2019 Nissan Kicks Ratings & Reliability
Nissan has replaced the funky-looking Juke with the Kicks, an all-new entry in the growing segment of subcompact crossovers. The Kicks is more of a budget car designed to appeal to those customers who would normally buy a Nissan Sentra or Versa Note but are attracted to the better versatility and styling of an SUV. Unlike many crossovers, the Kicks doesn't offer all-wheel drive. It comes with a modest 125-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine coupled to a CVT, producing leisurely acceleration but impressive fuel economy at 32 mpg overall. Interior room is generous for the class, and the controls are easy to use. Handling is mundane, and the ride is rather choppy. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking come standard.
