The Nissan Magnite is an important model for the brand, with the potential of being a game-changer in terms of its future in the market.

Power & Torque

The Nissan Magnite once launched will come powered by two engine options. This includes a 10-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 70bhp at 6250rpm and 96Nm of peak torque at 3500rpm. The engine will further be mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox.

There will also be a more powerful 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine on offer. This engine will come with the option of either a five-speed manual or a six-speed CVT automatic transmission. The engine produces 100bhp and 160Nm of torque when mated with the manual gearbox, while the engine with the CVT transmission churns out 100bhp and 152Nm of peak torque.

Top Speed & Acceleration

Nissan is yet to officially announce the performance figures of the Magnite. However, based on the engine specifications, weight, dimensions and performance of its rivals, we have made some assumptions.

The top-spec Nissan Magnite with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol should be able to reach a top speed of around 150km/h. This figure, however, will be slightly less on the standard 1.0-litre engine offered on the lower variants. In terms of performance, we estimate that the Nissan Magnite should be able to complete a 0 - 100km/h sprint in a little over 12 seconds.

Note: All the above performance and top speed figures mentioned are assumptions at this point. We will update the actual/claimed acceleration and top speed figures as and when officially announced by Nissan India.

Mileage & Fuel Tank Capacity

Nissan has revealed that the 1.0-litre NA petrol-powered Magnite will return a mileage figure of 18.75km/l. The more powerful 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, on the other hand, claims to return fuel efficiency figures of 20km/l and 17.7km/l from its manual and CVT-equipped variants, respectively. All these figures are ARAI-certified and will differ slightly in the real world, depending on a number of external factors.

The Nissan Magnite is said to come with a 40-litre fuel tank capacity, which should give it a maximum range of 800km on a single tank.

Seating Capacity & Boot Space

The new Nissan Magnite is strictly a five-seater compact-SUV. The SUV offers good knee and headroom, with sufficient under-thigh support for all passengers.

In terms of boot space, the Nissan Magnite with all the seats upright offers 336-litres of luggage space. The SUV also comes with the option of folding down the second-row of seats, extending the space to 690-litres.

Overall Dimensions & Turning Radius

Being a sub-4 metre, the dimensions of the new Nissan Magnite is similar to most of its rivals in the segment. Here are the dimensions of the new Nissan Magnite:

  • Length: 3994mm
  • Width: 1758mm
  • Height: 1572mm
  • Wheelbase: 2500mm
  • The turning radius of the new Nissan Magnite at 5-metres is also similar to its other rivals in the segment.

    Ground Clearance & Tyre Size

    The Nissan Magnite offers an excellent ground clearance of 205mm, which is pretty impressive for a compact-SUV model. This should help the Magnite glide over any and all undulations, although such a high ground clearance for a sub-4-metre SUV might have an effect on the driving dynamics.

    The Nissan Magnite offers 16-inch wheels across all variants of the SUV. However, while the lower trims come with 16-inch steel wheels, the top-spec features diamond-cut alloys. Nissan also offers the Magnite with a 15-inch spare wheel.

    In terms of colour options, Nissan will be offering the Magnite with a choice of eight paint schemes: four mono-tone and four dual-tone options. The mono-tone colours include Blade Silver, Sandstone Brown, Onyx Black and Storm White.
