Canadian Premiere: 2018 Nissan Kicks, the JUKE is Dead, Long Live the Kicks!

The weird, but well-liked Nissan JUKE is no longer available, but its replacement—the Kicks—has already arrived. When it hits the market in summer 2018, people will find a subcompact SUV equipped with a 1.6L four-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower and 115 lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel drive will not be offered; instead, there will be front-wheel drive combined with a continuously variable automatic gearbox. A seven-inch screen will be mounted on the dashboard and, as is now the norm, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will come standard. All trim levels of the Kicks (S, SV and SR) will be equipped with automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning.
