Magnite is a pretty easy going city car and offers to commute, zip through traffic or make quick overtakes. You could find some of the noticeable lag before the turbocharger kicks in around 1800 rpm. On the other hand, the motor does have a boost for low-speed driving.

Magnite’s ride quality is solid. It adapts well to bad roads and potholes pretty well. Just covering flawless riding experience through imperfections. On the sharper bumper, the suspension noise is pretty audible.
While if you are observing through their handling front, the Magnite is aiming well on daily basis use. The steering is light and you can just dig in right into the corners. The suspension does not feel that soft while taking through the curves and corners. During the brakes, a slightly vague feeling at the pedal could be enough bite but no feel to the pressure.
It does have standard safety specification over safety font with dual front airbags ABS with EBD. It has rear parking sensors.

Comes with a starting price of between Rs 4.99 lakh – Rs 9.35 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Nissan Magnite does have a very flaunting perception and could be in a better position in comparison to its rivals. Applicable till 31st December, the package comes with some limitations.
