Nissan's all new compact SUV Kicks has been revealed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil just before its official debut on May 2. A concept version of this car was already showcased at the 2014 Sao Paulo Auto Show that is similar to this production model from all the angles. Reportedly, the model is likely to be launched in second quarter of this year in Brazil, while the India bound could take place sometime in next year.
It looks like Nissan has provided only a couple of images to make excitement among the car lovers and has held the details for its official premiere. Although, some related information has already been available in the market that hints about its platform and engine option. As we had reported earlier, the Kicks is going to be based on the carmaker V-platform, which can also be seen with its Nissan Sunny and Nissan Micra.
