The name of the cross is still to be announced, Nissan his name is just B-SUV (intrafactory index – EM2). However, the Indian media have long found that the model was called Magnite. In addition, in may the company Nissan has published videotizer novelties, which is scheduled to launch in the next year and a half, so this roller is similar in size car “drove” under the letter M. by the Way, initially, the SUV planned to release under the brand name Datsun, this explains the similarity of the Magnite with a restyled hatch Datsun redi-GO. However, the revived brand has not met expectations Nissan, eliminate it again.
According to preliminary data, Nissan Magnite is built on the platform CMF-A, which is also based mentioned redi-GO hatch Renault Kwid, the Renault compact van Triber and has not been introduced SUV Renault (he is known under the symbol HBC). The length of the cross does not exceed four meters, as evidenced by the photo of the prototype test, posted online last week (the”short stacks” in India based on tax incentives).
Magnet tipped two petrol engines to choose from – three-cylinder “aspirated” 1.0 (72 HP) from Triber and liter the same “turbotron” with a power of about 95 BHP (for Triber this engine is also claimed, it will appear in the future). The Indians report that the base motor comes with a five-speed “mechanics” or robotized transmission, and sorbirovannoe on the CVT. Drive the same in either case, only the front.
New crossover from Nissan was supposed to go on sale this year, but because of the pandemic market entry was postponed until the beginning of 2021-th. Price you can figure out by looking at competitors: for example, the compact Hyundai Venue in India is today worth RS 670 000 (8 900 dollars), and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will cost at least 734 000 rupees (9 $ 700).
After the Magnet is master of India, he is likely to appear in other emerging markets.
