The upcoming Nissan Magnite SUV will have a crossover-like silhouette, and get dual-tone body colors. It will also sport a chrome-covered octagonal grille and a muscular bonnet with sculpted lines. On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by thick blackened wheel arches, claddings, and alloy wheels wrapped in off-road tires. For lighting, there will be stretched LED headlamps with L-shaped DRLs.
A peek inside the cabin
Not much is known about the interiors of the upcoming Nissan Magnite SUV. However, it should get a luxurious cabin with automatic climate control, and a multifunctional power steering wheel with buttons mounted on it. For connectivity, a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for connected car technology is also likely. There should be multiple airbags and a 360-degree parking camera for safety.
