Nissan Magnite to be recalled due to faulty door handle sensor. Check details


Nissan has announced a recall for select variants of Nissan Magnite including the base XE and mid XL produced between November 2020 and December 2023

Nissan Motor is all set to introduce a new 5-speed AMT gearbox to its Magnite SUV. Variants with the new transmission unit will be sold along with the CVT gearbox already on offer.

Nissan Motor India (NMIPL) has announced a proactive and voluntary recall of select variants of Nissan Magnite produced between November 2020 and December 2023 for a retrofit of front door handle sensors. This action impacts the base XE and mid XL variants exclusively.

Units manufactured after December 2023 are not affected. Nissan has clarified that the recall does not affect the drivability of the vehicle, and customers can continue to use their cars as usual. The retrofit of the new sensor will be conducted at Nissan service centres at no cost to the customers.

A new Magnite on the horizon

Launched in 2020, the Nissan Magnite is currently offered in four variants – XE, XL, XV, and XV Premium. Recently, a test mule of the Magnite facelift was spotted in Chennai for the first time, albeit heavily camouflaged. While specific changes are not yet known, it is expected that the sub-compact SUV will receive new bumpers at the front and rear, along with updates to the lighting elements.

Mechanically, no changes are expected in the Magnite, which will continue to be powered by two 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engines. The naturally aspirated unit delivers 70 bhp of power and 96 Nm of torque, while the turbocharged engine version produces 98 bhp and 152 Nm of torque.

The CVT-equipped Magnite has a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 17.40 kmpl, while the turbo petrol variant achieves 20 kmpl, the company claims. The AMT gearbox offers a claimed fuel economy of 19.70 kmpl, and the manual gearbox delivers 19.35 kmpl.
