They say, hit the iron when it is red hot. That’s what Nissan is just about to do. Prepared an EcoSport rival, the Japanese bike maker had built a compact SUV to hit the growing of market of such a segment in India, confirmed by a source. The vehicle will see similar dynamics and spec of the Kicks Concept that was unveiled in South America.
Under the bonnet, in its engine bay, no one else would dare to take the place of a famous K9K 1.5-litre diesel engine in the tune of 85PS and 110PS.
The designers of North and South America both have established a co-ordination to pen down this design. Overall, the vehicle poses character of a true-blue Nissan SUV with the prominent V-grille, aggressive front and rear fascias; but the edges have gone curvaceous to kick-in some shades of the hatchbacks as well. After all, the cars from this band break ice with hatchbacks majorly in the pricing.
However, the tail-gate mounted spare wheel is missing unlike the Ford EcoSport. If they wish to sell it in India in large numbers, such an add-on feels a ‘must’ for the market like us, that’s what is proven successful with the said model of Ford. And the length will go precisely under 4-metres for deriving the tax-benefits.
