With its vibrant personality and attractive price, the Kicks is a subcompact-crossover SUV that deserves attention. While we wish it were available with AWD, this Nissan is a standout value, even when compared against rivals such as the Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona and Chevrolet Trax.
New Features and Revisions
Because the Nissan Kicks was an all-new vehicle in 2018, little has changed with the 2019 model. It’s still powered by an efficient 1.6-liter engine with 122 horsepower, but the all-wheel-drive option that we had hoped for in the 2019 model year has failed to materialize. Nevertheless, we appreciate the fun styling of this affordable Nissan crossover SUV.
