As the official car, the Kicks makes a début for our consumers in the country—it will also be the first public display of the vehicle in India.”
The Kicks, which will be likely launched in India next month, will be the company’s flagship SUV, embodying the new global design language of company vehicles—a floating roof design created by blacked out pillars, roof rails and LED DRLs, shark fin antenna, front fog lamps and door-mounted ORVS with indicators. It also gets the V-motion grille, a signature motif in Nissan’s design language. It is 4,384mm long, 1,813mm wide, has a height of 1,656mm, and its wheelbase is 2,673mm, and it will directly compete with vehicles such as Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and the upcoming Tata Harrier.
