Abdulmohsen Abdulaziz Al-Babtain Co (AABC), the sole authorised dealer of Nissan in Kuwait, has announced the availability of the new Nissan Kicks, refreshed with style and technology upgrades.
Placing a large focus on enhancing connectivity, innovation and personalisation, the Nissan Kicks 2023 edition allows drivers to further express their personal style as they cut through the city with precise handling and available advanced driver assist features.
Nissan's lineup of Kicks has attracted young, enthusiastic drivers to the brand every year and has maintained its reputation for offering an impressive array of class-leading features with equally attractive value.
Bold first impression
While maintaining Kicks' compact urban crossover dimensions – with its large interior space and nimble, city-sized exterior for easy maneuverability – the extensive exterior changes immediately set Kicks apart from the competition. The Nissan Kicks 2023 is available in Kicks SL.
Starting with a bold front end, the new Kicks features a "Double V- motion" grille, while the LED headlights offer a high-tech, modern and premium effect, which is even further enhanced on the SL grade's super-thin LED multi-reflector design and additionally includes LED fog lights and side turning lamps on door mirrors.
A stylish rear end begins with a new bumper and back door finisher and LED combination light that stretches from side to side, adding a strong horizontal line that emphasises Kicks' wide rear structure. Like in front, the redesigned rear bumper imparts a sense of more "lifted" volume and a premium feel.
The new Kicks continues with its floating roof with a wrap-around visor look to the windscreen and side glass. The wide C-pillar appears hidden, with a black finish that blends into the tailgate glass and still allows excellent outward visibility for all.
Standard exterior features include Intelligent Auto Headlights with adjustable sensitivity and timing, along with rear wiper and available roof rails, heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals and rear roof spoiler.
Smart, stylish interior
Redesigned with brown leather seats and leather handles, the new Kicks interior also has a new stylish and premium feel. The versatile interior offers a sporting flavor – provided by a D-shaped steering wheel, comfortable 6-way driver's seat, 4-way adjustable front passenger seat and 60/40-split fold-down rear seat.
For peace of mind, Nissan Kicks with Safety Shield 360, which includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, radar-based Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Among the other on-board technologies, Kicks features an available Intelligent Around View Monitor, which provides a virtual composite 360-degree bird's-eye view of the Kicks' exterior.
For the ultimate audio experience, the 2023 Nissan Kicks includes the class- exclusive Bose Speakers, which uses eight speakers and proprietary Bose signal processing to provide what Bose calls. Key to its dynamic sound is a pair of lightweight 2.5-inch Bose UltraNearfield neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks' driver's seat head restraint.
A Bose PersonalSpace Control feature is built into the infotainment system's audio settings, providing adjustable listening options from front-focused sound to a wider, more enveloping experience. The system also includes a digital amplifier with six channels of custom equalisation and digital system processing.
To always keep drivers connected, the new Nissan Kicks also provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
A crossover for the adventurous
Every new Kicks comes with a standard 1.6-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System. The engine is rated at 118 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and a maximum torque of 15.1 Kg-m at 4,000 RPM which is paired with a smooth, Xtronic transmission powering the front wheels.
Kicks offers a standard Traction Control System, Vehicle Dynamic Control and Hill Start Assist, front disc/rear drum Anti-lock Braking System (S grade) and electric power steering.
New for the recently launched Kicks as standard on all grade, is an electronic parking brake with auto hold, which can ease driver workload in certain situations. Kicks also includes an Integrated Dynamic-Control Module, featuring Active Engine Brake, Intelligent Trace Control and Intelligent Ride Control, to help provide a higher level of driving enjoyment.
Nimble handling is provided by a front independent strut, stabiliser bar suspension matched with rear suspension featuring twist beam and twin-tube shock absorbers. The Nissan Kicks SL grade is equipped with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Kicks is also equipped with a total of 6 airbags and Intelligent Driver Alertness.
