Nissan Kicks would be launched soon in the Indian market. The Japanese manufacturer has already started taking official bookings for the all-new Kicks and the delivery would start by the end of January 2019.
The Kicks is a much awaited SUV and comes with the best-in-class features. How? Well, Nissan has loaded the vehicle to the brim with new-age features and there is no other car in the segment that can match Kicks when it comes to features.
1. All-LED projector headlamps
The Nissan Kicks offers best-in-class LED projector headlamp. They are designed in such a way that the throw of the light is extremely wide and driving at night becomes a breeze. The sleek, full-LED projector headlamps work effortlessly at the night to offer a safe driving environment.
2. Premium interiors
The all-new Kicks offers an extremely premium interior and it is difficult to distinguish the price segment of the vehicle. The car gets full cover, soft-touch leather on the dashboard that offers extremely cosy seating.
3. 360-degree camera
The 360-degree camera is an extremely helpful device, especially while spending time in the city traffic. The 360-degree shows a bird’s eye view of the vehicle with a direct feed from the external cameras. The picture displays on the infotainment system and looks like a bird’s eye view. There are three various modes through which the 360-degree cameras can be set-up.
4. Standard Auto AC
The Nissan Kicks would be a premium offering and to attract the customers, Nissan is offering quite a few standard features like the Automatic air conditioning system across all the variants of the Kicks.
The Indian version of the Nissan Kicks is much bigger than the European version of the vehicle. All the extra dimensions translate into bigger cabin space. The Nissan Kicks offer much more shoulder room and rear knee room space in the segment. It means that the rear passengers would be as comfortable as the front ones.
6. 8.0-inch infotainment
The Nissan Kicks is designed for the young customers and gets such features too. The car gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with modern connectivity options like the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new-age infotainment system connects with the smartphones without any problem and offers expansive details on the screen.
7. Top-notch safety
Apart from offering regular features like ABS+EBD, airbags and more, Nissan Kicks also offer Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with the Kicks. It is an advanced system that keeps the vehicle in control by either using the brakes of the vehicle or by accelerating whenever required. It can keep the whole vehicle under control and prevent accidents by correcting various driving errors like oversteering.
8. Fuel efficient driving with ECO mode
The Nissan Kicks would offer both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine would be the 1.5-litre H4K engine and the diesel motor would be the tried and tested 1.5-litre K9K engine. While both these engines are quite efficient and powerful, the Nissan Kicks offer a dedicated “Eco” drive button. This button is very useful while driving in the city conditions or over long distances. This mode ensures that the Nissan SUV becomes even more fuel efficient and returns a maximum number of kilometres for every litre of fuel.
9. Least turning radius
The Nissan Kicks is quite large in size and offers a generous amount of cabin space. In fact, the Indian version of the Kicks is much larger than the version sold in the European countries. Even so, the Nissan Kicks offers a best-in-class turning radius of 5.2 m, which ensures ease of driving even in tight places. The low turning radius ensures that the vehicle moves easily even in the small spaces like the city driving conditions. This is why the Kicks is as a fun-to-drive car inside the city limit as it is on the highways.
10. Best-in-class ground clearance
The Nissan Kicks offer very wide dimensions and SUV look. It also gets a high ground clearance of 210mm, which is highest in the segment. The high ground clearance keeps the Nissan Kicks clear of any obstacles or high speed breakers.
