Added Versatility

With the previous-generation Kicks, the sole drivetrain was front-wheel. With the 2025 edition, Nissan will be breaking new ground by offering traction-enhancing AWD system with a special snow mode. While the Kicks likely won’t be winning any awards as a hardcore off-roader, it does boast 8.4 inches of segment-leading ground clearance, enough to navigate rough roads with added peace of mind.

Beneath the hood, the ’25 Kicks will house a new 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder that’s connected to the latest version of Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT). This enhanced engine replaces last year’s 1.6-liter powerplant, which had a less-robust output of 122 horses.

Designed for the City

While the redesigned Kicks will retain the familiar boxy look, Nissan has made a few design tweaks for added visual appeal. This look is best described as strong and sporty, as it features wide fenders, a subtle roof spoiler, and full-width LED taillights that divide the liftgate and wrap around the combination lights on the flared rear fenders. Fans of athletic footwear will no doubt appreciate the addition of 3D-accents to the Kicks’ rocker panels, inspired by athletic sneaker soles.

Elevated Interior

The ’25 Kicks’ contemporary cabin will be a cocoon-like haven that drivers can enjoy for miles on end. Keeping things light and airy to counter the more aggressive exterior was essential, which is why Nissan has outfitted the latest Kicks with their Zero Gravity seats (which distribute weight and pressure across the occupant’s body for optimal comfort) and redesigned the available panoramic sunroof to reduce wind noise and maximize headroom.

On the tech front, the ’25 Kicks will flaunt a digital dashboard display containing two 12.3-inch screens: one for instrumentation and the other for infotainment. The sophisticated new infotainment system can be enjoyed in Classic or Enhanced view, the latter of which is distinguished by its extra set of features. Along with that, the multimedia system will offer wireless smartphone connect for both Android and Apple, and an upmarket Bose audio system with 10 speakers (including built-in ones in the front headrests). Other standout features you can expect in the new Kicks include a bold flat-bottomed steering wheel, large cup and bottle holders, heated seats and steering wheel, and modern touch-capacitive switches.

The ’25 Kicks will also be more spacious than the previous. Front shoulder room has increased by 1.7 inches, while rear occupants can enjoy an additional 0.9 inches of knee room and 1.5 inches of shoulder room. The cargo area has been expanded as well, providing a best-in-class 60 cubic feet with the rear seats folded and a 40.3-inch opening that makes it a breeze to load things such as cumbersome suitcases.

Advanced Safety Systems

Nissan brings its A game to the safety court by installing the cutting-edge Safety Shield 360 suite in every Kicks trim. Along with things like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, and lane departure alert, the ’25 Kicks will now have the innovative ProPilot Assist system, with steering assistance and lane centering capabilities. Other safety features to look out for include driver attention monitoring, rear occupant alert, and a class-exclusive surround-view camera.
