Nis­san ‘KICKS’ 2018 is now avail­able with a new vari­ant

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

KUWAIT: Ab­dul­mohsen Ab­du­laziz AlBab­tain Com­pany (AABC), the sole au­tho­rized dealer of Nis­san ve­hi­cles in the State of Kuwait, is ex­cited to an­nounce that the 2018 edi­tion of the New Nis­san KICKS com­pact crossover is now avail­able in its show­rooms, with an in­cred­i­bly af­ford­able price start­ing from KD 4,950 only.

Nis­san KICKS is com­pat­i­ble to all the driv­ing con­di­tions with its ro­bust ex­te­rior and el­e­vated driv­ing po­si­tion, with its com­pact di­men­sions and fuel ef­fi­ciency, thanks to its en­gine de­vel­oped ca­pac­ity of 1.6 liters along with light­weight and plenty of cargo space mea­sur­ing 432 litres to com­bine driv­ing com­fort and sav­ings for all groups.

Fur­ther­more, the 2018 edi­tion comes with in­creased flex­i­bil­ity and price op­tions, sat­is­fy­ing all cus­tomer seg­ments. Nis­san KICKS meets the needs of car-buy­ers in the city due to its in­no­va­tive, stylish and prac­ti­cal de­sign as a com­pact crossover ve­hi­cle. Nis­san KICKS has a high driv­ing seat po­si­tion with small di­men­sions to en­sure smooth per­for­mance and bet­ter ma­neu­ver­abil­ity. The ex­te­rior struc­ture has a dy­namic aero­dy­namic de­sign that con­trib­utes to fuel econ­omy and re­duces noise. Nis­san Kicks is also one of the first models to em­body the con­cept of Nis­san In­tel­li­gent Mo­bil­ity in which it has been un­veiled at the “Geneva Mo­tor Show 2016”. Us­ing four cam­eras, placed at the front and rear of the car and in both door mir­rors, AVM cre­ates a bird’s eye 360de­gree view of the car which can be dis­played on the cen­tral mon­i­tor and used as a park­ing aid. When the MOD sys­tem de­tects a mov­ing ob­ject - a pedes­trian, for ex­am­ple - a warn­ing is sounded to alert the driver to the hazard and pre­vent a po­ten­tial ac­ci­dent.

Tech­nol­ogy-lov­ing KICKS own­ers will rel­ish the con­ve­nience and sim­plic­ity of the suite of sys­tems that are ac­ces­si­ble via the cen­trally mounted 7-inch colour touch­screen. These func­tions in­clude nav­i­ga­tion, au­dio, and Blue­tooth phone con­nec­tions. Com­ple­ment­ing the touch­screen, and ide­ally lo­cated in front of the driver, a fur­ther screen in the main clus­ter of di­als re­lays in­for­ma­tion from the on­board drive com­puter, au­dio sys­tem and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems, as well as dis­play­ing warn­ings. Ve­hi­cle set­tings can be eas­ily ad­justed us­ing the four-way se­lec­tor on the steer­ing wheel.

Ac­tive Trace Con­trol is an in­no­va­tion that in­ter­venes dur­ing driv­ing through cor­ners to en­sure the in­tended tra­jec­tory is main­tained by dis­creetly ap­ply­ing brakes to wheels in­di­vid­u­ally. This has the ef­fect of pre­vent­ing a sud­den loss of grip or sta­bil­ity. Un­der­lin­ing the car’s crossover stance and in­her­ent strength is its gen­er­ous ground clear­ance (200mm), which helps pro­vide a com­mand­ing driv­ing po­si­tion and a high eye point for ex­cel­lent all round vis­i­bil­ity.

Nis­san KICKS has class-lead­ing fuel ef­fi­ciency thanks to its ad­vanced 1.6liter en­gine and light­weight plat­form. Power is rated at 88kW (118HP) and torque of 149Nm with cargo space of 432 liters.
