2020 Nissan Kicks exterior includes sharper lines and edges
The exterior of the upcoming 2020 Nissan Kicks looks modern and unique. This compact crossover also offers a Nissan’s traditional styling which includes sharper lines and edges. Additionally, the structure seems to be more angular than before. The front end’s highlight is for sure a famous V-Motion grille and boomerang-shaped headlights.
To the sides, 16-inch wheels are standard and we like blacked-out pillars. C-pillars are wider now and 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels are optional. The rear part will remain the same, which means the boomerang-shaped taillights will carry over.
2020 Nissan Kicks interior is sporty
The interior looks stylish and the comfort is great. The 2020 Nissan Kicks is a two-row crossover that can accommodate five persons and the room is ample for such a compact model. A flat-bottom steering wheel is really sporty and we like the dashboard design. Interior also sports plenty of upscale materials and soft-touch surfaces. Of course, if you are looking for a real luxury, upper trims are offering leather seats as standard.
Tech-wise, Kick offers stuff such as Bluetooth, navigation, USB ports, and latest infotainment system. That system adds a 7.0-inch color display that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Those phone connectivity system will be optional as well.
Furthermore, safety rating is good as Kicks now includes auto emergency braking and forward collision warning as standard. Unfortunately, most of the safety aids are optional on the base model and standard on higher trim levels.

The all-new 2020 Nissan Kicks continues to offer a single engine option. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder drivetrain is standard and it delivers 125 horses and 115 lb-ft of torque. This unit comes with a CVT automatic transmission and great fuel economy. For sure, Kicks will be an extremely popular choice among those customers who are looking for better fuel economy.
