The source article's audience is to the world (rest of India), were kicks is built on the smaller micra platform with 170/180mm ground clearance, hence the data is correct.

This can be the Duster moment for Nissan in India. Looking forward to pricing of Magnite and what Nissan have brought to the table.

Yes, the GLOBAL Nissan Kicks come at a different GC than what you mentioned

Gah! All those people in the photos!

The Magnite looks quite attractive overall. Those teeny weeny foglamps (?) at the bottom look like after-market fitments though.

The global Kicks GC may be reflecting the laden ground clearance. Whereas the 210mm for India is unladen- I am pretty sure of that.

So, is Nissan launching their "make or break" product in December 2020 instead of scheduled January 2021?

May be it's Nissan's game plan, not to allow 3rd gen i-20 to take over market before Magnite launch, hence making it available earlier to lock horn with i-20. Although both belong to different segment but fall in similar price bracket.

Interesting battle ahead. But yes, Nissan needs to uplift their dealer network to stand a chance.

Brown looks excellent! Hope Magnite will bring good numbers for Nissan. Also expecting good export volumes. I won't be surprised if Magnite's export numbers are much higher than the local sales.

The Magnite in brown looks absolutely stunning! However, I have a feeling the interiors are going to be the achilles' heel for Nissan. I *really* hope the interiors look better in person then the low-res photos circulating online.

As a big fan of the Nissan brand (outside India), am so happy they are putting in the effort and research to come up with new products.

The Magnite is stunning for its price class (imo far better than the Venue and marginally better than the Sonet), I had my doubts about the grill but it has come about beautifully in these pictures at least.

I sincerely hope it sells in large numbers, the Indian market needs more players to thrive and a Maruti + Hyundai + Kia monopoly won't bode well.

This, for me, has been one the most attractive designs to have arrived in the sub-4M space after EcoSport. But apart from that, nothing really inspires confidence to go for this really. I am in the market for a sub-4M car by next year. The mind will always be anxious regarding the ownership experience and the long-term reliability of the brand itself.

But, had Toyota launched this, it would have been an instant hit. I certainly would have bought it without any second thoughts, over the Ecosport and the competition. I guess Nissan has to sort itself out before it can take full advantage of products like these. Unfortunate that many like me who are completely smitten by the looks, may still not buy it because of the long term concerns .

It's sad that Nissan has come out with such a well rounded product so late in the game and that too after it's credibility has been tarnished in the market.

The Magnite while not matching the Hyundai siblings in quality is a very well thought out product. The design is spot on I like those muscular haunches on the front and rear fenders. The ergonomics look typically Japanese with everything seemingly at easy reach. I kind of like the stop start button on the center console too. An especially nice touch is the display on the HVAC buttons.

However I would have expected an auto-dimming rear view mirror and the lack of a sunroof is going to hurt them. Also after cool features like 360 degree view, a low rent bonnet release and lack lustre plastics that looked sad in the pics itself is a let down.

The rear seat look much more spacious than that of the Venue or Sonet and that makes it a credible alternative to the Brezza.

I especially liked the dark brown color from Nissan but is it a bit too late in the game?

Drive on,
Shibu

Just one word, beautiful!! especially in this colour. Adding to that it has some aggressive look. Hope this turns Nissan's fortune in India.

If the pricing predictions are true, I think this is a car that has potential to shake up the market. For a price that ranges between that of a A segment and B-segment hatchback, they are offering a proper compact SUV as large as an Ecosport or a Sonet. You could get a top end petrol automatic Magnite for half the price of the top end petrol automatic Sonet! Yes, there is a difference in performance and features, but nowhere near enough to justify double the price! I think this may cause a much needed wake up call for Hyundai and Kia and force them to be more competitive with the pricing of their compact SUVs.

Magnite is a stunner, and they have sorted out the interior also (atleast from videos/pics). If this vehicle cant save Nissan, I am not sure what can.

Hats of to Nissan for trying and not giving up on Indian market yet.

I see this car's Renault counterpart on testing often, it does look slightly smaller than our usual sub 4 meter cars like the Sonet, Ecosport. Just few mm more than Ignis that was driving close-by.
