Can the Nissan Kicks, armed with the most powerful turbo petrol engine, kick some dirt into its rivals’ faces in a price comparison?

Nissan has launched the Kicks 2020 with two petrol engine options: a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated unit and a new 1.3-litre turbo petrol. Its prices range between Rs 9.50 lakh and Rs 14.15 lakh (ex-showroom). But can it compel you to sign on the dotted line when rivals like the Hyundai Creta, the Kia Seltos and the MG Hector are in the room? We analyse the specs and prices to find out the answer. We will only consider similarly priced SUVs that offer a petrol engine option as the Kicks is a petrol-only SUV.

  • The Nissan Kicks has a starting price lower than its direct rivals like the Seltos and Creta. All three cars here are powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine but the Nissan is slightly underpowered in comparison to the other two.

  • All four cars in the above comparison pack in a turbocharged petrol engine. The Nissan Kicks offers it at the lowest starting price. 

  • The Nissan Kicks turbo has the smallest but the most powerful and torquiest engine, at 156PS/254Nm.

2020 Hyundai Creta

  • The Creta turbo petrol is overly expensive as it only comes paired with a 7-speed DCT. The entry-level Seltos turbo petrol, the GTK, which gets a manual transmission, is nearly Rs 2 lakh more expensive than the Kicks turbo manual.

  • The Hector belonging from a segment above is nearly Rs 1 lakh more expensive than the Kicks turbo. Its 1.5-litre unit is anyway a turbocharged unit. On top of that, it’s the only offering with a 48V mild hybrid system.

  • Prices of the Nissan Kicks turbo paired with a CVT max out at a point which takes you only halfway through the Creta, Seltos and Hector’s variant lineup. 

  • Those looking for the most affordable turbo petrol automatic need not look beyond the Nissan Kicks. 

  • Top of the line automatic petrol options of the Seltos, Creta and Hector are priced similarly at over the Rs 17 lakh mark, more than Rs 3 lakh dearer than Nissan. 

Hyundai Creta 2020 vs Rivals: What Do The Prices Say?

  • All the cars pricier than the Nissan Kicks offer a more premium and feature-loaded packaging. Some of the additional features available on all the other three cars include a sunroof, LED headlights, connected technologies, bigger touchscreen infotainment units and six airbags.
