    Nissan Kicks XV Pre (O) 1.5 D [2019] Review

    It’s a crossover built for city-dwellers to tackle everything the urban jungle can throw at it. Let’s take a look and see if the new Nissan Kicks is any good. 


    Introducing a new model in a fiercely contested segment is a tough task. But, aiming to take buyers away from heavyweights such as the Hyundai Creta or the Maruti Suzuki Brezza with a fairly lesser known badge is even harder. That’s the heroic task the new Nissan Kicks has taken upon itself as it shares showroom floor with popular crossovers. Unlike Nissan’s previous stab at this segment – the Terrano, which was basically a rebadged Renault Duster, the Kicks is an entirely new product. It’s a crossover built for city-dwellers to tackle everything the urban jungle can throw at it. Let’s take a look and see if it’s any good. 

    Design and style

    Let’s talk numbers first. The Kicks is over 4.3 metres long, 1.8 metres wide and 1.65 metres in height, meaning it’s noticeably longer and wider than the Hyundai Creta but not as tall. Its 2673mm wheelbase, too, is longer than the Hyundai. As for the ground clearance, the Kicks stands tall and above the rest, at 210mm. All in all, it’s looking good so far but what about the design?

    The production version retains the basic design cues taken from the Kicks concept first shown at the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show. You will find familiar Nissan design elements like the V-Motion grille, boomerang-style headlights and taillights, and the floating roof with a wrap-around look to the windscreen and side glass. With the C-pillar ‘hidden’ with a black finish that blends into the tailgate glass, it seems that the floating roof concept has been exaggerated on the Kicks, giving it a unique appearance when viewed from the rear. Speaking of the rear, it is arguably the best part of the exterior design as the extremely raked tailgate and the sharply-designed wraparound taillights are something that are new to this segment. For the India-spec model, Nissan has tinkered with a few things – unlike the Kicks that is sold overseas, the door sills on this car are actually part of the doors. Interestingly, Nissan says this redesign makes it easier to get in and out with traditional clothes.

    You may or may not like the contrasting roof colour or the steeply raked D-pillar, however, there is no denying that these design features make the Kicks stand out from the pack. All in all, the Kicks is a fairly good looking crossover. It might not be as flamboyant or in-your-face as the Ecosport but then it’s not as simple looking as the Creta either. Being the longest and widest in its class, the Kicks has a good deal of road presence as well, which is a big plus in this segment.


    As funky as the exterior is, the Kicks’ cabin is sophisticated in its design, surprisingly spacious and well finished for the most part. Unlike most new SUVs that seem to cram a lot of materials and switchgear on to their dashboard, the dash design in here is clean and straightforward. We especially like the simplicity of the centre console and the climate control panel. As for the quality, it’s a mixed bag. For starters, the middle part of the dash, door armrests and the middle armrest is covered in soft touch materials which lend a premium feel to the cabin. However, there are also shiny hard plastics on the door pads and the lower half of the dash. What affects the overall ambience further are the sheer number of old-design parts shared with existing Renault-Nissan products. The climate control panel, steering column mounted audio controls, cruise control switch and the window switches all come from the Duster and the Captur.

    As for space and comfort, the dashboard is set slightly high, but there is a kink on the window line which improves sideward visibility. The front seats are adequately large and the generous side bolstering does a good job of keeping you in place. The legroom and headroom are great, too. The second row, meanwhile, is equally supportive with a bench that offers adequate thigh support and a nicely contoured backrest. The Nissan’s extra width over its competitor’s pays dividends as you get more lateral support than most of its rivals and to top it off, the backrest angle is close to perfect as well. The Kicks also offers air vents at the back and cup holders in the armrest for added convenience.  

    The second-half of the cabin isn’t as practical as we would like – there is no 60:40 split option for the seats and the 400-litre boot is down on capacity compared to the Kicks sold overseas. Fortunately, the loading area is fully flat and squared out, meaning it’s easier to stuff heavy items.

