    Nissan Kicks

    Just got an email from the dealership advertising the new Nissan Kicks.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Kicks

    Replacing the Juke, our one and only HR16DE remains in the vehicle, no information yet on if the turbo engines from the Juke lineup will make its way in there. I don't know what they are doing to the HR engine to get 125 horses out of it, especially since Jalopniks piece on it isn't very nice, and directly calls out the natural aspiration of the engine (the engine code should give it away as naturally aspirated anyway). If whatever they did is simple, maybe we could copy it in our HR engines.

    I for one will miss the quirky look of the Juke. At least the Kicks comes with a 5pd MT so you can avoid the CVT if you wish.

    Thoughts?

    I was never a fan of the front end of the Juke. I think the Kicks looks better. The name "Kicks" the name, well, I am not sure what to think about it. If they kept the name and just changed the front end, I'd like it.

    I for one am very sad. I LOVED the quirky look of the juke and am very sad to see it go. It was going to be my next car. Not a fan of the kicks as it looks like the new toyota crossover.

    I wonder if the Infiniti version is here to stay?

    We like our 2015 Juke and will likely keep it long term. It's quirky looks with 190 h.p. and a 6 speed manual trans makes it fun to beat up non quirky looking vehicles at traffic lights.
