Editor's Overview

The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a brand-new vehicle, and among the latest crop of affordable, fresh-faced subcompact crossover SUVs. Starting under $19,000 and rising only a few thousand beyond that, the new Nissan Kicks is a standout value even among high-value rivals like the Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona and Chevrolet Trax.
