If you’re looking for a city vehicle, it’s hard to beat subcompact crossovers. With their petite dimensions, these vehicles are easily maneuverable on crowded urban streets. Many also provide great utility, and this makes them versatile companions. Offering superb fuel economy and excellent cargo capacity, the Nissan Kicks is one of the most appealing choices in this growing segment.
2018 to Present: Nissan Kicks
The Kicks made its debut in 2018, and it replaces the discontinued Juke as the smallest crossover in Nissan’s lineup. While this five-passenger, front-wheel-drive SUV lacks the Juke’s sporty disposition, it surpasses that model when it comes to comfort and utility. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for a small crossover SUV with an affordable base price.
When it comes to its exterior design, the Kicks manages to look fresh and free-spirited without being too polarizing. Its wide headlights and open-mouthed grille lend a cheerful appearance to its front fascia. In profile, an ascending beltline and muscular fenders add athleticism.
Kicks buyers can choose from a vibrant range of colors, and the vehicle is available with a contrasting roof. This bright palette further serves to give the crossover a look that’s youthful and visually appealing.
While the Kicks’ cabin is more sedate than its exterior, the aesthetic is still bright and pleasant. And though the Kicks has a small footprint, its cabin is reasonably spacious. The front row is comfortable, and passengers in the rear seat enjoy good legroom. Best of all, the Kicks is one of the top choices in its segment when it comes to cargo space.
Nissan’s Kicks offers handling that’s comfortable enough to keep most shoppers happy. It was introduced with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 125 horsepower, and that engine is teamed with a continuously variable transmission. Perhaps the most notable aspect of this crossover’s performance concerns fuel economy. It offers excellent mileage, and this makes it a great choice for shoppers who want to save money at the gas pump.
Nissan has equipped the Kicks with a healthy assortment of standard features. It was introduced with standard amenities like keyless entry and ignition, USB ports, power windows and door locks, Bluetooth connectivity and a 7-inch touchscreen. Common options include features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, satellite radio, automatic climate control and a Bose audio system.
This small crossover also offers a modern range of driver-assist amenities. All models come with a rearview camera and collision warning with automatic emergency braking. A few of the available driver-assist features include a blind-spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Kicks is typically cross-shopped against small crossovers like the Hyundai Kona, Toyota C-HR and Honda HR-V. Its accessible starting price and overall competence make this Nissan an appealing proposition.
