Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Nissan's smallest crossover receives a styling update for 2021 which includes a larger grille, streamlined headlamps and taillamps, redesigned front and rear bumpers, and a new 17-inch aluminum wheel design. Nissan has also expanded the availability of the contrasting black roof option to cars painted in Scarlet Ember Tintcoat, Boulder Gray Pearl, and Electric Blue Metallic. Inside, SV and SR models now come with a new 8.0-inch infotainment system, and all Kicks trims now feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.A Wi-Fi hotspot is now available as an option on the top spec SR trim.

PROS
Peppy around town,
spacious cabin,
generous standard equipment.

CONS
Anemic at highway speeds,
engine sounds thrashy at high revs,
a few more storage cubbies wouldn't hurt.
