The same plant will serve the domestic and export markets of the new Magnate. Nissan has yet to announce a release date for the new SUV, but it is expected to launch later this month after Diwali 2020. Nissan India also announced that the new Magnate will be powered by two gasoline engines. The first is the 1.0-liter petrol engine currently found in the Renault Triber. The new 1.0-liter turbocharger developed by Renault I, which was unveiled at Auto Expo 2020. The first comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission. Turbo petrol can be selected between a five-speed manual transmission and a CVT automatic transmission.
In terms of variations, the new Nissan Magnate is available in four main trim levels: XE, XL, XV Upper, and XV Premium and is divided into 20 classes depending on additional features and engine and transmission options. The base XE comes standard with 16-inch wheels, sliding plates, functional roof rails, a 3.5-inch LCD display, all-electric windows, and a two-tone interior.
The mid-range LX gets additional features (six speakers, steering wheel audio control, automatic AC and electric adjustment, and foldable ORVM).
The top model XV is also available with a 16-inch diamond alloy, LED daytime running lights (DRL) and fog lights, an 8-inch touchscreen (including wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), and a 7-inch TFT instrument cluster. Voice recognition, flip the camera and start with a button Nissan also offers the top XV Premium model with LED dual projector headlights, cruise control, 360-degree camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and a sporty interior.
Nissan Motor India will do its utmost to make a strong impression on the SUV market with Magnate. It will be the first novelty from the Japanese manufacturer Kicks in January 2019. The upcoming Magnate is critical to the brand’s growth as BSVI emission standards limit Nissan’s own portfolio.
