Very soon Nissan will unveil its new compact crossover, which will be named Magnite. Using the available information, we have depicted what the production model will look like.
In the middle of this summer, the eponymous crossover conceptto be targeted primarily at the Indian market. By the way, initially the model was planned to be produced under the Datsun brand, but it did not live up to expectations and will soon be eliminated. Already published official photos of the model in camouflage, spy shots have also appeared earlier. We have gathered all the information together and made an idea about the appearance of the future novelty. The serial crossover will almost completely repeat the concept, but there are a number of differences. Magnite will retain the large grille and shape of the headlights, while the headlights will be simpler. The L-shaped LED daytime running lights will also remain in place, but on the production version they are slightly shorter in height. Also, the lower part of the front bumper is made differently.
The crossover will receive other side mirrors, which are likely to be unified with other models of the brand. The sides are practically unchanged, except for the shape of the chrome molding at the bottom of the doors. The lanterns are the same in shape as the concept, but their filling in the central part will be simpler. The rear bumper is completely different, which will receive a wide silver insert, and additional elements of lighting will be located under it. Finally, the production Magnite will retain the two-tone paint job.
It is expected that the small cross will be built on the CMF-A platform, which is also used by the Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-Go hatchbacks. The length will not exceed four meters, because in India such cars are entitled to benefits. As for the engines, the profile Indian media predicts the crossover with an atmospheric 72-horsepower 1.0 and a turbocharged 95-horsepower engine of the same volume, both 3-cylinder engines. The drive is exclusively front-wheel drive.
The premiere of new items will take place on October 21.
Today in Russia, the most budgetary Nissan crossover is the Terrano. The initial cost is 1,111,000 rubles for a front-wheel drive 114-strong modification 1.6 with “mechanics”. There is also an option with a two-liter 143-horsepower engine, which comes only with four-wheel drive – from 1,275,000 rubles. Modification with “automatic” is 45 thousand more expensive.
By the way, the other day we took a test drive updated Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail.
