Based on the CMF-A+ platform that also underpins the Renault Triber, the Magnite is offered with two petrol engines. The first is a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, also present in the Triber, that makes 72PS/96Nm. This engine can only be had with a 5-speed manual transmission. The second and more powerful option is a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 100PS/160Nm. This engine too is available with a 5-speed manual transmission. Certain variants also get the option of a CVT, however, the torque figure in that case drops down to 152Nm. While that is an 8Nm difference, you'll be hard pressed to notice it in the real world. There is no option of a diesel engine.

On the safety front, the Magnite comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, three-point seatbelts for four passengers with a pretensioner and force limiter function for the driver and passenger, rear parking sensors and a rear wiper and defogger as standard across all variants. The turbo variants also get safety features such as traction control, vehicle dynamics control, hill start assist and hydraulic brake assist. Those going for the top-of-the-line XV Premium variant will also get a tyre pressure monitoring system.

The Nissan Magnite’s immediate rivals are the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300 and Tata Nexon. Alongside the Vitara Brezza, the Magnite is the only other SUV in the segment that is a petrol-only offering. Renault’s Kiger, which is another upcoming SUV and shares its underpinnings with the Magnite, will also lock horns with the Nissan SUV when it’s launched in early-2021.
