Recently, the carmaker rolled out the 2020 Nissan Kicks facelift with subtle cosmetic and feature upgrades. The biggest change made to the SUV is the new 156bhp, 1.3L, 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine with dual variable timing system. The new powertrain not only makes the new Kicks India’s most powerful petrol compact SUV, but higher torque at lower rpm and lower its emission levels as well.
The new gasoline motor comes with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed CVT automatic gearbox option. Compared to the existing CVTs, Kicks’s new X-tronic CVT unit is claimed to be 40% more efficient. The compact SUV is also available with the BS6-compliant 1.5L petrol engine that’s good for 106bhp and 142Nm. It can be had with a 5-speed manual gearbox only.
In coming months, the Japanese carmaker will introduced the all-new Nissan Magnite subcompact SUV. Based on the CMF-A+ platform, the model will be made available with a 71bhp, 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol and a 95bhp, 1.0L, 3-cylinder turbo petrol engines. There will be three gearboxes on offer – a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual and an X-Tronic CVT automatic.
