23 Magnite AMT1

What’s new?

The new model is set with an automated manual transmission (AMT), offering a smooth and comfortable drive.


The newer budget models each has a naturally aspirated engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The new 5-speed AMT introduced will bridge the gap between the manual and continuously variable transmission (CVT) variants.

The new Nissan Magnite EZ-Shift is the most affordable 2-Pedal SUV in the market and comes with the 1.0-litre non-turbo engine and Automated Manual Transmission with almost similar features to that of the current 1.0L non-Turbo engine grades (Visia, Acenta and Acenta Plus).


The familiar crossover-looking body type remains with the new Magnite EZ-Shift fitted with a 2-tone exterior, chrome door handles for the Acenta grade, and LED lights for the Acenta Plus model, which is a feature-rich premium offering with a more prominent road presence.

Price and range:

The new Magnite EZ-Shift’s prices range from R243 900 for its entry model, the Magnite 1.0 Visia, to R279 900 for the Magnite 1.0 Acenta Plus EZ-Shift, and they are now available.
