Nissan’s Bold Move: Unveiling Five New Models, Including Magnite Facelift

In a strategic move to tap into the rapidly expanding automotive market in India, Nissan is gearing up to introduce at least five new models. Currently offering only the Magnite sub-4-meter compact SUV, Nissan’s upcoming lineup includes a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), two SUVs, and an entry-level electric vehicle (EV).

All About Nissan’s Move

The Magnite, launched in December 2020, has gained popularity in the sub-4-meter compact SUV segment, maintaining consistent monthly sales. However, there is a notable sales gap compared to top performers like the Tata Nexon, Maruti Brezza, and Hyundai Venue.

Nissan is actively developing a facelift version of the Magnite, slated for a 2024 release. The updated Magnite will continue to emphasize its strengths, including dynamic styling, robust performance, and competitive pricing. Additionally, the company is working on a left-hand drive variant of the Magnite to access new export markets.

A new SUV, based on the latest-generation Duster, is in the pipeline. The Duster made its global debut recently and is expected to hit the Indian market in 2025. Nissan’s version of the Duster-based SUV is also scheduled for a 2025 launch. Both vehicles will share the new CMF-B platform and will be manufactured at the same facility in Chennai, with several common exterior and interior features.

Building on the Dacia Bigster concept introduced in 2021, Nissan is developing its version of the Bigster SUV, envisioned as a three-row SUV. Positioned to compete with models like the Tata Safari and Hyundai Alcazar, this offering will further diversify Nissan’s SUV lineup.

Nissan is also venturing into the three-row compact MPV segment with a rebadged version of the Renault Triber MPV. Manufactured at the Chennai facility, this MPV will be positioned below the Magnite, catering to mass-market customers with an affordable price point. Positioned as a budget-friendly alternative to popular MPVs like the Maruti Ertiga and Kia Carens, Nissan’s Triber-based MPV aims to provide practical transportation without unnecessary frills.

Acknowledging the growing demand in the entry-level EV segment, Nissan, along with Renault, is developing a new entry-level hatchback based on the CMF-AEV platform. This global electric hatchback is part of a collaborative effort, with both Renault and Nissan offering their versions.

In addition to these models, sightings of the pre-facelift Nissan X-Trail undergoing testing in India hint at a possible introduction via the Completely Built-Up (CBU) route. Positioned to compete with models like the Volkswagen Tiguan, Hyundai Tucson, and Citroen C5, the fate of the X-Trail’s launch in India remains uncertain.
