Nissan India launched their all-new compact SUV Magnite in the market last year. The sub-4 meter SUV quickly became popular among buyers for various reasons. One of the main reason behind its popularity is its price. When launched, it was the most affordable compact SUV in the segment. Even the fully loaded version with decent number of features costs under Rs 10 lakh, ex-showroom. The SUV became so popular that now there is long waiting period on the SUV depending upon the variant you choose. It competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport and recently launched Renault Kiger in the market. Aftermarket accessories for Nissan Magnite have already started arriving in the market and here we have one such video where a base XE variant of Magnite has been modified into a top-end version.

The video has been uploaded by shah car decor on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger shows all the changes or modification that are done to the SUV. Starting with the front grille, it gets red accents which gives it a different and sporty look. Similar red and silver accents can be seen at different spots on the car. The  lower part of the front bumper and the silver skid plate also gets the red accent. The headlamps now gets aftermarket LED DRL which also acts as turn indicator.

Moving to the side profile, the roof has been completely blacked along with the ORVMs. Base variant gets turn indicators on the side fender. The light has been replaced with an LED unit with a chrome garnish around it. There are aftermarket puddle lamps and the side skirts get red and silver accents.
