Base MSRP range $17,990 – $20,290 Nissan is replacing the funky-looking Juke with the Kicks, an all-new entry in the growing segment of subcompact SUVs. Unlike the Juke, the Kicks won't offer a turbo engine or all-wheel drive. It's really a budget car designed to appeal to those customers who would normally buy a Nissan Sentra or Versa Note but are attracted to a more versatile and fashionable SUV styling. The Car Connection Expert Review Likes Distinctive styling Standard automatic emergency braking City-size dimensions Dislikes Decidedly short on power No AWD? Could be a great value The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a high-riding compact hatchback, but its spec sheet doesn't look very thrilling. The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a far more conventional crossover than its Juke predecessor. That doesn't mean it's a dullard in the looks department, though. On sale in other parts of the world for the last few years, the 2018 Kicks arrives here in the U.S. with dramatic styling not matched by underhood muscle. With just 125 horsepower from its naturally aspirated, 1.6-liter inline-4 engine shuttled to the front wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), the Kicks could probably use a kick in the pants. We'll know more when we drive one soon, but 125 hp and 115 pound-feet of torque puts the Kicks among the least-powerful new cars sold in the U.S. At least initially, the Kicks will not be offered with all-wheel drive. Underneath, a strut-type front suspension and a twist-beam rear axle are economy-car grade. Base versions of the Kicks ride on 16-inch steel wheels, while uplevel SV and SR trims feature 17-inch alloys. Where the crossover stands out is in the looks department. A gaping grille up front and the illusion of a floating roof line help the Kicks avoid the awkward, frog-like appearance of the Juke. From head-to-toe, the Kicks stretches just 169.1 inches, which puts it about three inches shorter than the more bulbous Rogue Sport. The Kicks is just 69.3 inches wide and stands a mere 62.4 inches tall, splitting the difference between subcompact hatchbacks and small crossovers. The sharp uptick to the crossover's belt line ahead of its rearmost roof pillar may cut into rearward visibility, but higher-spec models include blind-spot monitors and a rearview camera is standard on all trim levels. Inside, the Kicks is more conventional. It's technically a five-seater, but the back seat is far more appropriate for two than for three passengers. Front seat riders are treated to supportive seats wrapped in fabric; no leather upholstery is available, further emphasizing the Kicks' entry-level positioning. Rear seat space may be predictably tight, but the cargo area is a surprisingly commodious 25.3 cubic feet with the split-folding second row upright. That's a figure closer to what we'd expect to find in a compact crossover and not a subcompact like the Kicks. The Kicks will be available in S, SV, and SR trim levels. Aside from a few minor options, most Kicks buyers will need only to pick their color and price point. All Kicks crossovers will come standard with automatic emergency braking, automatic headlights, and Bluetooth connectivity. SV trims add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto displayed via a 7.0-inch screen for infotainment, plus alloy wheels, automatic climate control, and keyless ignition. Topping the lineup is the Kicks SR that includes some appearance upgrades like LED accent lights and LED low-beam headlights plus a surround-view camera system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated exterior mirrors. A Premium Package for the SR adds Bose-branded audio, heated front seats, and a few other goodies. The 2018 Nissan Kicks costs $18,965 to start, and runs up to $21,265 for an SR-equipped version.

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment? (+) Still looks smart Above-average cabin practicality Improved on-road refinement Good cabin build quality AEB now standard across the range (-) It's pretty expensive Can feel underpowered Key active safety reserved for top models Ti, adaptive cruise not here until mid-2018 Tyre roar, busy ride on 19-inch wheels Still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto There's no denying that the Nissan Qashqai is a popular choice amongst Australian buyers. Since the second generation of the Japanese crossover landed on our shores in 2014, the company has sold more than 38,000 of them locally (to the end of October 2017) and some 3.3 million worldwide. While pitched as a small SUV, the Qashqai straddles the small and medium segments in terms of size, offering interior space and luggage capacity that's comparable to numerous vehicles from the class above. However, the Nissan has lost some sales ground of late to the ever-popular Mazda CX-3, along with the almost-prehistoric Mitsubishi ASX. For 2018, Nissan has given the Qashqai a mid-life refresh, bringing a new look, added driver-assistance technologies, and more equipment across the range. All models now feature autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with forward-collision warning as standard, along with lane-departure warning. Further up the range, adaptive cruise control is offered for the first time on the Ti model – though that won't be here until mid-2018 – while the N-Tec gains rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive headlights. CarAdvice attended the local launch of the updated range in Daylesford, Victoria, to get a first drive of the refreshed crossover over a mix of country roads and highways. We spent the first two-hour drive loop in the new N-Tec variant (from $36,490), and the second stint the following day in the also-new mid-spec ST-L (from $32,990). The ST-L basically replaces the outgoing TS diesel in terms of where it sits in the line-up, while the N-Tec is filling in for the Ti flagship as the latter won't arrive until mid-2018 due to production delays. In terms of equipment, the ST-L features a 7.0-inch navigation system, 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, LED daytime-running lights, heated front seats with electric driver's adjustment, and a surround-view camera system with moving object detection. There's also heated electric-folding door mirrors, privacy glass, DAB+ digital radio and roof rails over the base ST. Meanwhile, the N-Tec certainly stands out from its lesser brethren thanks to its full-LED headlights and stylish 19-inch alloy wheels. The only other feature that helps distinguish the N-Tec (and soon Ti) from the ST and ST-L grades is the silver garnish on the rear bumper, which has a diffuser-like shape. Equipment highlights in the N-Tec include automatic and adaptive headlights, a panoramic glass sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a fold-down rear centre armrest, dual-zone climate control and ambient interior lighting. Compared to the ST-L, the N-Tec also gains several driver-assistance technologies like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, intelligent park assist, intelligent driver alert and high-beam assist. Unfortunately, a global production delay means that adaptive cruise control and active lane assist are not available until March 2018 production, hence why the Ti is unavailable until midway through next year. There's still no sign of smartphone mirroring systems like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto either, though we could see this tech offered in the Nissan stable very soon. Inside, the redesigned front seats that are standard from the ST-L up are quite comfortable, offering good thigh and back support, while also being well bolstered through the sides to give that 'hugging' feel. Both the ST-L and N-Tec get leather bolsters with cloth inserts, which makes for a supple area to rest your bum, while the leather-trimmed bolsters look and feel of a high quality. Now for the driving. All variants are fitted with the same 2.0-litre aspirated petrol engine developing modest outputs of 106kW at 6000rpm and 200Nm at 4400rpm. The outgoing model's 1.6-litre turbo-diesel has been dropped due to slow sales. Unfortunately, Australia also misses out on the 120kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbo petrol offered in overseas markets like the UK, though this is probably because it's only offered with a manual. Meanwhile, all versions bar the entry-level ST (from $26,490) are fitted as standard with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), while the entry-level model comes standard with a six-speed manual, though the CVT is optional.

