2020 Nissan Kicks Colors, Changes, Release date

Nissan Kicks arrived in the USA to replace the Juke and take
the position as the smallest crossover in the lineup. Recently,
the company unveiled the new Rogue
Sport, vehicle slotted between 2020 Nissan Kicks and Rogue.
Be sure that the subcompact vehicle will take some items from
its new sibling. Well, Kicks is still fresh and there is no
need to update it yet. The first season went well and chiefs
are happy with the performance of the new model. However, it is
not going to stop them from improving the Kicks.

The main advantage of the 2020 Nissan Kicks is its fuel
economy. This is a budget-saving crossover that will return a
class-leading mileage. Of course, it means less power. Still,
the CVT gearbox is smooth and improves mpg numbers. The small
crossover is easy to maneuver in tight city streets. Still, the
Kicks offers enough space inside (do not expect too much).
Exterior styling is eye-catching, while the company paid a lot
of attention to infotainment and safety. Top safety pick by
IIHS is the proof. Unfortunately, the lack of power and torque
is not the only downside. The Kicks is the FWD crossover and
there is no optional all-wheel drive. Surprisingly, Nissan is
not offering navigation through upper trims or additional
packages.

Safety Features

As said, the crossover received the highest grades for its
safety. There will be surprised if the 2020 Nissan Kicks do
anything to spoil the top pick. Although small, the vehicle is
very safe. To boost it, even more, Nissan is adding forward
collision alert and the vehicle brakes automatically in
emergency situations. Models with this feature are less
involved in crashes than these that don’t use emergency
braking. Blind-spot warning is optional. It will help you
detect vehicles that are not possible to see in mirrors. For
the backup drive, there is a special camera, while parking is
easier thanks to the camera with a 360-degree view. Whatsoever,
it is available only for SR trim level.

AWD is Still Possible for 2020 Nissan Kicks

Under the hood of the 2020 Nissan Kicks is a 1.6-liter
four-cylinder engine. It makes 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of
torque. The X-Tronic CVT is smooth and boosts the power
economy. For the new subcompact crossover, the gas mileage is
going up to 36 mpg on the highway. In the city, the vehicle
consumes more fuel, returning 31 mpg. Front-wheel drive is the
exclusive mode. However, recently we heard some hints about the
all-wheel drive. But, the company is not confirming it yet. We
have to wait for the release date. Don’t be surprised if Nissan
decides to launch the new edition of the drive system.

Outside the US, the 2020 Nissan Kicks will also be available in
the Chinese market. There, the crossover is using a 1.5-liter
petrol engine. It produces less power (100 hp and 100 lb-ft of
torque / 135 Nm), but the fuel economy is even better. Both
gasoline drivetrains are using a five-speed manual gearbox as
the power router.

Hybrid

Carmakers are not so keen on making the hybrid versions of the
subcompact crossovers. For example, Nissan is a leader in the
electric segment, where its LEAF is the best-selling electric
car ever. So, it is more likely to see the Kicks as the EV,
rather than hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle. Nissan Rogue is
getting a huge boost from electric battery, especially for the
city ride. So, the advantages would be there, but the Rogue
achieves much higher sale numbers than Kicks.

2020 Nissan Kicks Price

The base 2020 Nissan Kicks is one of the cheapest crossovers
you can find in dealerships. Well, the competition is growing.
But even the Korean manufacturers, Hyundai and Kia, are not
offering better prices for their Kona and Soul. The MSRP of
the new Kicks will remain around $19,000. With destination fee,
it jumps closer to $20k. An upper SV mid-range trim adds $2,000
to the base price for 17-inch wheels and the larger touchscreen
display at the center of the dashboard. Android Auto and Apple
CarPlay are standard for this version. Top of the class model
is SR. Its price is $22,000 with destination fee, and it adds
360-degree camera and roof spoilers at the back. Unique seats
are getting special stitches. You will recognize the Kicks SR
thanks to the fresh LED headlights.

Competition

Major lacks of the 2020 Nissan Kicks will make buyers look for
other vehicles in the same segment. Japanese carmakers, Toyota
and Honda, are offering C-HR and HR-V with
navigation and AWD as additional options. Also, the competition
is coming from US carmakers. Jeep
Renegade, Ford
EcoSport, and Chevy Trax are
the biggest rivals. Also, competition comes from South Korea.
Hyundai Kona and Kia Soul are
already available with electric drivetrains. This could speed
up the development by Nissan which is not going to give up so
easily from electrification.
