What to Expect from the New 2023 Nissan Kicks

2023 Nissan Kicks

The new 2023 Nissan Kicks is a competent sub-compact SUV that has a lot to offer in terms of features, efficiency, and practicality.

A long list of equipment

The 2023 Nissan Kicks is available with many features that you can’t get for the same price in competing vehicles. For example, the entry-level Kicks S comes standard with auto high beams, reverse collision warning with autonomous braking, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push-button start, and a 7-inch touchscreen. Higher trim levels also add a Bose premium sound system with headrest-mounted speakers, a 7-inch screen in the instrument cluster, intelligent cruise control, a 360-degree camera system, heated front seats, automatic climate control, remote start, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a heated steering wheel and more.

A fuel-efficient powertrain

The 2023 Nissan Kicks is powered by an efficient 1,6L four-cylinder engine that generates 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the latest generation of the Xtronic CVT transmission, this engine gives the Kicks a fuel consumption as low as 6,6 L/100 km on the highway and 7,7 L /100 km in the city, making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the sub-compact SUV segment. This means that the Kicks is not only affordable to buy, it is also affordable to own, saving its driver money at the pump.

A high level of practicality

The 2023 Nissan Kicks is a very practical vehicle despite its diminutive exterior dimensions. This is due to an efficient use of space that gives the Kicks up to 716 litres of cargo space behind the rear seat and 915 litres behind the front seat. Passengers also benefit from the Kicks’ generous cabin since it offers the most amount of front headroom and legroom in its category. Practicality is also enhanced by the small exterior dimensions of the Kicks since they make it easier to park and more enjoyable to drive in the city.
