Nissan's small crossover, the Kicks, has been a popular choice for urban adventurers and small families since its introduction. However, despite its many virtues, one notable absence has been the lack of an all-wheel-drive option. That's all changing with the unveiling of the 2025 Nissan Kicks, which not only addresses this demand but also brings a host of other upgrades and enhancements.

Design

From the moment you lay eyes on the 2025 Kicks, it's clear that Nissan has undergone a significant design evolution. Gone is the signature V-Motion grille, replaced by a more symmetrical and clean front fascia. The overall aesthetic is sharper, with angular lines and a prominent beltline giving the Kicks a more substantial presence on the road. The rear end retains the iconic floating roof motif, but with a modern twist, thanks to sleek vertical taillights and a less blocky rear gate. Beyond its exterior redesign, the 2025 Kicks boasts increased dimensions, offering more interior space for both passengers and cargo. With over an inch of additional shoulder room and an expanded cargo area, the Kicks sets a new standard for comfort and versatility in its class.

Inside the cabin, the upgrades continue with a modernized interior featuring dual display screens for the driver and infotainment system. The centerpiece is a large, high-resolution touchscreen, complemented by a host of advanced tech features, including optional 360-degree surround-view cameras and a premium Bose sound system. Wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto further enhances the driving experience, allowing seamless integration with smartphones and other devices.

Powering the 2025 Nissan Kicks is a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, delivering 141 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), this engine offers responsive performance and improved fuel efficiency. However, the most significant addition to the Kicks lineup is the availability of Nissan's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. For the first time, drivers can enjoy enhanced traction and stability, particularly in challenging road conditions.

To complement its all-wheel-drive capability, the 2025 Kicks comes equipped with a range of advanced safety features as part of Nissan's Safety Shield 360 system. These include automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic braking, and lane departure warnings. Additionally, the SR trim level offers ProPilot, adding steering assistance for a more relaxed driving experience.

Overall, the 2025 Nissan Kicks represents a significant step forward for the popular crossover, addressing key areas of improvement while retaining the qualities that have made it a favorite among consumers. With its bold design, advanced technology, and newfound all-wheel-drive capability, the Kicks is poised to continue its success in the competitive small SUV segment. Whether navigating city streets or exploring off the beaten path, the 2025 Kicks is ready for whatever adventure lies ahead.
