2019 Nissan Kicks Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The 2019 Nissan Kicks, the sixth member of the Nissan crossover and SUV line-up, is designed to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for expressive styling, personal technology, smart functionality – and advanced safety features – at an affordable price. First introduced in spring 2018, Kicks enters the 2019 model year relatively unchanged.

The 2019 Nissan Kicks features unique style, personal technology, available intelligent safety features, an efficient powertrain and strong value positioning. It also embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility with standard Automatic Emergency Braking and available Intelligent Around View® Monitor, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.


The 2019 Nissan Kicks exterior combines emotion and practicality by blending bold wheel arch fenders and high crossover stance with familiar Nissan design signatures, including a V-motion grille, boomerang headlights and taillights and "floating roof" with a "wrap-around visor" look. Available exterior features include standard Intelligent Auto Headlights (I-AH) and available LED low beam headlights with LED signature accents.

The 2019 Nissan Kicks is offered in a range of seven exterior colors – plus five two-tone combinations. Three of the two-tone color schemes utilize a black roof and contrasting body colors (white, orange or red), along with one each orange roof/grey body and white roof/blue body.

Inside, the Kicks story is one of quality and futuristic design in a cabin full of the innovative features expected by its tech-hungry target audience. The interior provides ample passenger space throughout the cabin, including best-in-class front seat legroom. Cargo space behind the 2nd row is larger than four key competitors. Kicks also offers an EPA-rated 32.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, and has an additional non-EPA rated 21.8 cu/ft of cargo space in the trunk well, enabling Kicks to offer a total 53.1 cu/ft of usable cargo space.

Kick's modern and simple "Gliding Wing" instrument panel design is dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch full color display housing a comprehensive infotainment system offering Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity.

For the ultimate audio experience, the Kicks SR Premium Package includes the class-exclusive Bose Personal Plus sound system with a pair of lightweight 2.5-inch Bose UltraNearfield™ neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks driver's seat headrest. Among the other on-board technology, Kicks features an available Intelligent Around View Monitor (I-AVM).


Every 2019 Nissan Kicks comes with a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). The engine is rated at 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a smooth, fuel-efficient Xtronic transmission, fuel economy is rated as best-in-class in all three segments: 31 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined. Kicks is offered in front-wheel drive only.

2019 Nissan Kicks also offers standard Traction Control System (TCS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), front disc/rear drum Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and electric power steering with a tight 34.1 foot turning radius.
