Nissan Kicks Adds a Dash of Color to Line of Nissan SUVs
Nissan SUVs, like many other vehicles, have a handful of color options for drivers to choose from. Picking your favorite from between six and 12 colors was supposed to be enough. The all-new Nissan Kicks has changed the status quo. Released in June of 2018, Nissan Kicks is a crossover SUV that truly revolutionizes exterior style for cars.
With the Kicks Color Studio, you can truly customize the color of your car by choosing from among all of the available accents and finishers. Some of these distinctive accents include a front lip finisher, side mirror caps, door handle covers, and rear roof spoiler. In the Kicks Color Studio online, consumers start by choosing their vehicle’s trim level. Then, they pick a base color. There are currently seven different base colors: Fresh Powder, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Super Black, Cayenne Red, and Aspen White. An eighth color, Monarch Orange, is available as a two-tone option with certain main colors. The fun color combinations aren’t limited to the exterior of the vehicle, either. Drivers can amp up the interior of their vehicles by choosing colorful accents for the air vents, the rearview mirror, and the floor mats.
Color is only one part of the equation, however. After all, who wants a car that looks great but can’t perform? You won’t have to worry about that with the Nissan Kicks. It offers optimal performance for the modern driver, innovative safety technologies, and convenient infotainment options to make your drive as easy as possible.
Trims and Performance
There are three trims available for the Nissan Kicks: the S, SV, and SR. The S trim starts at $17,990 and comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen display, Siri Eyes Free, rearview monitor, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning.
The SV trim includes all the features of the S, plus it adds 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a seven-inch advanced drive-assist display, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, Nissan Intelligent Key, and blind spot warning. This trim starts at $19,690.
Finally, the SR trim includes all of the features of the S and SV, adding LED headlights with signature LED accents, fog lights, a rear roof spoiler, sport cloth seat trim with orange accents and stitching, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The SR trim starts at $20,290.
No matter what trim you choose, Nissan Kicks is at the pinnacle of city performance. It gets an EPA-estimated 31/36 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway. This practical fuel economy will save you a lot of money at the pump. Plus, it gets a respectable 125 horsepower, 115 lb.-ft. of torque, and it’s lightweight, weighing in at 2,649 pounds.
The Nissan Kicks also comes with a lot of little features that work behind the scenes to make your life on the road easier. One of these features is the speed-sensitive steering. The electric power steering cuts the amount of energy needed from the engine, ultimately saving you more on gas. It also adjusts the handling based on the speed of your travel, allowing you to feel more in control.
Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility also provides driving features such as hill start assist, which holds the vehicle still until you’re ready to go. It also has an intelligent engine brake, allowing your deceleration to feel much smoother, intelligent trace control that applies the brake to each wheel to help you steer through turns, and active ride control, which automatically applies the brakes and adjusts the torque when you go over bumps to give you a smoother ride.
The new Nissan Kicks model has a variety of available safety features that keep you secure every time you’re on the road. Whether you’re stuck in traffic on the highway or simply heading down the street to the grocery store, the Nissan Kicks will get you where you need to go.
The Nissan Advanced Airbag system has front airbags with seatbelt and occupant classification sensors. There is also front seat side impact airbags and roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental airbags with rollover sensors to keep you as safe as possible in the event of a collision.
If you have children, you’ll appreciate the Nissan Kicks LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system, which provides the extra assurance that it will keep your little ones safe on the road. The LATCH system will secure compatible child restraints in the back seat without parents having to use seat belts or a locking clip.
In addition to the Nissan Intelligent Mobility features that all work together to give you a better driving experience, there are tons of top-of-the-line technological features to make your car feel like home. Some trims include Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, allowing you to sync compatible smartphones with your car’s display, giving you easy access to maps, music, contacts, and more.
Other creature comforts in the Nissan Kicks include automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a remote engine start system. These features all work together to make you feel as comfortable and make your care as much like home as possible.
Bluetooth technology and Siri Hands-Free come standard on the Nissan Kicks, letting you use your phone while leaving your hands open to steer. These features are especially useful for the busy professional, and you’ll never need to worry about your phone staying charged with the three USB ports in the Nissan Kicks.
Drivers can access vital car data using features such as the digital tachometer, which allows you to see the car’s rpm at a glance. Plus, real-time fuel efficiency monitors let you know how economically you’re driving, helping you save money at the gas station. Finally, the tire pressure monitoring system will keep you informed when your tires are running low on air so you can get them taken care of before getting on the road.
The all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks gives you the style and customization you want with the performance, safety, and technology features you deserve. If you want a car that looks great and feels like a home away from home, the Nissan Kicks is the Nissan SUV for you.
