Nissan India is betting big on the Magnite as the segment it competes in is a hotly contested one. The new sub-compact-SUV is slated to launch on December 2 and will go on to rival chartbusters like Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza. To have an upper hand in the competition, Nissan is planning to launch the Magnite at a competitive price tag, which means prices of the base model could end up starting just north of Rs 5 lakh (ex-showroom).

With the aggressive starting price of, say, Rs 5.5 lakh, Nissan Magnite will have a huge advantage over other rivals in its class, including Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and Toyota Urban Cruiser. This should help Nissan India revive its business in the local car market. Also, it may be noted that the Magnite will be joined by its mechanical twin Renaut Kiger next year.
