Red Edition gets red detailing, more equipment
The changes to the Magnite Red Edition are mainly cosmetic. On the outside, the SUV features red accents on the front grille, front bumper cladding, wheel arch and side body cladding. Additionally, the Red Edition also gets body graphics, a tail-door garnish and a prominent Red Edition badge. On the inside, Nissan is offering a dual-tone red and black dashboard, red accents on the door side armrest and the centre console.
The Red Edition also gets additional equipment like wireless charging, ambient lighting and illuminated door sills. Like in the turbo variants, the Red Edition with the turbocharged motor gets active safety features like traction control, brake assist and hill start assist, along with the standard ABS and dual front airbags.
As it's based on the XV trim, it gets equipment like the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, full-digital instrument cluster and a rear-view camera.
There is no mechanical change to the Red Edition, and it can be had with either a 72hp, 1.0-litre NA petrol or a 100hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit, mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT. It is available in white or black single-tone colour options.
The Magnite, with its attractive price and well-equipped higher variants, has seen success in the Indian market. Nissan recently rolled out the 50,000th Magnite from its Oragadam plant near Chennai. The compact SUV is also exported to 15 countries.
In India, the Magnite rivals lower variants of other compact SUVs like the Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, the new Maruti Suzuki Brezza, and also models like the Renault Kiger and Tata Punch.
