The Nissan Kicks is a no-frills, no-nonsense budget SUV that delivers underwhelming performance and lacks personality, but it does what it says on the box. For only $18,870, you get a subcompact crossover SUV with decent interior space, a good-sized cargo area, and enough power to get you from A to B while not using a lot of gas. Standard features on the Kicks S include a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine producing 122 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque, halogen headlamps, and manual air conditioning. Infotainment is taken care of via a seven-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth streaming, Siri Eyes Free, and a six-speaker sound system. Safety features include automatic forward braking with pedestrian control and rear cross-traffic assistance.
