The city designation also means the Kicks is front-wheel drive only. In this video, watch for the North American premiere of the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks compact utility vehicle (CUV). SV and SR models also ad blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert.

"As the gateway to Nissan's adventure-ready sport-utility portfolio - joining Rogue Sport, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder and Armada - Kicks is created to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for expressive styling, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features at an affordable price starting well under $19,000", said Dan Mohnke, senior VP of Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan North America.

Inside, four passengers can climb aboard but with roughly three fewer inches head-to-toe than the Rogue Sport we expect that space may be cramped in the rear for bigger adults. 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. Nissan promises an EPA combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 33 mpg.

Undocumented immigrant acquitted in shooting that sparked sanctuary-city debate
The illegal immigrant who shot Kate Steinle has been found not guilty on all but one charge involving possession of a weapon. The bullet, shot from a stolen gun, ricocheted off the concrete before striking Steinle.

Similar to direct rivals like the Kia Soul and Toyota C-HR, the Kicks is offered in front-wheel drive only. A handful of options dress up (or dress down) the exterior including 16-inch steel wheels on base versions or an available rear roof spoiler. Blind-spot monitors and a surround-view camera system are optional. On higher trim levels, heated seats, leather-wrapped interior components, automatic climate control, and a Bose sound system are available.

Safety is paramount on the Kicks, with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) coming standard, and additional active safety features included as you move from Kicks S up to Kicks SV and Kicks SR trims.

Nissan didn't provide pricing for the new crossover, but the brand noted the Kicks will be very competitive when it goes on sale in June 2018.
