2021 Nissan Magnite: price change
As we can see in the table above, the prices of all the turbo-petrol variants – manual and automatic – have increase by a uniform Rs 30,000. While all the 1.0-litre naturally aspirated engine equipped variants have remained unchanged in terms of price. This means, the Magnites prices now range from Rs 5.49 – 9.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
It is also worth pointing out that this is not the first time the Magnite has received a price hike. Earlier this year in January, Nissan raised the base trim’s price by Rs 50,000 (from Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 5.49 lakh). Though this hike did not alter the prices of any other trims.

Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Additionally, the turbo-petrol is available with the option of a CVT automatic gearbox (which produces 152Nm of torque - 8Nm less than the manual).

Nissan Magnite rivals
The Nissan Magnite is positioned in the fiercely competitive compact SUV segment where it takes on the Renault Kiger, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
