Nissan India has spiced up the subcompact SUV scene with the launch of the Magnite Kuro edition. Priced at Rs 8.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), this snazzy variant is based on the Magnite’s higher-spec XV trim and comes in three enticing flavors – Kuro petrol MT, Kuro turbo-petrol MT, and Kuro turbo-petrol CVT.

Let’s talk aesthetics. The Magnite Kuro edition embraces the dark side with a suite of blacked-out features. The grille, alloy wheels, roof rails, ORVMs, and even the tail lamp inserts all join the “black is the new black” club. Inside, it’s a black affair with red stitching and a dash of red flair on the dashboard and door panels. If this car had a theme song, it would probably be “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones.

Under the hood, the Kuro edition packs the same 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine found in the regular Magnite. It churns out a respectable 99bhp and 160Nm of torque. You have the option of taming this beast with a 5-speed manual transmission or a more relaxed CVT gearbox. So whether you’re in the mood for spirited driving or laid-back cruising, the Kuro edition has you covered.

If you’re on the hunt for a stylish and sporty spin on the Magnite, the Kuro edition might be your ticket. With its competitive price tag, it’s a value-for-money proposition that adds a touch of pizzazz to your daily drive.

In summary, the Nissan Magnite Kuro edition brings a touch of darkness to the subcompact SUV segment. With its blackout theme, performance chops, and affordability, it’s an appealing option for those looking to stand out on the road without burning a hole in their pocket. So why not add a little ‘kuro’ (that’s Japanese for ‘black’) to your automotive life? It’s the trendy thing to do.
