Many many congratulations Sahil!! Enjoy your ride and drive safely.

I got my Stallion yesterday after the 1st service. I must say they did a decent job with limited resources at hand, the car was gleaming. I wanted them to install the original roof rails but due to the absence of the expert (he lives in the red zone) they could not do it. But I was promised that as soon as he's back, they will get it installed. Full marks to the team.

Hi Sahil! Congratulations on your new ride.
One of my friends is also looking for similar kind of deal in a BS4 diesel vehicle. Please let me know if you find another one like it. He is looking at Ecosport Diesel BS6 for now.

Thanks Buntee90

Sure, I will let you know in case I come across such a deal. Meanwhile, you can check with dealers in Chandigarh. By the way, which city he is looking in?

How I wish Nissan would give us the 1.7 DCI Diesel engine in the Kicks! Developed ground up by the alliance in 2018, it is a modern 4 cylinder 16 valve turbo diesel, that develops 150 HP and 320NM and gets even a larger and heavier car like the Nissan Qashqai to 0 to 100 km-h in around 9.5 seconds. In the lighter Kicks, it would probably achieve that in 8.5 seconds. It is natively Euro-6 compliant and can be mated to a 6 speed manual or XTronic CVT and can be had with 4wd gear as well. The beast can tow up to 2000 kg! The engine is supposed to be very refined and quiet and is a modern diesel developed recently, after the dust settled and lessons were learnt from Dieselgate. While many major auto companies like Toyota and VW just simply stopped making new diesels, Nissan and Ford continue to make brand new Diesel engines from ground up.

Lol. Really? You are expecting this kind of progress from Nissan or even Renault.

Do you know we didn't even know that the Duster parked in the Renault hall in Auto Expo was 1.3L turbo petrol.

That itself was a huge shock to us.

Expecting the 1.7L DCI engine from them is like expecting the mountain to move over the mole hill.

A brand struggling in the market can't make such huge decisions. The 1.3L Tce itself is a step in the right direction and pleasant to see.

Baby steps as they call it.

I got an opportunity to take my Kicks to the Sambhar lake, around 80kms away from Jaipur. It is just breeze to drive on the highways. Midway through the trip I realized that Eco mode was on. After switching it off it just wallowed through the highways. It tackled the bad roads on District roads with aplomb.
Used cruise control too and it was convenient to say the least. However, need to test it once the traffic on the highways gets normal.
Some pics from the trip:

Nice clicks of your Kicks Sahil. I feel the switching on the Eco-mode just reduces the Air conditioning and it has nothing to do with engine or performance . Thankfully in the new Kicks they have removed this gimmicky feature and used that switch for Idle start-stop system which I feel is more useful.

Although Eco-mode might reduce fuel consumption, we could do that directly with AC controls, why waste a switch and call it Eco-mode.

Thank you.
I noticed at the end of my trip that Eco mode was switched on by me inadvertently. The Eco mode ON signal on the meter isnít noticeable, so ended up the whole trip with Eco mode on. With Eco mode off the AC is really good.

Hi, I thought yours is an XV Diesel, does it have cruise control? From what I remember, only the XV Premium and Premium(O) had cruise control in the BSIV range (it is the same in the new BSVI line up as well). Perhaps yours is an XV-Pre?

Yes BS4 XV configuration is now XV Premium in BS6. There was no XV Pre (O) in BS4.
, The top end was XV Premium earlier. So BS4 XVs have Cruise control.

The variant rejig happened somewhere around August last year with the introduction of new base variant XE. Subsequently, XV Premium (O) became XV Premium and XV Premium became XV and so on.

When you say 'wallowed' , is it a compliment ?

How are its highway manners ? This SUV seems to tick a lot of boxes at this price point.

I could be interested in the petrol version by the year end. Maybe I should even start looking for a sparingly used pre-worshipped Kicks.

Yes I meant it as a complement.
The highway manners are really good. Its stable at high speeds. I was concerned about it being underpowered on the highways but my fear was allayed with my first drive on the highway. It never felt underpowered! However, I have not driven the Petrol version.
Also, if you are looking to buy at the end of this year, you can take a look at the newly launched turbo petrol too. I think by the end of this year you can get some good discounts on the vehicle.

A walk-around video of the 1.3 turbopetrol XV Variant (in Malayalam). The guy does not say which variant it is throughout the video and only clarifies later in the comments.
