The turbocharged petrol engine offered with the Nissan Magnite employs GT-R inspired technology. The SUV is offered with a 1.0-litre NA and turbo petrol mill.
A few months back, Nissan launched its most affordable product in the Indian market named Magnite. It is also the second most affordable car in the sub-4-meter SUV space. In the Indian market, it rivals the likes of Renault Kiger, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300 and so on. It is popular among the buyers for its modern looks, decently equipped cabin and affordable price tag.
The Nissan SUV is powered by a 1.0-litre NA petrol and a 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline unit. The former puts out 71 Bhp of power and 96 Nm of peak torque, while the latter is capable of shredding out power and torque outputs of 99 Bhp and 160 Nm. Transmission duties are done by either a 6-speed MT or a CVT. The turbocharged petrol engine of the SUV features “mirror bore cylinder coating” technology. This technology is offered with the company’s supercar Nissan GT-R. This feature is claimed to reduce resistance inside the power plant, reduce weight and enhance heat management as well as combustion. This simply means that the turbo-petrol unit offered in Nissan Magnite is much more reliable and efficient. The same powertrain options are offered with Renault Kiger as well.
In other news, last month, Nissan announced a price hike across the Nissan and Datsun products offered in the Indian market, which came into effect early this month. This is the third price hike for Nissan Magnite since its launch in December 2020. The prices of the SUV has been increased by Rs 9,000 to Rs 33,000 depending upon the trim. As per the price hike, the prices of the base 1.0-litre NA variants of the SUV increased up by Rs 33,000. On the other hand, the prices of the turbocharged trims have been hiked up by Rs 20,000. Back in March 2021, the carmaker increased the prices of all turbo-petrol variants by Rs 30,000. Overall, the prices of turbo-petrol trims have been increased by Rs 50,000.
