The one vehicle we’re most excited for is the upcoming Nissan Magnite. This compact SUV will take on the likes of Hyundai Venue and the upcoming Kia Sonet. We know that it will sport features like cruise control, a 360-degree camera, connected features among others. Here’s the first look at the Magnite concept.

The Nissan Magnite concept incorporates Japanese DNA, which includes three values ‘Kabuku’, ‘Sui’ and ‘Inase’. ‘Kabuku’ represents a pioneer and a game-changer, ‘Sui’ stands for purity of purpose and ‘Inase’ denotes dynamic and vibrant energy. It is also designed in Japan keeping in mind the modern Indian customer.

Inside, the Magnite features a digital instrument cluster, a textured dash, push-button start in the centre console, a large infotainment screen, silver accent on the steering wheel, AC vents and the door grab handles. The interiors go well with the Magnite’s aggressive exterior styling. We’ll have to wait until the production-spec variant is unveiled, but we think it’ll be similar to these images. What we do know for certain is that the compact SUV market is abuzz with activity. Stay tuned!