    Safety and Equipment

    You pay a high price for the top-spec XV (O) version but then you also get a long list of equipment as standard. The Kicks gets an entirely new infotainment system that comes with a slick eight-inch display. The floating screen, in fact, is of high quality and the touch response is great as well. It’s also the most loaded in this segment – you get smartphone mirroring tech, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and built-in navigation. That said, our favourite feature is the surround camera view which uses four cameras to present a 360-degree view of the car. It’s something unheard of in this segment and inded, makes for a useful feature on every drive. This variant also gets LED projector headlights, functional roof rails with 100kg capacity, leather seats, climate control, automatic headlamps, automatic wipers, height adjustable driver’s seat and twin parcel shelf. In terms of safety, the Kicks comes with four airbags, ABS, EBD and speed sensing door locks as standard. 

    Engine, Performance and Braking

    For this road test we have the more popular diesel version of the Kicks which can be best described as ‘competent’. Nissan has continued with the tried and tested 1.5-litre K9K diesel motor. However, we would like to add that there is a vast difference in the way the Kicks and the Captur/Duster behave on the road.

    The Kicks and the Captur share the same engine which makes 110bhp/240Nm, but the level of refinement on the move is much higher with the former. The Kicks is significantly quieter thanks to better insulation and a more refined version of the same 1.5 motor – one can hardly hear the diesel clatter once the windows are up. What’s more, this new offering also accelerates in a more linear manner than the Captur when the motor is on boost. The engine feels more effortless in the mid-range than even the Creta’s 1.6-litre unit, however, there is still turbo lag under 2,000rpm, post which the Kicks pulls strongly till 4,000rpm. 

    There’s more than enough torque in the midrange to propel the Kicks through traffic without ever feeling like its engine is working too hard. In our acceleration and roll-on tests, the Kicks posted some quick numbers, hitting 100kmph from standstill in 11.66 seconds. It did 20-80kmph in third in just 6.79 seconds and took 8.76 seconds to accelerate from 40-100kmph in fourth, resulting in significantly quicker roll-on times compared to its rivals. To our surprise, even the clutch feel is different – it’s more precise and not too heavy. Speaking of the clutch, it’s paired to a slick-shifting six-speed manual gearbox that offers positive throws. The only downside, as we see it, is the lack of an automatic option for the diesel Kicks. 

    Ride and Handling

    We have said it before and the fact remains that the Nissan’s B0 platform vehicles including the Duster, the Captur and now the Kicks are tremendously capable when it comes to dealing with rough roads. Naturally, the Kicks behaves better over bad roads than its rivals – it simply hovers across ruts and small potholes without unsettling itself. Yes, it is slightly stiff compared to the Creta but the trade-off to this is better high speed poise when driving over undulated roads. Perhaps the most impressive bit is the way it rebounds quickly from any sharp bump you might encounter, regaining composure almost immediately. Unfortunately, the Kicks also suffers from the high speed steering judder that’s present in the Captur and the Duster. When taking corners at high speeds, the steering judders quite a bit, something that could be unnerving for some drivers.

    Price and Fuel Economy

    On-road prices for the Kicks start at Rs 11.20 lakhs for the base XL petrol trim, going all the way till Rs 17.64 lakhs for the top-spec XV Pre diesel that we have here. As for the all-important fuel efficiency, the diesel version returned 12.90kmpl in the city and 16.12kmpl on the highway under our testing cycle.

        • Engine & Transmission

          • Engine
            1461 cc, 4 Cylinders Inline, 4 Valves/Cylinder, DOHC

            Timely services will keep a motor efficient and in top shape.

          • Engine Type
            1.5 K9K dCi Diesel

            The official title given by the manufacturer in terms of the name of the engine, the displacement and the number of cylinders.

            A bigger displacement and more than four-cylinders generally indicate a performance-oriented engine.

          • Fuel Type

            All cars in India either run on petrol, diesel, CNG, LPG or electric power.

          • Max Power (bhp@rpm)
            109 bhp @ 3850 rpm

            Gives a good idea of the performance of the vehicle under full thrust. A higher figure here usually means a higher top speed as well.

            Higher the power, the peppier the engine but it can also affect fuel economy.

          • Max Torque (Nm@rpm)
            240 Nm @ 1750 rpm

            Relates to in-gear acceleration. A higher figure here means better roll-on acceleration, fewer gear shifts, and possibly better fuel efficiency.

            The more torque at low RPM range makes the engine feel more responsive. It also allows the engine to run smoothly without too many gear changes.

