Nissan Magnite Records 15,000 Bookings In 15 Days, Waiting Period Extends To 6 Months

The all-new 2021 Nissan Magnite was launched just earlier this month (December 2, to be precise). Given the immense anticipation for this small crossover, quite a few of us were looking forward to its progress. And it seems like the Japanese automaker’s prayers are being answered. Just recently, Nissan noted that the Magnite had recorded 15,000 bookings in just 15 days of its launch in India. In fact, within only 5 days of its launch, there were already 5,000 bookings for this car. Available in at least 4 distinct variants – XE, XL, XV, and XV Premium – the Nissan Magnite has an introductory price starting at Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

In India, the Nissan Magnite goes up against some really well-established nameplates. These include the likes of the Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and Hyundai Venue. Upon its official launch, the upcoming Renault Kiger will also be locking horns with the Nissan crossover. However, none of these cars can match the ultra-low pricing of the Magnite. But do keep in mind that the sensational introductory pricing will end on December 31. Still, I doubt the revised prices will make the Nissan Magnite unattainable. Customers of the Magnite will get a comprehensive warranty coverage of 2 years/50,000 km as standard. Moreover, higher variants of the Magnite feature Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), and Traction Control System (TCS).

The Magnite’s equipment list also includes several modern items such as keyless entry with push-button start, LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy rims, electronically-adjustable & closing wing mirrors, and automatic climate control. An 8-inch infotainment touchscreen system further complements these with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, cruise control, and a surround-view camera system. On top of all that, buyers can opt for the dealer-fitted Technology Package. This ropes in fancier features like a wireless charging pad, air purifier, ambient LED lighting and a JBL sound system. If you are the type of buyer that wants a little excitement in driving, the HRA0 turbo-petrol motor should be the one to go for.

The engine in question is a puny 1.0-liter three-cylinder unit. It puts out 98hp and 160Nm and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or an X-tronic CVT. However, do note that the CVT version of this turbo-petrol engine is rated at 152Nm of torque. There is also a naturally-aspirated three-popper, but that makes only 71hp and 96Nm of twisting force. Also, it too can be had with either the manual or CVT gearbox. While Nissan has not mentioned which variants of the Magnite sold the most, the longest waiting period is for the entry-level XE. Meanwhile, the most popular variants earlier were the XV and XV Premium.
