Codenamed Nissan EM2, the Nissan Magnite will be based on the CMF-A+ platform that currently underpins the Renault Triber.

It will be mated either to a 5-speed automatic manual or an optional CVT transmission. The entry-level versions may get a 1.0-liter natural-aspirated motor (codename: BR10) paired to a 5-speed manual and a possible 5-speed AMT.

Nissan India will offer the Magnite with Renault’s BR10 engine and its HR10 engine.

Nissan Magnite will be equipped with features including a wide touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto & linked apps, and Reverse camera.
