Nissan Magnite Front

Nissan Magnite recalled over faulty door handle sensor

Nissan Magnite recalled in the Indian market. The recall aims to address concerns related to the front door handle sensors in certain variants of the vehicle.

The recall applies to Magnite units manufactured between November 2020 and December 2023, specifically affecting the entry-level XE and mid-spec XL variants. Owners of the impacted vehicles are set to be contacted by Nissan in April, with the replacement of the front door handle sensors to be conducted at Nissan service centres at no charge to the customers.

It’s worth noting that Nissan has assured customers that the recall does not pose any drivability issues, thus allowing owners to continue using their vehicles as usual until the necessary retrofit is completed.

The Japanese carmaker is currently preparing to launch the facelifted version of the Magnite. The prototypes have already been spotted testing over the last few days under heavy camouflage.

While the changes in the exterior design are likely to be primarily in soft parts, the interior is expected to undergo notable revisions. It is expected to get a redesigned dashboard and new features including single-pane sunroof, larger touchscreen infotainment system with the latest UI, all digital cluster with new detailing, wireless charger, front seat ventilation, auto AC with rear AC vents, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six airbags, etc.

The Nissan Magnite facelift is likely to retain its engine offerings. It will continue to be powered by the same engines – 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol and 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit. The naturally aspirated engine comes with 5-speed MT and AMT options while the turbo unit offers 5-speed MT and CVT automatic transmission options.

The compact SUV competes with the likes of Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, etc.

If you have the existing Nissan Magnite, make sure to check the manufacturing dates if you haven’t been contacted by the dealership yet for the recall. Visit the nearest service centre to get your car checked.
