Probably took a leaf out of Honda’s ‘Man maximum,machine minimum’ ideology. Look at WRV/Jazz for example. They have narrow body compared to all rivals but highest space inside.

Kudos to Nissan for providing essential features like rear wash/wipe from lower models itself. Its a very basic (but essential) feature which old cars(from early 2000) used to have in every variant but somehow Hyundai and likes have made it premium by offering it only in top variants. What’s worse is u can’t really fit it aftermarket like a touchscreen audio or alloy wheels

Squeezing out maximum space inside is an engineering art. The Triber and the Honda WRV come to mind straightaway, just to name a couple.

Nissan seems to have the knack/art of getting this right with the likes of the Sunny and the Terrano. The Terrano, which is very much a compact SUV, actually feels like a Fortuner when seated inside!. Just feels like you are driving a HUGE car. Only when a Fortuner or an Endeavour actually lines up next to you at a signal, when you realise how you have had a 'fundo' feeling until then .

Looking forward to some real life experiences on the Magnite.

Looking at some pictures now i also have a feeling that it might end up looking like Hyundai i20 active rather than a C-SUV. Also i looked up for i20 active's dimensions and both are almost similar.

Wow. When are they expecting cars at showrooms for display and test drive? Did they give any estimate for delivery? Did they also confirm the leaked prices?

Even though the car is not available, they are already offering discounts?
Do you mean that they are offering INR 3000 off on RTO charges?
Actually I also want to book and hence in discussion with YouWe Nissan Okhla. Please help.

Congratulations! Probably you are the first confirmed member here to book a magnite! XVP CVT - the top variant is wise choice considering long ownership period. Did you choose tech pack? Ext. Warranty? Nissan care package (prepaid-service)?
Btw, what color did you chose?

Wow, congrats I could easily understand how vfm proposition it creates.

Im waiting for the car to hit showroom and place a booking for the Turbo XV with an exchange to my Chevy Aveo UVA.

Lateral upgrade!
The magic upgrade /exchange mantra of Team bhp will now be done not with old higher segment cars, but with brand new VFM car like the Magnite.

Even now, I am being influenced by Magnite for lateral upgrade with my 10 year old beat. For past few days I am getting sleepless nights thinking of such upgrade .

The price, features combined with safety is making many to have a strong desire to own one!

This is INR 3000 COMMISSION / bribe / agent charges to get the car registration done at the RTO. They were adamant that this needs to be paid.

They had no clue about any of these additional items except the tech pack which is gonna cost ~20k. The additional details will be shared ~25th Nov. They are getting the display car on 15th and then 2 days later they will show it to the customers. Test drives from ~25th Nov. I am yet to decide on the color.

Exactly, I was out looking for a pre-owned Kicks/Duster, but all where above my budget and I was about to finalize a Terrano and this happened

Still its out of my budget, but i could easily squeeze some money out of the 2008 UVA which none is ready to take it even for free

So i could easily swap and get a XV turbo, only thing i will miss is the rear ac vents (hope there will be some diy )

Actually there is one other - Triber top end offers 4 airbags.

This is the Do or Die situation for Nissan India. Hope this one will bring respectable sales and Nissan will be encouraged to bring some international products like Murano, Qashqai and Rogue to Indian market.
