Nissan Kick Accessories

This may not apply globally, but Nissan Brazil has release info about the Nissan Kicks' range of outdoor friendly accessories including:
-transverse roof bar
-luggage rack
-storage box
-bicycle mounting stand
-bumper frames
-under carriage protector (Protects the crankcase and other items)

Personally don't care for anything on the list aside from the transverse roof bar.

I would probably opt for the under body protection. Depending on where I end up taking the kicks, I'm always concerned about the under body as I've had some friends end up in some real bad situations without even realizing it.

You do have a good point about the under carriage protector, I have accidentally driven over debris on the freeway before when there were no lights at night. Luckily, all it did was loosen the plastic bit near the boot and was easily fixed with a zip tie.

That's definitely a lucky one but it is something that would bother me. I've seen people hit debris that has caused damage to their oil pan and that's something you definitely don't want breaking. You wouldn't even realize it and by the time the oil all drains out, that could lead to some catastrophic failure.

Perhaps the Nissan Kicks sits high enough to avoid most debris on the road and anything large enough to scratch its underbelly should be visible from far away, but I'm once bitten twice shy kind of person. So skid plates are a must.

I'm sure it'll sit high enough for regular motorways and what not that it'll be able to avoid things like truck tire shreds (very common where I am) but I agree with you on that. I like to avoid a potential situation before anything happens. Best to play it safe right?

The best part about skid plates is that there really isn't any sort of drawback to them at all, it's just extra protection and that's it.

I'm not ever merely worried about any of that stuff when it comes to engine undercovers, what's matters more for me is that it prevents road salt from building up, the more that can be done to keep it out the better for me. Cleaning the underbody isn't easy.

Where I am, along with the road salt, they also use a type of brine liquid. A problem that could arise from all of this is a buildup in between those covers and the underbody which will induce more rust as you'd have to take the covers off to properly clean them.

Not sure how effective the under carriage protector will be against a liquid, but for general debris it should be fine. I'm interested in their alarm system too, supposed to prevent thieves breaking your glass by detecting movements in the interior through an ultrasound system. Just need to see it employed and the price.

If it doesn't come with a 2 way pager, I'd probably pass on that and install something aftermarket. I'd rather have a separate pager and with todays technology, they typically have a vehicle image that displays where the car has been touched or whatever.
