Launched in December 2020, Nissan Magnite is due for a facelift in 2023 to help it take on updated Hyundai Venue and Maruti Brezza
The Nissan Magnite has been successful in helping its carmaker stay afloat in the highly challenging Indian car market. That said, the initial buzz on the new vehicle has mellowed down due to the advent of the updated Hyundai Venue and the new Brezza. Still, though, the B-SUV attracts many new buyers every month. However, in order to take on the strong competition, the sub-compact-SUV is expected to soon get a facelift that should bring it back into the limelight. An illustration that we have below gives us a good idea of what one can expect from the mid-cycle update for the affordable SUV.

2023 Nissan Mangite Facelift
So far, we have not seen even a single spy image of the updated SUV. However, it’s pretty much for sure that the facelift would be programmed on the lines of the latest SUVs from the Japanese carmaker. The visual rendering of the 2023 Nissan Magnite facelift we have above visualizes the sub-compact SUV with a very modern front-fascia. The huge honeycomb grille of the current model has been replaced with the signature Nissan V-Motion unit. The original headlamps have been replaced with LED units. Even the bumper is new and has a cleaner and sportier look than that of the current model. In the side profile, the dual-tone alloy wheels of the current model have been replaced with more upmarket units. Other than this, the rendering doesn’t show any other update for the facelift.
Overall, the 2023 Nissan Magnite shown in this rendering looks extremely stylish due to the V-Motion grille and new headlamps. In fact, many styling touches of the current Magnite gel up extremely well with the new styling package shown in the image we have above. Meanwhile, the new wheels together with the 205 mm ground clearance give the Magnite a bold stance. Moreover, the chrome on the front grille and the window line are sure to impress the bling-loving Indian consumer. The only missing bit here, as per us, are the stylish L-shaped LED DRLs available on the current model.
