The Nissan Kicks, nee Juke, is, well, kicky, a bite-size SUV with irreverant lines and a personality to match that’s been a reliable seller on both sides of its reimagination and redubbing. The 2022 edition of the Kicks is now hitting retailers across three trim levels, with a standard EPA combined fuel economy rating of 33 MPG. All Kicks are being sold for 2022 as front-drive models, powered by a standard 1.6-liter engine with variable valve timing, 16 valves and 122 horsepower. The Nissan-built Xtronic automatic transmission is also standard.
The Kicks will be offered for 2022 in S, SV and SR trim levels, all with front drive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across all Kicks grades, along with Nissan Safety Shield 360 and class-exclusive Rear Automatic Braking. Among the options are a remote WiFi hotspot and automated collision notification.
