The Nissan Magnite production version was revealed a couple of weeks ago and now the price has been revealed online before its official launch. This new compact SUV is going to be the Make-it or Break-it product for Nissan India. Now we have got the details of the variants and features split-up of the new compact SUV. Here are some clear details on what to expect:
The Magnite will be sold in four variants, namely the XE, XL, XV, and the XV premium. All variants except for the entry-level XE can be ordered with either the 1.0L non-turbo or the turbo petrol engine. Let's take a look at the features on offer:

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.
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 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.
