Nissan Kicks Crossover to challenge HR-V & C-HR
This new compact SUV is the newest small/light crossover from Nissan and it has only seen showroom duty in South America for now. It is produced on the Nissan V platform that underpins the Nissan Micra and Almera. This is why it has a very similar wheelbase at 2.61m. The Kicks is 4.30m long, 1.76m wide, 1.59m high and its luggage capacity is 432-litres.
In terms of its packaging, it is slightly more spacious (in terms of luggage and passenger room) than the popular Ford EcoSport and will challenge the Honda HR-V if Nissan decides to sell it here as a locally assembled model.
The V platform allows the Kicks to be extremely light at 1142kg. The Honda HR-V, which is also a very light crossover, weighs 1232kg. More news on its possible arrival will be shared.
