2020 Nissan Kicks Overview

The Nissan Kicks is the smallest crossover in the brand’s growing lineup, competing with the Hyundai Venue and Kia Soul. It was introduced for 2018 and gets new safety updates for 2020.

Despite the Kicks’ diminutive size, it has plenty of personality. It wears the same aggressive styling as Nissan’s other crossovers and offers five two-tone color schemes.

Nissan’s only engine offering is a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine with 122 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive (FWD) are also standard. All-wheel drive (AWD) is not on the menu. Fortunately, fuel economy is commendable at 31 mpg city, 36 highway, and 33 combined.

The Kicks comes in S, SV, and SR trims. The S comes standard with Bluetooth, three USB ports, keyless entry, push-button start, a tire-fill alert system, and automatic headlights.

The SV gets 17-inch alloy wheels, body-colored heated outside mirrors, roof rails, automatic temperature control, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster LCD, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless access, remote engine start, and satellite radio.

The SR trim rounds things out with LED low-beam headlights, LED headlight accents, fog lights, black heated outside mirrors with turn signals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather shift knob, special SR seat fabric, and a rear roof spoiler. You can then add the SR Premium Package, bundling Bose Audio, an amplifier, eight speakers, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, and an alarm.

For 2020, Nissan makes its Safety Shield 360 technology standard equipment for the Kicks. That gets you a reversing camera, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high-beams. Additionally, SV and SR trims come with a rear-door alert. The Kicks was awarded a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in 2019.
