Nissan has finally launched its new compact SUV, the Kicks, in India at a starting price of Rs 9.55 lakh. The Kicks will help the Japanese carmaker compete in the popular compact SUV segment that’s led by the Hyundai Creta. It will also compete with its Renault cousins, the Duster and Captur.

The new Nissan Kicks is offered in four variants - XL, XV, XV Premium and XV Premium + - which are priced as follows:

Rs 12.49 lakh

The Nissan Kicks is available with a set of 1.5-litre engines. The petrol motor produces 106PS of power and 142Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is paired with a 6-speed manual and puts out 110PS and 240Nm. The ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of the petrol engine is 14.23kmpl while the diesel offers 19.39/20.45kmpl.

In terms of safety features, the Kicks comes with dual-front airbags, rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD and brake assist, and front seatbelts with pretensioners and load limiters as standard. The rearview camera is offered from the XV variant onwards, while the top-spec XV Premium + variant also gets a 360-degree camera, front side airbags, rear fog lamps, ESP, traction control and hill hold assist.

As far as comfort and convenience enhancing features are concerned, the Nissan Kicks offers cruise control and climate control with rear AC vents as standard. Some of the features on offer include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, rain-sensing wipers, cornering front fog lamps and LED projector headlamps. It also gets a front armrest as standard, along with bits of chrome accents on the inside door handles and parking brake lever.

Much of the Kicks’ appeal lies in the appearance of the compact SUV, which is offered in seven colours. In addition to that, the top-spec variant is offered with a choice of four dual-tone colour options as well. Nissan is also offering three styling packages called the ‘Essential’, ‘Style’ and ‘Urban’ for additional touches to the interior and exterior of the Kicks compact SUV. These include decals, steering wheel covers, ambient lighting, seat covers, floor mats and more.

Nissan is also offering a 3-year warranty, 3-year 24x7 roadside assistance (RSA) and a 3-year service maintenance package at no extra cost. Nissan claims this will offer 2-3 per cent additional value against the Kicks’ competition. It will also be offered via a subscription plan, further details for which will be available soon.

The Nissan Kicks will also face competition from the Maruti S-Cross as well as the upcoming 2019 KIA SP concept-based SUV. Later in 2020, it will even compete with Skoda’s made-for-India SUV as well as the Volkswagen T-Cross.
