Nissan’s fresh take on the compact SUV segment is loaded with features and wears a killer price tag.
Brilliantly designed, comfy and well-equipped at an incredible price; it’s the best compact SUV for the money.
The compact SUV class has been growing steadily - adding new competitors and going more upmarket, and with this, things have been getting more expensive. And then, in comes the Nissan Magnite to disrupt the party and prove that you can have your cake and eat it too. With a killer starting price of Rs 5.49 lakh, it could easily woo you away from a hatchback, and even the fully loaded automatic (including the optional tech pack) clocks in at just Rs 9.88 lakh. Then there’s the equipment list, which genuinely includes some top-shelf features that are sure to wow customers. And all this would have been for nought if the Magnite simply didn’t function satisfactorily, but even after this exhaustive test, it has left us impressed on almost every front. Yes, we uncovered a few areas where costs seem to have been trimmed, but the long list of pros on offer more than outweighs the few cons. With the Magnite, Nissan truly seems to have nailed its big last shot at redemption, and is once again a brand name that will find its way into car-buying discussions.
