Nissan’s small size SUV kicks had its global entry in 2016 and it was first introduced in 2014, based on 2012 Nissan Extreme. At that time it was made to launch only in the Brazilian market and later it was supplied to the rest of the markets. We have always told you that Nissan is going to launch this SUV in India and now the company has stamped our estimates and the Nissan XC compact SUV is to be launched in India in December this year. This statement of the company is going to be a hassle for Indian compact SUV segment vehicles.
Kicks 2012 is based on Nissan Extreme. The internationally sold Nissan kicks SUV is built on the company’s VV platform, but we believe that the SUV launched in India will be made on the MO platform. The Falatoform is also made on the Falatoform along with Reno’s Duster and Lodi Captor. Parts of these cars have also been shared with the platforms used in the above cars. There is no need to set up an assembly line separately for the Nissan kicks SUV in India. Nissan is going to equip this car with more and more indigenous parts, which will reduce the cost of SUVs.
The first was made to launch just in the Brazilian market. It is anticipated that the new compact SUV kicks will be engineered with models of Renault being sold at the moment, which can be supplied with a diesel of 1.5-liter 9 and a 1.6-liter petrol engine along with the SUV. The company has updated the car’s style and design significantly, with 7-inch intonation systems, automatic climate control and parking and other features such as 4 cameras with similar features. The price of this car will be slightly higher in the company’s car lineup and it will occupy the SUV at the bottom of the Tereno. In India it will be competed with Hyundai Crata, Mahindra XUV500 and the rest of this segment.
