Dual tone Nissan KICKS available in three choices - grey with orange roof; orange with black roof; and white with orange roof
Dubai, United Arab Emirates: March 19, 2019 – Nissan has made the award-winning Nissan KICKS even more distinctive for Middle East customers and enthusiasts, with the introduction of three new Dual Tone options.
Customers now have the freedom to choose the colours for their favourite Nissan KICKS that match their expectations and define their individuality. There are three bold colour options to choose from: grey with orange roof; orange with black roof; or white with orange roof – all assured to stand out and add to the personality and personal preferences of the motorists.
Kalyana Sivagnanam, Regional Vice President, Marketing and Sales, AMI said: “Since its launch in February 2017, the Nissan KICKS has become the market leader in the B-SUV segment with the car celebrating its 10,000th sale in the region last month. The Nissan KICKS offers class leading levels of safety, practicality, efficiency and value for money. Now, customers have even greater choice when it comes to expressing their unique personalities through their cars, that fits the needs of the new generation.”
Over the past year, the Nissan KICKS has forged ahead with highly impressive sales results, leading its segment in terms of market share, recording a yearly growth of almost five percent from last year.
Apart from the choice of the dual tone options, Nissan KICKS assures economic fuel consumption with its advanced 1.6 litre engine and lightweight platform. Furthermore, the Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) enhances its safety features and transforms it from just a car into a driver’s responsive partner. With versatile interiors, easier rear cargo access, a tire pressure monitoring system, and several stand-out elements, Nissan KICKS sets benchmarks in the compact crossover segment.
The Nissan Kicks was developed with the modern urban commuter in mind, with the aim of delivering the most innovative, stylish and functional crossover in its class. These commuters will appreciate the car’s ability to deal with the rough and tumble of the urban jungle courtesy of its advanced chassis control technology. They will also love the ease of parking thanks to the Around View Monitor and the amazing functionality of the 7-inch color touchscreen. From the cosseting interior to the bold styling to the advanced technology, everywhere you look on the car there is evidence to back up why the Kicks is a big hit with young people all over our region.
The body features an advanced aerodynamic design, which optimizes fuel consumption and minimizes road-and-wind noise. Kicks is also one of the first models to realize the concept of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility uses smart, relevant technology to make the driver’s life easier while also making advances towards Nissan’s long term goal of zero emission and zero fatality motoring. Nissan Kicks targets young people who are early adopters of such technology and who appreciate and embrace the way it can both simplify urban driving and connect them more easily to what matters. The Intelligent Mobility technology present in Kicks aims to reduce stress for drivers through innovations such as the Around View Monitor (AVM) and the Moving Object Detection system (MOD).
Using four cameras, placed at the front and rear of the car and in both door mirrors, AVM creates a bird's eye 360-degree view of the car which can be displayed on the central monitor and used as a parking aid.
When the MOD system detects a moving object – a pedestrian, for example – a warning is sounded to alert the driver to the hazard and prevent a potential accident.
Technology-loving Kicks owners will relish the convenience and simplicity of the suite of systems that are accessible via the centrally mounted 7-inch colour touchscreen. These functions include navigation, audio, and Bluetooth phone connections. Complementing the touchscreen, and ideally located in front of the driver, a further screen in the main cluster of dials relays information from the on-board drive computer, audio system and navigation systems, as well as displaying warnings. A digital tachometer also adds a futuristic feel to the interior. Vehicle settings can be easily adjusted using the four-way selector on the steering wheel.
Among a host of comfort and safety technologies included in Kicks, its chassis control, supported by advanced electronic systems known as Active Trace Control, Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake, is a truly outstanding feature.
In terms of its visual appeal, Kicks features established Nissan design signatures such as the V-motion grille which dominates the car’s front end. Also present are the boomerang head and taillights, and the “floating” coupé-style roof with a “wrap-around visor” look to the windscreen and side glass. The spacious interior too, is instantly recognizable as a Nissan design thanks to the “gliding wing” shape stretching the width of the dashboard.
Underlining the car's crossover stance and inherent strength is its generous ground clearance (200mm), which helps provide a commanding driving position and a high eye point for excellent all round visibility.
Nissan Kicks has class-leading fuel efficiency thanks to its advanced 1.6-liter engine and lightweight platform. Power is rated at 88kW (118HP) and torque of 149Nm.