          • Mileage (ARAI)
            19.39 kmpl

            This is the maximum fuel efficiency that an engine gives. All numbers are provided by the manufacturer based on tests conducted and specified by the standards of the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India)

            Such fuel efficiency attained while driving in special conditions makes it unlikely to get it in real-world conditions

          • Drivetrain

            Cars come with different drivetrain configurations depending on the segment.

            Front-wheel drive (FWD) is most common in mainstream cars while expensive cars or SUVs come with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

          • Transmission
            Manual - 6 Gears

            Type of transmission used to transfer power from the engine to the wheels

            A manually operated transmission is the most popular type, thanks to its simplicity and low cost. Varied types of automatic transmissions are also available.

          • Turbocharger / Supercharger

            Manufacturers today offer turbochargers to boost engine power without affecting its fuel economy. Superchargers are found in more expensive cars but on the downside, they are not very efficient.

            Turbochargers are more effective but require plenty of heat management. Superchargers, meanwhile, offer linear bump in power but they are comparatively more complex.

        • Dimensions & Weight

          • Length
            4384 mm

            The length of the car decides its segment. In India, cars that are less than 4 metres in length enjoy reduced excise duties.

            • Length: 4384

            Longer length results in more cabin space. It also adds to straight line stability.

          • Width
            1813 mm

            A car's width is defined as its widest point without its mirrors.

            • Width: 1813

            Although more width gives you more lateral space inside the cabin, it makes the car more difficult to park in narrow spots.

          • Height
            1651 mm

            The height of the car denotes the highest point of the vehicle from the ground.

            • Height: 1651

            Taller the car, the more headroom there is on offer inside the cabin. However, a tall boy stance also affect the car’s centre of gravity which can cause more body roll.

          • Wheelbase
            2673 mm

            The space between the center of the front and rear wheels.

            • Wheelbase: 2673

            The longer the wheelbase, the more space there is inside the cabin.

          • Ground Clearance
            210 mm

            It’s the space between the lowest point of the car and the ground.

            Ground Clearance
            • Ground Clearance: 210

            If the car has a good amount of clearance, it’s easier for it to clear big speed breakers and overall, deal with bad roads.

          • Kerb Weight
            1387 kg

            The total weight of the vehicle with all the standard equipment and all the required fluids.

            A lightweight car will always be more efficient and easier to manoeuvre whereas a heavy car would give you a sense of solidity while driving.

        • Capacity

          • Doors
            5 Doors

            The number of doors define the category of car. For example – four door means sedan, two-door means coupe while five-doors usually refer to a hatchback, MPV or an SUV.

            • Doors: 5
          • Seating Capacity
            5 Person

            The number of people that can be seated comfortably in the car, which has also been mandated by the car manufacturer.

          • No of Rows
            2 Rows

            Smaller cars usually have two rows which can seat five, but some SUVs and MPVs have three rows and can seat around 7-8 passengers.

          • Bootspace
            400 litres

            Boot space defines how practical the car is with respect to how much luggage it can carry.

            • Bootspace: 400

            A boot with a large and wide opening is ideal for loading heavy items. Additionally, a lower loading height also makes it easy to put in luggage.

          • Fuel Tank Capacity
            50 litres

            The official volume of the fuel tank of a car, usually denoted in litres.

            If a car has a large fuel tank, it can cover long distances without refuelling.

        • Suspensions, Brakes, Steering & Tyres

          • Front Suspension
            Mcpherson strut with coil spring stabilzer bar & Double acting, Shock Absorber

            Almost all cars in India use an independent front suspension which is usually the MacPherson Strut type.

          • Rear Suspension
            Torsion Fleam with coil springs & Double acting, Shock Absorber

            The rear suspension can either be non-independent or independent.

            Most of the budget cars have non-independent suspension while the more expensive ones get independent rear suspension which offers better bump absorption.

          • Front Brake Type

            Most of the vehicles sold in India get ventilated or non-ventilated disc brakes upfront.

            - The ventilated discs are more popular thanks to them providing better stopping power and it also works well in hot conditions.

          • Rear Brake Type

            In affordable cars, drums brakes are fitted at the rear as they are cost effective.

            Disc setup at the rear is now getting more popular as cars are getting faster in the real world.

          • Minimum Turning Radius
            5.2 metres

            The official kerb-to-kerb minimum radius a car takes to complete a 180-degree turn.

            Shorter the turning radius, the lesser space you need to make a tight turn or to take a U-turn.

