Colin-on-Cars – Nissan Magnite compact SUV joins the fray

Nissan has thrown its proverbial hat into the compact SUV ring with the introduction of the Magnite that comes with a high level of standard technology.

“Our market is bold, self-driven with go-for-it attitudes aligning to what the Nissan Magnite embodies. We are excited to finally have the Nissan Magnite on our South African shores and we cannot wait for you to experience it for yourself,” says Stefan Haasbroek, Nissan South Africa Marketing Director. 

It features latest technology as a part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM), Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are powered, driven, and integrated into society. This includes an 8-inch full flash touch screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Up front, it has sleek headlamps with lightsaber-style turn indicators, while its L-shape LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and dominating front grille is unlike any other design in the B-SUV segment.

The all-new Nissan Magnite is also equipped with an Around View Monitor (AVM), which gives the driver a virtual bird’s eye view from above the vehicle.

With high strength and impact absorbing efficient body structure, the Magnite is equipped with safety features such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Start Assist (HSA), speed sensing door lock, central locking and SRS dual crash bag system with pretension and load limiter seatbelt for driver and passenger.

All derivatives are powered by the HRA0 1,0-litre turbo-charged engine driving through the Nissan X-Tronic CVT transmission.
