Rumour: Nissan Magnite to be launched by end-2020

Nissan is gearing up to launch a new sub-4 meter crossover called the Magnite in India. We have learned that it could be launched by the end of this year, around November-December.

The Magnite is based on the CMF-A+ platform, which also underpins the Renault Triber. Nissan has already revealed the concept version of the Magnite. We have also seen patent images of the car.

The SUV features a large octagonal grille that looks similar to what you get on a Datsun. The grille is flanked by slim LED headlamp clusters and L-shaped LED daytime running lights. The car has flared wheel arches with plastic cladding and tail lamp clusters that appear to have been inspired by those on the Renault Triber.

Nissan hasn't revealed any technical details of the Magnite yet, however the car's higher variants could be powered by a 1.0-litre, turbocharged petrol engine, while lower variants might get a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre unit.

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!
