"The Nissan Kicks small crossover, which will be the official car of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in August 2016, will be sold in 80 markets. The newcomer will slot in between the Juke and Qashqai when it arrives here in 2017."
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."
