Nissan Magnite scores 4-stars in ASEAN NCAP crash test

It is likely to be the India-spec Magnite that was crash tested.

ASEAN NCAP has awarded the new Nissan Magnite a 4-star safety rating. The rating is based on the overall score and the details will be released in the near future.

The Nissan Magnite was launched in India on December 2, 2020. Currently, the crossover is only manufactured in India and therefore, it is likely to be the India-spec car that was crash tested. However, ASEAN NCAP is yet to confirm this.

The Magnite is based on the CMF-A+ platform. It comes equipped with a host of safety features including ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, dual airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control, Hill Start Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

In India, the Magnite is available with two engine options. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 71 BHP @ 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm @ 3,500 rpm and a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol unit that makes 99 BHP @ 5,000 rpm and 160 Nm @ 2,800-3,600 rpm. Both engines are offered with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Additionally, the Magnite is also be offered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) mated to a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. However, in the CVT version, peak torque has been limited to 152 Nm @ 2,200-4,400 rpm.
