Nissan's Crossover Kicks Promises to Deliver Impressive Performance

The company has only provided FWD with automatic transmission which offers a stable and powerful drive.

The all-new Nissan Kicks is one of its kind vehicle, succeeding the popular Nissan Juke. This is a crossover hatchback that has shared little similarities with Juke. Unlike Juke, Kicks comes with a front-wheel drive which is usually observed in low-cost subcompact SUVs. Kicks will come in three different models namely S, SV, and SR will primarily compete with Ford EcoSport and Toyota C-HR. The price of these models increases as you go up starting from S which is priced at US$ 19585 inclusive of all fees, followed by SR trim for only US$ 21915. The customer can add a Premium Package worth US$ 1000 which includes Bose premium audio, heated front seats, Prima-Tex upholstery, and an alarm system.

Nissan Kicks is powered with a 1.6-liter engine which produces an output of 122 horsepower and torque of 114 Nm. Nissan has provided Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) providing a mileage of 31 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. Although the company has not provided AWD, the modern traction and control systems coupled with FWD offers a stable and powerful drive to the owner. On the interior side, Kicks feel extremely roomy, providing ample space for both luggage and passengers.

The cargo capacity of Kicks is 25.3 cubic feet behind rear seats and 32.3 cubic feet after rear seats are folded down. Nissan has provided 7.0 inches touchscreen display integrated with Nissan Connect Infotainment system, Bluetooth Phone support, Siri-Eyes Free and a standard rear-view camera. The car has the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto system with satellite radio support. The only hitch is, it does not have AWD and only comes with automatic transmission. Kicks is priced at US$ 23,300 and look like a decent drive for the small family.
