- the updated 2021 nissan kicks starts at $20,650 for the base s model.
- that's a $430 increase from last year, and the refreshed version has newly standard features.
- the 2021 kicks is at u.s. dealerships now.
nissan's entry-level kicks crossover is still cheap, but it's a bit less cheap than last year. the updated 2021 kicks now starts at $20,650, a $430 increase compared with the 2020 kicks' base price. that uptick seems fair given that it has newly standard features including apple carplay and android auto.
the better-equipped sv trim is also a bit more expensive, starting at $22,450, a $600 increase. it now has a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and offers more optional driver-assistance and connectivity features than before. the sr starts at $23,090, a $620 increase, and is now offered with a $1200 premium package that adds features including an upgraded audio system, faux-leather upholstery, and a heated steering wheel and heated seats.
there are no mechanical changes to go along with the 2021 model's visual updates and new features. all 2021 nissan kicks models still have the same 122-hp, 1.6-liter inline-four engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (cvt) as before. like competitors such as the hyundai venue and kia soul, front-wheel drive remains the sole drivetrain choice.
nissan says that 2021 kicks models are already arriving at u.s. dealerships
