The Kicks is now Nissan’s fastest selling model.
Since it replaced the retired Juke last spring, the funky Nissan Kicks is now the brand’s fastest-selling model thanks to its affordable asking price, comprehensive customization options, and impressive standard features. Pricing for the 2019 Nissan Kicks has been announced, and it’s still a surprisingly affordable compact crossover. Available now across US dealerships, the entry-level Kicks S starts at $18,540, which is $550 more expensive than the outgoing model. As with the 2018 model, buyers can choose between three well-equipped front-wheel drive trim levels including S, SV, and SR.
Each model comes equipped with a standard 1.6-liter gasoline unit that delivers 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Nissan claims the engine will deliver a combined 33 mpg. Available exterior features include standard Intelligent Auto Headlights and available LED low beam headlights with LED signature accents.
The 2019 Kicks is offered in a range of seven exterior colors, plus five two-tone combinations. Three of the two-tone color schemes utilize a black roof and contrasting body colors (white, orange or red), along with an orange roof with a grey body and white roof with a blue body.
Inside, the 2019 Nissan Kicks features what the automaker calls a modern and simple “Gliding Wing” instrument panel that’s dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch color display. Like most modern crossovers, the infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
Upgrading to the SR Premium Package adds a class-exclusive Bose Personal Plus sound system featuring a pair of 2.5-inch Bose UltraNearfield neodymium speakers located inside the driver’s seat headrest. Other onboard tech includes an available Intelligent Around View Monitor, while Emergency Braking is standard on all grade levels, along with seven airbags and a RearView Monitor. Moving up the range, the SV and range-topping SR specs, priced from $20,250 and $20,870 respectively, add Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
