You're eager to find out what Nissan has in store for you, and the final countdown has begun. In just a few hours, you'll be face to face with Nissan's new model, and expectations are through the roof. The automaker describes it as “bigger, bolder and better than ever”. Social media is abuzz with the video teaser, and you can't help but speculate about what's to come. Will it be the long-awaited 2025 Nissan Armada? Well, not exactly.

What you are about to see are the Kicks redesigned, with an updated version ready to take on its competitors such as the Chevrolet Trax, Kia Soul or Hyundai Venue.

The video teaser reveals a pair of taillights with a horizontal layout and multiple LED strips, reflecting the shape of the headlights. And what headlights! They flank a grid which appears wide and imposing, promising a striking look.

Nissan also gives us a glimpse of silhouette of the model, and it is clear that we will be dealing with a muscular yet curvy form with robust shoulders. All of this corresponds to what spy photos have revealed over the last few months.

You Kicks not only will they incorporate styling elements from the Juke and Rogue, but they will also maintain their athletic shape with a sloping roof flowing elegantly into a rear window sophisticated.

The Japanese automaker is not just presenting a Kicks redesigned, but it is also bringing new technologies aboard the crossover, while maintaining the accessibility that has always been a hallmark of this model.

It is still uncertain whether Nissan will make changes to the engine lineup, which is not exactly the most powerful. But considering this is just an update, this is likely to remain unchanged.

Currently, the Kicks are powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which generates 122 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission, which sends power to the front axle. There is no all-wheel drive option in the range, something that is also quite rare in this segment.

A Nissan also plans to maintain the same finishes for the Kicks updated. This means the line will start with the basic version s, passing through the intermediary SV, while the MR will be at the top of the line.

As for the price, this will likely be revealed on the market launch date. Currently, the Kicks are one of the most affordable crossovers in America, with the outgoing model starting at US$ 21,050. Already the Kicks SR top of the line costs US$ 23,610.

Meanwhile, one of its main competitors, the Chevrolet Trax, has a starting price of US$ 20,400, while the Kia Soul comes with a suggested retail price of US$ 20,190. O Hyundai Venue it remains the cheapest in the segment, with a starting price of US$ 19,900.
