The 2018 Nissan Kicks Aims to Be Hip in the City

"As the gateway to Nissan's adventure-ready sport utility lineup, the Kicks is created to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for expressive styling, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features".

The 2018 Nissan Kicks has a little kick to it, with a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder.

After making waves in South America a year ago, the all-new Nissan Kicks crossover has officially been introduced in global markets, particularly in USA.

Nissan has taken the wraps off the Kicks SUV for the American market.

Nissan Kicks Debuts in America Will Replace the Juke

We'll know more when the Kicks goes on sale in June. Nissan has plans to sell the vehicle in more than 80 countries worldwide. Nissan will market the tiny crossover as a strong value and a offer it with wide range of exterior colors, complete with five two-tone options. Signature elements in the design include the crossover stance, V-motion grille, diamond cut alloy wheels and the arrow-head shaped tail lamps.

Despite the coupe-like roofline, Nissan claims the interior offers ample passenger space in the rear as well as one of the largest trunks in the segment. The engine makes a modest 125 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque, but the trade-off is fuel efficiency; Nissan estimates the Kicks will return 33 mpg combined. The dashboard houses a 7.0-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. Those who enjoy tunes while they navigate will appreciate the Bose premium stereo with UltraNearfield neodymium speakers, located inside the driver's headrest.

The lack of all-wheel drive is because the Kicks is likely bound to live its life between the parking meters, in cities, like the Juke.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks will be available in three trims: S, SV and SR. Automatic Emergency Braking is standard, along with seven air bags and a RearView Monitor. Customers are turning more and more towards front-wheel-drive utility vehicles instead of opting for AWD.
