3 Sub-4 meter products are in the pipeline
These upcoming Nissan cars could define the brand’s future in India! Nissan’s sales here rely heavily on the Magnite. Although this compact SUV sells quite well, depending solely on a single product isn’t a good long-term strategy. Nissan seems to know this and is preparing to launch as many as six new products in the upcoming years, in collaboration with Renault.
Upcoming Nissan Cars In India
4Th Gen Nissan X-Trail
Firstly, reports suggest the Nissan X-Trail will be the initial model arriving in India. Unveiled last October, this fourth-generation model is anticipated to make its debut in the domestic market sometime next year. It will be sold in India through the CBU route, and there’s been an international facelift recently. While it comes in various powertrain options, India might receive the 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology, paired with a CVT gearbox.
Through a partnership with Renault, Nissan plans to introduce a new MPV in its lineup. According to reports, this compact MPV will take cues from the Renault Triber, measuring just below 4 meters. Nissan is likely to make significant alterations to distinguish it from the Renault model. Price-wise, it’s expected to match the Triber, using the same powertrain and underpinnings.

Nissan Compact SUV
Expected to launch in 2025, Nissan is developing a new compact SUV for the Indian market. While there’s already a mid-size Nissan SUV based on the Duster coming to India in 5 and 7-seater versions, there’s also a sub-4-meter SUV in the works. This new 5-seater compact SUV might be positioned above the current Magnite in Nissan’s lineup. More details are anticipated next year, giving a clearer idea of what to expect from this upcoming SUV.
Nissan Ariya Electric SUV
The Nissan Ariya electric SUV has been spotted in India while being transported on a flatbed. It made its global debut in July 2020 and features futuristic styling with slim LED headlamps and V-shaped LED daytime running lights. The minimalistic interior has a touchscreen infotainment screen and a digital instrument cluster.
It comes with autonomous driving tech and safety features such as ‘Pro PILOT 2.0’ driver assistance system and an in-built Alexa assistant. In the international market, it offers single or dual-motor configurations with varying battery capacities. Nissan could launch this EV in India in the upcoming years.
Nissan is considering the new Qashqai SUV for the Indian market. It is based on the same platform as the X-Trail. Sources confirm that Nissan is planning to bring the Qashqai to India soon. It will be the first to enter the market, followed by the X-Trail.
The Nissan Juke is a funky crossover coupe sold overseas. It has a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol strong hybrid powertrain. The car could likely get features like a 4.2-inch infotainment screen, cruise control, auto emergency braking and several ADAS features. It could be priced at around 25 lakhs, if launched in the Indian market.
