The wait is finally over. The all-new Nissan Magnite India launch is scheduled for tomorrow. The latest compact SUV from the Japanese company will compete with the likes of the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, and Mahindra XUV300.
The Nissan Magnite has already garnered quite some attention in the Indian market ever since it was unveiled earlier this year. It is considered to be one of the best-looking cars in the segment thanks to the dynamic styling that Nissan has opted for. Apart from the attractive design, the Magnite has also been a topic of conversation because of its expected pricing. If speculations are to be believed, the Nissan Magnite price would start from as low as INR 5.50 lakh* making it more affordable than most of its rivals. For reference, the Hyundai Venue price starts at INR 6.75 lakh* and, on the other hand, the base price of the Toyota Urban Cruiser is INR 8.40 lakh*.
