.

    However, it should be noted that the revised service schedule is applicable for the BS6 Tata Tiago only and doesn’t apply for the pre facelifted models.


    The facelifted BS6 Tiago has a standard warranty of 2 years/ 75,000 km, whichever is earlier. An extended warranty is available which is valid upto either 3 years/ 75,000 km or 4years/ 1 L km or 5 years/ 1.25 L km.

    The popular Tata Tiago entry level hatchback comes with only a BS6-compliant 1.2L Revotron 3cylinder petrol engine which produces 86PS of max power and 113Nm of peak torque through either a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox. 

    The BS6 Tiago is priced from ?4.7L to ?6.74L (ex-showroom) and competes against the likes of Maruti Wagon R, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and others in the entry-level hatchback segment.
