Nissan Motor India has announced that the Magnite SUV has garnered 50,000 bookings in the country. Launched in December 2020, the Nissan Magnite has been a hit in the Indian market, and the company has already delivered 10,000 units of the SUV.
Nissan has revealed that 60 percent of the bookings account for the top-spec XV and XV Premium trims. Also, 15 percent of the bookings account for CVT models, and 10 percent of the bookings have been made online. Nissan also stated that the company has received over 2.78 lakh enquiries since the SUV was launched.
The top-spec variants of the Nissan Magnite are loaded with features such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless smartphone connectivity, a 7-inch TFT display for the instrument cluster, a 360-degree camera, cruise control, TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitor) and much more.
The Magnite SUV draws power from a 1-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1-litre turbo-petrol engine. The former produces 71bhp and 96Nm of torque, and the latter is tuned to churn out 99bhp and 160Nm of torque. Nissan offers a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. The turbocharged petrol engine also gets an optional CVT automatic gearbox. The CVT model produces a slightly less torque output of 152Nm.
The Nissan Magnite locks horns with the likes of Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Renault Kiger and the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
