I am aware of Shahwar nissan, seems to be the better rated of dealers.

One question for you? Do you regret buying Kicks now seeing what’s on offer with Kia Seltos? Not trying to question your purchase but just curious to know your opinion.

No i don’t regret the purchase of kicks(petrol) till now. I like it’s comfortable ride and how it rides the uneven roads. It is good in city as well with not many gear shifts for example in Gurgaon traffic. Still need to see nissan service quality. I think Seltos would have been out of my budget if launched when I purchased. Also i needed the car early in April time frame.

The family of 'FLOPS' - Kicks again beaten by Terrano in June sales numbers. Captur continues its dismal run, the ageing Duster still is the leader of the pack in June sales.

Kicks - 128
Captur - 103

Terrano - 132
Duster - 882

Kicks for me was a decent product if not great but Nissanís lacklustre performance in India made sure that Kicks is dead even before people took notice of it.

Nissan Dealers at the moment are not confident investing in kicks hence its evident from June numbers that Nissan is going down hill with numbers getting shrunk under 2k. Hope itís not going to be another General Motors for our country.

With Seltos knocking on our doors with some exciting features itís surely going to make Kicks a dull product no matter how much they highlight that itís an official product for ICC Cricket World Cup.

Curtains for Nissan if Terrano is doing more numbers than Kicks and Captur.

Renault - Nissan better consolidate their dealerships and service centers in India. That way, the dealerships can look for some volumes at least. They have Mitsubishi under their belt which has a good brand equity and that should be leveraged.

Given what is happening between Renault and Nissan at HQ level, I reckon they wont consolidate.

India must be different from other Asian markets for these Japanese companies to perform so poorly.

Mitsubishi, Nissan, Isuzu (even Toyota and Honda) have a much bigger presence in East Asia.

I wonder why!

But Hyundai started with Santro which can be bought by common man due to the price range. Hence more people had first hand ownership experience, hence more visibility and hence more mouth publicity. By the time other companies joined the small/premium hatchback game, they were perceived as cheap and did not click in the market.

Even though the service costs of most companies have come down due to increased localisation, people still believe in the cheapest service costs of Maruti. I was pleasantly surprised when the service costs for my Honda City was less than what we paid for our WagonR to get serviced.

I am not very surprised. The Terrano when placed next to the Kicks looks bigger, better and more butch IMO. So when someone zeroes in on either one of them and walks into a showroom, there is every chance of being more impressed with the Terrano when compared with the Kicks.

The Terrano just feels like a huge SUV from the driver's seat!. The Kicks has a few more gizmos, but costs more! As it is both are overpriced!

What the kicks needs is a kick downwards in pricing. Bring it under 10 Lakhs for a decently equipped mid variant diesel and it will start to get some life in sales numbers. I checked one out parked in our street yesterday cursorily, the fit and finish and paint quality is actually looks quite good and one would be hard pressed to guess that it is a actually a Duster in a new suit. Give it the AWD asw ell and it would actually be quite a good proposition.

I spent some time with the Kicks (a few days) and I struggle to see why this car does not sell. It has looks, features, ride, space sorted. It even gives good fuel economy. Yet it is not selling.

This is really unfortunate for Nissan that even their latest attempts are going in vain.
