Nissan to launch 2 new SUVs in India in 2024 as a part of Nissan’s new lineup for India
Nissan is a renowned automaker that is gearing up to significantly impact the Indian automotive scene in 2024 with the launch of two anticipated SUV models. Nissan’s strategic roadmap includes introducing five new vehicles to the Indian market within the next two to three years. This ambitious plan encompasses a diverse range of offerings including a new midsize SUV, a seven-seater midsize SUV, a budget-friendly MPV, and an entry-level electric vehicle based on the CMF-A platform. While all these models are in the developmental phase, the Magnite facelift is poised to be the trailblazer among them. Let’s look at the 2 new Nissan SUVs launching in 2024.
1. 2024 Nissan Magnite Facelift
The revamped Magnite will be the first among Nissan’s new lineup to hit the Indian roads. This sub-four-meter SUV has already carved a niche as a value-for-money offering in its segment. The facelift will bring forth not only cosmetic enhancements but also updates to the interior ensuring that it stays ahead in terms of design and features. Although no major mechanical changes are in the pipeline, the existing 1.0L three-cylinder petrol engine is likely to power the Magnite, continuing in both naturally aspirated (NA) and turbo configurations.
2. 2024 Nissan X-Trail
The X-Trail is a seven-seater SUV and will make waves in the Indian market. The SUV draws attention with its innovative features and is made on the CMF-C platform, similar to the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Nissan X-Trail boasts an innovative self-charging hybrid system that combines a 1.5L VC-Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine and a variable compression ratio with the second-gen e-Power system. Global markets currently enjoy the X-Trail with a 2.4L four-cylinder NA petrol engine and the hybrid variant with an all-wheel-drive system.
The upcoming Nissan X-Trail will compete fiercely with models like the VW Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq. With its seven-seater configuration, the X-Trail will cater to the preferences of the Indian SUV enthusiast. The SUV will arrive in India as a CKD unit and will cost quite more compared to the cars locally sourced in India.

As part of the Renault-Nissan alliance, substantial investments are made to bring these exciting new products to fruition. The midsize SUV draws inspiration from the new-gen Dacia Duster and the seven-seater SUV that inspired by the Bigster concept. Furthermore, an entry-level electric vehicle based on the Kwid EV platform and a compact MPV following the badge engineering route. It will be based on the Renault Triber and is anticipated to follow suit.
Nissan’s recent showcase of global SUVs in New Delhi, including the Qashqai, Juke, and the soon-to-arrive X-Trail shows the company’s commitment to India. The X-Trail stands out with its hybrid powertrain and global acclaim that promises an exhilarating driving experience for Indian consumers.
