Just a few days ago, Nissan announced that the Magnite has crossed 10,000 production milestone in India. However, demand for the Magnite has been much greater than that. Last month itself, Nissan revealed that they have received over 40,000 bookings for the Magnite in just three months. Given the fantastic value proposition, the Magnite was quick to become one of the most popular offerings in the sub-compact SUV space. Naturally, an overwhelming demand has led to a rather long waiting period, which extends up to seven months in certain cities. Nissan, however, say that they are operating at full pace to reduce waiting periods.

The Nissan Magnite is available with two petrol engine options. There's a 72hp, 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 100hp 1.0L turbo-petrol engine. Now these are not class leading numbers but the 1.0L turbo-petrol engine does a fine job in hauling the Magnite around pretty swiftly indeed. The base 1.0L engine solely comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the turbo-petrol engine additionally also gets the option of a CVT automatic gearbox.
