Nissan Magnite has finally hit production lines at the company's facility in Chennai. It is winding up for what will be its last leg of its race towards the Indian market. Magnite is Nissan's attempt to make a strong mark in the extremely competitive sub-compact SUV segment. Experts believe that this might be a make-or-break product from the Japanese carmaker in India. It has now been confirmed that the car will be offered in five single-tone colour options as well as three dual-tone shades.
We should mention here that the colour to watch out for is the flare garnet red with onyx black which was what was the dual-tone shade of choice when this was showcased last month. Nissan has revealed that this special coating allows for the shade of red to assume different hues when it is seen from different viewing angles.
The flare garnet red is available in the single-shade option – this list includes sandstone brown, blade silver, onyx black, and storm white.
The options in the dual-tone colour scheme include vivid blue with storm white and pearly white. It will have onyx black, apart from the red and black theme previously mentioned.
As far as the colour options are concerned for a sub-compact SUV, they are quite pertinent as that woo prospective customers, Nissan seems to have the bases covered and they have got the shades absolutely perfect. It is also banking on its striking looks on the outside – there is also a spacious cabin and a rich feature list to make a bang.
Under the hood, the vehicle will be having an HRA0 1.0-litre turbo engine featuring a five-speed manual transmission and X-Tronic CVT gearbox option.
We take a look at the safety kit – it has features such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Traction Control System (TCS), speed-sensing door lock, central locking, and SRS dual airbag system.
