Nissan doesn’t follow the modern trend which is focused on the overwhelming Chinese market with sedans of luxurious type. Nissan focuses on a new CUV. The model is going to compete against such segment leaders as Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V. So here’s what we know about new 2017 Nissan Kicks.
2017 Nissan Kicks Redesign
The production looks much similar to the concept variant. The model is still equipped with V-motion grille. It can boast about great looking headlights. The whole look of the car is rather smooth in fact. You can also find a pair of nice fog lights.
Taillights have much resemblance with headlights. All of them are boomerang shaped so to speak. The whole car is covered with attractive body lines which make this car special. The model is released grayish-sliver body paint. However, it has a contrast of burnt-orange finish. It’s promised that there will be more combinations of colors to suit the most sophisticated drivers.
Nissan Kicks 2017 Interior
The overall feeling of the interior is positive. It feels good to be inside of the car but there are a lot of material which looks rather cheap. The feature which you are going to likely is Gliding Wing dashboard. It looks stylish and is equipped with air vents of HVAC type.
The instrument cluster gives you data about speed, the temperature of your engine as well as the level of fuel left. The steering wheel used is of three spoke type. Interior uses light brown color as a primary one. There’s enough legroom at the rear part of the car. The use of plastic materials still makes the interior cheap looking.
2017 Nissan Kicks Engine and Specifications
It’s strange but Nissan still stays secret about the use of engine so we can only make a guess. On the one hand, it’s expected that the model will use the 1.6-liter type of engine of turbocharged technologies. It may be good for the output of 188 horsepower.
On the other hand, there’s likelihood that the model can be shipped to America which hasn’t been confirmed, though. In this case, we expect the car with 2.5-liter engine used by the latest version of Rogue which outputs up to 170 horsepower. The choice of drivetrain for this production is still unknown.
2017 Nissan Kicks Price and Release Date
The car manufacturer doesn’t reveal any details on the price of their new model either. Nevertheless, it’s assumed that the model will be rather affordable. So the base model is likely to be $16,000 and the top range models may cost as much as $22,000.
Nissan promises that their new CUV will be sold in more than 80 countries. It will come to Brazil first. We expect it this August.
