2019 Nissan Kicks SUV: Variants explained
The Nissan Kicks SUV is set to be unveiled in India tomorrow, January 22. Unlike the American-market Kicks, the India-spec Kicks is based on the M0 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 avaiolble on the Kicks. The 1,461cc diesel makes 110PS@3,850rpm and 240Nm@1,750rpm, mated to a six-speed manual. The 1,498cc petrol produces 106PS@5,600rpm and 142Nm@4,000rpm, with a five-speed instead.
