Nissan Magnite is all set to debut globally on July 16. The much-awaited compact-SUV from the Nissan was first teased before the Auto Expo 2020, earlier this year. Also, Nissan has revealed a few more teasers of the Magnite that reveal a small portion of the front facet. However, the teasers fail to showcase the complete front end of the Magnite. But we always have our in-house rendering specialist – Shoeb R. Kalania to the rescue. Even this time, he has created a life-like render of the upcoming Nissan Magnite.
Based on the teaser image, the rendered face of the Magnite carries an angry character. To start with, it gets a pair of sleek LED headlamps that are further complemented by a set of L-shaped LED DRLs, which stretch all the way down to the lower air dam. It further highlights the toothed design of the lower-most part of the bumper. Notably, this Nissan gets a Datsun-like hexagonal grille in place of Nissan-specific V-Motion grille. The grille here is encompassed by a silver element.
The bonnet of the Magnite gets a lot of curves and creases, giving it a tough in-your-face look. With blackened A-pillars, the roof gets a floating appeal and with chunky roof rails in place, the overall face of the Magnite look quite appealing in rendering, at least. The Magnite will carry a proportionate silhouette to boast of a decent-looking side profile. This way, Nissan will not give it a straight-cut upright rear profile as seen on many of its rivals.
Nissan will most likely plonk a set of 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels on the Magnite to fill its chunky wheel arches. To power the front wheels of the car, Nissan will use the 1.0L HR10 3-pot turbocharged petrol motor that will also be seen on the Renault Kiger. It will put out a peak power output of 100 PS and max torque of 160 Nm. The transmission duties will be performed by a 5-speed MT on the manual trims and by a 5-speed AMT unit on the automatic variants. It is likely to be launched by the beginning of next year to rival the likes of Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza.
