All-new Nissan Kicks launched in Kuwait
KUWAIT, March 18, 2017
Nissan has launched the all-new Kicks compact crossover, its latest addition to the crossover segment in co-ordination with Abdulmohsen Abdulaziz Al Babtain Company, the authorised dealer of Nissan vehicles in Kuwait.
Abdulmohsen Abdulaziz Al Babtain Company (AABC), the authorised dealer of Nissan vehicles in Kuwait, has launched the All-New Nissan Kicks compact crossover in its showrooms, its latest addition to the crossover segment.
The new model combines urban driving environments and a robust exterior and elevated driving position with compact dimensions for agile performance and manoeuvrability.
This is in addition to fuel efficiency, thanks to its engine developed capacity of 1.6 liters along with lightweight to combine driving comfort and savings for all groups, it stated.
Speaking at the launch, Mohammed Shalaby, the chief operating officer for Al Babtain Group, said: "The arrival of the All-New Nissan Kicks to the Kuwaiti market is an added-value, as it combines urban driving environments and combines a robust exterior and elevated driving position with compact dimensions for agile performance and manoeuvrability."
"This is in addition to fuel efficiency, thanks to its engine developed capacity of 1.6 liters along with lightweight to combine driving comfort and savings for all groups," he noted.
The body features an advanced aerodynamic design, which optimizes fuel consumption and minimizes noise. Nissan Kicks is also one of the first models to realize the concept of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, he added.
According to him, Nissan Intelligent Mobility uses smart, relevant technology to make the driver’s life easier while also making advances towards Nissan’s long term goal of zero emission and zero fatality motoring.
Nissan Kicks targets young people who are early adopters of such technology and who appreciate and embrace the way it can both simplify urban driving and connect them more easily to what matters, remarked Shalaby.
The Intelligent Mobility technology present in Kicks aims to reduce stress for drivers through innovations such as the Around View Monitor (AVM) and the Moving Object Detection system (MOD).
Using four cameras, placed at the front and rear of the car and in both door mirrors, AVM creates a bird's eye 360-degree view of the car which can be displayed on the central monitor and used as a parking aid, he explained.
When the MOD system detects a moving object – a pedestrian, for example – a warning is sounded to alert the driver to the hazard and prevent a potential accident, he added.
Nissan said technology-loving Kicks owners will relish the convenience and simplicity of the suite of systems that are accessible via the centrally mounted 7-inch colour touchscreen.
These functions include navigation, audio, and Bluetooth phone connections. Complementing the touchscreen, and ideally located in front of the driver, a further screen in the main cluster of dials relays information from the on-board drive computer, audio system and navigation systems, as well as displaying warnings.
Vehicle settings can be easily adjusted using the four-way selector on the steering wheel, said the auto giant.
Among a host of comfort and safety technologies included in Kicks, its chassis control, supported by advanced electronic systems known as Active Trace Control, Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake, is a truly outstanding feature, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
