Looks like Nissan has done really well in using the Kwid derived platform for multiple products. Kwid, Triber, Magnite. The interior parts are similar to those on the Triber as per some reviews. This is good because replacements will be cheaper and easily available.
It is commendable of Nissan to launch a 7 lakh car that's getting compared to the Venue and Brezza. Nissan products have never been unreliable and after Toyota, it is perhaps the second most recognizable Japanese brand in other markets. Hopefully this car will bring them more volumes in India and attract the buyers from the hatchback/compact sedan category as well.

They didnít launch a car for enthusiasts in India till now, with the extremely expensive GT-R (does it sell at all?). Their overseas models like the Rogue, Altima, Maxima (used to have a great V6) and the iconic 370Z are great cars to drive, compared to appliances like the RAV4, CRV and Camry.

For the army brats on this forum, Nissan does bring back fond memories of the 1-Ton trucks and the legendary Jonga.
The company had a great brand. They just squandered it with a sad product portfolio.

Nissan seem to be trying something different - Virtual Showrooms. This is what MG tried in Bangalore. MG's virtual showroom closed down partially since it was in a place with low footfall.

Nissan have setup something else on Brigade Road Bangalore, at the junction of McGrath Road. Spotted it today but was driving hence could not take a picture.

Hello ,
Replied Yes .

Feel its not that they want to exit , but their actions suggest they are unable to put up a decent show . The Magnite will be on sale shortly and in spite of being a "make or break " model for Nissan, , the dealer presence is missing in important cities which have a potential to bring in nos . Viz - Pune etc . Other states also have a similar thin dealer presence .

Thanks-

I am a Nissan owner and even the largest showroom
Shahwar Nissan has stopped functioning in Bangalore .My Terrano is around 7 years old now not run much as I was away. If the Magnite doesn't take off don't know how long Nissan can manage. No dealer seems to have confidence to take up their franchise. My conundrum is to how long should I hold on to the car.

It depends on if you change your cars often. I felt the Terrano to be a very reliable and long lasting vehicle. Since it also shares parts with the duster, parts might not be difficult to procure.

The only thing newer cars bring to the table these days are fancy features and gizmos, most of which you can get done at an aftermarket shop.

But whether this is enough, we have to watch and see and hope Nissan is able to lower the waiting periods as customers may jump ship as new cSUVs from Renault and Tata are to be launched.

But nonetheless good news for existing Nissan owners.
