There are three trim levels available for the 2020 Nissan Kicks: S, SV, and SR. As you approach your new SUV, you’ll notice the sharp edges and aerodynamic lines that flow from the hood back over the LED taillights. The SV and SR have heated outside mirrors. Roof rails are included on the SV and SR trims, for your convenience. The SR also features a rear spoiler, thus, giving it a sporty look.
The Nissan Kicks features a 1.6-liter 16-valve four-cylinder engine under the hood of all three trims. The block uses a direct injector system and features a continuously variable valve timing system on the intake and exhaust valves. It generates 122 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque.
Your new front-wheel-drive SUV has a 10.8-gallon fuel tank to get you 31 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The Kicks features a speed-sensitive power steering system that automatically adjusts your steering based on the vehicle speed. If you are going slower, it gives you a lighter feel but tightens as your speed increases to provide you with the control you need. You can hug the curves of mountains with confidence. The intelligent trace control system reads any situation and automatically applies the brakes to each wheel, if needed, to give you traction and control. The active ride control feature automatically applies the brakes and adjusts the torque to give you a smooth ride on bumpy terrain.
Once you step inside your five passenger SUV, you’ll find three charging ports to keep your devices charged when on the road. You can connect to either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto so you can enjoy your favorite music, podcasts, or audiobooks. You can also send hands-free text messages from the road. Adjust the gauges you see with ease using the digital display information cluster. You can monitor your mileage, check your directions, monitor your fuel level, and keep an eye on your speed. All three trim levels feature a 60/40 split-folding back seat. You can adjust your seating and cargo needs for each adventure. If you leave the seat up, you’ll have 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space. It increases to 32.3 cubic feet with the seat folded down. The S and SV trims include cloth seats. The SR features a sport cloth trim that includes orange accents and stitching.
Your new SUV includes 10 air bags to keep you safe in the event of a crash. Standard automatic emergency braking warns you if you need to hit the brakes quickly. It also engages the brakes to help you avoid a collision. The Kicks also includes a built-in tire pressure monitoring system that alerts you if one or more tires need attention. It comes with an easy-fill alert, so you know when your tires are at their optimum pressure.
