2019 Nissan Kicks SUV deliveries to begin in January
Nissan India announced recently that it had begun dealer dispatches of the 2019 Nissan Kicks SUV. Deliveries will also begin this month with the formal launch taking place on January 22. Bookings for the new SUV already began in December, the booking amount being set at Rs 25,000.
Further, 500 buyers of the Kicks, which is being manufactured at Nissan's Chennai plant, also have the chance to watch the upcoming cricket world cup in England. These winners will be selected through a lucky draw.
Unlike the American-market Kicks, the India-spec Kicks is based on the MO platform, Renault-Nissan's lower-cost alternative for developing markets, and the same one on which the Nissan Terrano, Renault Captur and Duster are based.
The popular K9K 1.5-litre diesel and H4K 1.5-litre petrol, both only offered with manual gearboxes and as two-wheel drive, are available on the Kicks. The 1,461cc diesel makes 110PS at 3,850rpm and 240Nm at 1,750rpm, mated to a six-speed manual. The 1,498cc petrol produces 106PS at 5,600rpm and 142Nm at 4,000rpm, with a five-speed instead.
The Kicks also comes with a few segment-first features. These include the leather covered dashboard, and the 360-degree view camera. Other notable features are rain sensing wipers, cruise control, cornering lamps, a cooled glove box, Android/Apple integration for the infotainment, smartphone app integration with Nissan Connect, quilted leather seats, and standard climate control for all variants. Its safety equipment includes ABS, EBD, two airbags, hill start assist and traction control.
