Nissan's BS-VI upgraded SUV Kicks comes with an HR13 DDT engine, which borrows cylinder coating technology from Nissan GTR for fuel efficiency and enhanced performance with 156ps of power and 254Nm of torque. The turbo engine boasts Dual Variable Timing system, which provides higher torque at low rpm and reduces emissions. The carmaker also claims that the new X-Tronic CVT is 40 per cent more efficient than existing CVTs.
The 2020 variant of Kicks is available in six single colour options - Blade Silver, Bronze Grey, Night Shade, Fire Red, Deep Blue Pearl and Pearl White; and three dual-tone colour options: Fire Red with Onyx Black, Bronze Grey with Amber Orange and Pearl White with Onyx Black.
2020 Nissan Kicks' base XL and XV variants come with an updated 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, which produces 105bhp and 142Nm of peak torque with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The new SUV's mid and top-spec variants get its power through a 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine which, the company claims, offers a power output of 156bhp and 254Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired to either a standard manual gearbox or the company's new X-Tronic CVT transmission unit.
