KICKS: YOUR TECH, YOUR WAY, RIGHT NOW

If you are a resident of the surrounding areas-such as New Haven, Hartford, Waterbury, and Meriden-you can try out the brand-new Nissan Kicks at our dealership in Wallingford, CT. Currently in its third model year, the Kicks has several active safety features added as standard for 2020, while continuing to be a fun-to-drive subcompact crossover SUV. The 2020 Nissan Kicks is split into S, SV, and SR trims.

   EXTERIOR

Riding on 16-inch steel or 17-inch alloy wheels, the Kicks is designed as a four-door vehicle. Standard exterior features include automatic halogen headlights, power outside mirrors, and a chrome grille. The SV is enhanced with features such as heating ability on the outside mirrors and a pair of roof rails, and exclusive to the SR are features such fog lights for penetrating illumination, turn-signal indicators on the outside mirrors, and LED headlights for brighter and longer-lasting illumination.

   PERFORMANCE

This Nissan vehicle uses a front-engine front-wheel-drive layout. Under its hood is a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque, which is hitched to a continuously variable transmission. Due to its drivetrain and powertrain configurations, the Kicks produces 31 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

   INTERIOR

As a subcompact vehicle, the Kicks provides two rows of cloth-trimmed seats to accommodate up to five people, with passenger volume measured at 93.9 cubic feet. Front seating consists of a 6-way manually adjustable driver's seat and a 4-way manually adjustable passenger seat. The rear seats can be folded flat to expand cargo volume from 25.3 cubic feet to 32.3 cubic feet. The SR stands out with its leather-wrapped steering wheel and sports cloth seat trim with orange accents and contrast stitching.

   TECHNOLOGY

For comfort and convenience in the vehicle, Nissan provides features such as remote keyless entry, push-button engine ignition, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, six-speaker audio, AM/FM radio, two cup holders and four bottle holders, three USB ports and an audio jack for hooking up mobile devices, and a 7-inch touchscreen. If you go with the SV or SR, you will get enhancements such as automatic temperature control, a smart key system, remote engine start, a cargo cover, a 7-inch Advanced Drive-Assist Display for reducing distraction on the road, the NissanConnect telematics system, smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and three months of SiriusXM satellite radio.

   SAFETY FEATURES

For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, the Kicks includes two front impact airbags, knee airbags for the driver and front passenger, two front seat-mounted airbags, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features include cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, anti-lock braking, lane departure warning, rear automatic braking, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, high beam assist, a rearview camera with a rear sonar system, hill start assist, vehicle dynamic control with traction control, and vehicle immobilization as a theft-deterrent mechanism. A rear door alert is added on the SV, and only the SR comes with a 360-degree camera, active ride control, intelligent trace control, and intelligent engine braking.
