It does look stunning and modern, looks fresh especially when compared to the Ecosport etc. Also, the long features list guarantees a decent number in sales every month. But, the all black interiors do not look good, In fact, they look cheap even when comared to hyundai/kia.

Unless one discovers an alternate universe, Nissan Magnite wiping off Maruti Suzuki Swift is not going to happen. It is the highest dispatched car in the month of September this year, and has been ruling the roost of compact hatchbacks since its inception in 2005-6. Only Maruti Suzuki can kill its own product by stopping production. No other manufacturer is going to do it.
Nissan India have to do several things as a company to get any decent sale of over 1500-2000 units per month , forget the 5000-10000+ sales for its competitors.

The booking for Magnite will commence towards the end of 2020 and deliveries expected early 2021. The price range is estimated to start at Rs 5.3 lakh for the lower end and 7.5 lakh for the fully loaded turbo cvt top-end as per article from Hindu Metro plus Chennai edition dated 28 Oct, 2020.

In my personal view, Magnite will have a starting price of 5.99 lakhs and the top end Dual tone turbo with cvt and tech pack would be priced at 9.75 lakhs.

I do not think it will be that easy to breathe down the SWIFT's neck. It's not solely the pricing and sales experience but the overall user / owner "feel" of the product. That low slung stance, the super - comfy front seats, the "flick - of - the - wrist" gearshift action, the eager turn-in, the sharp part throttle response and the raspy induction note - all come together to make the Swift what it is. Agreed the steering calibration is a dodo but then we can't win all.

And then the crown jewel which is the SWIFT's Suzuki K-12 four cylinder gasoline engine.

To those who love to drive and to those who do not and view driving as a mere commute from point A to point B, the Suzuki K-12 will not disappoint either of them.
The smoothness, the "revv-ability", the reliability and the fuel efficiency of the powertrain is truly impressive and dare i say , top of the heap , in the 1.2Litre engine's segment in India.
From tootling around at city speeds in traffic, to red-lining it on open highways, the K-12 was; is; and will remain a joy to drive.
This Jekyll and Hyde character is so strong that once you get hooked to it, you mentally tend to benchmark this powertrain against others. (And that is precisely what Peugeot - Citroen is doing, benchmarking their "yet to be launched" 1.2L with the K-12)

Compared to the K-12; the 3-cylinder , the 1-litre that powers the KWID and the Triber and now which will power the Magnite, (albeit with a turbo), will have a tough time to establish its credentials. And against all parameters: smoothness, low - end, mid - end, top - end, refinement, revv-ability, reliability and fuel efficiency.

Sincerely hope that Magnite turns out to be a worthy competitor. Let's wait & watch.

Thanks for sharing this information. 6k booking within one week of unveil looks promising for Nissan. If "Morning shows the day" holds true, then Magnite can bring some much needed volumes and hold the fort for Nissan in India.

So finally Nissan is speeding things up, if that's true. Wonder what's keeping them from making it official. Even the Hyundai i20 bookings are open now with launch slated on Nov 5. Yes both belong to different body types but may fall in the same price band and Nissan should take it as a threat.

This indeed is a promising car from exterior looks atleast. The brown shade looks great on this, infact better than the launch "red". It has a different elegance. While I feel Nissan should have made the interior a bit more jazzy, but this seems to be a well built car.

Good pricing will surely attract a town customers. Can this get the numbers Nissan needs, time will tell.
