The official distributor of the Nissan brand in Kenya, Crown Motors Group, has launched its latest SUV model, The Nissan Magnite into the Kenya Market. The sub-compact SUV will seal Nissan’s commitment to the Kenyan Market in the very competitive segment of subcompact SUVs. The Magnite model was launched globally this year and it gathered a lot of interest and excitement because of its bold fresh styling, powerful performance and high-tech safety features.
The National Sales Manager for Crown Motors Group Maliha Sheikh said the company is confident Kenyans will embrace it as Kenya is one of Nissan's oldest markets and the company is proud to launch the product in the country.
"Kenya is one of Nissan's oldest markets, and we are proud to launch The Nissan Magnite SUV model into this market. This is an SUV like no other, from its attractive aesthetics to its powerful functionality and safety features. We are confident that Kenyans will embrace it," Maliha said.
In terms of its bold fresh styling, The Nissan Magnite’s exterior sets itself apart thanks to a unique design that gives it a confident and agile stance while still appearing vibrant, and it has a dual-tone body colour that gives it a youthful look. The all-LED front light package includes noticeable L-shaped daytime running lights that sit below the stylish slim LED headlamps. Together with the edgy grille, featuring Nissan’s new brand logo, it gives the Nissan Magnite a striking SUV presence. The SUV also boasts electric folding mirrors and 16” Alloy Wheels.
The SUV boasts a spacious layout that includes a high seating position and wide shoulder space between the driver and front passenger. The rear passengers enjoy a spacious level of knee room usually found in larger vehicles. An 8-inch infotainment touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give the vehicle a premium feel. The boot has 336 litres of cargo space with a 60:40 rear seat split, which makes it easy to pack extra for those longer trips.
The SUV is powered by an all-new, 1.0-litre turbocharged engine that is one of the most powerful in the class. Built for urban adventures and great for the Kenyan driver.
Crown Motors Group Managing Director Tony Voorhout said the launch of Nissan Magnite shows Nissan's commitment to the Kenyan market and he was sure Kenyans will be excited to own the SUV.
“The launch of the Nissan Magnite shows Nissan’s commitment in the Kenya market and with over 60 years of presence in the market, our vehicle models speak to the Kenyan people. This is another great milestone for us and we know Kenyans are going to be excited to own The Nissan Magnite SUV,” said Tony Voorhout.
Crown Motors Group affirmed it has state-of-the-art facilities in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu and an extensive dealer network throughout the rest of the country to service their customer needs. They have confirmed they have all the spare parts available for this new model as well as all their models, and their technicians are trained and ready to service the Nissan Magnite.
