Slotting in below the Rogue Sport, the 2018 Kicks expands on the Juke's dimensions without stepping on its bigger brother's toes.
Looks-wise, it stays true to the Kicks Concept that first appeared back in 2014.
Its 1.6-liter I4 puts out 125 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a CVT.
Whereas the Juke earned 29 mpg combined with front-wheel drive, the Kicks is estimated at 33 mpg combined.
There is no all-wheel-drive option.
Safety-tech wonks will be pleased to hear that the Kicks comes standard with autonomous emergency braking and forward collision warning.
SV and SR trims add blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
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.
Three USB ports are standard, as is Bluetooth and a backup camera.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks goes on sale in the spring, and pricing will be announced closer to its on-sale date.
