Nissan Kicks has a length of 4295 mm.
The Indian division of Nissan has posted a teaser of a compact crossover Kicks. The eponymous model has been available in Brazil, Mexico and China, but the Indian car will be different: she will get the chassis of the Duster and will get bigger.
Compact crossover the Nissan Kicks has a length of 4295 mm is only a few inches shorter than the Qashqai. But positioned Kicks below: it is based on a simple platform V, which is used on the models Nissan Note and Pulsar present generations. Drive these SUV front exclusively, and the only motor – aspirated 1.6-liter.
Crossover, production of which is planned to start in of India, mostly to keep the appearance of their fellows. Although judging by the teasers, there will be differences: some contours of the front bumper and elongated horizontal taillights. As representatives of Nissan have promised that the Indian Kicks will be larger than its international counterpart.
The most important thing, that the technical stuffing will be completely different. For the Indian market Kicks translate onto the platform B0, which is the basis of Renault Duster. From a technological point of view this is a justified step: India has produced several models on this platform – crossovers Renault Duster, Renault Captur and Nissan Terrano and the Renault Lodgy compact MPV.
Earlier, the Renault-Nissan Alliance have “transplanted” an existing model on the platform B0. It is for this recipe made the crossover Renault Kaptur for the Russian market – the European Renault Captur looks combined with proven technology from the Duster. Now the release of such vehicles established outside of the Russian Federation – in Brazil and India.
Apparently, the Nissan Kicks for the Indian market will be equipped with 1.5-liter gasoline engine H4K with a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT and 1.5-liter K9K turbo diesel engine with six-speed “mechanics”. All-wheel drive, although this option is laid out in the design of the platform.
