5 reasons to buy the 2018 Nissan Kicks

1. Ideal for city cruising  

If you regularly drive through congested city streets, the 2018 Nissan Kicks is a great choice. The compact size allows for easy parking in crowded areas, while its nimble handling makes weaving through traffic a breeze. Whether you're running errands, commuting to work, or enjoying a night out on the town, the Kicks' agility makes it a great fit for anyone in the market for a subcompact crossover SUV. 

2. Ample cargo space 

While the Kicks may be compact, it surprises with its versatility when it comes to cargo space. Expect 25 cu-ft of cargo space behind the second-row bench seat. Plus, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats allow you to expand the cargo space, making it suitable for packing gear, shopping sprees, or even light DIY projects. It's the ideal companion for those who need to carry various loads without sacrificing passenger comfort. 

3. Stylish exterior  

Arrive in style with the 2018 Kicks. Its eye-catching design — highlighted by the signature floating roof and darkened window pillars, plus a slate of vibrant color options — ensures you make a lasting impression wherever you go. Add in the two-tone color paint scheme, which is available on the SV and SR upgraded trims, and you'll stand out even more. Roof rails are standard across all trims as well, and SR models even include a rear roof spoiler. 

4. Comfortable drive 

Planning a weekend getaway or a long road trip? If you spend a lot of time behind the wheel, you'll appreciate the Kicks' comfortable interior. The spacious cabin provides ample legroom for both the driver and passengers (up to 43.7 inches in the front), making long commutes or road trips a more enjoyable experience. The supportive seats and quiet ride add to the overall comfort, whether it's just you and a friend or the whole family.  

5. Easy to stay connected  

Stay connected on the go with the Kicks' user-friendly, seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Additional standard features include three USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, and Bluetooth® connectivity. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration are offered on SV and SR trims, so you can use your smartphone for hands-free calling, navigation, and music streaming. Take it up a notch with a Bose® audio system for crystal-clear sound, available on Kicks with an SR Premium package.
