Rumour: Nissan Magnite to get an AMT variant in October
The new 5-speed AMT will bridge the gap between the manual and CVT variants.
Nissan is likely to introduce an automated manual transmission (AMT) in the Magnite. It is said that AMT variants of the Magnite could be launched in October.
The Nissan Magnite is currently available with two engine options. These include a 1.0-litre petrol engine producing 71 BHP and 96 Nm and a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 99 BHP and 160 Nm. While the former gets a 5-speed manual transmission, the turbo-petrol engine is paired with a CVT.
The new 5-speed AMT will bridge the gap between the manual and CVT variants. Reports suggest that the new gearbox will be paired with the 1.0-litre naturally aspirated engine.
The Nissan Magnite comes in four variants: XE, XL, XV Executive and XV. It is said that the higher variants could get the AMT option.
