Among all other family vehicle types, the segment of small crossovers has reached beyond the point of saturation. It is the most common type of family vehicles we often get to see around us. So, it can be guessed easily how difficult will it be for each of these models to outshine others which have little difference with each other. Let us take the example of the 2021 Nissan Kicks. This one too is a small crossover model that has several rivals to fight with, namely the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, 2021 Kia Seltos, 2020 Hyundai Venue, and2021 Mazda CX-30. But surely it has got some strong selling points up above its sleeves that help the model survive in such cut throat competition. The sales team of the Watsonville Nissan dealership analytically explained that one of the strongest selling points of the 2021 Nissan Kicks is that it can be bought within a small budget while it never asks you to compromise on your rights to have the latest features and the right value returns against your one-time investment.
The 2021 Nissan Kicks as a small crossover can be counted as a well-rounded model in the segment of entry-level SUV and that’s how it gets highlighted in the current year lineup of Nissan.
What is Special About the 2021 Model Year Edition?
Launched as a replacement model to the Nissan’s other model Juke in the year 2018, Kicks simply kicked in with its own charm and utility score, outshining many of its closest rivals. For the year 2021 Nissan packed the Kicks models with some excellent collection of safety and convenience features that are made standard on all trim levels.
Refreshed for the year 2021, Nissan aimed to keep the market demand high for the Kicks model series, so that it keeps booming among the ocean of small crossover models. In other words, the 2021 Kicks gets bigger in size this time, wears a bolder grille at the front and even expands its horizons of visibility with the help of the newly available LED headlights. New fake air intakes now are able to squeeze in more air through the lower portion of the front grille, and all this makes the 2021 Nissan Kicks look more handsome than ever before.
The 2021 model year lineup of Nissan Kicks queues up its power line with a 1.6-liter inline-4 engine making 122-horsepower. It has got a punchy acceleration which is duly supported by a continuously variable automatic transmission. Under the hood you can see the rear disc brakes replacing the antiquated drum brakes that were till now present on all trims. But the base S model remains to be the same without any such changes.
This standard powertrain enables the 2021 Nissan Kicks with an impressive fuel economy record that makes the EPA rate the small crossover mileage as 31 mpg in the city, 36 on the highways, and 33 mph from a combined trip, announced the Nissan dealership Watsonville.
