Nissan Magnite SUV base variant modified to look like top-end variant

Nissan Magnite launched in the Indian market in 2020 and changed the fate of Nissan as a brand in India. It was a game changer product which helped Nissan come back in the game in India. The main attraction of Magnite was that it was sold as an SUV and was priced quite competitively. The introductory prices of Magnite were very attractive and the top-end variant costed under Rs 10 lakh, ex-showroom. Several videos of aftermarket accessories and modifications for Nissan Magnite are now available in the market. We have featured some of them on our website and here we have another video where a base model has been modified to look like top-end version.

The video has been uploaded by MR Cars on their YouTube channel. The video starts with vlogger talking about the accessories that are installed outside.
