Set to appear in Canadian dealerships this spring, pricing for the new 2018 Kicks has been released and Nissan is not pulling any punches.

Aggressively priced, the Japanese automaker’s new compact utility vehicle has a base price of just $19,793, including shipping. That’s low enough to undercut most of its segment rivals including the Kia Soul, Ford EcoSport, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR. All models listed have a starting price of $19,995 before shipping is added, reports Automotive News Canada.

With such an affordable price, one would think the Nissan Kicks is lacking in standard features but that’s not the case.

Be it the entry level S trim, volume-leader SV, or sport-themed SR variant, each one comes standard with Nissan’s Intelligent Emergency Braking system, seven airbags, remote keyless entry with push button start, 7-inch infotainment display, Siri Eyes Free, and a rearview monitor.

If those features aren’t enough, customers can opt for the $22,693 SV trim or the SR at $24,593, both with freight included.

There’s only one powertrain offered and that’s a 1.6-litre DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine delivering 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. Combined with front-wheel-drive and a CVT transmission, the Kicks should return 6.6 litre/100km combined.

The price difference between all those models are so small they're negligible and you can probably barter down to what the other cars cost. But the Nissan Kicks seem to be better equipped especially with the standard Emergency Braking system.

Glad to see the Kicks is priced how it is because this alone is a big incentive for me to get it over the more expensive CH-R, Toyota asks for too much sometimes.

Fuel economy is pretty good too for the price, at 33 mpg combined compared to its predecessor's 29 mpg. Just a shame it doesn't optional all-wheel-drive system or a manual transmission. With how cheap the Kicks is, I'd be willing to splurge a bit for a different drive system.

Regardless of the trim that you go with, there's incredible value to be found here. Rumor has it that even Toyota is considering a cheaper base trim for the new C-HR. My only gripe is that there's no difference in powertrain from the base model to the top end. They should have at least considered a turbo option.
