2018 Nissan Kicks Offers Fun, Versatility

Nissan Kicks

Compact crossovers are red-hot these days, and they don’t get any hotter — or, for that matter, cooler — than the 2018 Nissan Kicks. The all-new Kicks balances every consideration of what you’d want in a crossover, from tech and intelligence to style and poise. The result is an impressive vehicle that’s got quite a lot to offer.

 

On the inside, the Kicks is cozy and comfortable with a clean, stylish layout, Zero Gravity seats, and 93.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume that tops some of the segment’s stalwarts. For shopping and taking trips, the Kicks offers 25.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 32.3 cubic feet of space with the seats down. Whether it’s bringing the kids to school or running out to pick up groceries, the Kicks has you covered.

 

The 2018 Nissan Kicks is an ideal choice for the individual thanks to Kicks Color Studio, which allows you to customize your ride down to the finest detail. Not only do you have the option to select a contrast roof, but you can match it to your choice of the door handle, mirror cap, bumper accents, wheels, and spoiler. The result is a vehicle that is definitively and completely all yours.

 

To experience why the 2018 Nissan Kicks is no mere compact crossover, stop into Blackburn Nissan for a test drive.

Nissan NP300 Navara Pickup Aims at the Crossover Market

Upon unveiling the NP300 Navara crossover pickup, Nissan has revealed its goal of combining the off-roading capabilities, durability, and capacity of the Navara with all the refined comfort and luxury of a crossover. The all-new vehicle brings the style and quality of a car to the practicality of a pickup truck.

A tough chassis has a host of engineering innovations and features to enhance handling, and the NP300 Navara itself utilizes the same crossover platform that was used to create reputable vehicles such as the Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail. In addition, the NP300 Navara makes use of such cutting-edge safety features as an Around View Monitor, Forward Emergency Braking, Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control, and Hill Start Assist.

Inside, the design of the seats was inspired by NASA technology, while the sculpted design of the dashboard gives the cabin an open feel. The engine is a 2.3-liter dCi engine, considered the cleanest and most economical in its segment and touted as 24% more efficient than previous engines.

The NP300 Navara crossover pickup has improved towing and load capabilities as well to keep up with the pickup market, while also maintaining the stylish design cues and comfort of a car. Four-wheel drive capabilities also ensure the vehicle has just enough traction off the road as on the road. Overall, the Nissan NP300 Navara fuses smooth luxury with rugged practicality.

When you think of Nissan, models like the Altima and Sentra and words like “reliable” and “affordable” generally come to mind. However, in North America, Nissan is following the market and moving its focus to new Nissan crossover models like the Murano and Rogue. New car customers increasingly want a balance of performance, size, and efficiency from their vehicles, and Nissan delivers that thanks to the CUVs.

“The U.S. market (is) moving so quick right now away from traditional sedans to crossovers,” John Martin, senior vice president-manufacturing for Nissan North America, said to WardsAuto. “The dealers were telling us, ‘We’re seeing this switch.’ And we don’t see that switch as stopping.”

Here at Blackburn Nissan, we certainly don’t see it stopping either, so come see us here as soon as possible to check out the beautifully designed Rogue and Murano. Or, if you’re still a sedan man—or woman—we’ve got plenty of those for you as well. Come see our whole inventory today!
