The world premiere will take place in 2 weeks.
Compact crossovers are in demand around the world due to its versatility and practicality. Japanese automaker Nissan Motor decided to catch the trend and announced that it would release a new compact crossover in July 2020. The company has not yet revealed the name of the novelty, however, it is known that the car will debut in the exhibition hall of Delhi on July 16. It is reported by the Indian automotive portal IndiaToday.
A compact SUV from Nissan will receive an octagonal grille and LED lights in the style of Nissan Kicks. L-shaped LED DRLs will appear on the front bumper, and sharp-shaped LED lights will appear on the rear. Also, the car will acquire muscular wheel arches and dual-tone alloy wheels.
The interior of the new compact crossover has not been fully disclosed, but it is expected that it will include an infotainment system with a touch screen, a multifunction steering wheel, automatic climate control, a digital dashboard, an engine start / stop button and a cooled glove box.
As power plants, Nissan will offer 2 gasoline units – a 1.0-liter naturally aspirated and 1.0-liter turbocharged engines that will be combined with manual and automatic transmissions. The drive will only be front.
The first and main market for the car will be Indian, but it is possible that later the model will appear in Russia.
It is assumed that the novelty will compete with the “brother” of the Renault Triber alliance, as well as the “Koreans” Hyundai Venue and KIA Sonet, and therefore the price should be appropriate – 655 thousand rupees for the basic version, which in translation into Russian currency is about 613 thousand rubles. We remind you that on the Russian market in the second half of 2020, Nissan Kicks 2020 model year is expected, the cost of which amounts to 1.3 – 1.8 million rubles. Thus, a more budgetary “Japanese” could become a promising “player” in the Russian car market.
