The Nissan Magnite subcompact SUV concept was unveiled a few weeks ago. It is undoubtedly a concept with bold design and looks contemporary too. Nissan shed some more light on the design philosophies that helped shape the Magnite concept. The Nissan Magnite has been designed with three Japanese values that are Kabuku, Sui and Inase. In Japanese speak, Kabuku means pioneer and a game-changer, Sui stands for purity of purpose and Inase means energy which is dynamic and vibrant. And the photos of the Magnite so far, do convey the themes on which it was designed and built. The Magnite was designed by Nissan's global design team but incorporated suggestions and insight by the Indian team from Nissan Design Studio in Chennai.

Recently, Nissan released the photographs of the interior of the Magnite concept and it is in complete contrast with the exterior. The interior design takes a minimalist approach and is nicely done. The dashboard looks clutter-free with a 3D honeycomb structure finish, while the trapezoidal air vents do look different. The official images also reveal a dual-tone black and red theme across the cabin while also highlighting the space.


The Nissan Magnite subcompact SUV will be launched in India in early 2021. It will go up against the likes of the Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser.
