2021 Nissan Kicks Pricing Announced

Restyled compact crossover covers Gen-Z drivers’ wants and needs for less than $20,000.

Jan 8, 2021
Nissan has announced pricing for its new 2021 Kicks S, the restyled, upgraded compact crossover that goes on sale in early February.
Originally introduced in 2018 (replacing the Juke), the 2021 Nissan Kicks (S, SV, and SR) covers all the bases when it comes to young drivers—age 17 to 23—and their desire for cool-looking, tech-savvy, fuel-economical, and solid transportation that they can make their own, without taking every dime of their paycheck.

Just for Kicks

With 2021 Nissan Kicks pricing starting at $19,500 (plus $1,095 destination/handling fee) for the S, a motherlode of digi-tech upgrades are the Kicks' biggest win. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, as well as a 7-inch display are now standard equipment in the base model, and an 8-inch screen is added to the options list for Kicks SV and SR. For most Generation-Z drivers, properly functioning cell phones are critical personal accessories. Three USB ports are found in the front (1) and back seat (2) areas of all Kicks models to ensure devices stay charged. The higher trims have a USB-C outlet, too. From a comfort perspective, SV and SR 2021 Nissan Kicks models feature upgraded materials on the doors and seats.

In addition to subtle-yet-aggressive front-end and rear-area refreshing, three new monotone and two-tone color options have been added. (According to Nissan, with its seven primary colors and the two-tones, the 2021 Kicks can be painted in 100,000,000 different color combinations.)

The 2021 Nissan Kicks' powertrain remains status quo, with a 1.6L I-4 engine, front-wheel drive (we want AWD), and Nissan's Xtronic continuously variable transmission. Adding SV/SR rear disc brakes is another boon for Kicks on the SR and SV trim levels.

We recently had a first-drive evaluation opportunity with the Boulder Grey Pearl/Super Black 2021 Nissan Kicks SR you see in these photos. This pre-production crossover is equipped with the optional Premium package, which includes a Bose audio system (with amplifier, eight speakers, and Personal Plus headrests), Prima-Tex appointed seats, heated front seats and steering wheel, a security system, tonneau cover, NissanConnect Services Wi-Fi hotspot, and over-the-air updating for head unit firmware.
While pricing for Nissan's 2021 Kicks S starts at $19,500, we're waiting to learn costs for Kicks SV and SR.
