There you go! As usual, a watered down version of an 'existing platform' for cost savings. Like Indian customers don't already pay through their nose for pricey/over priced cars that Nissan thinks bringing the newer Platform on which Kicks is developed, cannot be afforded by us in India. Or whatever other reasons.

We pay sky high prices already. At least give us the latest and our monies' worth. When are we likely to see small SUVs go beyond the 90-105bhp power bracket, all around 6 airbags and latest platforms.

More than EcoSport, it will be targeted at S-Cross and I hope with this product Nissan will try to carve out a new niche for itself in Indian market, positioned below the Terrano. I am a bit unsure about expecting it taking position against the EcoSport.

After the launch of Renault's Captur in India, Nissan will launch its CUV, Kicks in early 2018.

Will the Indian Kicks be similar to the one in Latin America or will it again be watered down for Indian market? Either ways I expect them to place it alongside the Captur to make it a premium offering from Nissan.
