Driven: 2021 Nissan Kicks SR


2021 Nissan Kicks SR

I'd wanted to drive a Nissan Kicks since they first debuted in 2018, but never got around to getting one for a press loan until just last week. So does the Kicks kick out the fun? Does it kick butt? Does it have pumped up kicks? I'll stop. You're welcome. 

My full review of the Kicks was just posted over at AutoWise.com, where I said it is a funky compact CUV with a lot to offer, just not in the speed department, and that's totally it. It's got a really neat interior, a semi-sporty exterior, and handles surprisingly well for what it is, which is clearly its highpoint. It is pokey, FWD only, and is saddled with a CVT as its only transmission option. I'm not a fan of most CVTs, and this one keeps it that way. However, the car does have high points, and you get a lot of car for the cash. You can read my entire review of the 2021 Nissan Kicks SR on AutoWise.

I recently had the chance to read your review on the Nissan Kicks, and I appreciate your honest and balanced perspective. Your witty introduction drew me in, and your thorough evaluation highlighted both the strengths and weaknesses of the vehicle. I particularly liked your acknowledgment of the Kicks' unique features, such as its funky design and commendable handling.
