The India-bound Nissan Kicks entered production at the Nissan Aguascalientes A1 plant in Mexico last month and now it has been launched in the country. The Toyota C-HR-rival has been priced from 283,900 pesos (INR 10,04,566.86)
The Nissan Kicks is available in Mexico in three grades: Sense, Advance and Exclusive. The Sense grade is equipped with features like 4-speaker sound system, 60:40 split second-row seats, front airbags, ABS with EBD and BA. The Advance grade’s highlights are LED signature lamps, foglamps, automatic headlights and parking sensors.
The Advance grade’s key aspects are auto AC, leather front seats, TFT display for the instrument panel, leather seats, leather-wrapped gearshift knob, 7-inch infotainment system with navigation and NissanConnect, sound system with four speakers and two tweeters, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Integrated Dynamic-control Module (IDM), Active Trace Control (ATC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Around View Monitor (AVM).
The Nissan Kicks is powered by the HR16DE 1.6-liter gasoline engine that produces 118 hp at 6,300 rpm and 110 lb.-ft. (149.14 Nm) of torque. This naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit, also found in the Nissan Juke, can be had with a 5-speed manual transmission or the XTRONIC continuously variable transmission. The South American-spec Nissan Kicks is based on the Nissan V platform, while the India-spec Nissan Kicks (codename: Nissan Nissan PB1D) will reportedly be underpinnned by the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-B platform.
