    Nissan Magnite review, road test
    Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay a great feature to have, but the system works erratically.

    It’s impossible not to be impressed by the equipment the Magnite offers, at this price or otherwise. It’s packed with the likes of LED headlights, fog lights and DRLs, keyless entry and go, a rear washer and wiper (right from the base model), wireless phone charger, power-folding wing mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and auto climate control. But while you’ll find these in some rivals, features that really stand out for this segment are a 360-degree camera, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a tyre pressure monitor and the all-digital colour instruments screen. On the safety front, you’re well taken care of too, with ESP, hill-start assist, brake assist and traction control and ISOFIX child seats mounts, although there are just two airbags on all variants. Features buyers might miss are auto headlamps and wipers, an auto-dimming inside mirror and a sunroof, but these are all non-essentials.

    Useful 360-degree camera; however, quality in low and bright light could have been better.

    There are some quirks though; the wireless smartphone connectivity works erratically, the 360-degree cameras’ display isn’t very clear, and the touchscreen can be a bit slow to react.
