The Kicks replaced the Nissan Juke in 2018. The Kicks is stylish and offers some of the best features and tech for the money in the extra-small SUV class. It’s fuel-efficient, easy to park, and even kind of fun to drive on a curvy road. But it falls short of its competition when it comes to comfort and measurable performance.
The Nissan Kicks is a subcompact crossover SUV that was introduced in 2016. It is the smallest SUV in Nissan’s lineup and is known for its fuel efficiency, stylish design, and affordable price tag. The Kicks is powered by a 1.6L four-cylinder engine that produces 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Kicks gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. It can tow up to 1,100 pounds.
The Kicks has a spacious interior for its size and can seat up to five passengers. It has a cargo capacity of 26.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 62.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The Kicks comes standard with a variety of features, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system. Available features include a Bose sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and heated front seats. The Nissan Kicks starts at $19,730.
