When you’re talking about popular models, many lower budget models come up in conversation because they have a lot to offer for the price. One of the vehicles creating a quite stir across the internet is the Nissan brand’s newest offering, the 2018 Nissan Kicks. This latest entry to the new Nissan lineup is a subcompact SUV, a market that is quickly growing in popularity. The Nissan Kicks is a unique vehicle similar to the popular Nissan Juke, currently available at our Nissan dealership in New Haven, CT. 

The Nissan brand developed the 2018 Nissan Kicks to reach young car buyers; they developed this car in coordination with the USA, Brazil, and Japan auto divisions. The Nissan Kicks is their smallest crossover and is positioned right under the Nissan Rogue Sport in the lineup. It might be labeled as the replacement for the Nissan Juke by some, but our Nissan dealers in CT disagree. 

The Nissan Kicks starts out at just under $18,000 MSRP in the United States, making it an exceptionally affordable new Nissan car for sale. All trim levels of the subcompact SUV come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a customizable instrument cluster, and automatic emergency braking. 

Looks-wise, it’s a bit more conservative than the Nissan Juke, which is a selling point for some Connecticut drivers. The 2018 Nissan Kicks has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque, accompanied by a CVT transmission. 

The Nissan Kicks is the sixth SUV from Nissan and is the first new nameplate added in eight years. You can come in and check out the 2018 Nissan Kicks at Executive Nissan in the very near future to see what the subcompact SUV is all about in person. In the meantime, feel free to browse our current inventory of new Nissan cars for sale near Branford, CT!
