Nissan Magnet was launched in the Indian market in 2020 and changed the fortunes of Nissan as a brand in India. It is a game changer product that helped Nissan get back into the game in India. The main attraction of Magnite was that it was sold as an SUV and had quite a competitive price. The initial prices of Magnite were very attractive and the top-end variant was priced below Rs 10 lakh, ex-showroom. Several videos of Nissan Magnet’s aftermarket accessories and changes are now available on the market. We’ve featured some of them on our website and here we have another video where a base model has been modified to look like a top-end version.
The video was uploaded by MR Cars to their YouTube channel. The video begins by talking about accessories installed outside of Vlogger. He showed an aftermarket ABS plastic bumper guard that gives the front of the car an aggressive look. There is also chrome garnish installed on the bumper. Since it is a lower variant it does not get LD DRLs on the bumper. The halogen lights in the headlamps have been replaced with LED units and an aftermarket dual-function LED DRL has also been installed. A set of chrome garnish is installed on the headlamps to get a premium look.
A black tape has been used to mask a small dent on the panel above the front grille. Coming to the side profile, ORVM has chrome garnish, lower window chrome garnish and chrome door handles. Right at the front, the rear bumper also gets ABS plastic bumpers which gives the car a muscular look. Apart from this, no major changes have been made in the exterior of the vehicle.
Inside, the owner installed a bright scaffold pat and flashing LED strip on the door The door pads and dashboard get ambient light and the owner has also left for an aftermarket steering cover. In addition, the owner talked about floor mats and memory foam which he bought to help achieve a better seat position while driving. He also installed an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system and steering wheel mounted controls. A base tube has been installed in the car and inside the boot. The touchscreen also shows feeds from the reverse parking camera which is an aftermarket accessory.
Vlogger does not specify the cost of the changes made to the magnet. He has not installed aftermarket alloy wheels and still continues with the original steel rims with dual tone wheel covers. The Nissan Magnet is available with two engine options. Both are 1.0 liter petrol engines. One of them is a naturally ambitious unit and the other is a turbocharged. The naturally ambitious petrol engine generates 72 Bhp and 96 Nm of peak torque. Turbocharged, the three-cylinder petrol unit generates 98 bhp and 160 Nm of peak torque. The naturally desired version is only available with a manual gearbox and the turbo petrol version gets a manual and a CVT gearbox option.
