Nissan has cracked the pricing here. It is aggressive and also very uniformly spaced among variants. The price steps for various engine/transmission type and trim levels is fair, even and proportional to the value and content. It is easy to explain to a prospective customer. They are not trying to do any gimmicks to alter sales distribution among variants through artificial pricing steps.

The XE NA variant is kind of historic IMO. At 4.99 lakhs, this variant provides an SUV with all basic safety features like dual airbags, ABS, EBD, rear parking sensors, plus some nice to have features like all 4 power windows, rear wiper etc. Rear wiper is not offered by Kia in the Sonet except in the highest variants despite being priced 150% more.

It is one of those rare car launches, where you can choose exactly the features and specifications you want and be confident you will pay the fair price and not be penalized for your particular choice of variant.

This pricing is literally like dropping a bomb on the premium hatchbacks and sub-4m crossovers, considering Nissan includes a lot of useful features like rear wash & wipe, deforgger, dual airbags, ABS, EBD, front and rear headrests as standard in all variants while all turbo variants additionally get brake assist, ESP, hill hold control and traction control as standard

Only thing that can hinder them now is their customer reach.

Perfect pricing by Nissan! The Magnite just earned the tag for the most VFM product in the segment from my side. Will be interesting to see the volumes in which Nissan will be able to sell this.
An interesting thing to note here is that it cuts the new i20 on pricing by quite a margin , now I am hopeful that the entire segment gets a re-jig of pricing and Nissan can get a major sales boost from the Magnite.

Fantastic Pricing!

Time and Again, we see the brilliance of Mr. Rakesh Srivastava. Be it the variant distribution, media management and now pricing, it has his stamp all over it! Going by initial feedback, looks like he has successfully weaved his magic yet again!

I remember this GTO post an year back:

Rakesh's personal brand image is so strong that many competitors have called to congratulate Nissan dealers (including me).

We have just witnessed history today.

A sub 4m SUV has been launched under 5 lakh ex-showroom. Have we seen this earlier? I don't think this is going to be broken in near future. This is super aggressive pricing and surely going to upset multiple segments in the market.

With Nissan expanding it's reach across nation backed by this killer pricing, Magnite is going to be a hit product. If this happens, competitors will be compelled to do price correction of their products which will now appear expensive in comparison to Magnite.

In Godfather style I would say "Nissan has offered a price which we can't refuse".

Bang on pricing!

Magnite is a well sorted product, the only major unknown, as of now, being crashworthiness (apart from after sales service, of course).

However, I hope Magnite carves out a sub-segment rather than force other C-SUVs to reduce their prices to compete with it. Because if the latter happens, I'm afraid they may cut corners on intangible stuff (read safety features) in a bid to drop prices (like XUV300 recently did in the name of 'value optimization'- more details in XUV300 thread).

It's just feels so good seeing a manufacturer place the proper premiums for the price of a turbo charged engine over the NA version and more importantly the premium for the CVT transmission over the manual (looking at you Maruti with your ridiculous 1.4L premium for the stone age 4 speed AT).

Congrats to Nissan for carrying the momentum with positive vibes all through the launch. Now only if this car turns out to be safe too (I don't really expect it to) then that would be amazing.

Now this should be the new definition of disruptive pricing. Lets hope this product does really well for Nissan.

Superb pricing Just expecting that Magnite will at least score 3 Stars or more in crash test. Wishful thinking

Hope more people will get into Nissan Showrooms and the Kicks 1.3 may also get some sales boost from now-on.

All the best Nissan.

Wow. This is really good pricing and was needed for Nissan to have a chance. If this does not click, then not sure what will.

The XV seems to be decently specced and VFM at the same time. And CVT carries a 80 k premium, which is more than fair.

I'm not yet convinced that this pricing will make the Magnite a winner Nissan wants it to be. Maybe I'm wrong. Here's why I feel so -
  1. While the base pricing of the 1.0NA is certainly very aggressive - as of now, I don't think this version will sell a lot. A 1.0NA engine has quite a few shortcomings for a car of this size in the real world. Looking at the sales numbers of the Triber - its evident that people know it.
  2. People will go for a 1.0NA in basic hatchback territory more - considering the established brands have good service network etc - which Nissan does not have.
  3. In fact I'm sure the sales teams would also be trained to upsell the turbo & delivery timelines for NA engine will be artificially slow.
  4. Won't be surprised if multiple NA trim variants get discontinued within 1-2 quarters of 2021.
  5. The real USP of this car will be the 1.0 Turbo & the CVT. The difference in pricing with a Brezza varies in the range of around 35K INR to as much as 1 Lakh INR in some variants at max. Will people be swayed by this difference to pick a totally unknown Magnite with minimal service network? Or they'll take a larger EMI and go for the far more established Sonet-Brezza-Nexon?
    Especially since the reviewers are also saying that the cabin fit-finish-feel isn't exactly very premium and robust but more utilitarian with an economy feel.

Killer pricing by Nissan

One thing I want to appreciate them for the most is that, unlike the market leaders, they didn't cheap out on the amount of safety kit offered as standard. 2 Airbags, ABS, EBD, front and rear headrests, rear wash and wipe, rear defogger are offered as standard across all variants. Turbo variants additionally get brake assist, ESP, hill hold control and traction control as standard.

Yes, we don't know the crash ratings yet but at the very least they have offered all the safety features that greatly aid and enhance our driving experience. Commendable!
