It also promises plenty of storage space for any groceries or luggage you may want to bring along.

What’s New in the 2019 Nissan Kicks?
The slim-sized Kicks has some big surprises in store, from its generous storage space to its responsible fuel efficiency.
While drivers usually don’t expect much cabin space from a subcompact, the Kick’s interior can hold five comfortably. The interior design is contemporary and stylish, with smooth cloth upholstery. You may also upgrade the cabin with optional amenities like leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated front seats. Families will discover that the two full sets of LATCH car seat connections are both easy to find and fasten, and sleepy passengers can rest undisturbed by road noise. The Kicks also presents a respectable amount of cargo space, with 25.3 cubic feet open behind the back row. If you fold the rear seats, that area expands to 53.1 cubic feet.
The Kicks offers a variety of fun infotainment features, and they’re all accessible through a user-friendly touchscreen. Available tech options include Siri Eyes Free, satellite radio, Bose sound, smartphone connectivity, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and more.
The Kicks is powered by a 122-horsepower 1.6-liter 4-cylinder mated to a continuously variable transmission. The Kicks maintains outstanding gas mileage, even for a segment that’s synonymous with efficiency. The subcompact also delivers a steady ride even over rougher roads, and tight parking situations are no problem for its small frame and sharp maneuverability.
Available safety features include forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and more. The Kicks also performed well in all its safety tests.
History of the Nissan Kicks
In 2016, Nissan premiered the Kicks for the summer Olympics in Brazil. The crossover was designed with insight from Nissan’s studio in San Diego, and promised easily adaptability when it was time to enter the North American market. Automotive reporters were delighted by the spritely Kick’s first impressions at the Olympics, and forecast that it wouldn’t be long before the subcompact arrived in the U.S.
The first Kicks model in the U.S. released in 2018, intended to replace the Juke as Nissan’s next eye-catching subcompact. The sporty little Juke was inspired on a Nissan concept vehicle, and paired futuristic styling with athletic performance. The Kicks understated some of the Juke’s bolder styling choices while providing the efficiency and convenience that drivers have come to associate with Nissan.
