    It has been already reported that Japanese car maker Nissan is preparing to launch a slew of new models in the Indian car market in 2018. One of the upcoming Nissan models in India is the Kicks compact SUV. Nissan is expected to launch the Kicks as a more premium compact SUV model in India and it is likely to go against its own cousin, the recently launched Renault Captur. The Nissan Kicks’ crash test ratings have been revealed by the Latin NCAP. The Brazil-spec model of the Kicks has achieved a respectable Four Star rating in the latest Latin NCAP crash tests.

    Now, India is expected to get the almost identical Nissan Kicks model which is available in the Brazilian car market, as the car markets of these two countries are very similar. However, the India-spec Kicks would be based on a different platform. The Brazilian Nissan Kicks is based on the V-platform and gets equipped with safety features such as 2 front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), seat belts with pre-tensioners and Isofix mounts for child seat. The SUV managed to get the impressive 4 Star ratings in both adult occupancy and child occupancy tests.
