There are plenty of reasons to look into the new 2021 Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks is one of the most popular crossovers on the road today, and the new 2021 model is a definite upgrade from all past models. We didn’t believe this vehicle could get much better than it already was, but the folks at Nissan have done it again.
If you’re looking for an affordable family vehicle that is fuel-efficient, compact, and still tech-savvy and comfortable, then the 2021 Kicks is for you. For years this crossover has been wowing us with all the best options and features, and all at budget-friendly prices. You really can’t go wrong with the Nissan Kicks.
So what does the new 2021 model have that is so impressive? How did Nissan take a fantastic vehicle and make it even better? The answer, my friend, will have you running to your local Nissan dealer too. With bold new styling choices, connected tech, excellent safety, and bold performance, the 2021 Nissan Kicks has something to offer every driver.
When it comes to new vehicle technologies, nothing is more important than safety. After all, the cushiest, shiniest, most media-friendly vehicle in the world will do you no good if you get into an accident coming home from work. When you are entrusting the lives of your loved ones to an interstate filled with vehicles going 55+ MPH, you want a vehicle that has all the very best safety features available: a vehicle that will ensure everybody gets home safely.
The 2021 Nissan Kicks comes with Safety Shield 360, which includes a plethora of safety features that are designed to keep your loved ones safe. While each feature has its own individual job, they come together to form a complete safety package. First, we’ve got the Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Essentially, your Kicks has a few extra sensing capabilities that keep an eye out for whatever may be in front of you, whether that’s a suddenly slowing vehicle or a sneaky pedestrian. When an object or a person is detected, your Kicks will automatically apply pressure to the brakes so that you don’t hit anything.
Next up, we have the Rear Automatic Braking feature. This feature can sense what is behind you when you are backing up. If your vehicle detects something behind you that shouldn’t be there or that you don’t want to hit, it will engage the brakes automatically so that you don’t run anything over or damage your rear bumper. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety feature works in conjunction with the Rear Automatic Braking feature to detect any vehicle crossing behind you, such as you would experience when backing out of a driveway or a parking spot. You will get an alert when a car is approaching, so you have time to brake before you cause a collision.
Lane Departure Warning works while you are driving down the interstate. If you begin to drive out of your lane without using a turn signal, your Kicks will alert you so you can easily keep your vehicle in your lane where you belong. This feature also works in conjunction with the Blind Spot Warning system to warn you if there is a vehicle in the lane you intend to move into, thus preventing even more accidents. And finally, the High Beam Assist feature automatically brightens and dims your headlights according to darkness levels as well as approaching vehicles, so you don’t unintentionally blind anybody else. Really, we can’t imagine why anybody would want to find themselves behind a vehicle that does not come equipped with these safety features.
In addition to the amazing standard safety features, the Kicks also has some exciting available driver assistance features. For example, you have the Intelligent Cruise Control that uses radar to detect the flow of traffic and automatically adjusts your speed to maintain a set following distance. The Forward Collision Warning watches up to one car ahead of you, and if it detects that vehicle is suddenly decelerating, it will let you know to slow down. The Intelligent Around View Monitor helps make parking easier with a 360-degree bird's eye view of your vehicle. Finally, the Intelligent Driver Alertness will let you know to take a break if it senses drowsiness in your steering patterns.
As more and more technological advances become available to us in this modern world, people are demanding that these technologies be included in their everyday vehicles. The 2021 Nissan Kicks complies and provides us with some pretty amazing tech features. These technologies are designed to keep our families connected and our commutes as comfortable and convenient as possible.
The Nissan Kicks allows drivers to connect their smart devices to their vehicle via Android Auto or Apple Carplay. Connecting your smartphone is easy, and once your device is ready to go, you can easily control it using Google or Siri. Whether you have a ride-or-die traveling playlist, like to keep up-to-date on your favorite podcast, or want to unwind with a good audiobook, it's easy to do in the 2021 Nissan Kicks. You can also use NissanConnect to seamlessly utilize navigation, hands-free texting, and more with voice commands via Bluetooth. NissanConnect can also help you find your car in a crowded parking lot when you forget exactly which row you parked in.
Beyond just keeping the driver connected with apps and entertainment, backseat passengers can also stay connected with the available 2021 Nissan Kicks WiFi capabilities. Next time you’re on a long road trip, your kids can enjoy all their favorite movies and shows without draining your data plan because you’ll be bringing WiFi with you wherever you go. Now that’s top of the link connectivity.
All the greatest safety and tech features in the world mean nothing if your vehicle cannot perform. Thankfully, the 2021 Nissan Kicks comes with some pretty stellar performance capabilities. There is no question as to what this crossover is capable of.
To begin with, the 2021 Nissan Kicks gets some pretty stunning fuel economy. This beautiful crossover can get 31 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. Those kinds of fuel efficiency numbers mean you’ll be saving a whole lot of money on gasoline, and when you’re saving that kind of money on gasoline, you’re free to spend it on something else instead! Now that’s a budget-friendly situation.
The Nissan Kicks also has some great horsepower and torque capabilities, which means you’ll get to enjoy optimum performance levels wherever you go. To begin with, the 2021 Nissan Kicks achieves up to 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Those kinds of numbers mean you won’t have any trouble getting up to speed, whether you’ve just been sitting at a stoplight or you’re merging onto the interstate.
The Nissan Kicks comes with speed-sensitive steering capabilities, which bring your driving experience to a whole other level. The electric power steering in the Nissan Kicks can detect how fast your vehicle is going. It then uses this speed level to determine how much power your vehicle’s engine needs to put out. When you’re going faster, you’ll need less power, so the speed-sensitive steering feature drops the power just a teeny bit. This brings your fuel efficiency up to some budget-friendly levels and also means you’re in for a more comfortable commute.
Hill Start Assist is a unique feature that the Nissan Kicks is proud to offer. Gone are the days of rolling backward down a steep hill when trying to start your engine. Hill Start Assist keeps your vehicle from rolling backward and helps you move forward quickly and efficiently. No more losing control of your vehicle for even a split second when swapping from brake to acceleration. It’s no wonder why so many people are swapping to the 2021 Nissan Kicks. This fantastic crossover definitely holds its own in the world of powerful and capable SUVs. You’d be proud to add one of these to your driveway.
