"The start of production of the all-new Nissan Magnite is a proud moment for all of us. With an array of first-in-class and best-in-segment features, each grade walk has been curated to meet the aspirations of the discerning Indian customer."
Complying with Nissan’s philosophy of continuously innovating to enrich experience, the Japanese automaker’s well-known technologies are offered across the trims of the Magnite.
