Nissan Magnite is one of the most sought after cars in India currently
For many months now, Nissan India has been registering sales of less than 1,000 units a month. Magnite is all set to change that. With Nissan Magnite recording over 33k bookings since launch its waiting period has crossed 10 months for select variants in many regions of India.
At such a time, it comes as a surprise when a dealer manages to deliver 36 units of the Magnite in a single day. One of the biggest dealers of Nissan cars in Andhra Pradesh, Kantipudi NISSAN, has managed to deliver 36 Magnite SUVs in 1 day – thus setting a new record of sorts for Nissan dealers in India.
Nissan Magnite marked the company’s foray into the sub compact SUV market in India. Launched in four trims of XE, XL, XV, and XV Premium, the Magnite is priced from a base price of Rs.5.54 to Rs.9.59 lakhs for the top spec variant.
Nissan Magnite Tech Pack will cost buyers an additional Rs.38,698
Nissan has introduced a special Tech Pack on the new SUV. This is optional and is priced at Rs.38,698 and consists of additional high end provisions. The Magnite 2020 Tech Pack includes a wireless charger, air purifier, JBL speakers, LED scuff plate, ambient mood lighting and puddle lamps. However, this Tech Pack can only be had with the top spec variants of XV and XV Premium and once opted for by the buyer, it will be fitted at dealerships along with delivery of the new vehicle.

Nissan Magnite, which comes with over 20 best-in-class and first-in-class features, receives the lowest cost on maintenance in its segment. The company has introduced Nissan Magnite Care.
