Presented for the first time in 2017, the Nissan Kicks made a huge impression with its versatility, offering cutting-edge technology for a competitive price.
Nissan redesigned the Kicks for 2020 with the aim of attracting even more young buyers.
The new compact crossover brought new useful features to the table, such as easy smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While the S (base) trim level came with a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, the upper trim levels, the SV and the SR featured a bigger 8.0-inch color touchscreen.
Practicality was enhanced with no less than 3 USB ports available and a USB Type-C for the upper trim levels.
The cabin was fitted with a brand new center console, new seating and also different trims.
The exterior was restyled and the Kicks featured the Nissan’s “Double V-Motion” grille. While the base model came with steel wheels, the other trim levels included redesigned wheels.
Heavily customisable, the Kicks was available with an extensive list of available exterior paint colors, be it one color or the two-tone exterior available for the top-of-the-range trim level.
In total, the Kicks was available with over 100 million color combinations to match each customer’s personal style.
A strong competitor in the class, the Kicks offered great interior space, for both the front and the rear passengers.
The latest safety technologies were available with the redesigned crossover, starting with traction control, anti-lock braking system, electric power steering and rear disc brakes for the SV and the SR, to an intelligent cruise control system, active engine brake, intelligent trace control and intelligent ride control.
Even the standard version of the Kick was well equipped, however, the SV included a long list of features for great value.
