Nissan Magnite is the talk of the town with its Rs 4.99 lakh starting price. Today, we have some images that make us understand how the sub-compact SUV looks alongside the bigger Hyundai Creta
The Nissan Magnite is currently one of the most trending cars online. The Japanese automaker has blindsided all of its compact SUV rivals with a starting price tag of Rs 4.99 lakh. This is around Rs 1 lakh cheaper than the competition, and you get well-specced mid-level variants for their base models. For a fairer price comparison spec for spec, you actually have to look at the hatchback segment and vehicles like the Maruti Ignis or the Tata Tiago. Deliveries of the Magnite has just started and it already has over 15,000 bookings in less than a month of being on sale. Today we spotted this Magnite in the wild beside a Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks.
As you will see in the pictures, the Nissan Magnite looks to be a similar size of the Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks. Now the Creta sells in a segment higher than the Magnite and is a comparatively bigger car. Its dimensions are a 4.3-metre length, 1.79-metre width, and 1.63-metre height. Compared to this, the Magnite comes in at 3.99 metres long, 1.75-metre width, and a 1.57-metre height. Except for the main difference in length as the Magnite competes in the sub-4-metre segment, it is very close to the Creta in other figures. And looking at the pictures, it isn’t overshadowed in size by the Creta in any way at all. And with the quite considerable gap in prices between the Hyundai and the Magnite, Nissan has done a good job in making the compact SUV look quite imposing.
The Nissan Magnite range starts with XE base variant which is being offered with an introductory price tag of Rs 4.99 lakhs, valid till the end of the year. The Magnite range tops out with the XV Premium which is priced at Rs 9.97 lakh. Do note that all prices are ex-showroom.
You can spec your Nissan Magnite with a 1-litre 3 cylinder N/A petrol which makes 81 PS/96 Nm of peak power and torque figures which is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. If you want more performance though, then you can go for the 1-litre 3-pot turbo-petrol makes figures of 100 PS/160 Nm with the 5-speed manual and 100 PS/ 152Nm when paired to the CVT auto.
