The New JUKE — Nissan Kicks

The Japanese automaker revealed the 2018 Nissan Kicks on Wednesday at the 2017 Los Angeles auto show and it promises to be a formidable urban utility vehicle to replace the aged, and somewhat polarizing, Nissan Juke.

The Kicks goes on sale in June 2018. The vehicle is aimed at singles or couples looking for style on a budget. The compact crossover comes with a unique exterior design, ample interior space, advanced technologies and smart functionalities that will allow them to tackle the often-intense urban landscape.

The Kicks will start at "well under $19,000" says Nissan. The latter is longer, taller and narrower than the former.

Nevertheless, the Nissan Kicks still features distinctive and expressive aesthetics with styling cues inspired by the Kicks Concept - introduced at the São Paulo International Motor Show in 2014.

Aesthetically, the 2018 Nissan Kicks stands out with bold wheel arches and a high crossover stance, not to mention familiar Nissan design signatures including a V-Motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights and a "floating" roof.

The cabin of the America spec Kicks gets a black cabin with silver inserts for the crucial bits like the steering, AC vents and touchscreen infotainment system. Let's not forget about safety: Automatic Emergency Braking with Forward Collision Warning is standard on all trim levels, along with seven airbags and a RearView Monitor.

The lack of all-wheel drive is because the Kicks is likely bound to live its life between the parking meters, in cities, like the Juke.

The 2018 Kicks is powered by a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that is rated at 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

"Pricing for the 2018 Nissan Kicks will be announced closer to its on-sale date in spring 2018, but we are expecting to be among the most competitive in the segment", Mohnke said.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks will be available in three trims: S, SV and SR.

Kicks became the sixth model line of crossover and Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) that Nissan marketed in the United States, after Rogue Sport, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder and Fleet.
