    Along with the ARAI-rated fuel-efficiency figures for the 106hp and 156hp Kicks, we’ve now got the variants and features on offer as well.

    UPDATE:

    Nissan India has just confirmed the below engine-gearbox options, specifications, variants and features that will be available with the BS6 Kicks at launch. In addition, the Japanese carmaker has also revealed that the Kicks will be available in a total of six exterior colour options - Blade Silver, Night Shade, Bronze Grey, Fire Red, Pearl White and Deep Blue Pearl. The range-topping Kicks XV Premium (O) variant will also get three dual-tone colour options - Bronze Grey with Amber Orange, Fire Red with Onyx Black, and Pearl White with Onyx Black.

    The standard warranty package on the BS6 Nissan Kicks will be a 2-year/50,000km pack that can be extended up to five years for a premium. A 2-year roadside assistance package will also be offered as standard.

    It was just a couple of days ago that Nissan India confirmed that the BS6 Kicks was due to launch soon, and that it would get a new 156hp, 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine. Now, new details have emerged about the 2020 Kicks, including the ARAI-rated mileage, the variants on offer and what features each Kicks variant will come with.

    As we had reported earlier, the likable k9k diesel engine has been discontinued and as a result, the BS6 Kicks gets the 106hp, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and the new 156hp, 1.3-litre turbo-petrol unit. Incidentally, the turbo-petrol engine was showcased in the Renault Duster at Auto Expo 2020 and is expected to arrive not long after the Kicks BS6. In total, the 2020 Kicks will be available with three powertrain options - the 1.5 petrol-MT, 1.3 turbo-petrol-MT and 1.3 turbo-petrol-CVT. The 7-step CVT automatic in question is a new gearbox that has eight simulated ratios when put in manual mode. While the ARAI-rated mileage of the CVT has yet to be revealed, the 1.5 petrol-manual and 1.3 turbo-petrol-manual are rated at 13.9kpl and 15.8kpl, respectively.

    Unlike the outgoing BS4 petrol model, the BS6 Kicks comes in XL, XV, XV Premium and XV Premium (O) variants. The 1.5 petrol engine is only available in the entry-level XL and the mid-spec XV trims. Nissan offers the turbo-petrol with manual and automatic options in XV and XV Premium variants, but the top-spec XV Premium (O) is only offered in manual form. The list below has all the safety kit, features and engine-gearbox options available with each variant:

    BS6 Kicks XL

    BS6 Kicks XV

    BS6 Kicks XV Premium

    BS6 Kicks XV Premium (O)

    Expect BS6 Kicks prices to range between Rs 10-15 lakh (ex-showroom), which should put it in direct contention with the petrol versions of the Kia Seltos (Rs 9.89-17.34 lakh), Hyundai Creta (Rs 9.99-17.20 lakh) and even the larger MG Hector (Rs 12.74-17.44 lakh).