2019 SUZUKI JIMNY SIERRA Exterior and Interior - First Look!!! Likewise with the past age demonstrate, the 2019 Jimny comes in two flavors: the smaller than expected car (sold solely in Japan as the Jimny), and the minimized car (sold as the 2019 Suzuki Jimny Sierra in Japan). The principle distinction between them is that the previous highlights a 0.66-liter R06A three-barrel turbocharged gas motor while the last accompanies a recently created 1.5-liter K15B normally suctioned four-chamber unit. The worldwide New Suzuki Jimny Sierra intrigues us the most, and the huge change is a 1.5-liter motor supplanting the previous model's 1.3-liter unit. It conveys 102 metric strength (100 bhp) at 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. Those are solid increments of 17 hp and 20 Nm over the active model, with Suzuki saying the driver currently has more torque at all rpm. The best speed remains very unobtrusive at 145 km/h (90 mph), in any case.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t thrill, but its pert styling and good value make it worth a look.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks stretches the definition of crossover SUV. Its perky styling may be butch in just enough places to hint at utility, but pint-size dimensions, limited underhood muscle, and no option for all-wheel drive confine the 2018 Kicks to feeling more like a little hatchback with verve.
Viewed as the tall hatchback that it is—it shares its platform with the budget-grade Nissan Versa, after all—the Kicks delivers a modern, pleasant driving experience for not much cash.
The 2018 Kicks is available in a trio of trim levels—S, SV, SR—that share a 1.6-liter inline-4 engine rated at a paltry 125 horsepower paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive. With just 2,650 pounds to shuffle around, the Kicks isn’t slow, but it’s not exactly a corner carver, either. It’s also short on off-roading credentials since all-wheel drive isn’t on the options list.
The Kicks’ expressive exterior gives way to a muted, but well-equipped interior. Four adults fit fine as long as they’re not broad-shouldered, and the 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat will swallow their suitcases. Let’s just hope they’re merely driving to the airport, since the Kicks struggles at highway speeds.
That little engine that kind of, sort of could doesn’t impart a big penalty at the pump; the Kicks is rated at 31 mpg city, 36 highway, 33 combined, according to the EPA.
At about $19,000, the base Kicks S is cheap, cheerful, and not lacking for too much. That price includes surprising safety gear like automatic emergency braking, plus a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Bluetooth with a trio of USB charging ports. The Kicks SV runs $1,700 more but seems worth the cash for its upgraded infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, and configurable LCD screen in the instrument cluster.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks looks more bold than its limited underhood muscle suggests.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t look like a frog. Its predecessor, the Nissan Juke, certainly did. Whether that’s a good thing is up to you, but we prefer the Kicks’ more cohesive appearance and its comparatively subtle styling charms.
The Kicks sits slightly higher than a typical five-door hatchback, yet its seating position won’t be confused with a crossover.
Up front, the Kicks looks downright conventional, kicking the Juke’s bug-eyed headlights to the curb in favor of a wide grille. At the rear, the angular taillights could have been plucked from just about any other car or crossover in Nissan’s lineup. The unpainted bumpers and fender flares save Nissan a few bucks while giving the Kicks a more rugged feel than its lack of all-wheel drive would otherwise suggest.
Standard 16-inch wheels on the Kicks S look downmarket, but Nissan figures most buyers will opt for the SV with its 17-inch alloy wheels and its available contrasting roof that makes the most of its “floating” rearmost pillar.
Inside, the Kicks breaks little new ground. Its dash features a 7.0-inch touchscreen for—with more sophisticated software and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto on SV and SR trims—but the screen washes out in bright light. A textured panel adds some visual interest and we actually like it more than the stitched vinyl covering that’s on SRs with the Premium package.
Nissan could have played a little more with fun colors and materials inside the Kicks, but the overall look is about right for its low price tag.
