As we mentioned earlier, don’t expect the Nissan Kicks to come to India for at least another 12-15 months. Although a production spec model was showcased recently, it has left-hand drive. For India, the Japanese manufacturer will have to develop the right-hand drive variant first. Nissan Kicks will be the official car of the 2016 Olympics.

Nissan Kicks India – Exterior Design

Almost a year ago, Nissan showcased the Kicks concept. The production-spec model seen in the images here is nearly identical. The concept’s headlamps and tail lamps have given way to production spec units. It gets new alloys and some of the orange highlights around the bumper and grille area have been lost. Nissan’s now characteristic window line has been retained. And so has the dual tone paint scheme.
