2018 Nissan Kicks

This gorgeous new car, now available at the Bridgewater Nissan dealership in Flemington NJ, is impressive, yet affordable. Featuring automatic air conditioning, cruise control (with steering wheel control), and delayed accessory power, it’s the go-to car for those whose budget may be on the lower end of the spectrum. And what’s more, it provides a mileage of up to 36 mpg (on the highway), and a 3 year warranty (up to 36,000 miles).

Technical specifics:

It has a 1.6L DOHC 16V 4-cylinder engine, a 3.927 axle ratio, and a gas tank that can hold 10.8 gallons. In addition, it has a 120 amp alternator, and front disc/rear drum brakes with 4-wheel ABS, front vented discs, brake assist, and hill hold control. It features a tilt-steering wheel, engine immobilizer, manual tilt/telescoping steering column, urethane gear shift knob, and one 12V DC power outlet.

Exterior details:

The car, available in a range of different colors, has black grille with chrome accents, black rear bumper, black wheel-well trim, black side windows trim, body-colored door handles, body colored front bumper, body colored power-heated side mirrors (with manual folding), light tinted glass, and a clear coat paint. The roof can be ordered in a completely different color.

The Nissan Kicks has 17-inch alloy wheels with painted accents, a steel spare wheel, a compact spare tire mounted under cargo, rear window with a fixed interval wiper and defroster, variable intermittent wipers, fully galvanized steel panels, roof rack rails, and lift gate rear cargo access. The car features Intelligent Auto Headlights (i-Ah), and fully automatic aero-composite halogen headlamps.

This stunning 5 passenger car can be yours for an unbelievable $18,945!

Here are some of its other features: (interior, entertainment and safety)

  • Integrated roof antenna
  • Bluetooth wireless phone connectivity
  • 2 LCD monitors in the front
  • Dual stage driver and passenger seat-mounted side airbags, curtain 1st and 2nd row airbags, dual stage driver and passenger front airbags, driver knee airbag, and airbag occupancy sensor
  • Tire-specific, low tire pressure warning
  • Rear view monitor backup camera (premium option)
  • Blind spot sensor, and warning (premium option)
  • Illuminated glove box
  • Air filtration unit
  • Front and rear cup holders…and so much more!

Final word:

The car experts at Kelley Blue Booklove the Kicks due to its enhanced safety features, and, more than anything else, affordable price. As the Kelley Blue Book puts it: “The Kicks crossover SUV has a lot of positive attributes, but one of its best is its price and its pricing structure, which will appeal to younger drivers and the budget-minded… At a time when the average new car costs over $35,000, the Nissan Kicks is a refreshing value.”

However, the car isn’t without its misgivings. As the ever-reliable source KBB states: “…the Kicks isn’t very powerful. With only 125 horsepower, it’s paltry by even subcompact SUV standards.”

Final word:

The folks at the Kelley Blue Book say: “If you think fresh, new styling is all that differentiates the new Leaf from the previous model, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.”

The car has the same carbon footprint, passenger room, and legroom as the older models, but an impressively increased range. As per the KBB, “While the dimensions of the cabin are about the same, what’s inside is very different. The materials quality has improved, as has the layout.”

On the subject of driver friendliness, they say: “the car feels quick and had plenty of power to stay at speed. Passing power is also good, and the Leaf feels more confident when cornering. In addition, the cabin was quieter than the previous model’s.”

The staff at Bridgewater Nissan unanimously agree that the 2018 Nissan Leaf is a great deal. It’s reasonably priced, with a better range than the competition, better looks, and more features.
