What's New in the 2020 Nissan Kicks?

Other than the addition of Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of active safety features as standard, the 2020 Kicks sees no major changes. See the 2020 Nissan Kicks models for sale

Which Kicks is the Best?

The Kicks' main selling points are value and usable cargo space. Given the affordability of all three trim levels, this is one vehicle where we'd recommend opting for one of the two upper trim levels. For just $2,000 over the cost of the base model, the Kicks SV comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a cargo cover, automatic climate control, push-button start and more, while the top-spec SR adds LED lighting, a surround-view camera and additional styling elements for just another $1,000. No matter how you option it, the Kicks comes in well below the cost of most comparably equipped competitors in the subcompact SUV segment, so it's really hard to go wrong from a value perspective. Find a Nissan Altima for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Nissan Kicks Cost?

The 2020 Nissan Kicks is available in three trim levels: S, SV and SR. The price jump between trims is negligible, and there's only one option package, making your selection rather easy. All prices shown include Nissan's mandatory destination and handling fee, which is a hefty $1,095.

The base Kicks S trim ($19,535) comes standard with 16-in steel wheels, roof rails, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split folding back seat, Bluetooth connectivity, a 7-in touchscreen, three USB ports and a 6-speaker sound system with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack and a media player interface. For 2020, even the base S trim comes with Nissan's suite of active safety tech, which the company refers to as Safety Shield 360. It includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane-departure warning, radar-based blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams.

The SV trim ($21,595) adds 17-in alloy wheels, heated body-colored mirrors, proximity entry and push-button start, rear door alert, automatic climate control, a color digital instrument display, a cargo cover, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite radio.

The range-topping SR trim ($22,215) gains a special exterior trim, a rear spoiler, LED headlights, fog lights, surround-view parking cameras, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and simulated leather dash trim. Optional only on the SR is the $1,000 SR Premium package, which includes heated front seats, Prima-Tex simulated leather upholstery, a security system and an 8-speaker Bose sound system.

2020 Nissan Kicks vs the competition

2020 Honda HR-V -- If you like the Kicks' combination of maximum interior space in a minimal exterior package, the HR-V is your best alternative. Its available AWD system gives it wider appeal.

2020 Hyundai Kona -- The Kona can't match the Kicks' interior space, but from a driving perspective, it's more engaging and considerably quicker, and it's one of our favorites in the segment.

2020 Mazda CX-30 -- Heavily based on the Mazda3, the all-new CX-30 is one of the more upscale subcompact SUVs on sale today. Attractive styling, a potent engine and a great interior are among the CX-30's main selling points.

Used Kia Niro -- Though you could consider a new Niro, the hybrid crossover would be pricier than the Kicks. Still, there are plenty of Niros available on the used market. Any one would give you big-time fuel economy, a pleasant driving experience and plenty of interior room.
