The subcompact SUV is one category that is experiencing a lot excitement especially with the introduction of Hyundai Venue last year and this year followed the arrival of Kia Sonet. Nissan Motor India who has not been in the thick of action for some time now, is all set to introduce its version of the subcompact SUV in the form of Magnite. Has this introduction come in time or is it a bit too late for the Japanese manufacturer to dig in its heelsin the highly competitive segment, we try to answer the question by taking a look, feel and drive of the upcoming SUV.

How is it to look at?

This is not the first time that we are getting to see the Nissan Magnite in flesh. Rather a lot has been said and written about the upcoming SUV especially about the way it looks. Now that we have it right in front of our eyes, one can say that upfront it offers a very muscular design. Though there might be some resemblance with that off Datsun, a brand co-owned by Nissan keeping in mind the front grille. The grille for that matter comes in a dark grey finish with the Nissan logo placed right in the center off it. From a distance it might look great however coming a bit closer one thing is established for certain that its plastic quality is not that great, and the grille feels a bit flimsy.
