2019 Nissan Kicks

With the continuing saga of Carlos’ Fakery playing in the background, Nissan has announced pricing for both the Kicks and Rogue Sport machines. Nissan’s littlest crossovers continue to slice their showroom segments into ever-shrinking slivers, with just about all the air between their offerings having long vanished.

As you’d expect, there’s a marginal price hike for 2019 but the Kicks remains squarely in the sub-$20,000 category. The Qashqai Rogue Sport will command a few more dollar bills than last year as well.

Appearing in America earlier this year, the Kicks has been a hit for Nissan, serving to add 13,576 units to the company’s bottom line through to the end of October. The suits in Tennessee don’t break out sales stats for the Rogue Sport, demonstrating a convenient side effect of sharing part of its name with its bigger brother.

The Rogue/Rogue Sport duo far outsells anything else in Nissan’s fleet, chalking up 337,727 sales year-to-date. This represents well over half of the company’s truck side of the ledger and more than 150,000 units greater than its next bestselling nameplate so far in 2018, the Sentra.

2019 Nissan Kicks

For the 2019 model year, Kicks has a starting price of $18,540 for the base S trim, a $570 walk from last year’s rig. For that sum, buyers will find Nissan’s 7-inch infotainment system, automatic emergency braking, and sixteen-inch wheels. Stepping up through the range, one will find SV and SR trims which simply ladle on more options but do nothing in terms of changing the powertrain.

The Kicks is a front-drive only affair, a decision which surely keeps its base price at bay but may very well cost it a few sales in the Snow Belt. Kia is set to show a new Soul crossover later this month in LA and, given the teaser images we’ve seen, it’ll probably be available with power going to all four corners. You can bet Nissan will be watching closely to see how the market responds.

2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

Slightly further along the food chain is the Rogue Sport, starting at $22,240 for a 2019 in base S trim. The current machine, strangely touted as a 2018.5 model, is listed at $22,110. New gear for 2019 includes a Rear Door Alert System (a feature which your author always disables because it makes him quite melancholy) on all Rogue Sports plus the availability of ProPilot Assist on snazzy trims. Unlike the Kicks, buyers can spec the Rogue Sport in all-wheel drive for a reasonable $1350.

Both the 2019 Kicks and 2019 Rogue Sport are on sale now.
