Would Nissan Kicks be a good choice over Hyundai Creta

Well - the Engine Options, Chassis Platform and Suspension are already known and used in Cars like Duster, Captur, Terrano to an extent. There is no doubt on Handling department of car

However, to be a tough Competition to Hyundai Creta - It ends down to how much Space in Cabin along with Value Proposition of how many Features List in the Price Bracket Offered will end down to determine the success of Kicks.

Nissan already struggling with low sales, hope Kicks would end to be last laugh from Nissan in Mid SUV, Cross Segment to really kick down the competition for a better prospect.
