24 November 2016 - IndianAutosBlog
The Nissan Kicks had its Colombian debut at the 2016 Bogota Auto Show held earlier this month. Here are exclusive live images of the Nissan Kicks from the show, sent in by Sebastian Altamar.
The Nissan Kicks is based on the Nissan V-Platform that underpins the Nissan Sunny, Nissan Sentra, Nissan Note and even the all-new 2017 Nissan Micra. The V-Platform's key aspect is its versatility; it can accommodate customer requirements of all RHD and LHD global markets demanding diesel or petrol engines with Euro 3 to Euro 6 ratings without development or cost or any weight inefficiencies.
The Colombian-spec Nissan Kicks measures 4.29 metres (~4,290 mm) in length, 1.76 metres (~1,760 mm) in width and 1.59 metres (~1,590 mm) in height, and has a wheelbase of 2.62 metres (~2,620 mm). It packs the HR16DE 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 118 hp and 149 Nm of torque and can be paired to either a 5-speed manual transmission or the XTRONIC continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive drivetrain configuration is standard.
The Nissan Kicks will be available in two grades in Colombia: Sense and Advance. The Sense grade features roof rails, power mirrors, 4-speaker sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors (rear), ABS with EBD and dual-front airbags. The Advance grade adds LED daytime running lights, fog lamps, keyless entry, push-button start and 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay.
