The 2020 Nissan Kicks is well suited to singles and couples that desire SUV functionality in an appropriately sized package. Seating five passengers across two rows, it boasts a total passenger volume of 93.9 cu-ft. Also ideal for daily carpooling (and those longer trips where comfort matters most), legroom in both rows is generous, at 43.7 and 33.2 inches for front and rear passengers, respectively.
Seatback pockets for magazines or tech, four cup holders, and four bottle holders take care of passenger storage requirements. Available upgrades add Prima-Tex simulated leather upholstery and heated front-row seating functionality. Cargo space is generous for a compact SUV, with 25.3 cu-ft of fixed storage behind the rear seats, and up to 53.1 cu-ft, when the rear seats are folded down.
All 2020 Kicks have two complete sets of LATCH fixtures (two lower anchors and one upper tether) for the rear-row outboard seats. The rear-row middle seat has an upper tether only.
The top tether anchors are clearly marked and found on the rear of the seatback. Lower LATCH anchors have an indicator to show where they are placed and are easy to reach. The 2020 Kicks can accommodate two seats (all types) in the second row, however, rear-facing and infant seats will likely impact front-row legroom.
An appealing mix of performance sensibilities could make the 2020 Kicks an easy decision. All trims are powered by a 122-horsepower 1.6L four-cylinder engine paired with front-wheel drive and continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The 2020 Kicks has seven inches of ground clearance and a suspension system that smooths over bumps in the road. The easy handling of its compact dimensions suits busy parking lots and tight turning circles. Fuel economy is another notable feature. The 2020 Kicks achieves an EPA-estimated 33 mpg combined, ensuring daily errands and longer road trips need fewer fuel stops.
