The sub-compact SUV segment has become quite popular and every car manufacturer wants to provide something from their arsenal. Nissan has not been doing very well in the Indian market lately but is planning to make a come-back with Nissan Magnite. Only launching a new product won’t solve all the problems but still find out below about Nissan Magnite Spec Comparison against rivals.

The Nissan Magnite by any means does not lead any dimension figure in its segment. Both the Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport with 2600mm of wheelbase are higher than the others.  The Nissan Magnite’s dimension figures are quite similar to the rest of the rivals, thus indicating insufficient space for 3 passengers at the rear.


It also is surprisingly the car with the lowest width in the competition. The Nissan Magnite is based on the Renault Triber’s CMF-A+ platform. It is marginally longer and wider than the Triber sub-4M cross MPV, which is a 7-seater car, whereas the Magnite will come in a 5-seater configuration. For reference, the Renault Triber is 3,990mm long, 1739mm wide, and 1,643mm tall. It sits on a 2,636mm long wheelbase.

The turbocharged engine of the Nissan Magnite in terms of numbers is also no better.  The Mahindra XUV300 is the only petrol car in the segment with no automatic transmission. More about Nissan Magnite Spec Comparison below.
