    While urban living gets more expensive year after year, Nissan offers its drivers some much-needed relief. The 2022 Nissan Kicks is the brand's best value yet, an affordable urban driver that delivers the luxury perks you crave. Fun to drive, outfitted with generous technology, and classier than its low MSRP would suggest, this is Nissan at its best.

    For years, Nissan has been the king of vehicles that look far more expensive than they really are. While vehicle prices from other auto brands climb each model year, Nissan keeps things comfortably in reach. Nissan has designed the latest Kicks to exceed the mass appeal for which subcompact SUVs are practically known. Roomier than a sedan but less bulky (or costly to fuel) than a van or truck, the 2022 Nissan Kicks does everything just right.

    Whether you're a new driver in search of the perfect do-it-all vehicle or have been a small SUV driver for years, the 2022 Nissan Kicks will satisfy your needs—and surpass expectations, too. There is so much to love about this new entry that it deserves a closer look by anyone shopping for an affordable and versatile new car.

    Practical Performance

    Automotive snobs may brush off the 2022 Nissan Kicks for its seemingly low performance figures. The base model has a 1.6-L I-4 engine, which delivers 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. While there are certainly higher figures in the auto market, the Kicks never feels slow or unresponsive. A test drive of this new Nissan will belie those paper measurements, instead delivering a fun and capable everyday drive.

    The continuously variable automatic transmission offers smooth shifting and directs power to the front wheels. While all-wheel drive is not an option, the front-wheel drive setup is more economical; you get up to 31 MPG city and 36 MPG highway. Take your daily commute or explore the town in style, without continuous visits to the pump. What the Kicks may seem to lack in power, it more than makes up for in value.

    Yet, it's worth considering the purpose of the 2022 Nissan Kicks. No SUV should be designed to sear down the racetrack or barrel through deadlocked highway traffic. This subcompact SUV does what it should: offer a driving experience appropriate for urban driving.

    An Urban Hero

    Can you brag about driving as fast as an eagle dives to catch prey? Certainly not, but you can absolutely boast that you got a great value from the 2022 Nissan Kicks. Should anyone question this utilitarian, everyday ride, ask them how often they've actually driven their high-horsepower vehicle at anything near its potential. In reality, most high-performance SUVs use high horsepower and torque figures to charge higher prices. You may feel buyer's remorse commuting at a comfortable pace through city traffic when your car is unreasonably designed to leave competitive racers in the dust.

    But not the Nissan Kicks. It gives you the power you really need behind the wheel. Accelerate and stop responsively, reach speed limit figures with ease, and save money on fuel all the while. Even its deliberate, aerodynamic lines catch the air to improve performance and optimize efficiency.

    Plus, its lightweight chassis makes for sharp, precise steering, easing navigation through tight traffic. The suspension is tuned to offer a comfortable ride, smoothing out manholes, potholes, and other unpleasant road conditions. Plus, braking is lightning-fast, and a balanced body allows for quick-reaction turns with a low risk of rollovers. The 2022 Nissan Kicks knows what it's designed to be: a well-priced vehicle that drives as you drive.

  • Interior

    A Spacious Cabin Design

    This is where Nissan doesn't hold back. What the 2022 Kicks lacks in braggart performance figures, it more than makes up for in its comfortable cabin. In fact, this subcompact SUV is a master illusionist. While the exterior body appears lightweight and sleek, it conceals a surprisingly spacious interior. Stepping into the cabin elicits the kind of "How do they do it?" feeling for which Nissan is practically known.

    You may first notice the attractive contrast upholstery and cool, matte surfaces, with touches of forward-thinking tech. Overall, the Kicks' interior seems to borrow influences from luxury sports cars and contemporary home interiors alike. Take a seat in the aeronautics-inspired Zero Gravity seats, which perfectly balance ooh-and-ahh relaxation with long-term body support.

