2021 Nissan Kicks: More than meets the eye

You might be surprised just how much standard equipment this utility vehicle comes with.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

This is an inexpensive vehicle, but its interior is surprisingly decent. Nothing about it feels flagrantly cheap.

Nissan offers five different two-tone paintjobs on the Kicks.

There's a surprising amount of cargo space in this vehicle.

Don't expect a lot of power in this Nissan. It only has 122 horses in its stable.

SR models come with an 8-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across the range.

Nissan designers reworked the Kicks' front end to make it look more assertive.
