Nissan Kicks Overview
The Nissan Kicks is expected to launch in India in January 2019. If interested, you can book one starting December 14. Powering the Nissan Kicks will be the same engines as the Renault Captur’s - a 106PS, 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre, 110PS diesel. Gearbox options include a 5-speed manual for the petrol and 6-speed manual for the diesel; there won’t be an automatic transmission at the time of launch. The ground clearance of the Nissan Kicks is rated at 210mm, the same as the Renault Captur’s. Boot space of 400 litres isn’t the best but is marginally more than the Captur’s.
Standard safety features in the Nissan Kicks comprise dual airbags, ABS with EBD and BA as well as ISOFIX child seat mounts. Top-spec will also get side airbags, ESP and hill start assist. The Nissan Kicks is equipped with a first-in-class 360-degree camera that’s meant to aid the driver when parking by providing a bird’s eye view of the surroundings. Other features in the Nissan Kicks include LED projector headlamps, 17-inch alloys, rain-sensing wipers, cooled and illuminated glovebox, cruise control and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Another segment first from Nissan is Auto AC being offered as standard. Passengers at the rear also get AC vents and a 12V charging slot. What does the Nissan Kicks miss out on? A sunroof and auto-dimming IRVM.
The Nissan Kicks will compete against the Hyundai Creta and Renault Captur with a likely price tag of Rs 10-14 lakh.

Nissan Kicks Highlights
Nissan’s Kicks isn’t your conventional, boxy SUV. It mixes some likeable crossover elements, and looks quite muscular too. The flared wheel arches, the aggressive front bumper and the large pulled back headlamps give it a distinct persona. Compared to the cute-sy Nissan cars we’re used to seeing, the Kicks definitely kicks things up a notch. The window line rakes upwards into the C-pillar, that creates a cool floating roof effect. The US-spec Kicks gets goodies such as LED headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails as well as LED tail lamps. We’re expecting the India-spec Kicks to carry over these elements, but be visually larger. That’s because the Kicks in India is likely to be underpinned by the Renault Duster’s old B0 platform, and not Nissan’s new V platform. This is being done in the interest of keeping costs low.
The interiors of the global-spec Kicks looks inviting, and upmarket. It remains to be seen if Nissan India chooses to replicate the same interior, or opts for a different design. The international version gets a raft of features including a 7.0-inch touchscreen, 360 degree camera, a colour TFT screen in the instrument cluster and more. How many of these features are carried over into the Kicks in India, remains to be seen.
We’re expecting Nissan to use the 1.5-litre dCi Diesel engine for the Kicks in India. This engine produces 110PS of power and 245Nm of torque, and is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission under the hood of the Renault Captur. The petrol motor which makes 106PS/142Nm is likely to be shared with the Renault as well.
Renault Duster: The car that started it all, the Renault Duster is the only modern crossover in the segment to feature an AWD system. Its butch design, adequate space, CVT transmission (petrol), AMT (diesel) and all-weather ability help it score a lot of brownie points in the segment. Interior quality and limited service network make it less appealing.
Honda BR-V: Honda's offering in the segment is essentially a jacked up Mobilio with some mechanical changes to compensate for the raised stance. It is one of the only crossovers here which can seat seven people.
Nissan Terrano: The Duster's better looking cousin (for some), the Terrano suffers from being too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.
Hyundai Creta: There’s not much wrong with the Creta. It’s spacious, is built well inside out and drives well too. It’s got an appeal very few of its competitors can match.
Renault Captur: The Captur brings some style to a segment of boxy SUVs. If you want to stand out in the crowd or while munching highway miles - the big Renault is worth a dekko!
Getting a slice of the midsize SUV pie isn’t going to be easy. Nissan’s Kicks has built enough buzz around it to warrant attention from buyers. Time for Nissan to make the wait worthwhile with a cracking product!
