2019 Nissan Kicks Review
If you’re in the market for a popular subcompact SUV, then you have probably already discovered what makes a subcompact such a great choice between a car and SUV—like the fact that they are more fuel-efficient than larger SUVs and that they provide greater storage capacity and ruggedness than a sedan. You may have also noticed that this popular class has a lot of makes to choose from, including the 2019 Nissan Kicks.
Drivers in Philadelphia, Lansdale, and Doylestown can learn why the Nissan Kicks checks all the boxes for a great subcompact SUV, from its stylish interior to impressive performance to advanced technology, in this Nissan Kicks review.
The interior of a subcompact SUV has to impress, and the Nissan Kicks interior is quite the blend of luxury and durability. One of the most attractive features is the smooth, black leather upholstery you can upgrade to, where the seams match the color of your interior. As you have likely noticed, small SUVs are easier than cars to get in and out of, and the Kicks offers great head clearance and plenty of rear legroom. Some subcompact SUVs scale everything down a little bit too much, but thankfully the Nissan Kicks interior provides more than adequate space and plenty of driver visibility. Additionally, you can opt for a surround-view system that displays what’s around all four sides of the Kicks.
You’ll find a generous amount of cargo space behind the rear seats, with an easy to open rear liftgate. With the rear seats folded, you get an impressive 53.1 cubic feet of cargo room in the Kicks, with an above-average 25.3 cubic feet of cargo area with the rear seats upright. You will likely appreciate how well-thought-out certain utility and small storage aspects are, with cubby spaces in all the doors and under the seats so that passengers have room to store their electronic devices, earbuds, and other valuables.
The Nissan Kicks is fun for a zip around the city with its 122-horsepower engine and smooth continuously variable automatic transmission. With its compact size, you won’t feel underpowered by the Nissan Kicks specs. Where the 2019 model really shines is in its fuel economy, with the Nissan Kicks MPG reaching an EPA-estimated 31 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on highways. If you think about it, that’s performance that pays you back each month. As you maneuver the urban jungle, you’ll notice that the Kicks takes rough pavement very well and handles corners beautifully.
Technology in the 2019 Kicks far outpaces its previous models. The name of the game is Nissan Intelligent Mobility™. For starters, you get a large in-dash screen for infotainment and climate control. In fact, the instrument panel is also digital and can be configured to your liking. Connectivity is not an issue, as you get a USB port, audio input, and a 12-volt power jack, just in case some older tech still requires it. On top of that, Bluetooth® is standard.
On top of connectivity tech, the advanced safety features are superb. You can add a suite of driver-assist features that monitor your surroundings and can react within milliseconds to keep you and your loved ones safe. Some of the most impressive safety features include:
- Automatic Emergency Braking – Prevents rear-end collisions by detecting traffic and engaging the brakes before you would have time to react
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – Helps prevent rear collisions in parking lots or when backing up
- Blind-Spot Warning – Prevent side impacts when changing lanes or merging.
