The Nissan Magnite has arrived in South Africa and is the start of an extensive new product rollout for the Japanese brand.

The much-awaited B-Sport Utility Vehicle speaks to Nissan’s relentless crossover spirit of innovation and style.

 

True to Nissan’s global SUV DNA of advanced technology, the Nissan Magnite comes with numerous first-in-class and best-in-segment features that will provide customers with a differentiated, innovative and accessible experience including an eight-inch full flash touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Utilising a variety of cameras, the around view monitor gives a birds eye view of the vehicle for easy parallel and perpendicular parking.

 

The Magnite features the sleekest headlamps assembled in its class with lightsaber-style turn indicators, while its L-shape daytime running lights and dominating front grille are unlike any other design in the B-SUV segment.
