Nissan Kicks To be Introduced in South America Soon
Nissan is ready to compete in the fast-growing compact crossover segments.
Its weapon to compete in this segment is the all-new Nissan Kicks, a striking vehicle that is well-equipped with advanced technology. And the success of its new contender will be built on Nissan’s position as a pioneer in the global crossover market, with other successful crossovers such as Qashqai, Murano, X-Trail and Juke.
Expected to be in all Nissan dealerships in Brazil from August 5, the Nissan Kicks will deliver an agile, but fuel-efficient driving experience. Brazil is the first country to launch the new model, which will then be introduced by the end of the year in several countries in Latin America and, ultimately, more than 80 countries.
With bold lines, which include Nissan’s signature design cues found on all global models, such as the “V-Motion” grille, the “floating roof” and “boomerang shape lights,” the styling of Kicks also benefits from advanced aerodynamic engineering to optimize fuel efficiency and minimize wind noise.
It is a true crossover in the best Nissan tradition, combining the bold, daring and dynamic design and higher seating position favored by customers in the city – but with a compact footprint and agile performance.
The Brazilian version of Nissan Kicks is powered by a revised version of the trusted Nissan 1.6-liter HR16DE petrol engine, which develops 114PS and a maximum torque figure of 152Nm.
