Nissan Kicks Specs 

The 2018 Kicks comes with a 1.6L inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque that shuttles power to the front wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission. With this configuration, the Kicks offers rapid acceleration and smooth shifts that are perfect for powering the pint-sized vehicle.

The excitement for the Nissan Kicks comes with the curving roads and tight corners, which it tackles with remarkable poise. Whether you're zipping through the city or enjoying a scenic ride on a back road, this SUV offers a fun, exciting ride.

Interior Space and Comfort

The 2018 Nissan Kicks accommodates four adults comfortably in two rows, with well-padded seating that provides long-distance comfort. Despite its compact footprint, the Kicks is spacious inside, ensuring that adults have all the headroom and legroom needed to stretch out and relax.

With the seats upright, the Kicks has 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The second-row backrest folds in a split to expand the cargo bay to 53.1 cubic feet as well, so there's plenty of room in this compact crossover.

Safety Features

Automatic emergency braking and a rearview camera are standard for all Nissan Kicks models, but several advanced safety features are available. With these features, the Kicks can stop on its own if it detects a possible collision to prevent it completely or to minimize the impact.

Blind-Spot Monitors, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, and a surround-view camera are all optional. Though the visibility is excellent to begin with, these features help to lower the risk of a collision from areas just outside your line of sight.


The 2018 Kicks comes with a 7-inch NissanConnect® touchscreen infotainment system that features a user-friendly interface, crisp graphics, and plenty of third-party app compatibility. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration is available, which allows you to stream music, podcasts, audiobooks, and other media from your smartphone to make the most of the ride.

A Bose® premium sound system, automatic climate control, and multiple USB ports are some other technology highlights for the Kicks.
