October 31st, 2018 by

Check out the 2018 Nissan Kicks at Sheridan Nissan! Choose from three great trim models starting at an MSRP of $17,990— one of the most affordable crossover SUVs of its class! Excellent fuel economy, various technological features and ample space are among the great reasons to consider the Nissan Kicks.

Performance and Capability

Nissan Intelligent Mobility™, an advanced technological feature, encompasses a wide range of driver-assist features that allow you, the driver to drive safer and with more confidence in your Nissan Kicks. These include an Intelligent Around View® Monitor (gives you a 360-degree view around the Nissan vehicle), Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Hill Start Assist, Intelligent Engine Braking, Intelligent Trace Control and Active Ride Control. Avoid bumps in the road, unexpected collisions, wheel slippage and anything else that may negatively impact your drive.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks gets 31 mpg city and 36 mpg highway with a combined 33 mpg. Other similar crossover SUVs can’t compete with this fuel economy.

The 2018 Kicks delivers 125 HP and 115 lb.-ft. or torque. The 1.6L 4-Cylinder engine is paired with an XTRONIC® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to ensure efficient and smooth driving.

Additionally, remotely start your engine when you opt for the Intelligent Key. This feature also works with your push to start button. As long as your key is in the car, you can push-start the engine to quickly be on your way.

Create your ideal temperature with Automatic Climate Control and heated front seats.


Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ is also compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so you can always stay connected no matter where you go. Listen to all your favorite songs, audiobooks and podcasts. Using Bluetooth, you can make calls hands-free. Siri® Eyes Free allows you to make voice commands to your iPhone to change songs or call someone back.

Keep your phone and your passenger’s phones charged with 3 USB ports.


Stretch and relax in the 2018 Nissan Kicks. This Nissan crossover allows for 43.7 inches of front headroom, 40.7 inches of front legroom and 38.5 inches of rear headroom. Overall, there is 93.9 cubic feet of passenger volume.

For a weekend getaway, behind the second row, utilize the available 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space. If you need a little more room, the second-row seats make a 60/40 split.


The above-mentioned driver-assist features make for a safer drive, but the Nissan Kicks offers a few more advantageous safety features. These include an advanced air bag system, vehicle dynamic control (VDC) paired with a traction control system (TCS) to always stay firmly planted on the road and LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren). The LATCH system keeps LATCH-compatible child restraints better secured without using seatbelts or locking clips.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks is great for the family weekend trip or the solo daily commute to work. Affordable and spacious with a lot to offer, the Nissan Kicks is sure to fit your needs. Visit Sheridan Nissan to take a test drive and learn more.
