Nissan Kicks Engine?

Haven't been able to find an exact word or specs on what engine the Nissan Kicks will be coming with but I have found some info on it and I shall share it here.

India will be getting a 1.2L turbo gasoline engine. There is apparently also a 1.6L but they could be getting rid of that because it doesn't produce enough power and it isn't as fuel efficient.

Brazil has some sort of flexi-fuel engine that India will not be getting.

There is also a 1.5L diesel engine that will be available that has either an 83bhp option or 108bhp along with 5 or 6 speed manual transmission options.

So far I haven't found anything concrete as to what the rest of the global market will be getting but I'm thinking it could be something along the lines of the 1.2L turbo engine.

The diesel option will most likely be limited to the European market and the 1.2L turbo should be available there and in North America. I couldn't find much about the engines aside from the rumor that it could be a twin model of the Renault Kaptur crossover.

That's what I would think as well and it's also the most likely option. 1.2L turbo engines in NA is definitely a common thing now, smaller displacement compensated with some boost and you have some real good efficiency and power!

If the rumors are true, we could be getting a 1.2-litre 4cyl turbo petrol in the Nissan Kicks with around 120bhp. That's enough for my daily commute, enough pep for overtaking on highways whilst being fuel efficient.

That's not bad at all, and for those who want a bit more of a "kick" you can always get a tune and bump up to around 145-150hp and that should be more than enough power for the Kicks to get you where you need to be, over take with ease, and be nimble. It'll probably even get you a bit more fuel efficient as well haha.

Most importantly torque will be up a good amount, probably right up with power or a bit past it in numbers.

I just hope that will be enough power and torque throughout the power band, enough to not feel like its lacking in certain areas.

Peak torque on a small turbo engine like that would most likely hit in the 3000rpm mark if not a little bit sooner considering they're using small turbos. I'm probably sure it's a smaller turbo than a K03 that Audi utilizes on their 1.8T and 2.0T engines. It'll last through the power band though which is the main thing and probably decline around 5500-6000rpm range ?

Those sound like some good expectations for power distribution.

If that holds true then whats left is the transmission and what those gear ratios are like. If that's not good then maybe the generous amount of power (at least I think it is) could make up for the transmissions woes.

Gear ratios are going to be a big thing. The Nissan Juke currently uses a final drive of 5.69:1 I believe. If you know anything about gears (I personally don't know that much), you could check out page 2 on this and it'll provide some information

I'm not too familiar with gear ratios either aside from the general concept that the lower the number, the faster the car will go. The higher the number, the better the car will accelerate but it affects high speed cruising negatively. Does it look like the Juke's ratio is high or low?
