The 2018 Nissan Kicks just made its world debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. A subcompact crossover, the Kicks will be similar in size to rivals such as the Honda HR-V, the Mazda CX-3 and the Toyota C-HR. Although prices are not yet fixed, we are confident that it will be competitive within this clbad. In all likelihood, that means that it will start at the low $ 20,000 for the Kicks S base model. Other equipment levels will include an SV and an SR.
The frontal collision warning with automatic braking will be standard equipment for all Kicks, while the SV and SR will add blind spot monitoring with subsequent cross traffic alert. Available options will include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Bose premium audio system with speakers inside the driver's headrest and a wraparound view camera system.
Each Nissan Kicks 2018 will be powered by a four-cylinder, 1.6-liter (125 horsepower, 115 lb.-ft. of torque) engine that delivers power to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The production of this engine is less than that of the competitors that supply energy in the neighborhood of 140 hp. The competition also usually offers four-wheel drive, which does not happen with Kicks. But Nissan estimates that it will return 33 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving, so the advantage should be great fuel economy.
On the outside, the Kicks has a style execution similar to the rest of the clbad. It will have proportions similar to SUVs, but in terms of size, it looks more like a big hatchback. Like the C-HR, the Kicks will also be available with roofs of different colors for a sporty and youthful appearance. According to specifications, it will have a slight advantage in terms of load capacity, with 25.3 cubic feet available behind the rear seats. That's a little more than the Honda HR-V and twice the Mazda CX-3.
