Nissan India has also launched a campaign with the tagline #IgniteYourKarishma. The company advertises that the magnet looks bold from the outside and looks beautiful from the inside. Prior to this teaser video, it was reported that the company had released images of the Nissan Magnate video at the world-class testing center Nissan Tochigi Proving Ground. The popular GT-R and Aria models from Nissan were also tested on the same track.
Inspired by the Nissan Magnite Tiger has a bold and stately attitude. According to pictures released by Nissan, it features a large Humicomb front grille on the front, sleek LED headlamps on both sides, L-shaped LED DRLs and a scuff plate finished in silver.
The SUV features black body cladding at the bottom, wheel arches and black plastic padding on the front, black skid plate and silver garnish, silver door bands, blackout side mirrors, and sporty dual-tone alloy wheels.
It also features LED split tail lights, faux skid plates at the rear, silver-color roof rails, silver lines around the window, and a roof painted in black.

As for the engine options that will be offered in this car, it seems that the 1.0-liter petrol engine can be used in the Nissan Magnite, though no details are known at the moment. The engine is expected to produce a maximum of 71bhp and 96Nm of torque. The same engine is used in the Triber MPV manufactured by Nissan subsidiary Renault.
Nissan Magnite is also reportedly offering the company’s newly developed 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine in top-end variants. This engine is being developed under the HR10 code name. This turbo petrol engine is expected to produce 95bhp of power. It is likely to have six-speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox options.
Following the launch of the Nissan Magnite in the Indian market, it will compete with the highly competitive compact SUV segment from Kia Sonnet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexan, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Ford Ecosport, and Renault.
Nissan Magnite is one of the most eagerly awaited models of Indian compact SUV this year. From the concept stage, the vehicle has been well-hyped in India as well as in many international markets. With the release of Magnite in the domestic market, Nissan India has the potential to achieve huge sales.
