5 reasons to buy the 2021 Nissan Kicks

1. Small enough for city driving

The 2021 Nissan Kicks is a crossover SUV designed to be small enough for city driving. Whether you're zipping down alleyways or squeezing into the last available parking spot, the 2021 Kicks is up for the job. If you want a family- or pet-friendly car while staying small, the Kicks gives you the best of both worlds.

2. Great for kids and pets

Despite its small footprint, the 2021 Nissan Kicks has plenty of space inside for your friends, kids, or pets (or a combo of all three). The 2021 Kicks comes standard with two LATCH connections and a rear car seat tether for the middle seat. It's very easy to install car seats in any of the second-row seats. Plus, with more than 25 cu-ft of cargo space, there's plenty of space in the rear for Fido, baby strollers, or both.

3. Go farther on each tank

When you're driving with family, you don't want to have to detour to the gas station too often. So you'll love how the 2021 Nissan Kicks is able to go farther between fill-ups. With the standard 1.6L four-cylinder engine, the 2021 Kicks gets an EPA-estimated 33 mpg combined fuel economy.

 That means you can stay on course and get to your destination more efficiently.

4. Standard driver aids

Whether you're a cautious driver or you just enjoy having the latest technology supporting you on the road, you'll appreciate that the 2021 Nissan Kicks has a host of driver-assistance features. Lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and more are standard. Additional features like adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera are also available.

5. Bold exterior colors

The 2021 Nissan Kicks may be practical, but you can also choose a model with some personal flair. With 12 available exterior color options, you can find one that speaks to your style. Whether you want Monarch Orange Metallic or Scarlet Ember, you can find a 2021 Kicks that's as bold as you are.
