Nissan Kicks

When Your Other Car is A GT-R

Last weekend, while having my morning coffee, I overhead a Nissan Kicks owner telling his friend that his other car is a GT-R and he went on the boast that Nissan’s meet his high standards no matter the price. Nissan’s super fun five door Kicks with its ever growing popularity has been catching the eyes of young drivers to adventure seekers and those looking for a sportier second car, the Kicks is a great choice. The Kicks is Nissan’s entry into the fast growing compact crossover market among offerings from Hyundai, Honda, and Toyota. The new Kicks is the sixth member of the Nissan crossover and SUV line-up, which includes the stylish best-selling, and affordable Rogue and Rogue Sport CUVs.

 

 
 

 

“This emerging CUV class is exploding with new entries for a very good reason – the combination of flexible utility and high value is ideal for active, urban new vehicle buyers,” said Dan Mohnke, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan Division U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. “Where the new Nissan Kicks stands out is with its bold style, personal technology, value, and fuel economy of 33-mpg combined. This all-new Nissan Kicks retains the basic design cues taken from the Kicks Concept that was the talk of the 2014 São Paulo Motor Show. Overseen by Nissan’s Global Design Center in Japan, Nissan Kicks is the result of close collaboration between Nissan Design America in San Diego and Nissan’s Rio de Janeiro satellite studio in Rio. Kicks have taken the new Nissan design DNA to a level for all with Nissan’s V-Motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights and the “floating roof “with a “wrap-around visor” look to the windscreen and side glass. In particular, with the wide C-pillar “hidden” with a black finish that blends into the tailgate glass, the “floating roof” has been exaggerated on the Kicks, giving it a distinctive and eye-catching appeal. Attractive available exterior features include standard Intelligent Auto Headlight with adjustable sensitivity and timing, rear wiper and roof rails also along with available LED low beam headlights with LED signature accents, fog lights, heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals and rear roof spoiler. “From a pure visual standpoint on the street, Kicks is a true head-turner, especially in the bold two-tone color combinations,” said Mohnke. “Kicks is clearly recognizable as part of the Nissan CUV family but has a vibrancy and identity all its own.

 

 
 

 

Inside the Kicks, you will find the “Gliding Wing” instrument panel design is dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch full-color display housing a comprehensive infotainment system. Kicks offer three interface choices NissanConnectSM, Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™7. The idea behind personalized technology is to allow drivers to do what they want, where they want,” said Mohnke. “For example, they can access mpg numbers, chassis dynamic control, radio/playlist information on the meter screen or on the audio display. You decide what to look at where.” And, for the ultimate audio experience, the Kicks SR Premium Package includes the new class-exclusive8Bose® Personal® Plus sound system. Part of the Bose® Small Vehicle Series, it delivers a superior, driver-focused listening experience using just eight speakers and proprietary Bose® signal processing to provide what Bose® calls “360 degrees of immersive sound.” Key to its dynamic sound is a pair of lightweight 2.5-inch Bose® UltraNearfield™ neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks’ driver’s seat head restraint  

 

 

Technology, Style & Safety

Kicks comes with a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). The engine is rated at 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a smooth, fuel-efficient Xtronic transmission, fuel economy1 is rated as best-in-class 5 in all three segments: 31mpg city, 36mpg highway and 33 mpg combined. Nissan Kicks.
