Upcoming Nissan Magnite concept SUV seen in new video
Nissan has released a new walkaround video of its next offering, the Nissan Magnite Concept. In this video, Nissan design manager, Takumi Yoneyama, speaks of how his team in Japan designed the Magnite Concept sub-four-metre SUV keeping in mind the needs and preferences of an Indian buyer.
Nissan says that the styling of the Magnite takes inspiration from its strong tradition of SUVs. In practice, the Magnite concept carries an aggressive look with sharply cut angles. The large hexagonal grille and L-shaped DRLs are reminiscent of what we have seen on recent Datsun cars. The slim headlamps, flared bonnet and the noticeable haunches in the bodywork however are reminiscent of the Kicks and other international Nissan models. At the rear, there are few neat touches like the 3D-effect rectangular taillamps and the concave bootlid section. As expected of a concept, there are striking oversized wheels and chunky body cladding all around. Know about the Magnite's interiors here.
The new SUV will be based on the CMF-A platform. These are underpinnings that will be shared with the Renault HBC SUV slated for a debut soon. The CMF-A platform is derived from the Kwid's underpinnings and also finds its way under the Renault Triber MPV. The Nissan SUV is set to debut by the first half of 2021 and should come with a similar set of engines as the Triber. These include a 1.0-litre three-cylinder Naturally aspirated petrol with 72PS and 96 Nm. The new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol revealed at the Auto Expo by Renault can also be expected here, with 100PS and 160Nm.
The sub-four-metre SUV is one of eight new models that the Japanese brand has planned for the Asia, Middle East and India region as part of its Nissan Next revamp plan. The Magnite is expected to launch in production form in India early next year.
