our review of the 2018 nissan kicks remains one of the most popular reviews on for another week, appearing in fourth place behind stalwarts like the 2019 toyota rav4, 2019 hyundai santa fe and 2019 ram 1500. the review may be outdated from a model-year perspective — you can buy a 2019 nissan kicks now — but it's still applicable, as little has changed for the kicks besides a slight increase in price.
reviewer brian wong praised the 2018 kicks for its practicality, versatility and value despite the fact that it comes only in front-wheel drive.
"if you don't need four driven wheels, the kicks is an outstanding entrant in this class," wong wrote. "it offers a combination of value and interior space i haven't found in other models along with superior fuel efficiency. the kicks might not be quite as fun or quirky as the juke was, but it is the superior vehicle — and worth much consideration for utility shoppers."
wong's full review is linked below.
