Had a great experience with Jag and Callan. Both were very helpful, knowledgeable, and not pushy at all. I felt Jag knew the car very well and was able to get all my questions answered clearly and honestly. Callan was very helpful and thorough with the financing portion. Definitely recommend and would go back!

A surprisingly easy buying experience. Our knowledgeable salesman Allen was very patient with my wife and I. The nice young lady in finance was engaging but not pushy. Insurance was pleasant and a breeze. Yes, I recommend Key West Ford.

It’s an unassuming spec. You stare at the 2018 Kicks, knowing that beneath its hood rests a 1.6L four-cylinder engine. This seems a middling option for the hot hatch market; and you wonder how it could possibly replace the responsive (and now discontinued) Juke. This isn’t the upgrade you were promised.

We disagree - and so does CNET.

As the venerable news site explains, the 2018 Kicks will serve as the successor to the Juke. It will feature a four-cylinder engine, which (at first glance) seems less than thrilling. Performance ratios linger at 125 HP and 115 lb.-ft of torque, and Sumner drivers are already voicing their displeasure.

Give us a moment of silence and we’ll sway your opinion.



Though the Nissan Kicks features a smaller engine than its predecessor, it delivers superior performance - pairing natural-aspiration technology (which ensures a steady power-band, regulating both air intake and fuel distribution to maintain optimal levels) with a light design. The hatch boasts a slim frame of 2,369 pounds. Its distinct blend of alloy and carbon materials greatly lessens overall weight demands (the Juke’s entry-level model yielded 2,913 pounds); and this allows it to sail down every street. Its four-cylinder has been engineered for maneuverability, achieving a 0 to 60 rev of approximately 7.9 seconds.

The new Kicks - which is anchored by a seamless continuously variable transmission and a robust front-wheel-drive - promises dynamic handling on the highway; and it proves that spec sheets can indeed be deceiving.
