In a move to enhance its presence in the competitive crossover SUV segment, Nissan South Africa has introduced the latest addition to the Magnite family – the EZ-Shift variant. Building on the success of the 2021 Magnite launch, the new model is set to offer South African drivers a versatile and convenient driving experience.

Power and Performance

The Magnite EZ-Shift comes equipped with a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated engine, delivering a respectable 53kW of power and 96Nm of torque. What sets this variant apart is the inclusion of an automated manual transmission (AMT), offering the ease of an automatic gearbox while maintaining the control of a manual transmission. The AMT features an actuator that automates gear shifts, eliminating the need for manual clutch action.

Stylish Exterior and Safety Features

Staying true to the Magnite’s sleek design, the EZ-Shift boasts a two-tone exterior color combination and chrome door handles for the Acenta grade. LED lights enhance visibility for the Acenta Plus model. In terms of safety, the Magnite EZ-Shift prioritizes driver and passenger well-being with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, a seat belt warning system, a speed alert system, and hill start assist.

Variant Options

The Magnite EZ-Shift caters to diverse preferences and budgets with three variants:

Technology and Convenience

The mid-range Acenta model and the top-tier Acenta Plus model feature advanced technology for an enhanced driving experience. Keyless entry, a push start/stop button, an 8-inch infotainment system, reverse camera, and a tyre pressure monitor are some of the highlights. The Acenta Plus model goes further by adding LED headlights and an around-view monitor, ensuring comprehensive visibility.


Priced competitively, the Nissan Magnite EZ-Shift aims to strike a balance between performance, technology, safety, and affordability. Positioned as a compact family crossover, it offers South African drivers a practical and stylish option for navigating city roads.

With the addition of the EZ-Shift variant, Nissan continues to evolve its Magnite lineup, providing consumers with more choices to suit their individual preferences and driving needs. As the crossover SUV segment grows in popularity, the Magnite EZ-Shift is poised to make its mark as a compelling and value-for-money option for South African families and urban commuters alike.
