Expected to be in all Nissan dealerships in Brazil starting August 5, the Nissan Kicks will deliver an agile but fuel-efficient driving experience, according to the automaker. Brazil is the first country to launch the new model, which will then be introduced in several countries in Latin America by the end of the year, and will ultimately be available in more than 80 countries.
The Nissan Kicks includes technology such as around view monitor and moving object detection systems, which use four integrated cameras to show an overall view of the car and warn the driver in case of any unseen dangers. It also features chassis dynamic control, active trace control, active ride control, and active engine braking. It boasts class-leading fuel efficiency thanks to its advanced 1.6L engine and lightweight platform, according to the company.
The Nissan Kicks will be produced in the industrial complex of Nissan in Resende (RJ) from the first quarter of 2017. Nissan said it has invested $ 262.5 million in the factory, which completed two years of operation in April, to adapt it for Kicks production.
