Nissan Kicks: from Latin America to North


Nissan Kicks: от Латинской Америки к СевернойA new compact crossover, the Nissan Kicks is willing to insure the model Juke.

Nissan aims to grab another “piece of cake”, if we are talking about the class of compact crossovers. The Nissan Kicks is for. The car is know in Latin America, and now, it happened at the auto show in Los Angeles, it was demonstrated in the specifications for North America. This alternative Juke within one family is obtained.

This is not to deny that Kicks was developed with a much more conservative approach to business. Car bold enough, but at the same time not seeking to sound flashy, as did and does his “brother”.

The same can be said about the wheels from 16 inches in the base versions, up to 17 inch versions abruptly. A two-tone design of the body gives the freshness of this model, and Nissan just saying that there are several of these color combinations. As you can see, the automaker is clearly aimed at the satisfaction of desires of youth, which is always and everywhere wants to stand out from the gray mass.

Inside this Nissan all quite Mature. For example, there is a 7-inch screen infotainment system. The availability of a particular equipment will depend on the selected trim level Kicks. Regardless of configuration, all the Kicks will receive support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the automatic emergency braking system. Expensive configurations, even the Bose sound system find.

The power unit, and a 1.6-liter DOHC four-cylinder, 125 horsepower and 115 Nm of torque has no alternative. Absolutely no. Power is sent exclusively to the front wheels, the box is just Xtronic CVT and all. Full drive! Turning only the front wheels, will definitely lead to weight loss, but whether the power level is still enough to satisfy, is something you need to tell on the test drive.

In all likelihood, the Kicks will replace in the lineup the Juke compact crossover the Japanese automaker in the next year. For comparison, the Kicks offers a bit more interior space and still cuter. Of course, there is all-wheel drive, but this omission is easy to fix. Nissan says that the price of Kicks will be announced closer to the launch date, but expect it in June 2018.
