Its 1.6-liter I4 puts out 125 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a CVT.

The Kicks comes with just one infotainment setup -- a 7.0-inch screen that packs both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, although you have to move up to the mid-grade Kicks SV to get those two connectivity options.

Three USB ports are standard, as is Bluetooth and a backup camera.