    Even the rear seats are roomy enough for three adults—a rarity in the subcompact SUV market. Plus, a cargo capacity of 32.3 cu.ft. means that you can load up for work, travel, the outdoors, and more. Simply fold down the 60/40 rear seats to maximize storage without cramping the interior. What's more, you get a deep glovebox, huge side pockets, a cavernous center console, and other concealed storage compartments. Stay stocked and ready for any kind of commute—and keep delicate items hidden, too.

    An Optimized Design

    Nissan has engineered the 2022 Kicks to optimize space without adding exterior bulk. For example, the rear cargo bay has a low floor to increase storage capacity. In fact, you can actually store a bicycle in the trunk! Meanwhile, the ceiling above the front row of seating is heightened to accommodate taller drivers. A perfectly balanced ride height enables clear views through busy streets and comfortable cabin entry.

    Nestle into a comfortable cabin with fast, automatic climate control, plus available Quick Comfort seats. These seats aren't just heated; they target cold spots in a deliberate sequence to warm up fast on chilly days. Additionally, an available heated steering wheel warms frigid hands and makes for a comfortable grip.

    Feature-Rich Design

    The 2022 Nissan Kicks has even more smart features to enjoy. Stay prepared for winter driving with the available Remote Engine Start System. Warm-up your engine and cabin (or get the AC going) to quickly transition from indoor comfort to Kicks luxury. You'll feel like a dedicated driver is awaiting you with a temperature-controlled ride. Remote Engine Start is completely secure, too, so you can activate your engine without increasing your risk of vehicle theft.

    That's just one of the many ways the 2022 Kicks rewards drivers who take it home. Available Rear Door Alert provides audible notifications if you leave valuables (or loved ones) in your back seat. As for safety, the Nissan Intelligent Mobility system doesn't just protect you; it anticipates danger and responds automatically.

    Standard Safety Technology

    Every trim of the 2022 Kicks comes standard with Nissan Safety Shield 360. This suite of driver-assist technology includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, which reacts to sudden road obstacles and pedestrians instantaneously. Lane-departure warning keeps you aware of your surroundings, even while navigating winding roads. Meanwhile, available adaptive cruise control takes over for your drive while braking automatically when necessary.

    The Intelligent Around View monitor, an optional feature, streams a comprehensive 360-degree view of your surroundings. Trust Blind Spot Warning detection to change lanes and exit highways with ease, so you can drive in total confidence. Plus, there's even more safety tech to discover when you test drive the all-new Nissan Kicks.

    Infotainment Technology

    Tech isn't all about safety, either. In the new Kicks, it's about the joy of driving as well. As a prime example, the standard infotainment package is intuitive and resourceful. The 7-inch touchscreen display is like a smart tablet on the go, set comfortably in the center dash. Its combination of touch response, dials, and buttons caters to every driver's preferences.

    At your fingertips, you'll have control over audio entertainment, smartphone connectivity, and Bluetooth phone calls. Utilize Android Auto or Apple CarPlay to stream navigation, stay in touch with contacts, and connect your favorite entertainment apps. Meanwhile, the available NissanConnect is your hub for in-cabin Wi-Fi, plus communication with the Nissan smartphone app.

    Work and play on the go while also tracking important vehicle information like service due dates. And take advantage of the customizable digital cluster behind the steering wheel to track valuable data. Stay on top of pertinent info, like outdoor conditions and any vehicle concerns that need attention. Additionally, you can review the Kicks' enormous driving range and toggle through streaming entertainment.

    Upgrade For Even More

    Best of all, nearly all of the above features come standard. The 2022 Nissan Kicks is one of the auto industry's most generous base models. However, you can still upgrade to the SV trim or SR trim to enjoy a host of extra features and still stay within budget.

    For example, enjoy concert-like audio with the enviable Bose Personal Plus Audio System. Intelligent speakers stream sound in a variety of configurations, depending on your tastes. You can even set the speakers to immersive, surround-sound mode to optimize entertainment for a full cabin.

    Add to the above optional compatibility with the smart Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and the MyNISSAN portal's host of concierge services, and you have a vehicle designed to work for you every day—no matter where you go. Some cars are just designed for transportation, but the 2022 Nissan Kicks does more. It's designed to be your intelligent partner in travel.
