2018 Nissan Kicks is a Brazilian-designed Juke replacement

It's a bit less quirky than it used to be, but it packs solid tech and it has more space for people and cargo alike.

Slotting in below the Rogue Sport, the 2018 Kicks expands on the Juke's dimensions without stepping on its bigger brother's toes.

The Kicks comes with just one infotainment setup -- a 7.0-inch screen that packs both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, although you have to move up to the mid-grade Kicks SV to get those two connectivity options.
