A subcompact SUV may be a smaller vehicle than you are thinking about getting, but a vehicle like the Nissan Kicks has a lot of great things going for it, so read on to learn more.
Mark Phelan from the Detroit Free Press tell us, “The Kicks is most accurately described as a compact station wagon, but clever design and engineering imbue it with the visual and practical appeal that have made SUVs the dominant class of vehicles in the United States.”
SUVs are popular because they offer you a good amount of passenger space and cargo space, and the Nissan Kicks is no different. The Nissan Kicks has seating for up to five, and there is plenty of room for children and adults in the second row of seating. This vehicle also gives you a good amount of cargo space for its size. You can get 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seating and 53.1 cubic feet of space with the second row folded down.
As for fuel efficiency and performance, the Nissan Kicks does well. This vehicle is home to a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 125-horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque. This vehicle gives you 31 city miles per gallon and 36 highway miles per gallon in terms of fuel efficiency.
US News and World Report explains, “The Kicks is also a competent daily driver with excellent fuel economy, great maneuverability, comfortable seats, and a supple ride quality. If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, this Nissan should definitely be on your list.”
