Kick -Ass

When I come across any vehicle that calls itself an SUV I am tempted to take it on the road less travelled just to test it out whether it is a worthy SUV or not, even though it may not have any four wheel drive.

When I come across any vehicle that calls itself an SUV I am tempted to take it on the road less travelled just to test it out whether it is a worthy SUV or not, even though it may not have any four wheel drive. The same was with the Nissan Kicks I got to drive in the expansive terrains of the Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. I could drive as fast as I could, brake as hard as I could, or overcome any hurdle as I wanted and enjoy as much as I desired.

The new Nissan Kicks built on the Renault Duster platform is a good looking vehicle (remember companies like Renault, Mitsubishi and Nissan are real brothers in the world of automobiles).

EXTERIOR DESIGN AND FEATURES

From the front, the dual tone vehicle looks bold and purposeful with its V motion mesh grille, wide bumpers, front under guard, LED projector lamps, cornering fog lamps, DRLs and the boomerang-shaped LED signature lamp. The vehicle comes with rain sensing wipers.

As you move to the side, you get to see the floating roof rack design which brings out the smart element in this vehicle. On both sides are the aspheric ORVMs to reduce blind spots. Not to be missed is the shark fin antenna. The SUV sits on 215/60 R17 tyres fitted on machined alloy wheels. The side mouldings and smart wheel arches add to the beauty of the side profile. You also notice that the doors in this vehicle fully cover the bottom area.

As you move to the back, the design element continues to remain exciting with wide bumpers, skid plate and the iconic boomerang shaped LED signature lamps.
