The Nissan Kicks SUV, which made its worldwide introduction in 2016 in Brazil will be propelled in India in the third quarter of 2018. It will be based on the upcoming Renault Kaptur’s platform. This is a modified version of Renault’s proven M0 platform that underpins cars like the Duster and Lodgy, which are known for their robust mechanicals.
The M0 is additionally a basic piece of the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s stage technique in India, which is basically revolved around two stages. While the CMF-A and CMF-A+ stages support Renault and Nissan’s (and later Mitsubishi’s) little to average size car range in India, the M0 stage will take into account higher finished results. The minimal effort M0 stage has turned out to be a cash cow for Renault internationally and is in a perfect world suited for business sectors like India.
Both the Kaptur and kicks will use the same modified version of the platform, the “top hats” will entirely different. The kicks design and styling will be same as the South American car.
Regarding the design and styling part, it is sharply styled, with lots of distinctive design touches like a floating roof, massive wheel arches and a wraparound visor look, the kicks won’t have a problem on Indian roads. Important thing is that the edgy design has not compromised practicality and Nissan claims that it has a good space in the back seat.
The cars that are based on the M0 platform comes with a choice of two engines, a 1.6 petrol and the vulnerable 1.5 K9K diesel and therefore these are liable to be carried forward into the kicks as well. The 1.5 diesel is anticipated to be the mainstay but it’s liable that in its latest and current version there will be a bump up in power and torque.
Nissan has set an aggressive focus of 30,000 Kicks in its first entire year of generation with an extra 20,000 units reserved for fares. Estimating will be pivotal for the Kicks’ prosperity and Nissan may do well to undermine its opponents to get some truly necessary piece of the overall industry.
