Los Angeles 2017: Nissan Unveils Another Small SUV Called Kicks!

Its floating roof is on trend for now, and the Kicks has its own version of the Nissan grille with an abbreviated look. It's the 2018 Nissan Kicks, a subcompact utility vehicle that will be positioned below the Qashqai in the product lineup.

Nissan has pulled the covers off the 2018 Kicks, the company's new subcompact SUV which first made its appearance in Latin America previous year.

It's a JUKE That said, although Nissan insists on the fact that the Kicks has nothing to do with the Nissan JUKE, there are mechanical components that prove otherwise. Slightly larger than the Juke, the Kicks stays relatively true to its original concept design and features familiar styling cues from the brand. The vehicle will be offered in seven exterior colors with five two-tone combinations.

Inside, the Kicks features a "Gliding Wing" dashboard design that comes with a 7-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Kicks SR Premium Package includes adds the Bose Personal Plus sound system with a pair of 2.5-inch Bose UltraNearfield neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks' driver's seat headrest. Blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning, as well as an around-view monitor are also available.

Driving the Kicks is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder DOHC engine that benefits from a Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). With the help of a smooth, efficient Xtronic CVT, fuel consumption should be quite low (official ratings have yet to be posted). Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive will not be available on any variant of the Kicks for the USA market.

Safety is paramount on the Kicks, with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) coming standard, and additional active safety features included as you move from Kicks S up to Kicks SV and Kicks SR trims. Nevertheless, it is being described as a great companion to navigate the city with considering its good ground clearance, high eye point, electric power steering and small turning radius.
