Kicks is a new-style compact crossover, available in S, SV and SL options to appeal to the widest range of people looking to experience an economical, practical and thoroughly modern and attractive vehicle.

The 2020 Nissan Kicks is perfect for people who may wish to upgrade from a small family saloon to a compact crossover. And while the Nissan Kicks has surprisingly small external dimensions, it is in fact eminently capacious and practical, with a big back seat and plenty of space to store cargo. Kicks shines as a bright, happy-looking car and, perhaps even better than a smile, boasts a competitive price that most people can afford.

Trendy lines emphasise the modernity of the new Kicks; it’s cheeky yet charming and so wants to please; even the basic models have lots of desirable features, such as the handsome 17-inch wheels, digital gauge cluster, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert which will be most interesting to buyers.

Nissan say the Kicks is designed to thrive on the bustling streets of the city. With its unique styling, dynamic handling, elevated stance and tight turning radius, you’ll love its perky in-town power, smooth automatic gear shifting transmission, and its comfortable ride for driver and passengers.

Feel like you’re living in the forefront of technology; the Kicks’ seven-inch colour display not only looks good, but also helps you keep focused on what’s most important. From turn-by-turn directions to safety alerts, this screen lays it right before your eyes, helping to minimise the time you look away. For example, the four cameras of the Intelligent Around View Monitor give you a virtual 360° bird’s-eye view of your car, plus close-up views of the front, rear and curbside.

It goes without saying that you can plug in your smartphone, iPod, USB flash drive or other compatible device into the convenient USB input and take your whole music collection on the road.

The extra vision and control while driving the Kicks give the driver a sense of confidence, knowing that the design, the technology and the strong Zone Body construction are all there to help you and your family get the most out of life.

Kicks can be said to be one of many small, and large, contributions Nissan is making in its aim to make our roads a place of greater safety.

EXTERIOR FEATURES The striking design starts with the dramatic styling of the V-motion front grille and distinctive boomerang-shaped LED signature headlights. It then continues with the sleek floating roof design and powerful, elevated stance, like a tiger waiting to pounce. This is a vehicle that won’t go unnoticed.

INTERIOR FEATURES The distinctive gliding wing design of the dash gives the interior a clean, modern look; the 7-inch full colour display shows everything from navigation to your playlists to your fuel economy history; 60:40 split rear seats; liftgate opens high enough for you to stand under; the spacious interior maximises room with its flat floor design and has touches of quality seen in the high degree of craftsmanship; high driving position lets you take in the landscape, and traffic situations, from an elevated perspective, giving the driving a feeling of having more control, more confidence
