Nissan Magnite Review – South Africa
Nissan’s eagerly awaited compact SUV the Magnite is here, and oh boy was it worth the wait! This is a compact SUV which has been specifically designed and built for developing markets such as South Africa and India and in this Nissan Magnite Review, you’ll quickly realise that it is a vehicle which is very well equipped to take on some of its main competitors such as the Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport.
What’s To Love About The Magnite
From its impressive (and eye-catching) style to its modern levels of comfort, safety and convenience features, the New Nissan Magnite is seriously good value for money. Not only does it compete with its competitors in the compact SUV class on a feature-for-feature basis, but with its incredible Pricing for the Nissan Magnite in South Africa, it is a solid choice for families who are looking for a quality SUV at an affordable price.
Nissan Magnite Design and Styling:
Simply put, this is a vehicle that looks the part of a quality SUV! From its tall stance and generous ground clearance to its chunky wheel arches and impressive 16-inch wheels, this is an affordable Nissan SUV which is going to change the way people view the Nissan brand in South Africa. It has that classic SUV silhouette and thanks to its well-sculpted lines and large rear spoiler it looks like a much more upmarket vehicle than many of its closest rivals. Add to this an impressive grill with dagger-like headlights and there is a menacing air about the Magnite than in our opinion has been missing in this class of vehicle until now.
The Nissan Magnite Build Platform:
Built on the Renault-Nissan alliance’s CMF-A+ platform, the Magnite is a wide build vehicle that is both robust and reliable. It offers great stability thanks to its front suspension arm which is complemented by a new trailing arm setup at the rear. Because of its 205mm of ground clearance, there’s also a new anti-roll bar which further enhances the stability of the Magnite’s performance.
Drive Performance of the Magnite:
The Magnite’s suspension setup is on the firm side, which means that it has excellent straight-line stability and it works well at higher speeds. It also has an impressive braking ability which is an excellent plus for a family-focused vehicle. Its manoeuvrability at city speeds is also excellent, and in fact, the Magnite feels truly at home in the urban environment and this shows in its driving mannerisms.
Nissan Magnite Space and Comfort:
There is plenty of space and legroom on the inside of the Magnite and Nissan has done an outstanding job of packaging the cabin with state of the art features. The front seats are comfortable and it’s easy to find a comfortable driving position which offers great all-round views while driving. Additionally, thanks to a wide door aperture at the rear combined with ample rear legroom, there is more than enough space for six-footers. Headroom too is more than sufficient!
Should You Buy a Nissan Magnite?
If you’re looking for an affordable family SUV which comes packed full of class-leading features then the answer is a resounding YES! Add to this is modern aggressive SUV looks and Nissan has a clear winner on its hands. This is a vehicle that is going to (in our opinion) dominate this SUV class thanks to its disruptive pricing and overall build quality.
