The XE trim also gets Rear wiper/defogger, all four power windows, adjustable front and rear headrests as standard, a rarity nowadays.

Variants from XL (Turbo) onwards get Push button start/stop, 60-40 splits seats , Isofix, Rear centre armrest with mobile holder. Also get VDC + Hill start assist+ Traction control+ Hydraulic brake assist+ Hydraulic brake boost (CVT).

The electronics safety features package are turbo specific and will not be available with the NA( Non-Turbo) engine even in XV or XV premium.

The more I look at it the more I feel Mitsubishi designers were behind the styling on this one. Replace the Nissan logo with the three diamonds and you'll notice the old Evo or Outlander front end.

This is brilliant news if true! I couldn't care less about LED or touchscreen and place a lot of weight on rear wash & wipe and headrests. As you rightly pointed out, it is very difficult to get these basic features in our cars nowadays.

And the current fad is that you can get a sunroof even, but no rear wash & wipe. Absolute bonkers!

Kudos to Nissan if they make this happen. I am very much looking forward to driving this one. If they have managed to tune the turbo CVT well, and if this drives decently, the little Nissan will make a great city runabout.

The specifications sheet is out in whatspp group. Going by the pdf design and styling it looks authentic as kicks too had similar styling of pdf.

[ATTACH=Magnite-Spec-Sheet-v1.pdf]2075672[/ATTACH]

The Tech pack has gizmos like wireless charger, air purifier, led sill plates, JBL speakers, puddle lamps and ambient lighting. I would have expected the 360 camera under tech pack to make it more attractive. As per the sheet, this can be only opted in the XV Premium- the top variant. But the feature lists are simple plug-on items, so hopefully it should be done on all variants except the base XE.

As expected the base version is bland, not even 2din system. Nissan would be have quite a lot of this good old 2din system lying with them which is used from the days of 2010 micras and sunny. They should have added the dead stock in XE.

Rear wiper is standard and this is awesome news while the hyundai -kia thinks this as a premium feature!

The majority will go for 3rd XV option as it has most features like 7inch instrument cluster and so many others, offering wonderful ownership experience.

However, VDC (the most preferred safety feature) is available only with turbo variants. The same is with kicks.

Leaving the base XE, Nissan has made magnite well proportioned in just 3 variants with 2 engine and 2 gear box set up, which totals 9 variants. Short and crisp !

Even lesser than Honda Wrv which has 1601mm. Remains to be seen if it's measured with/without roof rails.

Nissan has put everything they have into the Magnite. Going through the specs there is nothing they seem to have left out, barring possibly a sunroof! Very decent specs for the petrol turbo and that smooth CVT is the trump card!
The car weighs about 1000 odd kgs which is decent for its size and POSSIBLY indicates less tinny Datsuness and more Nissan solidness
The only only thing that Nissan needs to do is to get atleast a introductory price that makes everyone's jaw drop. And hold that price for 6 months!

The official web pages are well thought through. Very impressive!

Apart from rear wash wipe or headrests on all variants, Nissan hasn't skimped on other safety aspects too which most other successful manufacturers take it for granted here - like the 195/60R16 wheels, hill hold, traction and dynamic control etc.

https://www.nissan.in/vehicles/new/magnite.html

Here is the inside of the Turbo CVT variants showing the equipment inside.

Only gripe as of now is that some colours like Red or Black is available only on the top variant.

Wow! Rear wash and wipe and adjustable rear headrest in all variants. Then i see that the CVT is actually available from the XL variant onwards (though I am not sure why it's mentioned as 5CVT here instead of just CVT against the other variants..probably a small mistake).

Overall, it seems like a decent package on paper at least. Even their brochure seems to have no errors as such (my baseline is Volkswagen where it seems Team-BHP members have more knowledge on the variant distribution than their marketing team).

Had this been Hyundai or Tata or Kia, people would have been lining up with their bookings already but with Nissan's history, the product has to be something extra ordinary for Nissan to come out of this vicious circle. This could do it for Nissan and I hope it really does.

I like the product on papers but when it will come to putting in 10 big ones I will prefer a Hyundai or Tata or Kia over a Nissan. I just can't trust their after sales & service. One of my acquaintance is struggling to get this Nissan Sunny serviced here at Pune which is comparatively a big city.
