The car scored 39.02 points for adult occupant protection and 16.31 points for child occupant protection. In the Safety Assist category, it scored 15.28 points, for an overall score of 70.60 points.

Nissan has confirmed that the Magnite sold in India has earned 4 stars in crash tests conducted by ASEAN NCAP. The company tweeted the message as a response to a question asking whether the ASEAN NCAP rating was applicable to cars sold in India as well.

Earlier this year, we had reported that the Nissan Magnite had scored a 4-star rating in crash tests conducted by ASEAN NCAP. The car scored 39.02 points for adult occupant protection and 16.31 points for child occupant protection. In the Safety Assist category, it scored 15.28 points, for an overall score of 70.60 points. However, it was unclear whether the car that was tested was the same as the one made and sold in India.

The Nissan Magnite was launched in India on December 2, 2020. It is based on the CMF-A+ platform and comes with safety features such as ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, dual airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control, Hill Start Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

The Magnite is available with two engine options - a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 71 BHP and 96 Nm and a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo-petrol unit that makes 99 BHP and 160 Nm . Both engines are offered with a 5-speed manual transmission. Additionally, it is also be offered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) mated to a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. In the CVT version, the torque has been limited to 152 Nm.
