Mississauga, Ont. – Nissan today announced a $17,998 CAD Canadian starting price for the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks, which goes on sale in June at Nissan dealerships nationwide. The newest entry in the fast-growing affordable compact crossover market, the bold new Kicks becomes the sixth member of the Nissan crossover and SUV line-up – which has experienced record sales in recent years.

"The new Kicks is designed to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for expressive styling, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features at an affordable price starting under $18,000 CAD," said Scott Pak, senior manager, product planning, Nissan Canada, Inc.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks will be offered in three well-equipped front-wheel drive models – Kicks S, Kicks SV and Kicks SR. Each is equipped with a standard 1.6-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). The engine delivers 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a smooth, fuel-efficient Xtronic transmission, highway fuel economy3 is rated at 6.6 litre/100km.

"Kicks' unique combination of expressive design, excellent fuel economy, intelligent technology and advanced safety features adds up to one thing – exceptional value," added Scott Pak. "And, with its good ground clearance, high eye point, electric power steering and small turning radius, Kicks is a great vehicle for both every day and weekend adventures."

The new 2018 Kicks' exterior combines emotion and practicality by blending bold wheel arch fenders and high crossover stance with familiar Nissan design signatures, including a V-motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights and floating roof with a "wrap-around visor" look. Available exterior features include standard Intelligent Auto Headlights (I-AH) and available LED low beam headlights with LED signature accents.

The 2018 Kicks will be offered in a range of five exterior colours – plus five two-tone combinations. Three of the two-tone colour schemes utilize a black roof and contrasting body colours (white, orange or red), along with the orange roof with gun metallic body and the white roof with blue body.

Inside, the Kicks offers a futuristic design in a cabin full of the innovative features expected by its tech-hungry target audience. The interior provides ample passenger space in the rear, as well as one of the largest load areas in its class4.

Kick's simple "Gliding Wing" dashboard design is dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch full colour display housing a comprehensive infotainment system with available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity. For the ultimate audio experience, the Kicks SR grade includes the new class-exclusive5 Bose® Personal® Plus sound system with a pair of lightweight 2.5-inch Bose® UltraNearfield™ neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks' driver's seat headrest. Among the other on-board technology, Kicks features an available Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM).

Safety, security and driver convenience features are strong points for Nissan Kicks. Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB)1 is standard on all grade levels, along with seven air bags and RearView Monitor. Kicks SR adds Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

"We're making Intelligent Emergency Braking standard across all grades of our best-selling models, including Rogue, Qashqai and now Kicks. It's part of our comprehensive vision for helping reduce fatalities known as Nissan Intelligent Mobility," said Scott Pak.
