2020 Nissan Magnite Vs Tata Nexon SUV: Spec Comparison

by Navyatha Sandiri

Tata Nexon is one of the top sellers in the country’s compact SUV market. It is significant that after Altroz, Nexon is the second Tata Motors product to receive a total five-star safety ranking in Global NCAP. On the opposite, we have the Nissan Magnite to launch shortly. Nissan has been suffering for a while with low country sales and the forthcoming Magnite SUV sub-meter is expected to re-establish sales for the Japanese automaker in India. Read below for more detail on the major distinctions between these two versions.


The Nissan Magnite features masculine elements of styling and a beefier cap which strengthens the character of the SUV. The car has large bold black grille on all sides with large chrome slats. There is an elegant LED bi-projector headlamp with light lightsabre-style indicators, along with L-shaped DRLs and LED fog lamps.  Magnite sub-four metre SUV is also available in nine options – five monotones and four dual-tone colours – the Magnite SUV sub-four metres. The car would have 16-inch alloy rolling wheels with diamond-cut alloy wheels, squared wheel arches and incorporated sculpted bodyside cover, which increases the quotient style. The front and rear parts feature silver skid plate and the roof rails have a capability of 50 kg and a gap of 205 mm from the ground.

Earlier this year, Tata Motors launched the Nexon facelift in India, offering a fresh range of cosmetics and features. The new edition is now sleeker and features a chiselled appearance instead of an earlier muscular and rounded-off look. The vehicle is now fitted with a new dual-barrel projector headlamp system with incorporated tri-arrow LED DRLs. In addition, a large stash of finished piano-black and thin air inlets is now open. The lower air dam is now bigger and features a large ‘tri-arrow’ themed grille.    Overall, the new Nexon is having a more complex look. The car rides on 16-inch wheels of an 8-spoke design instead of the older 5-spoke units.
