The cooled rear glove box of the Triber has been replaced with Rear AC Vents and the base of the Arm Rest. Likewise the parcel tray above the Start-Stop Button incorporates a Wireless Charger in the Magnite, while it is just a shelf in the Triber. Even the Tail Lamp design is an improved and futuristic version of the Triber's tail lamps.

Being a Triber owner myself, I just love what the Magnite looks like inside and out. Maybe I can swap my tail lamps from the ones of the Magnite some time next year, as a 2nd birthday gift for my car.

In these pictures under daylight, interior plastic quality looks much better than what we have seen in unveiling pictures. IMHO, it seems to be of decent quality which is quite adequate at the price point Magnite is going to be launched. Fit and finish also seems good. Now, lets wait for the drive review.

I hope the amount of hype Magnite has created so far will get reflected in sales numbers.

Interior seems decent in these images. Handbrake lever is nicely done in leather with a chrome tip. Most of the touch points seems to be well taken care of with either fabric or leather.

Looks stunning in blue !! I guess, Magnite will have better road presence than it's competition. The front has been designed in such a way that it gives a feeling of a bigger car.

Spotted the Magnite on the road today. Has a very good road presence owing to its bold front and the Led drls. Great job by Nissan i would say.

Waiting for the GNCAP tests of this car. Let's see how it performs there. The Renault-Nissan Alliance CMF-A+ platform, which is sired by the KWID's CMF-A floor, on which the MAGNITE is based, is not exactly known for its peerless safety credentials. Let's wait and see. Fingers crossed.

First walkaround and sneak peek of drive video before embargo lifting. The oxy brown coloured Magnite is looking smokingly hot.

Hyundai and Maruti sell 100 times more cars than Nissan and have the Indian market in their grasp, majorly because of their wide network. Not because their cars are 100 times better.
Nissan + Datsun combined sold 1,100 units in Oct 2020. MG a 2 year entry with a smaller network sold 3.5 times that figure.

The average unit price of N+D would be in the 6L ex showroom mark while MG sells at the 15L +

So at 2.5x the price, with a smaller network and a presence of only 2 years, MG sells far better than N+D

The reason N+D sell so poorly is their absolutely lacking product offerings. The Magnite is attracting so much attention because it is maybe the first time since Nissan came to India, they are launching a competitive product, in line with what the Indian market demands at a price that is compelling.

Nissan Magnite to be launched on December 2, 2020

Nissan has announced that the Magnite crossover will go on sale in India on December 2, 2020.

Nissan Magnite Review-2-3.jpg

The Magnite is based on the CMF-A+ platform, which will be shared with the upcoming Renault Kiger. The crossover will be offered in 8 trim levels. These include the base XE, XL, XV, XV with Tech Pack, XV Premium, XV Premium with Tech Pack, XV Premium (O) and XV Premium (O) with Tech Pack.

The Magnite will come with two engine options. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 71 BHP @ 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm @ 3,500 rpm and a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol unit that makes 99 BHP @ 5,000 rpm and 160 Nm @ 2,800-3,600 rpm. Both engines will be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The Magnite will also be offered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) mated to a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. However, in the CVT version, peak torque has been limited to 152 Nm @ 2,200-4,400 rpm.

The Nissan Magnite embargo is till 7pm today and the reviews from most of the Auto journos would be available then. I do hope that our TBHP mods would have been invited and are able to get their initial review out by then.

Overdrive review for Magnite was available over YouTube for a short while.

Some of the key points
+ Great looks
+ Space and ergonomics
+ Decent Turbo engine (driveability and f.e.)
+ Equipments offered

- Lifeless steering
- High speed manners
- Interior Fit and finish
- Suspension NVH
- Rubber band effect in CVT

A car looks like a bridge between the Espresso/Kwid category and Sonet/Nexon/Brezza category

Seems like this guy couldn't wait till the embargo lift.

The interior doesn't seem that bad considering the VFM proposition.

Almost everything is explained
Gong purely by the sounds in the video, it feels and sounds plasticky. I'm thinking of a Triber class product. This should be for Nexon, Venue etc what Triber is for the Ertiga. Not expecting high grade interiors at the price.

Hoping for good solid engineering underneath and hope it does age well.
