Nissan will soon have another sport utility vehicle in its already comprehensive range of SUVs. Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer unveiled at the last International Auto Show in Los Angeles in November the brand new 2018 Nissan Kicks, an SUV that will be added to the Nissan family in June 2018. The Kicks will be the most affordable and the most fuel-efficient Nissan SUV when it comes to Canada.
2018 Nissan Kicks: a safe and agile SUV for the urban jungle
The stated goal of the new 2018 Nissan Kicks is to meet the needs of a young family that has to navigate a predominantly urban environment. The Kicks is indeed a utility vehicle that is compact and promises impressive agility to its owners. It will be powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine developing 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired with an Xtronic CVT continuously variable automatic transmission that will send engine power to the front wheels. This combination should ensure impressive fuel economy.
In addition to its efficient engine, the 2018 Nissan Kicks will offer several driver assistance technologies that will make urban travel easier. Indeed, the Kicks will offer a standard rear-view camera as well an automatic braking assistance system with front collision detection. Seven airbags are also standard in the new Kicks.
It will be available in three versions with a choice of five colors, and some versions are equipped in addition with a blind spot monitoring system as well as a rear cross traffic monitoring system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features that provide perfect connectivity between the car and your mobile device will also be available, as will a premium Bose audio system.
"As the gateway to Nissan's adventure-ready sport utility line-up – joining Qashqai, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder and Armada – Kicks is designed to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for expressive styling, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features," said Steve Rhind, director of marketing for Nissan Canada Inc.
