The Nissan Magnite line-up in South Africa has gained two new derivatives, each featuring a new Red Edition package.
The stunning new Red Edition is based on the Magnite 1.0 Turbo Acenta variant and is likewise available with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Upgrading to the special-edition model costs an extra R7 800, with the manual version priced at R298 300 and the CVT derivative at R325 300.
So, what do you score for the additional outlay? The main changes come to the exterior with red accents on the grille, front bumper cladding, wheel arches and body side cladding. The front brake callipers, too, are finished in a crimson hue.
The Magnite Red Edition furthermore features decals running along its flanks, just below the window line, culminating in bold graphics on each C-pillar. At the back, there’s an additional tailgate garnish for this variant and a “Red Edition” badge.
The Red Edition is available in 2 colour options, Onyx Black and Storm White. Inside the special-edition model, you’ll find a red-hued dashboard and matching red accents on the seat upholstery, door-side armrest and centre console.
The Magnite has been Nissan South Africa’s strongest seller in the passenger-vehicle space, with 412 units registered in August, 471 units in September and 735 units in October 2022.
