THE SUV REVOLUTION IS HERE

A bold future awaits you in the new Nissan Magnite, its strong lines and dynamic design will turn heads everywhere you go. No matter where you want to go, you’ll get there in style. Get in and take control. Designed to make a big impression and engineered with class-leading technology, it’s going to capture the hearts, minds and of course eyes, on South Africa’s roads.

UNDENIABLE STAND-OUT ATTITUDE

 

The All-New Nissan Magnite SUV has been confirmed for South Africa, with an estimated launch date sometime within the first quarter of 2021.

With its powerful performance and striking good looks, the Nissan Magnite is sure to make waves in the South African SUV market and rock the world of all who get behind its wheel. The Magnite includes some of the most advanced technologies ever built into an SUV of this price point (final Nissan Magnite Price to be confirmed at launch) and will come standard with safety, comfort, convenience and performance features which would typically only be found in vehicles priced at a much higher price point.

With a name that combines the words “magnetic” and “ignite”, this Affordable SUV will both attract new fans to the Nissan brand while setting SUV lovers heart rates soaring. As Nissan’s first sub-4-meter SUV in South Africa, the Magnite is perfectly suited for the urban adventures our cities offer. It’s also no slouch on the open road either and is both a great Family SUV for those who need an economical option for city traffic but also a safe and secure SUV for those who enjoy long (or short) distance family holiday.

The Magnite features sleek, full LED headlights as well as L-shaped daytime running lights. The Magnite also wears the new Nissan logo. Also note the rugged plastic cladding around the wheel arches and side skirts which implies that this new model will be able to cope with some gravel travel which is common in India and indeed South Africa too.

As for the interior, the overall design is very minimalist with very few buttons present as a result of an 8-inch horizontal infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is fitted and also provides access to other key vehicle information. A first-in-class 7-inch thin-film-transistor instrument cluster is also fitted. Other key features include a wireless phone charger, JBL sound system and a 360-degree camera.

As for what powers the Magnite, Nissan has confirmed that its new SUV will be fitted with an all-new 1.0-litre turbopetrol engine that’s claimed to be “one of the most powerful in its class”, but Nissan, however, has not yet divulged official outputs but we suspect outputs of either 74 kW and 160 Nm or 86 kW and 170 Nm. This new engine will be mated with a 5-speed manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
