In alignment with prevailing market dynamics, Nissan India has just introduced a remarkable all-black iteration of their celebrated Magnite, christened as the Magnite Kuro. This edition boasts a striking ebony aesthetic, encompassing both its exterior and interior facets. Adding to the excitement, Nissan has officially declared the integration of an innovative AMT gearbox, a highly anticipated complement to the 1.0-litre naturally aspirated powerplant.
Since its initial debut, the Nissan Magnite has presented customers with a choice between two gearbox configurations: the conventional 5-speed MT and the optional CVT, primarily offered with the turbo-petrol variant. Interestingly, its sibling, the Renault Kiger, had already extended the option of an AMT gearbox for the 1.0-litre NA petrol engine. Now, Nissan’s Magnite joins the ranks, offering this choice as well.
In regard to the Nissan Magnite Kuro, this distinctive edition is distinguished by its obsidian-hued front grille, alloy wheels, and door handles. The interior showcases an all-encompassing black motif, emanating an air of sophistication. The front fenders proudly bear the Magnite KURO insignia, while the brake calipers sport a vibrant scarlet finish. The question of whether the Magnite Kuro edition will be compatible with all available powertrain configurations remains unanswered at this juncture.
Nevertheless, it is worth noting that the 1.0-litre NA petrol engine powering the Magnite delivers a formidable 71 horsepower and 96 Newton-meters of peak torque. In contrast, the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine impressively churns out 99 horsepower and a maximum torque of up to 160 Newton-meters. Precise pricing details for the Nissan Magnite Kuro, as well as the Magnite AMT variant, are still shrouded in secrecy.
Enthusiasts and prospective buyers are encouraged to keep a vigilant eye on TOI Auto for the forthcoming announcements regarding the pricing of the Nissan Magnite AMT and the coveted Magnite Kuro Edition.
