Nissan Magnite Kuro Edition: Details
The new Nissan Magnite Kuro Edition introduces several striking changes to its exterior and interior. Notably, it offers an all-black color option for the exterior, creating a sleek and stylish appearance. This black theme extends to various elements of the car, including the grille, ORVMs (Outside Rear View Mirrors), front and rear skid plates.
Moreover, the Magnite Kuro Edition boasts smoked LED headlamps, black alloy wheels with eye-catching red brake calipers, and features a distinctive Kuro badging positioned under the ORVMs.
Inside the cabin, the Magnite Kuro Edition continues the all-black theme but enhances it with subtle refinements. The interior instrument panel now features a patterned film and a gloss black end finisher. Black interior accents and black door trim inserts further enhance the cohesive design.
In terms of features and upgrades, the Magnite Kuro Edition impresses with its new 360-degree Around View Monitor (AVM), providing enhanced visibility and safety. Other additions include a center console armrest with rear AC vents, KURO-themed floor mats, a convenient wireless charger, and a wider interior rear-view mirror (IRVM). These changes not only elevate the aesthetics but also enhance the overall comfort and functionality of the Magnite Kuro Edition.
Nissan Magnite Kuro Edition: Powertrain
In terms of powertrains, the new Nissan Magnite Kuro Edition retains the existing engine options. These choices include:
- 1-litre Naturally Aspirated Petrol Engine: This engine generates 72PS of power and 96 Nm of torque.
