Nissan has discontinued a range of products from their lineup.
The BS6 transition period has made big changes in the Nissan lineup. The Japanese carmaker had discontinued a range of cars in India. The Nissan Terrano and now Micra and Sunny have been removed from their website.
All these cars haven’t been updated to meet the stringent Bharat Stage 6 norms. Nissan decided not to update the slow selling models and instead concentrate on future products.
The Nissan Kicks BS6 version has been revealed officially. The car will be launched very soon. It comes with a new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine with CVT and manual transmission options. Also, new features have been added to the car.
While Kicks is a small update over the current model. Nissan is betting big on their upcoming compact SUV. The Nissan Magnite budget compact SUV is due for its launch in August.
It will be offered at an attractive Rs. 5.25 lakhs starting price. The compact SUV will be loaded with first in segment features.
With Nissan Micra discontinued along with the Sunny and Terrano. The company is currently left with only two cars – Kicks and GT-R. The same have been listed on the official Indian website.
The Micra and Sunny were both offered with petrol and diesel engine options. Due to the lack of features and old design, the products couldn’t catch up with the competition.
The hatchback segment has seen potent new entrants in recent times with advanced features and tech. Even the C-segment sedan space has evolved with aggressive new offerings.
If the Magnite works well in the Indian market, then Nissan has a stable future in the country. With VFM offering expected to gain more traction post pandemic, Nissan might have a winner in their hand.
