    i cant believe they just bumped the power/torque by like 10% when im sure its way heavier than 10%
    Wiki says...

    Brazilian: 1,109 kg-1,136 kg (2.444 lb-2504 lb)
    Chinese: 1,122 kg-1,164 kg (2.473 lb-2566 lb)
    Ours will probably weigh a little more than these models (probably will come with more airbags and crash structure). Considering the heaviest Micra is 2407 lbs / 1092 kg, the power:weight ratio of the Kicks may actually be a little better:

    -- Kicks has 15% more power than SR Micra automatic
    -- Kicks weighs 7% more than SR Micra auto.

    But it comes with the rubber band transmission only, so it will feel slower and the engine drone will drive you nuts when you step on it.
