The rise of SUVs in the Indian market is an all-time high and with the launch of Nissan Magnite at a starting price of Rs 4.99 lakh shocked several carmakers too. Dimension-wise, Nissan Magnite wins the competition single-handedly. It is longer, wider and taller than the Altroz and also takes on the bumpy roads easily because of the 205 mm ground clearance as opposed to the 165 mm found in the Tata Altroz. Also, 16-inch wheels are found in Magnite as compared to the 15-inchers in the Altroz. While Nissan Magnite loses out on the smaller boot space but wins the competition with its 50 kg load carrying capacity, thanks to the roof rails.
