Nissan Magnite is currently one of the most affordable under 4m SUVs on the Indian market and shares its foundations with the recently launched Renault Kiger.
The Magnite marked Nissan’s entry into the ever-growing subcompact SUV segment, and upon its launch, the car became the most affordable car in that segment. However, the Magnite was launched with introductory prices and Nissan continued to increase the price of the SUV in January of this year.
Now the Japanese automaker has raised the price of the car for the second time in three months. The prices of the XV Turbo and XV Turbo CVT variants have been increased by Rs 16,000 each, while the XV Turbo Premium (O) and XV Premium CVT (O) now cost Rs 26,000 more than before.
The XL Turbo and XL Turbo CVT saw the biggest price increase this time around since the prices of both versions were increased by Rs 30,000. Take a look at the new price list by variant of the Nissan Magnite SUV under -4m from March 2021 –
|Variant||New price*||Old price*|
|XE 1.0 liter NA petrol MT||Rs 5.49 lakh||Rs 5.49 lakh|

It should be noted that the price increase only affects the turbo-petrol variants of the Magnite, the prices of the NA petrol variants remain unchanged. While the entry-level XE variant continues to sell for Rs 5.49 lakh, the XV Premium (O) Turbo CVT variant, which goes beyond the range, will now cost you Rs 9.75 lakh (both prices, ex -exhibition room).
Nissan currently offers the Magnite with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder NA gasoline engine, as well as a 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline unit. The first produces 72 PS of power and 96 Nm of torque, while the second produces 100 PS and 160 Nm (152 Nm with CVT).
Transmission options include a 5-speed manual gearbox offered with both engines, while the turbo-gasoline engine can also be fitted with an optional automatic CVT.
