The company had revealed the exteriors of the upcoming Nissan Kicks a few weeks back in India. The vehicle gets a V-motion grille up front, along with sweptback headlamps and LED DRLs. The 17-inch alloy wheels along with the floating roof design are other key elements that contribute to making the Kicks a good looking car with a character. Technical specifications of the Nissan Kicks are yet to be revealed and these will be announced during the time of launch. The Kicks is expected to share the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine with the Terrano with similar power and torque figures. The new Kicks might also get an optional automatic gearbox.

The new Nissan Kicks is expected to be launched in India at a starting price of close to Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV will primarily rub shoulders with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster in the segment. More details on the new Nissan Kicks to be revealed soon, so stay tuned for all the updates! Moreover, we have already driven the Nissan Kicks in Dubai sometime back and will be trying it out on the Indian roads very soon, so don't forget to catch all the action.
