The Nissan Kicks is about to take its place as the entry-level SUV in the Nissan lineup. Small, cute, spacious, agile, and safe, it’s the perfect vehicle for on-the-go families who need a lot of space. On the other hand, it zips around the city like a small car, and consumes fuel like one as well.
No wonder the 2018 Nissan Kicks reviews are so positive. Here’s a quick look!
Replacing the Juke at the small end of Nissan’s SUV lineup, the Kicks is a cheeky entry into the subcompact-crossover class. The sole engine is a 125-hp inline-four mated with a CVT and front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is not offered. The Kicks loses the turbocharged Juke’s fun factor, but it makes up for that with more interior space, plenty of features, and a smooth ride. Forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking are standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional – Car & Driver
The interior is also quite nice. I sat in both SV and SR trims and was impressed with the interior materials and design. The SV's interesting quilted cloth upholstery was particularly noteworthy. The ubiquitous stitched leatherette on the dash (SR) and textured metal-look trim (SV) also looked good, as did the touchscreen slightly raising out from it. The center console sides are thoughtfully padded and covered in leatherette. The part-digital gauge cluster should also stand out in this modest segment.
As should its cargo capacity, which was a major demerit for the Juke. The cargo area in the Kicks is a deep well that should come in handy on those weekend road trips for the young urbanite millenials the car is aimed at.
So, although the weak engine and lack of all-wheel drive disappoints, I don't think the Kicks is that bad – Autoblog
That's why the Kicks felt like such a breath of fresh air to me. It has the right price, the right amount of cabin and cargo room, and the right amount of styling customization to appeal to a wide range of buyers – Cars.com
