It’s raining SUVs!
Nissan India is gearing up for the launch of the Kicks SUV in the Indian market. The Japanese automaker has officially opened bookings for the Kicks SUV. The SUV can be booked at any of Nissan`s dealerships across the country for an amount of Rs. 25,000. Interested customers also have the option to book the car online.
The interiors and cabin of the India spec Kicks is quite different from the Global spec model. The Nissan Kicks is underpinned by the same platform that is used in the Captur/Terrano. In the looks department the Kicks is the best-looking SUV when compared to the Duster, Captur or Terrano.
Nissan`s India design Studio worked a lot on the Kicks design which is very appealing with the typical Nissan Grille up front and a curvaceous rear which reminds up of the Juke. However, Nissan has nailed it this time with the design of the Kicks. I`m sure a lot of buyers will appreciate the stance and gorgeous 17-inch alloy wheels.
The car gets an upmarket dual tone interior (black and brown) with soft touch materials which gives it a premium feel. Some bits and equipment, however, have been carried over from the Renault Captur.
Hardeep Singh Brar, Director, Sales and Commercial, Nissan Motors India Ltd., said, “The new Nissan Kicks is a testimony to our commitment to bring the best of global products and technology to our customers in India. We are confident that with its progressive SUV design and advanced technology, the KICKS will appeal to new-age urban adventure seekers.”
Nissan has packed in a lot of features in the Kicks SUV. Key features include a touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You also get built in navigation, 360-degree camera, 4 airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Cornering Lights and Cruise Control.
The Nissan Kicks will be offered with petrol and diesel engines. Under the hood, the Kicks is powered by a 1.5-liter diesel motor that develops 108 bhp of power and 240 Nm of torque. The petrol motor is a 1.5-liter unit that produces 104 bhp and 12 Nm of torque. Both the engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
When launched the Nissan Kicks will compete with the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Renault Captur.
