Nissan wants a bigger piece of the small crossover pie, and it has a new set of wheels to accomplish just that.

By the way, the Kicks first started in Brazil past year and then expanded into other South American markets.

Nissan says a well-equipped Kicks will come in for under $19,000 when the auto goes on sale in June 2018. Every 2018 Kicks comes with a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS).The 2018 Kicks will be offered in a range of seven exterior colors - plus five two-tone combinations.

The lack of all-wheel drive is because the Kicks is likely bound to live its life between the parking meters, in cities, like the Juke.

It's a JUKE That said, although Nissan insists on the fact that the Kicks has nothing to do with the Nissan JUKE, there are mechanical components that prove otherwise.

Aesthetically, the 2018 Nissan Kicks stands out with bold wheel arches and a high crossover stance, not to mention familiar Nissan design signatures including a V-Motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights and a "floating" roof.

Nissan will present three models for the U.S. market namely Kicks S, Kicks SV and Kicks SR. (The all-wheel-drive Rogue Sport is 0.9 inch taller than the Kicks.) Compared to the Juke, the Kicks is 6.7 inches longer, 0.6 inch taller, and 0.2 inch narrower.

Inside the 2018 Kicks delivers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity via a 7.0-inch full colour display built into the "Gliding Wing" dashboard. The SV adds blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts and the SR gets a 360-degree monitor. Heated front seats are optional on the SR trim, as is a Bose premium audio system. The Nissan Kicks went on sale last year in certain markets outside the US, and it'll finally coming to a dealership near you in June of next year (assuming you live in America).

Standard security features, on the other hand, include Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning.
