It's a brand new crossover that's big on attitude. Nissan Kicks demands attention with dynamic styling, personalized technology, and nimble performance. Just what you need to rule the city. The Kicks will will feature an all-around-view monitor, which is a newer addition to the Nissan lineup. This feature gives the driver a 360-degree view of the area around the vehicle, helpful especially for parking and driving in small spaces. If you get too close to an object on any side, front, or back, there will be an on-screen warning to alert you.
The compact crossover is the fastest growing section in car sales, and is also the most affordable. The 2018 Nissan Kicks will join the ranks with a bold style, with recognizable Nissan standouts: the V-motion grille and floating roof, as well as new two-tone color options. The exterior was designed for aerodynamic ability, which estimates its combined MPG at 33. With three different trims available (the base S, midgrade SV, and top-end SR model), each at affordable prices, the Kicks is sure to turn heads
Powering the 2018 Kicks is a 1.6-liter I-4 with 125 hp and 115 lb-ft of torque paired exclusively to a CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive will not be available on any variant of the Kicks for the U.S. market. Nissan is targeting an EPA combined fuel economy rating of 33 mpg, which means the 2018 Kicks might be one of the most fuel-efficient entries in its class. All models feature front disc and rear drum brakes. SR models feature Nissan's Integrated Dynamic-Control Module (IDM), which bundles active engine braking, Active Trace Control, and Active Ride Control for improved ride and handling. Up front the 2018 Kicks has independent suspension, and the rear has a torsion beam with twin-tube shock absorbers.
Performance and efficiency can go hand in hand, and Kicks is driving proof of it. Even with plenty of get-up-and-go, the combination of an advanced engine and lightweight design means Kicks gets the most out of every drop of fuel.
With a unique "floating" roof design, wraparound visor look and bold V-motion grille, Nissan Kicks is like nothing else on the road. Add in available LED headlights with a distinct signature line, and the dramatic effect is complete.
When all your friends have the night off, make the most of it. From a spacious interior that maximizes room with a flat floor design, to the high degree of craftsmanship apparent in every design element, Nissan Kicks gives you, and your friends, the perfect excuse to stay out late.
Standard features on the base S trim include Bluetooth, three USB ports, automatic headlights, 16-inch steel wheels, and roof rails. The SV trim adds the NissanConnect infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, automatic climate control, keyless entry/start, remote start, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and 17-inch alloy wheels. SR models round things off with features such as LED low-beam headlights, foglights, black side-mirror covers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Nissan's Around View Monitor 360-degree camera system. Heated front seats are optional on the SR trim, as is a Bose premium audio system.
Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning are standard on all trim levels of the 2018 Nissan Kicks. Automatic Emergency Braking can help save you from a potential frontal collision. It monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead, and can let you know if you need to apply the brakes. It can even automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision or lessen the severity of an impact. Standard Forward Collision Warning is on the lookout, watching the car ahead. It monitors your speed and distance, and when it detects sudden deceleration, it gives you a heads up to slow down. Safety, security and driver convenience features are strong points for Nissan Kicks.
