The Nissan Magnite is a great looking car straight from the factory, with its sharp creases and angular styling. But we think it'll look even better in black, so we went and rendered one. Have a look.
The Nissan Magnite was launched in the Indian auto market in December 2nd, this year with a bang. With prices starting from as low as Rs 4.99 lakh, rival automakers and consumers alike are taking notice. Recently Nissan has revealed it has already received over 15,000 bookings and 150,000 inquiries about the Magnite within a couple of weeks of its launch. Nissan’s compact SUV contender undercuts all its rivals in the segment by around 1 lakh or so. Its pricing is more comparable to hatchbacks like the Maruti Swift instead. Since the Magnite is such a new product, aftermarket modifications will take a bit of time to become popular. But we at IndianAuto have come up with this render of an all-black Nissan Magnite.
As you’ll see in the video above, our digital artist, Shoeb R. Kalania has produced this render of a blacked-out Nissan Magnite. It gets a new shade of gloss black and the chrome sections of the stock car have been blacked-out as well. The factory fitted alloys are replaced with a set of dual-spoke alloys, which are finished in, you guessed it, black. The car gets red pinstripe highlights on the bumper, fog lamp surrounds, door sills, roof rails, and the ORVMs. There’s also red highlighting for a singular grille element as well. The red goes well with the black and gives the Magnite a nice contrast finish. To our eyes, it’s a very stealthy rendition of the Magnite, and the sharp creases will make sure the light catches it in different angles.
In terms of features, The Magnite gets a multi-function steering wheel, the centre-console gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with in-built Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a 7-inch TFT instrument console, and around view monitor display on the screen. It also gets a push-button start/stop system, power windows, automatic AC, rear AC vents, cruise control, etc. The higher models get extra features like a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a rear-seat armrest with 2 cupholders. Nissan is also offering an optional Tech Pack on the top models with even more creature comforts like a wireless charger, high-end speakers from JBL, an air purifier, ambient mood lighting, and puddle lamps.
The new Nissan Magnite comes with two powertrain choices, a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol which makes 83 PS/96 Nm 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 makes figures of 100 PS/160 Nm with the 5-speed manual and 100 PS/152 Nm when paired to the CVT auto. Prices for the new Nissan Magnite range from Rs 4.99 lakh – Rs 9.97 lakh, ex-showroom. Do note that the under Rs 5 lakh sticker price for the base Magnite is only introductory, and prices will increase by Rs 50,000 by January 1, 2021.
