Just a few weeks ago, the Japanese automaker Nissan India launched the newest edition of its sub-compact SUV, the Magnite. This new edition has been named the Magnite Kuro Edition, and it features a sinister all-black appearance. The Nissan Magnite Kuro Edition has become the country’s most affordable dark edition model.

He adds that, apart from this, it gets halogen headlamps and boomerang-shaped LED DRLs on the front bumper. He also mentions that this variant misses out on fog lights, but they can be added from aftermarket shops or the dealerships.
Next, the vlogger opens the engine bay of the new Magnite Kuro Edition and talks about the powertrain options. Starting with the first engine option, which is a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 72 PS of power and 96 Nm of torque.
