Nissan Kicks to replace Nissan Juke

Recommended Posts

The new Nissan Kicks is slated to replace the Nissan Juke in the 2018 model year.

The Nissan Kicks is a more conservative replacement of the Nissan Juke which spots a more formal design with more straight lines and less funkier design,sporting the corporate grill of Nissan on front of it.

It loses its motorcycle fuel tank inspired gear shifter lever and the funky three tier lights ( two layered headlights)

 

For what I think , it is a sad attempt to conform Nissan products to the mainstream.All manufacturers of cars usually have a set of funky cars that they are proud about and sell decently.More car makers are trying to woo the younger generation to buy their new cars, but Nissan seems to be doing the reverse to woo the older, more mature audience.

Sooner or later, due to the loss of their funky cars, it may sadly make people perceive that Nissans are for the uncles and no one else...

 

I will add in information to the vehicle that is the successor of the Nissan Juke.

Nissan clearly forgotten that the niche market is a small but significant market.

They have qashqai and xtrail for practicality

What is the use for them to make an SUV that will cannibalise sales of qq?

Just discontinue Juke and retire the product line!

Juke not selling well in Singapore does not mean it is not doing well. It's doing great in N America. Other than gtr it is the only current nismo model that is fast n respected.
