So, Finally a resilient competitor in the segment of SUV has came in to the market . Now a days most of the car buyers preferring SUVs instead of Hatchback/Sedan . That's why many car makers are focusing on the compact SUV type designs and Nissan Kicks is one of them.
Nissan has given a sporty appearance to the car. Perfect & pretty chrome finish on the front adding class in the look of Nissan Kicks. And 17 inch alloy wheels looks pretty impressive.
Now coming to the interior, chocolaty coloured leather finish on the dash board & seats, leather wrapped steering & gear knob with chrome finish looks delightful in the cabin. 8 inch touch screen display with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay & 6 speakers are also available for your long trip entertainment. And 400 liter boot space on the back is more than enough for your bulky luggage.
Engine specifications :
Now going towards the engine specifications & variants, Nissan offers 1498 cc petrol & 1461 cc diesel engine, which can produce 104 bhp with 145 Nm peak torque & 108 bhp with 248 Nm peak torque respectively. Kicks petrol and diesel variants are giving standard mileage of 14.23 kmpl & 19.39 kmpl respectively. Petrol variants are available with 5 - speed manual transmission & diesel variants with 6 - speed manual transmission.
However, diesel engines are too noisy but the better insulation to the cabin can reduce the noise and won't allow it to penetrate in to the cabin. So, by considering this aspect Nissan has given extremely better insulation in its diesel variants.
While purchasing a car customer should not ignore the safety aspects. So, considering that aspects Nissan Kicks is fully loaded with the needed safety features like ABS with EBD, Break Assist, Vehicle Dynamic Control (same as stability control) & dual air bags. You can have 2 more air bags in its topper variant.
As per my personal experience, during the test drive i have checked breaking and stability control and it was comparatively better than the other available crossovers.
Extra Features :
Nissan has provided many advanced features like Cruise Control, Hill Start Assist, Day Time LED lights, Cornering Lights with Fog lamps & Rain sensing Wipers but the key feature which has been introduced first time in this segment is rear cameras with 360 degree around view monitor. You can use this feature while forward movement of the car in heavy traffic as well.
As we all know every product has their own pros & cons. So, coming to the cons,
1) Nissan Kicks is not available with 4 wheel drive variants but with the high ground clearance of 210 mm & very balanced suspension system, it won't disappoint you on off road ride.
2) Adjustments of seats are manual only, which could be electronic for better feature.
3) Adjustment of steering wheel is only tilt type, however telescopic adjustment is not there which could be uncomfortable for some users.
4) Individual door locking/unlocking knobs are missing. So individual passenger can not lock/unlock their door separately.
5) Automatic variants are not available so if you are not habited of manual transmission then it is not for you for now.
But these cons are ignorable, so if you are thinking about to buy this one the it is worth buying car.
