The Nissan Kicks Concept has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show, in a world premiere.
After it has started its public life with a couple of teaser images, released over the past few weeks, the brand new Nissan Kicks Concept is now being placed into the spotlights once again, as the company has officially pulled the wraps off its body, during the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show, in Brazil. The model in question is offering a first look into a future production compact crossover which will go on sale on the Brazilian market where small crossovers are highly appreciated due to poor road surfaces.
“Where the stance of the Frontier pick-up might be compared to a power lifter and the GT-R a world-class sprinter, the Kicks Concept is like a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu fighter – coiled for action and precise in every movement”, said Mamoru Aoki, the executive design director.
The Nissan Kicks Concept is previewing a compact crossover which will stand below the current Juke and this is basically a second show car to debut at the expo in recent years, after the Extrem Coupe Concept, back in 2012. The model is the result of a collaboration between the company’s design studios in San Diego and Rio, coming with a “floating” roof design and being 4,300 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,600 mm tall, riding on 19-inch alloy wheels. The final production version of the model will be aimed towards emerging markets so you won’t see it in Europe or in the U.S.
