The sub-4 meter compact SUV is a highly competitive segment, especially in India. One of the manufacturer who plans to enter this segment now is Nissan. They had globally unveiled the concept of their upcoming sub-4 meter compact SUV Magnite last month and now, they have officially released interior pictures of the Magnite concept SUV. The Magnite is a sub-4 meter compact SUV that when launched will compete with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue,Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the soon-to-be launched Kia Sonet.
Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said,
The Nissan Magnite concept is an evolutionary leap in Nissan’s SUV history. Not only the exterior, but also the interiors exude premium-ness, sophistication and roominess. These core elements of design philosophy will be succeeded to the production model which is under development, coupled with superior technology on-board to be a game-changer in its segment.
The interior as mentioned above looks very premium for a car of this segment. The production version may have a different looking cabin but some of the element will surely be retained. The images released by Nissan shows a cabin that gets a red and black dual tone theme. This goes well with the exterior colour combination of the car.
The Magnite concept gets leatherette black seats with red stitching and red inserts at places. The dashboard gets a honeycomb design and the whole centre console including the touchscreen infotainment screen in slightly tilted towards the driver. It shows a push button start switch on the centre console too. The AC vents, doors handles gets a brushed aluminium finish that gives it a premium look.
The steering wheel itself looks good and number of control can also be seen on it. Instrument cluster seen in Magnite concept is fully digital and the AC control switches are similar to the one that we have seen in some other Nissan cars. The Nissan Concept looks bold from the outside and premium from inside. Nissan is also expected to launch the car with number of segment first features to have have a hold in the market. Nissan Magnite is likely to be powered by couple of petrol engines only: the 1.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine generating 72 Ps and 96 Nm of torque, and the 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine generating 95 PS of power mated to a CVT gearbox.
