The current generation Nissan Kicks was launched in 2016. As per the original plan, the Japanese parent brand will introduce the new generation Kicks in 2023. However, a series of problems ranging from quality testing (the Kicks did not pass internal safety tests) to production assembly equipment being stolen) pushed the car’s launch date to June 2024.
While waiting for the launch of the new Nissan Kicks, users can refer to the design of the car through the test version with the latest appearance arriving at the end of August 2023.
Overall, the new Nissan Kicks has a more mature, mature and “popular” styling to attract a wider customer base.
There is a new radiator at the front of the car, with horizontal spokes instead of the U-shaped radiator of the older version. The front light clusters on either side look slimmer with a completely new daytime light interface.
As of now, changes to the interior and powertrain of the new Nissan Kicks are unknown. The car is expected to bring the hybrid version to the mainstream, even the only variant in many markets, as the company is doing in Vietnam.
This hybrid version could have its parameters upgraded instead of combining the 79 horsepower/103Nm engine with the existing 129 horsepower/280Nm electric motor.
In Vietnam, Nissan Kicks is a car line that customers are interested in, especially when car prices are continuously lowered to increase competitiveness. Previously, the prices of Nissan Kicks were often compared with Honda HR-V and Toyota Corolla Cross. But now this car has come in the lower segment at par with Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta.
