Performance and efficiency can go hand in hand, and Kicks is driving proof of it. Even with a potent 118 horsepower, the combination of advanced engine technologies, like a special coating on the pistons that reduces friction, a lightweight design, and a virtually gearless transmission mean Kicks gets the most out of every drop of fuel.
shift into a gearless future
XTRONIC CVT TRANSMISSION
With the the advanced D-Step CVT transmission, you have a virtually gearless road warrior. It can hold the engine at the ideal engine speed for the job, providing a wave of power when you need it – or low revs for quiet, efficient cruising when you don’t.
being nimble is a sleek move
Lightweight AND aerodynamic
With the use of high-tensile strength steel in key areas and an all-new rear beam suspension, weight was kept to a minimum. Add in a sleek, aerodynamic design and it’s no surprise, efficiency and handling have both been given a big boost.
CORNERING THE MARKET ON THRILLS
Just because Kicks is practical doesn’t mean it isn’t thrilling to drive. With advanced driving dynamics features that help Kicks come alive in the corners, battle rough roads, and slow down smoothly, excitement comes with every twist and turn of the road.
Active trace control
By selectively applying the brakes when
cornering, Active Trace Control can
automatically engage the inner or outer brakes, helping to optimise your line through a turn.
active engine brake
As you apply the brakes, the Active Engine Brake system downshifts the CVT, slowing the vehicle with less effort, while enhancing the feeling of stopping confidence.
active ride control
In the event you’re jostled by a bump in the road, Active Ride Control system kicks in. It works by automatically applying the brakes to help smooth the impact, helping you stay composed and comfortable.
The vehicle’s power steering system adjusts its assistance according to the speed you are travelling. So it becomes more nimble at low speeds, making parking and reversing easier, while at high speeds the system becomes more rigid, increasing feel and response.
Hill start assist
Hill Start Assist helps make sure you won’t roll backwards from a standing start. It works by automatically holding brake pressure for a few seconds, giving you time to switch your foot from the brake to the accelerator.
tight turning radius
You’ll find the tight turning radius of Kicks a lifesaver when manoeuvring through congested city streets. Even getting into tight parking spots will be easier.
