Nissan India has officially opened bookings for the Kicks SUV. Dealers are now accepting bookings for ₹ 25,000 across showrooms in the country. Nissan India has also opened bookings online. The design and styling of the cabin, of the India-spec Kicks, are different from the global-spec Kicks that we reviewed earlier. The Nissan Kicks is based on the same Renault Duster/Captur or Nissan Terrano platform underneath but probably has the best looking body of the lot in terms of sheer design. And Nissan's Indian design studio had a lot to do with that too. It has SUV like butch design up front and in the rear and gets a large in-your-face grille too. All in all, the stance on the new Kicks is most certainly something that a lot of Indian buyers will appreciate - especially with those 17-inch wheels.
The SUV gets new dual tone black and brown interior, with matching upholstery, while a host of its cabin features and equipment appear to have been carried over from Nissan's partner brand Renault's Captur crossover.
The Nissan Kicks SUV will rival the likes of the Renault Captur and the Hyundai Creta
