Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Both SUVs are India-bound.

In the Brazilian market, the Nissan Kicks went on sale last year, while the Renault Captur arrived just last month. Here are the two SUVs parked side-by-side in images published by Carsale.
