All versions feature a 122 hp (124 ps/91 kW) and 114 lb-ft (155 Nm) of torque 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a CVT and FWD, returning 33 mpg (7.1 l/100 km) combined, 31 mpg (7.6 l/100 km) in the city, and 36 mpg (6.5 l/100 km) on the highway.
It remains to be seen what engine its successor packs, though we can note that it will feature updated styling all over, including a new V-motion grille with horizontal slats, repositioned LED headlamps that sit further up, new taillights, a new tailgate, and a cleaner-looking rear bumper. We should also note that the profile and greenhouse are very similar to those of the current Kicks.
More details about it will be automatically disclosed once the thick and trippy camouflage starts coming off. And as much as some would want it to grow out of its quirky suit and become a bit more elegant, that does not appear to be on the menu. But it is at Digimods Design, as the rendering artist has dropped a few digital illustrations that imagine a better-looking next-gen Nissan Kicks.
Overall, the virtual model looks more mature, and we think this design suits it like a glove, especially with the LED head- and taillights, aggressively shaped bumpers at both ends, a new interpretation of the V-motion grille, and some plastic cladding to further highlight its crossover-y nature. The model features a blue paint finish and several black accents, with others sporting a gray look.
As we already told you, we wouldn't mind if the 2025 Nissan Kicks ended up looking similar to these CGIs, and we think you wouldn't either, right? But that's not going to happen, as the Japanese car manufacturer has decided to take a safer route when it comes to its design.
