  • Nissan Kicks succeeds the Juke with less polarizing looks

And Nissan has chosen California - the Los Angeles Auto Show to be exact - to reveal the 2018 Kicks, the brand's newest compact crossover. The 2018 Nissan Kicks will be on sale in early summer 2018.

And like the Juke, the Kicks steps out there style-wise, but without the frog-eyed look. Or should we say a new pair of Kicks? With a wheelbase of 103.1 inches, the Kicks is longer than the Juke's 99.6-inch wheelbase but 1.1 inches shorter than the Rogue Sport.

Nevertheless, the Nissan Kicks still features distinctive and expressive aesthetics with styling cues inspired by the Kicks Concept - introduced at the São Paulo International Motor Show in 2014. The car's design was a collaborative effort between Nissan Design America San Diego and Rio de Janeiro and was overseen by the automaker's gobal design center in Japan. Notable design elements include a bold V-motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights, a wraparound windshield and a "floating" roof design.

Nissan Kicks Debuts in America Will Replace the Juke

The cabin of the America spec Kicks gets a black cabin with silver inserts for the crucial bits like the steering, AC vents and touchscreen infotainment system. On higher trim levels, heated seats, leather-wrapped interior components, automatic climate control, and a Bose sound system are available.

Automatic emergency braking and forward-collision warning come standard, a move we applaud here at CR.

While Nissan calls the Kicks an SUV, it will not be available with all-wheel drive, making it more of a tall hatchback, a faux-off-roader for city dwellers who want the improved sight lines an SUV's greater stature delivers. Paired to it will be the company's proven Xtronic CVT transmission, with Nissan expecting a combined fuel economy rating of 33mpg. The base Kicks S model receives 16-inch steel wheels, while higher-trim SV and SR models earn 17-inch alloy wheels. It's the 2018 Nissan Kicks, a subcompact utility vehicle that will be positioned below the Qashqai in the product lineup.
