This past June, the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks arrived here at our Guelph Nissan Dealership, and so far it has made quite the splash! What makes the Kicks so great? Well, for starters, it offers high fuel efficiency – with “best-in-class” 6.6 L/100 km on the highway! The Kicks also cranks out 125 horsepower, and 115 lb.-ft. of torque – all thanks to a lightweight 1.6-L DOHC 4-cylinder engine, and it comes available with either a five-speed manual transmission, or our Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

As if that’s not enough to turn your head, the Kicks also offers a very stylish exterior design, all its own! With a V-motion grille, “boomerang-shaped” LED signature lamps, and a signature look “floating roof” design.

In addition, the Kicks comes standard with Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, and an AM/FM audio system, including 6 speakers and a 7 inch touch-screen display!

Now let’s talk competition. What sets the 2018 Nissan Kicks apart from competitors such as the 2018 Hyundai Kona or the 2018 Toyota C-HR? Well, the Kicks boasts more rear headroom, more front row legroom, and offers more cargo space behind the second row! Additionally, the Kicks also comes with Standard Intelligent Emergency Braking with Forward Collision Warning! This system is only available as an upgrade with most competitors. Other impressive standard safety features include: a Rearview Monitor, Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control, the Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System, a Latch System, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System and 7 Airbags!

The 2018 Nissan Kicks comes available in 3 distinct front-wheel-drive trim levels: Kicks S, Kicks SV and Kicks SR. Stepping up to the Kicks SR also comes with more advanced features including: an Around View Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, NissanConnect (featuring Apple Carplay and Android Auto), Prima-Tex Upholstery and the Bose Personal Plus Sound System – with 8 high performance speakers, including two Bose UltraNearfield speakers in the driver’s headrest!
