Magnite, the not-so-long-ago launched compact SUV from the Nissan brand took the market by storm due to its very competitive pricing and the value which it is offering for its asking price. The Nissan Magnite also achieved a 4-star safety rating in the ASEAN NCAP crash tests conducted in December. In this article, we will discuss what the brand has brought to India with the Magnite in terms of safety and how it will benefit prospect buyers of the Nissan Magnite.
Responding to a question recently put up by a Twitter user ‘Remote T1’, Nissan India confirmed that the Magnite being sold in the country, which is manufactured in Chennai, is the same product that is exported to foreign markets and scored a 4-star safety rating in the ASEAN NCAP test.
