The Nissan Magnite will be offered with 2 petrol engines- B4D 1.0 NA and the HRA0 1.0 Turbo. Both engines offer the same displacement- 999cc.
The 1.0-litre HRA0 Turbo petrol engine of the Magnite will offer a maximum power output of 100 PS and will offer a peak torque of 160 NM. The turbo engine will be available with both 5-speed MT and X-Tronic CVT transmissions. The power with both the transmissions remains the same, however, the CVT trim will offer a lesser torque of 152 Nm.
The turbo engine is expected to be quite refined than the rivals as it borrows the ‘mirror bore cylinder coating’ tech from the iconic Nissan GT-R. This new tech will reduce the resistance inside the engine that improves the combustion resulting in smooth acceleration and better fuel efficiency.
The other standard B4D 1.0 NA engine will manage to offer a maximum power out of 72 PS and offer a peak torque of 96 Nm. The standard engine is offered with a 5-MT alone. The engine is paired to Nissan’s VVT system that offers maximum response at all revs.
The turbo unit of the Magnite is claimed to offer a fuel economy of 20 kmpl with the manual transmission and 17.7 kmpl with the CVT transmission. The standard petrol unit is expected to offer a mileage of 18.75 kmpl.
The Nissan Magnite will feature disc brakes in the front and drum at the rear. The B-SUV also has a decent ground clearance of 205mm.
“The all-new Nissan Magnite embodies our philosophy of Nissan-ness, which stands for empowering people through breakthrough products and technologies. The development emphasizes on creating an effortless and highly enjoyable driving experience, while reducing emissions and offering great mileage – a compelling combination that every car owner can appreciate,” said Rakesh Srivastava, MD, Nissan Motor India.
