The Nissan Kicks, Indian Spec, has finally kicked in the Nissan Renault Production plant in Chennai. The launch is scheduled for sometime in January 2019 and the showcasing ceremony will be held a month before that. The five seater SUV is a serious rival of the Harrier manufactured by Tata. Arun Kumar, automobile enthusiast, has provided the photos of the car.
The body structure and design is built in order to ensure superior safety and elegant smoothness. The Graphine material used for the body is known for Gravity Philic Energy Absorption which neutralizes the impact energy of the car. The sole credit for its design goes to the Nissan Design Centre. 4384 mm in length, 1813 mm in width and 1656 mm in height are its dimensions, which proves it to be larger than the global spec. The wheelbase will be 2673 mm with a ground clearance of 200 mm.
The V-motion grille, sweptback headlamps, boomerang shaped LED DRLs and a wide central airdam adorns the exterior of the Kicks, along with silver chin spoiler, extended cladding. The floating roof is designed in a contrasting colour scheme. The 17 inch twin 5 spoke wheels are guarded with 215/60 section rubber tyres. There will also be a rear bumper with diffuser, decorated with a sculpted tailgate and LED taillamps. The interior will be spacious enough.
The engine options will be the same as the Nissan Terrano, petrol as well as diesel. The petrol engine will be a 1.6 liter, 4 cylinder one, capable of developing 103 bhp power and 245 Nm torque. It will be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission system or a CVT might be a game. 84 bhp and 108 bhp are the power output options for the 1.5 liter diesel engine, paired with either a 6 speed manual or AMT options. Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier are both waiting in anticipation for its launch in 2019.
