The Magnite will come in five variants: XE, XL, XV, XV Premium, and XV Premium (O). It will be loaded with a bunch of segment-first features such as a 360-degree camera, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and JBL sound system. Safety features on offer will include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors. For a detailed look at the variant-wise features, head here.

Unlike a few of its rivals that feature both petrol and diesel engines, the Magnite will be a petrol-only model. It will be offered with either a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine from the Triber (72PS/96Nm) or a new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit. While the former will be paired to a 5-speed manual only, the latter will come mated to either a 5-speed MT or CVT. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine produces up to 100PS and 152Nm with the CVT whereas the torque output of the MT-equipped variants stands at 160Nm. The Magnite will be the only sub-4m SUV to feature a CVT gearbox. Here’s a look at the variant-wise engine-gearbox combo that will be on offer:
