Upcoming Cars: Nissan Kicks

Nissan Kicks is expected to be launched in January 2019.

 

Last month Nissan India revealed the exterior of its upcoming Kicks compact SUV. It is expected to be launched in January 2019 and will compete with the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Captur.

 

The India-spec Kicks looks identical to the international model which debuted in 2016. But while the international model is based on the Nissan V-platform which underpins the Micra and Sunny, the India-spec model is based on the B0 platform which underpins the Terrano and the Renault Captur. So compared to the international model, the India-spec Nissan Kicks is longer and taller measuring 4384mm in length, 1813mm in width and 1656mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2673mm and a ground clearance of 210mm.

Nissan has managed to keep the looks of the India-spec Kicks similar to the international model with the big V-motion grille, large headlamp with signature LED DRLs, boomerang shaped LED tail-lamps and floating-effect roof being the highlights of the design. Nissan has still not revealed the interior of the India-spec Kicks, but we hope the good looking design of the international model is retained.

Features which can be expected on the Nissan Kicks include projector headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, advanced telematics with information of smartphone app and also a 360-degree view camera. Just like the Renault Captur, the Nissan Kicks is expected to get a lot of customisation options to the exterior as well as the interior.

 

The Nissan Kicks is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre diesel (108bhp/245Nm, 6MT) and a 1.5-litre petrol (104bhp/145Nm, 5MT). Expect the Kicks to be priced in the ₹ 10-14 lakh price bracket.
