The upcoming 2021 Nissan Kicks is ready to introduce further updates. The first version of this subcompact crossover was introduced in late 2018 and soon after that, it gains more audition than the Nissan Juke model.
As you may have already known, the last Kick has been refreshed and the upcoming 2021 Kicks will be an only carryover model. However, some small modifications will happen that will give a visually better design. Besides that, the upcoming model will keep its shape and dimension.
2021 Nissan Kicks Exterior Upgrades
As we mentioned earlier, the latest 2021 Nissan Kicks will come with the same shape and dimension. Generally, most of the updates this time will happen on the front. First thing first, the new Nissan Kick will get small modifications that will include a restyled headlight, more sporty bumper, lower body cladding, and so on.
Security will be also better. Even the base model will provide a long list of standard features. The standard package brings automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, high-beam assists, automatic rear braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors.
The new small subcompact 2021 Nissan Kicks will get some refreshments inside. The first impression is positive and the manufacturer added more standard equipment. Besides that, there will be more upscale materials as the techs. Like before, the same layout is present and Kick continues to be offered with two rows of seats.
The cabin looks clean and we can see the flat-bottom steering wheel, bold contrast stitching, HVAC interface, and circular air vents. As we mentioned, there will be a more standard feature, and Kicks now includes a big 7-inch touchscreen, cloth upholstery, six-speaker, Bluetooth audio streaming, and so on. More luxury can be found on the higher trims.
2021 Nissan Kicks Powertrain
Like the previous model, the new 2021 Nissan Kicks will be available with the same engine choice. Unfortunately, there will be a single option. However, from some gossip over many websites, we can expect some improvements or even more better performances. One thing is for sure, the upcoming Kicks will be more fuel-efficient.
The previous generation comes with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that is capable of delivering 122 horses and 114 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available with a continuously variable transmission. Finally, this year’s model will host an all-wheel-drive system optionally and front-wheel-drive remains to be standard.
Arrival Date and Cost
The upcoming 2021 Nissan Kicks is the compact SUV that will get small modifications and updates over the previous model. Based on the past release, we can expect a redesigned version to arrive at the beginning of the next year.
Because of minimal changes, the MSRP of the latest Kicks model will be definitively below 20k, with destination fees included. The battle for the throne will be fierce because in the same segment are models such as Honda HR-V, Ford EcoSport, and Toyota C-HR.
