I have seen the spike across all the states. Just after the first reviews came out, I went to their website to see how many dealers are there in the southern 4 states. Felt that even though they have a good product, this may fail due to lack of sales and service centres, a few days back.

AP: Earlier, I was shocked to see only Tirupati and Vijayawada. Checked again today and am completely surprised to see Guntur, Rajahmundry, 2 new showrooms and a service centre added in Visakhapatnam.

Karnataka: Saw only 2 showrooms in Bangalore for the entire state of KA a few days back. Today, again surprised to see quite a few showrooms added in Bangalore and 3 more cities in KA.

Situation in Kerala and Tamil Nadu is much much better. Telangana though has only 2 dealerships still, only in Hyderabad but again multiple branches are now opened by the existing two dealerships.

So the management is quickly adding up showrooms and making sure that no stone is left unturned before they announce the prices. Disappointment from prospective customers of not finding a nearest dealer is the last thing they want after having a competitive product.

Go to advanced search and select the state.

Nissan have done a great job in designing the exteriors and the interiors of the Magnite. IMO this is one of the best designs I have seen under <15 lacs segment in India. The exteriors are very sharp and appealing especially in brown shade, other cars in its category are now looking bit pale read boring. However I don’t like the over load of chrome around the radiator grills.

The controls on the center fascia are tilted 5 degrees towards the driver, this is a feature generally seen in high end cars. The engine and especially the CVT combo looks promising, based on the various reviews out there.

Hope Nissan now gives a good service assurance pack to instill long term trust in their product.

Regarding the point on expanding service network. I am not sure why Nissan cannot share the existing Renault’s service network ? Both Renault and Nissan are in a alliance for long time. They have products with shared platforms and it make sense to share service also.

Its sad that one cant fit the brilliant looking 17" alloys of the kicks on the Magnite due to to 4 vs 5 hole design. For some reason the magnite's stock alloy looks are not growing despite looking at them in several videos.

Hello ,
Its sad to note there are no dealers in Pune. Called up Nissan and they confirmed same. Do not know how Nissan will service Pune in that case. The dealer in Navi Mumbai is not responding too on the phone .


Fed up waiting for the Sonet want to check out the Magnite as one of the options. Its been 2 months and no clarity on the delivery time frames.
Thanks-

'Maha' comparison of all the 4m csuvs by motoroctane. 1+ hrs of detailed analysis though I somewhat feel the idea was to make Magnite look half a segment lower than the rest. Paid by rival companies to counter the expected price shock by Nissan? Interesting times ahead !

seems like not paid by the competitor, but Nissan India didn't paid them like the Korean's.

The most laughable part is when he talks a lot about the bad parts about the magnite and talks none for the Korean cousins.

At the end, never mentioned one single word about the safety offerings what Magnite does. but all other vehicles are value for money except Magnite

Few days ahead of the launch of Magnite, Nissan India has announced a new after-sales service initiative called as Nissan Service Hub to smoothen the ownership experience.

This includes:
- Doorstep car pick up and drop for service and repairs
- Transparent billing
- Guarantee of 100 percent genuine parts

Coming from a Kicks 1.3 owner. Car is absolutely fantastic but after sales is dreadful.
Could you please share a ownership review? Also, Is there any Nissan Kicks Petrol 1.5NA BS6 owner in the group? Would like to know whether it is worth considering?

Just got a call from the sales executive. The car has reached the showroom in Thrissur, Kerala. They got only MT Turbo XV Premium, not the CVT variant.

Nisaan is improving its footprint nationwide with 30 new service stations and 20 new showrooms. This is in tandem with Nissan Next strategy to invest here for sustainable growth.

Quote:
“Nissan India’s focus is onto improving customers connectivity by providing a seamless journey through these company-owned platforms. We are adapting and adopting the changes in the marketplace to strengthen Nissan’s commitment to the Indian customer on product and service assurances,” said Sinan Ozkok, President, Nissan Motor India.

“With India gradually becoming a more strategic base for value-added services, Nissan’s new and improved initiatives will underscore our desire to give customers a hassle-free, safe, and satisfying sales and service process that is enhanced by a comprehensive digital ecosystem for discerning customers,” said Rakesh Srivastava, MD, Nissan Motor India.
Seems Nissan will go all guns blazing this time to support Magnite. They are in process of improving digital services, conveniences and customer connect. Hope their sincere effort will be paid off.

This is a good news. As per up to 2-3 months before, there were I guess single digit dealerships of nissan across entire Rajasthan. More than the enthusiasts, dealers had totally lost hope of getting their invested money back. Maniye looks like a promising product! I wish it turns the fortunes of Nissan in India.