          • Steering Type
            Power assisted (Electric)

            Almost all steering systems in cars today have an assist to help park them better at low speeds - these can be hydraulic, electro-hydraulic or electric.

          • Wheels
            Alloy Wheels

            The wheels used on cars are either steel rims with plastic wheel cover hub or alloy wheels on higher spec models or expensive cars.

            Razor cut, or diamond cut alloy wheel design are not getting more popular. Manufacturers usually offer these in top-end trim of their car models.

          • Spare Wheel

            Important in a country with varying quality of roads, spare wheels ensure one doesn’t get stranded when one of the main tyres gets damaged.

            Select premium car models feature space savers (smaller than the stock wheels) to save on boot space.

          • Front Tyres
            215 / 60 R17

            The profile/dimension of rubber tyre that fits on the front wheels.

          • Rear Tyres

            Safer three-point seatbelts for passengers seated in the middle of the second row of seats.

            Budget cars are usually fitted with more economical lap belts for the middle-occupant.

          • Rear Middle Head Rest

            A headrest for the middle occupant of the second-row of seats.

            Budget cars are usually not offered with headrests for the middle occupant of the second-row to save on costs. Headrests are instrumental in reducing whiplash injuries in case of an accident

          • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

            A digital gauge that provides the live status of the air pressure in every tyre of a car.

            For accurate readings, ensure that the sensors on the rim are not tampered with during any wheel/tyre repairs

          • Child Seat Anchor Points

            Anchor points or strap systems built into car seats to keep child seats in place, especially during a crash

            ISOFIX is an international standard for child seat anchor points, but not all car manufacturers follow this standard

          • Seat Belt Warning

            Mandatory fitment in cars sold in India, emits loud beeps when it detects that occupants are not wearing their seatbelts.

            Seat belt warning is mandatory for front-seat occupants, but it is recommended that all occupants wear seat belts.

        • Braking & Traction

          • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

            An electronic system that prevents the tyres from locking and skidding in emergency braking situations by pulsing the brakes (quickly releasing and reapplying the brakes)

            ABS is a great accident prevention technology, allowing drivers to steer while braking hard

          • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)

            An electronic system that redirects braking forces among the four brakes to stop the car as quickly and stably as possible

          • Brake Assist (BA)

            A system that increases brake pressure to help the car stop quicker

            Even when emergency braking, it is observed that drivers don’t apply maximum brake pressure through the pedal, the BA system provides additional pressure to help stop the car quicker

          • Electronic Stability Program (ESP)

            System designed to improve car stability and control, especially when the car is accelerating.

            ESP or ESC cannot increase traction but rather improve control or help regain control in slippery conditions.

            Given the option, keep traction control on all the time.

          • Hill Descent Control

            A feature that limits the car's speed without any driver input while traversing down descents

          • Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

            This function prevents wheelspin and maximises traction by shuffling torque between wheels

            It is also a nifty safety feature since it offers more control over a vehicle's power delivery

          • Differential Lock

            Locking differentials split power/torque evenly among both tyres on an axle.

            In off-road vehicles, locking differentials allows for better traction when one of the wheels is in the air, in FWD/AWD cars allows for better corner traction and in RWD sports cars allows for drifting around corners.

        • Locks & Security

        • Great underrated vehicle with great build quality
          1. Buying experienced was good. 2. Awesome driving experienced, great handling, road grip. I also drive Creta BS6 through hilly areas in Meghalaya around 1000kms and recently I went to Raipur from Guwahati and drive my Kicks around 3500 kms, but I feel Kicks handling, suspension and drivability is better than Creta. 3. No doubt Kicks is a funky looking SUV presently available in Indian market. I really like it's side profile, bigger than is rivals. As far as performance is concerned I feel Kicks really made for highways and long tours. Good hilly performance. 4. Service and Maintenance cost is reasonable. 5. Pros: Handling, Drivability, high-speed stability, cornering ability, perfectly tuned suspension, diesel engine refinement, build quality, safety, cabin quality, music system is also good, Ac glove box, really good AC, class leading GC of 210mm Cons: Some interior ergonomic issues, no cup holders in front, music controls are behind the steering wheel. Verdict: If You love highway driving, long tours, drivability, stability, above some unnecessary features than you should definitely consider this vehicle above it's rivals.
