Red Edition

Based on the Acenta level of specification, this Magnite is adorned with several model-specific accents inside and out. Starting with the exterior, the limited-edition model sports “exclusive” badges and graphics and red brake callipers. Chrome trim adorns the tailgate. Two exterior colour options are available. These are Onyx Black and Storm White. 

“[It] harnesses Nissan’s racing pedigree to make a statement in SA’s crossover market”

The red hue is carried over to the interior. The dashboard features red highlights. LED scuff plates are also present. Standard items include touchscreen infotainment and wireless charging.

The latest variant to join the local line-up is equipped with the same 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol powertrain employed by its siblings. The engine is coupled with a CVT. 

“The Magnite Red Edition harnesses Nissan’s racing pedigree to make a statement in South Africa’s crossover market. We wanted to manifest our customers’ passion for adventure and thrill in the design and ignite their passion for driving. We believe the Red Edition will accelerate the already robust demand for the Magnite, with an evolved offering for young, aspirational, and tech-savvy customers,” said Stefan Haasbroek, marketing director at Nissan Africa.

Initially limited to only 600 units, the special-edition Magnite is priced from R298 300.
