Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross rivalling Nissan Kicks booking has commenced across India
Nissan is gearing up to launch the all-new Kicks SUV in India. Nissan Kicks booking is now open at Rs 25,000, across the country ahead of its scheduled next month launch. Also, the buyers can book it online as well. The Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross rivalling SUV is a piece worth waiting. This SUV will play a key role in the brand’s growth strategy in India.
Nissan has been in business in India for a quite long time. However, it couldn’t fetch a satisfactory sales result like its global partner Renault. Now, in a desperate attempt to salvage the lacklustre sales performance, Nissan India is focusing on premium and appealing models. The Nissan Kicks is a part of that strategy only. Interestingly, the India-spec Nissan Kicks comes offering more premiumness compared to the global model.
The Nissan Kicks booking could raise the eyebrow of the rivals. It has been designed keeping the demands of Indian customers in mind. This model is based on the B0 architecture that underpins Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano. Apart from a fluid and muscular design, the SUV also features a host of premium features. It gets signature V-shaped front grille with chrome trim, LED projector headlamps, sculpted bumper etc. The skid plates, side scuff plates, large alloy wheels, black cladding boosts its visual appeal and practicality.
Inside the cabin, there is a tab-like 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Nissan Connect, flanked by a multifunction steering wheel. The SUV offers generous space and comfort to the occupants. There are features like 360-degree camera, climate control, cruise control, rain sensing wipers etc. Speaking about the safety features too, this SUV is well equipped. So far, Nissan has left no stones unturned when it came to making the Kicks SUV impressive and alluring.
No Automatic Transmission?!
Nissan Kicks SUV comes available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The SUV gets a tried and tested 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel motor as well. It gets a 5-speed manual gearbox initially. Expect an automatic unit to be introduced later.
