Nissan Kicks is the latest launch from the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese carmaker. This SUV comes with two engine options, one petrol and one diesel. The 1.5-litre petrol unit churns out a maximum power of 106 bhp and a peak torque of 142 Nm, while the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine can pump out 108 Bhp and 245 Nm. Only manual gearbox is available for both the engine variants. While the petrol engine is offered with a 5-speed manual transmission, the diesel engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. For the time being, the Nissan Kicks is on sale with discounts that can go up to Rs 1 lakh. Nissan has been offering decent discounts to push the worryingly low sales of the SUV. Last month, only 128 units of the Kicks were sold, which is even lower than what the Nissan Terrano could manage in June 2018.

With the new BSVI emission standard kicking in soon, it is likely that Nissan will put an end to the sale of the diesel-powered Kicks. For the time being, there is no plan for updating the existing 1.5-litre diesel engine of Nissan Kicks to meet the approaching emission norms. Probably, for that reason, ZoomCar has only included the petrol-powered variants of the Nissan Kicks in its subscription program.
