Anytime Soon?

The Nissan Kicks is quite appealing to me, but it doesn't seem like Nissan will be offering it to the NA market anytime soon, or will they? Has anyone heard anything new from them?

If not the kicks, I may go for the Rouge instead, but it's a bit bigger than what I need.

There seems to be a chance since Nissan Canada said they don't know if it will or won't. My guess is they might be waiting on the Rogue to show slow sales or its generation to end. Second generation only started in 2013 so we have some years to go.

Welcome to the boards. Best thing to do would probably be to lease the Rogue for now and then wait until, or wait and see if the Kicks comes over.

Agree.

Rogue in its last years will make for a great vehicle since by now they probably worked out a lot of bugs and issues, although even that could be up for debate. Just don't leave us for Mazda

To add, the new Rogue also looks pretty darn sweet with that updated front end. Not too sure about what issues they had though.. was there anything common that was of large concern??

the last one I can think of was one for the 2017 Nissan Rouge last year, it was because the airbag may not deploy in case of a crash. But that should be fixed by now.

Airbag issues have definitely been circulating, especially with the Takata airbags but I'm not too sure if the Rogue was using that as the issue was more of shrapnel being flung at you opposed to not deploying.

But with issues like that being a huge safety concern, I'm sure those are addressed by now as they don't take things like that lightly by far.

If Nissan ever decides to bring the Kicks to NA, they should be able to built them in a short amount of time. Nissan has recently invested $192 million into their Resende Industrial Complex in Brazil to meet Kicks demands. Once that market slows down, maybe they'll ship some NA's way.

Well, the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show is approaching (September 14-24) and it's the world's largest motor show. If Nissan is going to make an announcement, then it should be there.

The Detroit Show is another major event for launching North American products and even global products, wouldn't be surprised if they have us wait till then. Unless Nissan is planning to hold some event away from the major industry shows. Won't be the first time a car maker has done that.
