Below the Juke?

This will pretty much destroy the Juke's sales numbers overnight if you ask me...

Size-wise it's between a Juke and a Qashqai. Not all markets are getting the Kicks...SA will though.

The (later-on) performance model (KickeR) will be priced towards to the top spec CashCow models.

Hopefully will come with a decent engine range - ideally an auto version of the Qashqai's 1.6 turbo.

But I fear it'll be the standard tame small crossover engines..

Nissan Kicks [US]

The brand-new Nissan Kicks becomes the newest entry in the fast-growing affordable compact crossover market when it hits Nissan U.S. dealerships in June 2018. Kicks also becomes the sixth member of the Nissan crossover and SUV lineup, which has experienced record sales in recent years.

As the gateway to Nissan's adventure-ready sport-utility portfolio - joining Rogue Sport, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder and Armada - Kicks is designed to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for unique styling, roominess, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features at an affordable price.

"This emerging CUV class is exploding with new entries for a very good reason - the combination of flexible utility and high value is ideal for active, urban new vehicle buyers," said Dan Mohnke, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan Division U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. "Where the new Nissan Kicks stands out is with its bold style, personal technology, value and anticipated fuel economy of 33-mpg combined."

Looks a lot like the KIA Stonic....wonder if they use the same designer/stylist...

I like it, except for the badge...but that's just my preference...

I think it'll do well if it has a decent diesel power-train.

One of the major concerns is something small but relevant in this day and age and that is the infotainment system Nissan are known for shyty systems.

It will all boil down to price and service plan and Nissan have good service plans.

I actually quite like it. I can't figure out why though. But 'Kicks':wtf: I cannot fathom what brought about that gem of artistic fervour.
