When we first saw the Nissan Kicks in October, there was a lot to be excited about. This compact SUV has a lot riding on its shoulders, after all. But, while Nissan showed us how the India-spec Kicks would look from the outside, they ensured none of us got a sneak peek into the interiors. What they also kept tightly under wraps, was the feature list. Now though, we’re driving the Kicks, and we can share some pictures. Let’s take you through what caught our eye:

Nissan Kicks

The Kicks is a compact SUV, built on the same platform as the Renault Duster and the Captur.

Here's a closer look at the blacked-out LED projector headlamps. Note the low-set positioning of the foglamps.

Dual-tone alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60R17 rubber — same as the Renault Captur.

Our media car also has a boot lip protector with 'Kicks' embossing. Neat! Also, notice the lack of variant badging.

400-litres of bootspace. Not class-leading, but spacious nonetheless. Captur = 392 litres.

 A first for this segment, and Nissan! 360° view camera. That means there's a camera on the grille...

The dashboard looks similar to the global-spec Kicks. There’s soft-touch leather here, and double stitching too!

Brown + black is a refreshing combo. Notice the carbon fibre-like detailing around the start-stop button

But, there’s a lot shared with the Duster / Captur duo. Does this ring any bells?

Power window switches have been borrowed from the Captur as well

Automatic climate control interface has been re-skinned to suit the Kicks’ interior. This will be offered as standard.

There's leather upholstery to be had, too! The quilted pattern looks premium!

Rear door can house a small bottle and some knick-knacks. Notice leather upholstery on the elbow rest.

Engine options: 106PS 1.5-litre petrol, and 110PS 1.5-litre diesel. Petrol gets 5-speed manual, whereas diesel gets a 6-speed gearbox. No automatic transmission for now.
