Nis­san Kicks

Auto Today - - Update! -

Nis­saN ur­geNTly needs a su­per seller in In­dia and that ve­hi­cle could be the Kicks. The Kicks comes with rather quirky styling com­plete with flared wheel arches and pro­trud­ing bumpers. The car is ex­pected to be based on the same BO Plat­form which un­der­pins the Re­nault Duster as well. This will give the com­pany the ad­van­tage of pric­ing the Kicks com­pet­i­tively. For In­dia we ex­pect Nis­san to load the Kicks with the tried and tested 1.5 dCi diesel en­gine and of­fer it in the 110bhp state of tune. How­ever, a more ef­fi­cient vari­ant can­not be ruled out com­pletely. Both man­ual and au­to­matic ver­sions will be launched. Con­sid­er­ing petrol SUVs are the rage, we ex­pect a 1.6-litre petrol vari­ant as well. The Kicks will be of­fered with only FWD in In­dia and a AWD vari­ant may fol­low later. Ex­pect the Kicks to be launched this fes­tive sea­son and priced be­tween the Rs 10 to 12 lakh mark.
