This is the Nissan Kicks Columbia Edition, built in cooperation with the outdoor apparel company of the same name. It starts at ¥2,759,900 (P1.2 million), but you can install the Colombia package separately for just ¥210,000 (P930,000).

So, what’s new here? You get more protection on the vehicle’s underside, as well as new side sills. You’ll also notice some blue accents and decals inspired by Columbia’s corporate color. It’s available in a Titanium Khaki or Dark Blue finish.

The interior, meanwhile, gets wrapped in Condura fabric. This material should be familiar to those of you familiar with Colombia products, as it’s used extensively in the company’s rugged and water-resistant offerings. The seatbacks also feature more storage pockets, and the floor is covered in deodorizing a carpet.
