Nissan launches new Kicks compact crossover

Nissan has launched the all-new Nissan Kicks compact crossover in Bahrain, its latest addition to the crossover segment. Mohamed Almoayyed, Director, YK Almoayyed & Sons, senior management and members of the media attended the launch.

The first appearance of the Nissan Kicks was in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and since then has been found in over 80 countries worldwide.

Ranjit Nair, Senior Manager – Sales Marketing of Nissan Bahrain said: “The all- new Nissan Kicks was developed to be the most innovative, stylish and functional crossover in its class. It is equipped with advanced technologies making the vehicle comfortable to drive, in addition to being strong and stable thanks to the advanced chassis control technology.”

Nissan kept its 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 interior is spacious too, which instantly is recognizable as a Nissan design thanks to the “gliding wing” shape stretching the width of the dashboard. 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.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility uses smart, relevant technology that appeals to the young drivers that want a simple driving experience in addition to being connected 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). This goes well with Nissan’s long term goal of zero emission and zero fatality motoring.

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.

Also, Active Ride Control, helps stabilize the car if it hits any bumps
in the road or anything that will cause
a ‘bounce” effect on the suspension
by applying the brakes for a split-second after the encounter. Finally,
the Active Engine Brake is the last of
the electric trio which main purpose is to stabilize the speed when the accelerator is released while approaching a corner. This “cruising” effect is often associated with automatic and CVT gearboxes.

The kicks 7-inch colour touchscreen is a joy for all technology lovers. Simple to use, the driver will have access to many functions such as: navigation, audio and Bluetooth phone connections.
