Review and details of nissan kicks


Specifications and features of nissan kick

Nissan India launched the Kicks SUV in India in January 2019. Globally, the Kicks is built on the Micra platform but for India, Nissan will be manufacturing the Kicks on the Renault Duster’s M0 platform but with a few updates. Without a doubt, the new Kicks is a looker! We really like its sharp, upright styling with edgy lines. The V-shaped grille with a thick chrome border and those sweptback headlamps give the Kicks a rather stylish appearance. Viewed in profile, the crossover stance with the contrast roof and sleek body add a youthful and a sporty demeanor to the SUV. The 17-inch alloys along with a ground clearance of 210 mm add that SUV flair to the overall crossover-like stance. The Kicks also gets a whole bunch of features starting with the LED projector headlamps, which light up the roads very well in the dark. The headlamps are automatic and the fog lamps up front also light up at corners. Step inside and you see the sumptuous leather upholstery all around the cabin which oozes premium-ness. There is a lovely 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers smartphone integration in the form of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is auto climate control on offer along with cruise control as well. In terms of safety and driver assists, Nissan offers 4 airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, hill start assist and a first-in-segment 360 degree camera view too.
