The base Nissan Magnite XE is one of the most affordable subcompact SUVs you can buy in India currently. Today we came across this particular Magnite XE that gets a thorough overhaul to its exterior and interior.
Upon its launch in December 2020, the Nissan Magnite was the most affordable subcompact SUV in India with an introductory price of Rs 4.99 lakh. Due to an increase in production costs, the starting price has gone up by over Rs 50,000. Even then, the Magnite is one of the value-for-money vehicles in its segment. Compared to its rivals, the Magnite undercuts most of them by around Rs 1 lakh for equivalent trim levels and variants. Its attractive design, feature-loaded models, and affordable price tag mean you should seriously consider the Magnite if you’re planning to buy a subcompact SUV. Today we came across this Magnite XE base trim that gets an exhaustive list of aftermarket modifications and accessories.
The video of this extensively modified Nissan Magnite XE has been uploaded by shah car décor on YouTube. The front-end of the subcompact SUV gets new LED DRLs integrated into the headlights with the grille getting red highlights. The bumper has new silver and red inserts. Over to the side profile, the roof and ORVMs have been finished in a shade of gloss black while the lower door claddings get red and silver highlights. The stock alloys have been replaced with a set of 16-inch dual-tone diamond-cut alloys. The rear-end also gets the same red and silver highlight theme on the bumper and faux diffuser.
Moving to the interior, the owner of this Nissan Magnite has gone for a full red and black dual-tone interior theme. There’s new leather upholstery while most of the dashboard now gets red leather fittings. Additionally, the door levers, handles and the steering wheel gets carbon-fibre finish inserts. There’s a new starlight roof while customizable ambient lighting has been added as well. The stock Magnite XE doesn’t come with an infotainment system, so this owner has fitted a 10.25-inch android touchscreen system which also acts as a display for the reverse parking camera. The steering wheel now gets mounted controls for easier accessibility. Overall, this is a very well done upgrade and one of the most thoroughly modified examples of a Magnite you‘ll come across anytime soon.
Prices for the Nissan Magnite start from Rs 5.59 lakh for the base trim and goes up to Rs 10 lakh for the flagship CVT XV Prm Opt DT variant, ex-showroom. The Nissan Magnite is available with two powertrain choices, a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol which makes 81 PS and 96Nm of peak power and torque figures and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The other choice is a 1.0 litre 3-pot turbo-petrol that makes peak figures of 100 PS/160 Nm with the 5-speed manual and 100 PS/152 Nm when paired to the CVT auto.
