Nissan’s exciting crossover range impresses auto enthusiasts
Known for its dynamic performances, Nissan’s crossover range has been impressing auto enthusiasts through its smart styling, spacious and effortless to drive features.
An official from Nissan Oman, from the house of Suhail Bahwan Automobiles (SBA), said, “Our crossover range such as Nissan Kicks, Pathfinder 3.5l and X-Trail are hugely popular among customers because they find it practical, they like the design and space and the fact that it is packed with technology. They are especially popular with young and first-time buyers who are early adopters to technology and who appreciate the way these vehicles can simplify urban driving.”
All-new Nissan Kicks
The all-new Nissan Kicks was developed with the aim of delivering the most innovative, stylish and functional crossover in its class. The car’s advanced chassis control technology allows it to deal with the rough and tumble of the urban jungle, while the drivers will love the ease of parking thanks to the Around View Monitor (AVM) and the amazing functionality of the seveninch colour touchscreen.
The newcomer is aimed squarely at urban driving environments and combines a robust exterior and elevated driving po- sition with compact dimensions for agile performance and manoeuvrability. The body features an advanced aerodynamic design, which optimises fuel consumption and minimises noise.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility uses smart, relevant technology to make the driver’s life easier while also making advances towards Nissan’s long term goal of zero emission and zero fatality motoring. The Intelligent Mobility technology present in Kicks aims to reduce stress for drivers through innovations such as the AVM and the Moving Object Detection system (MOD). 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. 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 Nissan Kicks owners will relish the convenience and simplicity of the suite of systems that are accessible via the centrally mounted seven-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 on-board 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.
In terms of its visual appeal, Kicks features established Nissan 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 spacious interior too is instantly recognisable as a Nissan design, thanks to the ‘gliding wing’ shape stretching the width of the dashboard.
