Nissan Kicks 2023: Engine and Performance

Available with a 1.6 L 4-cylinder engine, the 2023 Nissan Kicks is not a vehicle that prioritizes power. The emphasis is rather on the pleasant experience of driving it. Its engine is able to deliver 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque.

The Nissan Kicks comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Fuel economy is one of the characteristics that is often highlighted in Nissan Kicks reviews. With a 6.6 L/100 km rating in the city, 7.7 L on the highway, and a combined fuel consumption rating city/highway of 7.2 L, the 2023 Kicks drinks less gas for the same distance, compared to the 2023 Volkswagen Taos, a competing crossover that also rides on a 1.5 L engine.

Nissan Kicks 2023 Exterior Design

Available in a wide variety of colours, the Kicks’ appearance changes a little depending on the version.

For those that want more than the 16-inch steel rims of the Nissan Kicks S, both the Nissan Kicks SV Special Edition as well as the SR Premium come with black alloy rims.

The 2023 Kicks comes standard with heated side mirrors, that ensure there are no compromises on your visibility, even when the weather acts up.

In addition, the rear spoiler and the thin headlights from the last Nissan Kicks generation complete well this crossover’s dynamic style.

Regardless of the style you want for your vehicle, you’ll find a Kicks that will meet your selection criteria.
