Nissan is prepared to introduce its upcoming flagship SUV in India. With the new launch, Nissan India believes that it might revive its dying business in the Indian market.
Nissan Kicks was officially revealed in India in October. So, we have the official images of its exterior. As of now, there are no spy photos of its interior or features. Although, photos of many test mules in different colour options have surfaced online recently.
Meanwhile, as per our dealer sources, the official bookings for Kicks SUV will commence from December 10. However, some dealerships have started accepting a token of Rs 51,000 for unofficial bookings of the SUV.

The launch of Nissan Kicks is scheduled in mid-January 2019. As per reports, the first batch of deliveries will start off from the end of January 2019. Media and promotional events are likely to be held by the end of this month.
Nissan India showcased the exteriors of Kicks at an event. We get the international-spec Kicks, without any design changes. The biggest change comes in the dimensions, according to which, India-spec Nissan Kicks is bigger than the international one.
Based on the exteriors, we can confirm some of its highlights. It gets full LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs, electric ORVMs with integrated turn signals, roof rails, shark fin antenna and diamond-cut alloy wheels. Nissan’s trademark V-Motion grille completes the sporty look.
Based on the recent leaks and speculations, we have an idea of some of its features. Nissan Kicks might come with a segment-first 360-degrees camera, telematics Smartwatch, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard fitments and a semi-digital instrument cluster with GPS navigation on the cluster.
Other than that, it will come with features such as projector headlamps, cruise control, Auto-Climate control and touchscreen infotainment system.
Most likely, Nissan Kicks will borrow its engine from Nissan Terrano. It will use a 1.6 Litre petrol engine and a 1.5 Litre K9K diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 110 BHP and 150 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine makes 108 BHP and 250 Nm of peak torque.
For transmission purposes, Kicks will rely on a 5-speed manual with an option of CVT for the petrol variant. For diesel, it may use a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Nissan Kicks will lock horns with the likes of Renault Captur, Mahindra Scorpio and Hyundai Creta. It is likely to be placed at the high-end of this segment.
