Revamped last year to showcase a more spirited and sporty look, the Nissan Kicks 2022 is back this year with its well-known qualities.
Considering its price and fuel economy, its convenience and safety, and its interior and exterior design, the Nissan Kicks has a lot to offer.
A fuel-efficient vehicle
Under the hood of the crossover is a 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine with 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque. Today, as gas prices are becoming a bigger concern than ever, consumers will appreciate the frugality of the Nissan Kicks. On the highway, it consumes only 6.6 L/100 km and 7.7 L in the city, for a combined consumption of 7.2 L/100 km.
The Nissan Kicks is not only economical at the pump: it is also very affordable, even in its top-of-the-line trims. Here is the Nissan Kicks price for the different versions:
The Nissan Kicks 2022 is an excellent choice for those who want the height of an SUV but the economy of a sedan.
A practical set-up
The advantage of the crossover is that it offers both a spacious cargo area and dimensions that make it practical to drive around town. Reviews of the Nissan Kicks are quick to point out these strengths, which set it apart from its rivals:
“Its small size and light steering make it a very swift vehicle for navigating through busy city traffic and streets.”

Moreover, while there’s no Nissan Kicks AWD, reviewers praise the precision of the ride, with the CVT system working well with the engine.
The Kicks’ compact size doesn’t stop it from offering decent cargo volume: its trunk can hold 716L of cargo, and can also reach up to 915L with the seats down.
A well-equipped interior
The interior of the Nissan Kicks 2022 offers a good level of equipment, including the Zero Gravity seats known for their comfort. Starting with the SV version, you get several additional comfort and convenience features, including:
- Heated front seats
- Heated leather-wrapped steering wheel
- Automatic climate control
- Remote start
- And much more!
For a slightly more upscale design, SR upgrades the seats to black Prima-Tex and contrasts them with orange stitching.
As far as infotainment technology goes, you can have a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, depending on the trim. Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the system also includes Bluetooth wireless audio transmission. Finally, if you want to enjoy superior sound quality, an 8-speaker Bose audio system is available on the SR Privilège model!
A fashionable look
The Nissan Kicks has a sporty, spirited design with 16 or 17 inch wheels and bright, distinctive LED headlights as an option. To stand out from the crowd, it also features several two-tone colour choices with a contrasting black roof.
Several vibrant or more classic colour choices are available with a black roof, including:
- Aspen White
