Al Masaood Automobiles, an icon of the UAE’s automotive market and the authorised distributor of Nissan in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and the Western Region, has debuted the new 2022 Nissan KICKS across its Abu Dhabi showrooms.
The 2022 Nissan KICKS has been refreshed with updates to provide even more features, technology, customised style, and value that buyers seek in a compact crossover. Its style and technology upgrades place a large focus on enhancing connectivity, innovation, and personalisation to meet the growing needs of urban customers in the region.
Bachir Gemayel, General Manager – Nissan Sales, Al Masaood Automobiles, said: “Car enthusiasts in Abu Dhabi will find the 2022 edition packed with more power and elegance. The highly customisable crossover boasts of new exterior styling and colour options aside from its refined interior and enhanced connectivity. Beyond that, its significant technology boost involves Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) upgrades and advanced driver assist system integration for better and safer driving.”
The exterior of the latest KICKS version sees an aesthetic upgrade with the incorporation of Nissan’s Double V-motion grille, new front and rear bumpers and an array of bold new colours, including new two-tone combinations.
While maintaining KICKS’ compact urban crossover dimensions – with its large interior space and nimble, city-sized exterior for easy manoeuvrability – the extensive exterior changes immediately set KICKS apart from the competition.
The updated interior, on the other hand, features a new centre console, new seating and trim materials, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, and BOSE headrest speakers. The 2022 KICKS interior also has a new stylish and premium feel, highlighted by the SL grades’ new seat colour and door trim design and full centre console with an armrest.
As for its NIM technology upgrades, the 2022 Nissan KICKS is now equipped with Intelligent Around View® Monitor, as well as Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. All of these class-leading features are complemented by upgraded chassis control to provide superior ride comfort and control.
Available in three well-equipped trims, the redesigned 2022 KICKS comes with a standard 1.6-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System. The engine, which is rated at 118 horsepower and 155 Newton Metres of torque, is paired with a smooth, Xtronic transmission powering the front wheels
The newest version is expected to appeal to the young, enthusiastic drivers that the KICKS brand has known to attract since its introduction to the region in 2017. In a short time since its regional market entry, KICKS has established a reputation for offering an impressive array of class-leading features with equally attractive value.
The 2022 model is now available in Abu Dhabi against the backdrop of KICKS’ increasing success in our market.
