When you hear that the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks was bred and born south of the boarder in Rio in Brazil, it all makes sense. This quirky little compact crossover from the Japanese automaker is full of spunk and personality, that starts with its exterior design and ends with its available high-end sound system designed with the driver’s audio needs in mind.
Let’s start with the looks; the 2018 Nissan Kicks has a unique exterior design that’s sure to set it apart from the heavy crossover competition already out there. Different in all the right ways, the Kicks sports Nissan’s signature V-motion grille, but in a decidedly youthful way. Step around to the back and you’ll once again spot a signature design element: the floating roofline. And if solid colours aren’t good enough to suit your personality, then Nissan offers a two-tone colour combo option for the Nissan Kicks that’s sure to set you apart from the pack even more.
Step inside the 2018 Nissan Kicks and you’re greeted with an interior that’s spacious (much more spacious than the outside would allude to), as well as coloured stitching, soft-touch materials throughout, and an easy-to-use infotainment system that also features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Now, about that sound system: For the true audiophile, there is a package that will outfit the 2018 Nissan Kicks with a kickin’ Bose sound system. It features an amp and eight speakers, two of which are located directly in the driver’s headrest.
In terms of power, the 2018 Nissan Kicks features a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque, which is powered by Nissan’s Xtronic CVT that “shifts” like a regular geared transmission, making for a much more normal ride.
With added ride height, enough interior space for 5 adults to sit comfortably with trunk space to boot, the 2018 Nissan Kicks offers up a stellar alternative and yet another option in the compact crossover segment, but it’s a good option and well worth checking out.
