I think overall this is quite a complete car and wearing a nissan badge itself will help its sales (as opposed to Datsun). I am interested in the base model of naturally aspirated petrol as it seems a really good value. Will have to wait for detailed review though.

Looking at all the reviews, the CVT does look like the better choice. The price premium is reasonable (90K) and the engine seems tuned for better low end torque in the CVT with peak torque coming in at 600 rpm lower engine speed. Most reviews talk about how the manual has more turbo lag and how the CVT seems able to dart in and out of gaps in traffic faster etc. Also it does appear that the CVT is best on class, better than most on offer currently in the market. Yes, there is a slight penalty on fuel efficiency and acceleration times, but not too much.

Really !
Itís bad enough Nissan doesnít advertise the Kicks turbo which is a very good package with class leading ride quality and turbo petrol engine!
One of my close friends have one(diesel) and it rides and handles very well and itís efficient too!.
He is sad/ afraid to see the dwindling number of Nissan dealerships in NCR.

Now Magnite with its rumoured killer pricing and competent engine gearbox combo will surely give Nissan the chance to get their act together and assuage the concerns of existing Nissan owners!

I do not see anything different in this car that will help it achieve, let alone sustain, strong volumes. The "killer" pricing is going to be at the expense of quality and safety.

Came across this article from a news feed of mine.

As per the post

Quote:
Nissan Magnite door handle comes out during media drive
Sumant Banerji tweets - The fit & finish & build quality of the car is appalling. In one of the test cars, the inside door latch gave away. In another one, there was perceptible rattle. Not good for a car that's barely done any kilometers on the road. Big doubts on how it will age.
Shut lines of the car isn't consistent either & cost cutting is palpable all across. Even the drag arm of the steering column lies exposed, which not only looks bad but can also be a potential hazard. It is definitely one of the least premium offerings in this segment.

Photos and words credits to their respective owners.

But what appalls me is the sheer mismatch between what Nissan intends to do and what Nissan brings forth. What is this, a curse for Nissan? I am of the opine that, Nissan will wind up operations sooner or later eventually, even if they have a great contender.

Cheers!

I would caution members to take the middle photo of the inside door latch coming off with a large portion of salt. If you look closely, the broken latch has a white scratch line just about .5 cm from the edge - it looks like a sharp instrument like a screw driver has been used to prise it open and while forcing it, the edge of the instrument skid and scratched along the inside edge causing the white line.

My guess - A competitor is scared silly by the Magnite and is using third rate media agencies and/or fanboy clubs at arms length to launch subterfuge here. Nissan should have this investigated and sue for damages.

What an observation . I had to see again after reading your comment. I guess you are right, since when did reviewers start showing the steering rod area? Never seen such detail in anything less than a tbhp review. Suspicious indeed.

Don't think the exposed steering column should be an issue as long as it is an ergonomic one. Have attached footwell shots of Tata Nexon and XUV300 taken from our T-BHP official reviews which also have exposed steering rods. Regarding the other two issues, hope Nissan rectifies those before the car hits the market.

Clean observation. I just hope Nissan does get to see this, if Nissan has anyone lurking in this forum. For all that's said and done, for all that will be said and done, I sincerely hope Nissan gets to stick in our automotive scene for a long time to come. Lo and behold, things being a bit strung up for Nissan, I just hope they learn their lessons and come back with anew.

Cheers!

+ one from my end, here is what Sonet's steering column (from T-bhp official review) looks like. I don't see this as an issue at all.

As a matter of fact, it is exposed in my Triber as well, but has it ever been a safety or ergonomic issue in this last 1 year of ownership, NEVER!! Pic attached.

Also, this kind of one off issues may not really signify bad quality. Just after I took delivery of my TUV300 five years back rear right inner door handle came out. They fixed it immediately and have not had a problem in the last five years.

C-SUV segment is heating up with competition and it is expected that Nissan will keep the pricing competitive, so I guess maybe some attempt to discredit quality.

This definitely looks like a fishy review and should be flagged. Competition and paid scumbags trying to rake up unnecessary controversy. Nissan deserves a chance and the product looks good.
