Nissan hasn't changed anything on its smallest crossover for 2019. The Kicks was all-new for 2018 and replaced the quirky Juke.

Pros
Wonderfully efficient powertrain,
Costco-size cargo space,
charming design.

Cons
Slow in our testing,
driver-assistance features limited to the basics,
warranty is nothing special.
