Performance to conquer the city

Intelligent Engine Brake

Get smoother deceleration when cornering or coming to a stop. Intelligent Engine Brake uses the Xtronic CVT® to apply engine braking, for more level and confident stopping. And helping to keep your bag from flying off the passenger seat.

Intelligent Trace Control

Hug the curves with handling that feels effortless. Intelligent Trace Control reads the situation and, if needed, can brake each wheel individually to help you steer smoothly through the corners.

Exactly how you like it

60/40 Rear Folding Seats

Kicks’ 60/40 2nd-row split-folding seats and a maximum length of 57″ offer flexible seating configurations to fit your lifestyle.

A hatch that’s up to the task

With 25.3 cu. ft. of cargo volume behind the rear seats, Kicks has more than enough room to pack it all in.

Upgrade your screen time

USB & USB-C ports

Your smart devices are essential. Keep them charged and connected with standard USB and an available USB Type-C port, easily accessible by driver and front-seat passenger. There’s also a standard rear-seat USB port for passengers in the back to use.

Wi-Fi hotspot

Turn your Kicks into a mobile hotspot for you and your passengers with the available Nissan Wi-Fi Hotspot. You can pair up to seven devices, including tablets and laptops.

Peace of mind comes standard

Rear Automatic Braking

Save your bumper. Kicks with class-exclusive standard Rear Automatic Braking watches out directly behind you for stationary items you might not see. If it detects something and you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of an impact.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Fear no parking lot, or driveway. When you’re backing out of your space, Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Kicks and can warn you about cars it detects creeping up on you from either side.

What Does the New Nissan Kicks Look Like?

For those familiar with previous iterations of the Nissan Kicks, the new 2021 version will show a striking difference! Its front grille design is deeper and more pronounced, with dramatic angles forming the central trapezoidal shape, with a Nissan logo that seems to float in the middle. That floating theme is repeated on the sides of the vehicle, thanks to Nissan’s signature blacked-out frames, creating the appearance of a roof that floats atop the base of the car. This model year also includes several new color options, and even a few two-tone colorways for an even bolder appearance. Roof rails come standard on all models, with the upper two trims also enjoying standard LED lighting, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the Kicks seats up to five with specially designed “Zero-Gravity” seats for added comfort. Notably, folding the rear seats offers over 53 cubic feet of cargo space!

What Powers the 2021 Nissan Kicks?

The Nissan Kicks provides the same engine for all three of its trim levels, which is the 1.6-liter inline-4, rated at 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) which constantly adjusts the gear to adapt to the current speed and engine output. The Kicks comes standard with front-wheel drive, and features a tight turning radius that adds to its natural agility. This is only enhanced by its sporty suspension that handles well around tight corners. The combination of the Kicks’ small stature and the energy-saving CVT makes for excellent fuel economy. The Kicks has been EPA-rated at an outstanding 36 miles per gallon on the highway.

What are the Nissan Kicks’ Tech and Safety Features?

The Nissan Kicks is offering a wealth of impressive tech and safety features for the 2021 lineup! Starting from the base-level S trim, the Kicks includes a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Moving up to the SV trim will bump the screen size up to 8 inches, and add satellite radio, and adaptive cruise control. This comes in addition to the extensive standard safety package, the Nissan Safety Shield 360. This package is standard on all models and features automatic reverse braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and forward collision mitigation. The top-tier SR trim also adds a 360-degree surround-view camera which offers a top-down look at your vehicle’s surroundings.
