Do you know, how frugal is the Nissan Magnite with its 1.0L naturally-aspirated motor? Here's a video that showcases its real-world fuel mileage. Check it out.
Nissan Magnite has managed to bring in the much-needed footfall to the Japanese carmaker’s showroom floors. Within a month from its launch, the Magnite has garnered over 30,000 bookings. It is offered with two engine options – 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol and 1.0L turbocharged petrol. The latter of the two is superior in terms of overall drivability and performance, while the former delivers just adequate power and torque. Thus, it is for those who want a frugal and cheaper trim of the Magnite. According to Nissan, the naturally aspirated motor can deliver an ARAI-claimed fuel efficiency of 18.75 kmpl. But, how many kilometres to a litre can this engine deliver in the real-world scenario remains a question. To find out the answer, we came across a YouTube video from the channel of Amar Daryan.
In the video, the host tests the fuel efficiency of Nissan Magnite’s naturally aspirated trim. He starts by filling the fuel tank of the Magnite to the brim. Meanwhile, he shows that Magnite’s fuel tank can gulp a little over 40 litres of petrol with ease. He then starts to drive the car in city traffic and does so for around 16 kilometres. The host then drives the Nissan Magnite on the highway for roughly 20 kilometres while cruising at a speed of 90 kmph. During this phase, the Magnite shows a mileage of 19.8 kmpl on the multi-information-display. By the time he reaches the fuel bunk again to conclude the test, he has managed to clock 51.3 kilometres on the odometer. This time around, the fuel tank is filled with 2.45 litres of petrol.
With some basic arithmetic calculations, the host reveals that Magnite’s naturally aspirated engine delivered a fuel efficiency of 20.93 kmpl. Well, this is quite a handsome figure for a car of this size. Also, it is pretty clear that if you are in the market to buy a frugal sub-4m compact-SUV, then Nissan Magnite’s naturally-aspirated trim can be a great option. With a starting price of Rs. 5.49 lakh, the Magnite competes with the likes of Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, and Maruti Vitara Brezza.
