Nissan Motor India on Wednesday informed that its new Nissan Kicks SUV will be launched soon in India, and it will feature the most powerful engine in its class, the Nissan Turbo and Nissan’s widely-acclaimed X-Tronic CVT. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown the brand decided to postpone the launch.
According to Nissan, the new 2020 Kicks will be powered by the HR13 DDT 1.3-litre four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine, which can deliver 156 PS of power and 254 Nm of torque. As said by the company the HR13 DDT engine also uses the cylinder coating technology, which is borrowed from the Nissan GT-R’s engine and it boosts the efficiency of the engine and offers higher fuel efficiency and performance.
Rakesh Srivastava, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India, said, “The all-new Nissan KICKS 2020 is built with Japanese engineering and technology and has high build quality with purposeful and intelligent technology with class-leading premium-ness. The New Nissan KICKS is powered by best-in-class turbo engine and best-in-class X-Tronic CVT offering higher fuel economy and acceleration.”
The company also added that this model will be a complete vehicle package with an exceptional combination of intelligent technology and class-leading premiumness. Can’t wait to hear more so stay tuned.
