The cabin reflects that the Kicks is unabashedly aimed at a young, style-focused target audience. It receives a simple, uncluttered dashboard with a color touchscreen and round air vents accented by chrome bezels, and its instrument cluster incorporates a high-resolution color screen that can be configured by the driver.

There is no set time frame as to when the Kicks will be released in other global markets. Full details of the Kicks’ pricing, specifications and equipment will be revealed closer to when it goes on sale.
