Nissan India has released a new teaser video of their upcoming SUV, the Kicks. The Nissan Kicks, if rumours are correct, will be a replacement for the current Terrano, once it is launched in January 2019. Production of the same has already started at Nissan's Chennai facility.
The teaser video showcases some of the key highlights of the Nissan Kicks, such as the ‘V-motion' grille, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, powered ORVMs and the high ground clearance it has.
The new Nissan Kicks was unveiled close to a month before. Nissan India was not doing particularly well in terms of sales in the last few months, and with the launch of the new Kicks, the brand aims to make a difference.
The Nissan Kicks is 4,384mm long, 1,813mm wide and stands 1,656mm tall. The wheelbase is a good 2,673mm, which translates to better interior space. In addition to this, the Kicks has a unique graphene body structure, dubbed as Gravity PhilicEnergy Absorption which offers better impact resistance.
The five-seater SUV is also equipped with a 360-degree camera, dubbed as Around View Monitor (AVM), with the ability to detect objects in motion. It is a segment-first feature, borrowed from the global-spec Nissan Kicks. The feature comes in the form of four cameras; one on each corner.
The Nissan Kicks will be offered in both petrol and diesel formats. The 1.5-litre petrol unit delivers 105bhp and 142Nm of torque, and is mated to a five-speed manual or CVT. The 1.5-litre diesel, on the other hand, makes 108bhp and 240Nm; a six-speed manual or an AMT being the transmission choices.
Once launched, the new Nissan Kicks will rival the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and the Mahindra XUV 500. Presently, the Nissan Terrano performs in the same segment and compared to its competitors, it is quite outdated.
Thoughts On The Nissan Kicks
The Nissan Kicks is a popular five-seater in global markets and it is indeed a very good product for the Indian market (though being slightly toned down to reduce prices). It is high time that Nissan comes back in the game, and the new teaser video introduces their latest bet, a little better. What do you think of the new Nissan Kicks?
