2018 Nissan Kicks: An Entry-Level SUV That's Not Entry-Level
The 2018 Nissan Kicks is the most affordable SUV in the Nissan lineup with a starting price of $ 17,998. It is also one of the most affordable SUVs in Canada making it the perfect vehicle for young active couples or young families looking for a versatile and safe vehicle at a price that makes a lot of sense.
Despite its affordable starting price, the 2018 Nissan Kicks is nevertheless well equipped. It offers a rear-view camera, a smart emergency braking system and an automatic transmission (continuously variable for better fuel economy).
The rear-view camera makes it easier to maneuver in tight spots while the intelligent braking system is designed to reduce the likelihood of an accident in the city. The system is able to monitor the road in front of you and react if ever a vehicle brakes suddenly. If the driver does not respond to the emergency warning, the system may automatically apply the brakes to prevent the accident.
In a vehicle offered for less than $ 20,000, it is certainly interesting to note the presence of such an advanced system. It is also interesting to see that the Kicks offers the automatic transmission as standard despite its attractive price.
If you opt for an SV model starting at $ 20,898 you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features, 17-inch wheels, heated front seats and a 7-inch center screen.
Under the hood, the 2018 Nissan Kicks features a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 125 horsepower. This is enough to ensure high performance in the city while gas mileage is exemplary with an average of 7.7 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 6.6 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
