But it still starts at less than $20,000.
Nissan introduced the all-new version of the quirky Juke crossover a few months ago, but we're disappointed that it isn't coming to America. The last model was discontinued in the US model in 2018 and replaced with the more affordable Nissan Kicks. For the 2020 model year, the Kicks has been given a small price increase, but it's still affordable with a starting price of less than $20,000.
While the 2019 model started at $18,640, the base model 2020 Nissan Kicks S starts at $18,870, which is an increase of $230. Moving up the range, the Kicks SV starts at $20,500 and the range-topping Kicks SR will set you back $21,120. All prices exclude the $1,095 destination and handling fee.
For the 2020 model year, the Nissan Kicks now includes Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology as standard to justify the price increase, which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, radar-based blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert and high beam assist. A rear door alert is also now offered as standard on Kicks SV and SR trims.
Every 2020 Kicks is powered by a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent exclusively to the front wheels in all trim levels through a continuously variable transmission.
Fuel economy for the 2020 Nissan Kicks is rated at 31 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined. Seven exterior colors are available along with five two-tone combinations. Inside, the interior provides ample passenger space throughout the cabin. Nissan also claims the 2020 Kicks offers best-in-class front seat legroom.
Available technology includes an Intelligent Around View Monitor and a seven-inch touchscreen is offered as standard for the infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
