We have no clue, if we are going to see it in this market at all. Anyway, I am going to tell you about it, just for the kicks! (There! I just wanted to get that too predictable a cliché on record; I suspect that is why I chose to tell you this story in the first place!)

Nissan unveils Kicks, its all-new global compact crossover (2)

Nissan has unveiled its new compact crossover in Brazil before it moves to other Latin American countries and eventually 80 across the globe – and it is called Kicks. For a compact SUV slightly bigger than the Juke and the new Mazda CX-3, talk about a name that packs a punch. [Kicks is 4295 mm long, 1760 mm wide and 1590 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2610mm. In comparison, the Juke is 4135 mm long with a 2530mm wheelbase.] The car especially in the orange complemented by black, heavily resembles the new Renault Capture but beats its dimensions for the record. The production ready Kicks retains the basic design cues taken from the Kicks Concept – first seen at the Sao Paulo Motor Show in 2014.

The new Nissan Kicks is not designed to kick up any dust, at least not outside the urban jungle. Nissan’s safety features like Intelligent Mobility and around view monitor as well as design signatures like Nissan’s V-motion grille, boomerang head and taillights, and the floating roof with a “wraparound visor” look to the windscreen and side glass – it’s all there in the Kicks. Nissan claims segment leading rear passenger space and boot space, despite the coupe like roofline – Nissan can make that happen!

      Dear Ariful Haque, You have put together all the compact SUVs there is. :-) You see, these days bad cars are ‘almost none’. It is just that some suit your personality and needs better. Therefore please define your need and your budget, and shortlist some from the list, and then test drive them to find out what ‘clicks’! Most of the models you mentioned have been reviewed on Drivemeonline.com. Hope they help too.
      As for MG GS I will happily take up your request and include a “Review on Demand” as soon as possible.
