Default Nissan Kicks named one of Good Housekeeping’s “Best New Cars of 2019” award winners

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Good Housekeeping magazine named the 2019 Nissan Kicks subcompact SUV as one of "The Best New Cars of 2019."

The experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute partnered with Car and Driver magazine to test a mix of 50 new vehicles, picking the top-rated models in a range of categories. The Nissan Kicks emerged as the winner in the highly competitive subcompact crossover segment.

Using industry standards and proprietary protocols, the Good Housekeeping/Car and Driver testers rated the vehicles on safety, value, handling, design and technology – all strong areas of the Nissan Kicks design.

Writing about the new Kicks, the editors noted, "This super-affordable model checks all the boxes you want in a first car: great fuel economy, a smooth, comfortable ride and standard safety features, along with some extras you wouldn't normally expect."

And, in their "Lab Lowdown" they concluded, "When it comes to the Kicks, it's all about value. You won't find a more solid car at this great of a price." The starting price for the Kicks S FWD with Xtronic CVT transmission is $18,6401. The price as tested of the Good Housekeeping award winner was $23,330.

The 2019 Nissan Kicks is offered in three models: Kicks S, Kicks SV and Kicks SR. Each is equipped with a standard 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). The engine is rated at 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a smooth, fuel-efficient Xtronic transmission, fuel economy2 is rated at 33 mpg combined.

The interior provides ample passenger space throughout the cabin, including best-in-class3 front seat legroom. Kicks also offers an EPA-rated 32.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Kicks has modern and simple "Gliding Wing" instrument panel design is dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch color display housing a comprehensive infotainment system with available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity.

For the ultimate audio experience, the Kicks SR Premium Package includes the class-exclusive3 Bose® Personal® Plus sound system with a pair of lightweight 2.5-inch Bose® UltraNearfield™ neodymium speakers located inside the Kicks driver's seat headrest. Among the other on-board technology, Kicks features an available Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM). Safety, security and driver convenience features are strong points for Nissan Kicks. Automatic Emergency Braking4 is standard on all grade levels, along with seven air bags and RearView Monitor. Kicks SV and Kicks SR add Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
