Nissan India had announced the BS6 update for the Nissan Kicks SUV. Recently, it released the first set of details regarding the engine specifications pertaining to this SUV. The 2020 Nissan Kicks will now get a more powerful 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine that will produce 156 bhp of power output with 254 Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated to a new X-Tronic CVT gearbox along with an eight-step manual mode.

Also known as HR13DDT, the 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 at Nissan’s alliance partner Renault’s stand.

The next-generation Nissan X-Tronic CVT offers 40 percent less friction contributing to higher fuel economy and acceleration response.

The 2020 Nissan Kicks is expected to offer features like automatic climate control and cruise control, along with safety features like multiple airbags, ABS and Hill-Start Assist, to name a few. Once launched, the BS6 Nissan Kicks will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, Kia Seltos, and the updated Renault Captur that is soon to be launched.
