The more competitive than ever compact SUV segment has a new entrant. It’s the Nissan Magnite.

The Magnite is the new offering from the Japanese automaker after years of staying somewhat silent. It might even be a do or die situation for Nissan, which has been facing some low sales in the country over the past few years.

But Nissan seems fairly bullish about the Magnite due to a variety of reasons. So much so, that the company plans on targeting the hot premium hatchback segment with the Magnite.

Since the launch of the car in India, the company has received over 5,000 bookings for the vehicle, with most of them for the top variant. Adding to that is more than 50,000 enquiries about the vehicle.

But is it going to work? Or is it going to turn awry for the carmaker?

Let’s find out. Here are the ten reasons as to why buying the Nissan Magnite makes more sense than buying a hot hatchback.
