The SUV received around 32,000 bookings within a month of launch and nearly 78,000 bookings in January 2022. In March this year, the brand rolled out the 50,000th Magnite from its manufacturing plant in Tamil Nadu. Recently, the SUV received a 4-star rating in the Global NCAP and ASEAN NCAP safety test programs.
On the feature front, the top variants come equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument console, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, push start/stop button and keyless entry amongst others.
