The 2021 Nissan Kicks Packs a Powerful Punch

The 2021 Nissan Kicks might be Nissan's smallest SUV, but it has plenty of heart and power to meet the needs of drivers in Ottawa.

What's New

Small yet spacious, the 2021 Nissan Kicks is an enigma. The vehicle's small exterior footprint silently slips through city traffic as well as hides its surprisingly large interior that easily holds adults and cargo. For under $20,000, drivers in Ottawa can drive home in a brand-new vehicle that is stylish, bold, and downright fun.

New Features

The Nissan Kicks got a peppy update for 2021 with new exterior styling, upgraded interior styling, and new standard technology features. With changes in every area, Nissan really took the time to invest in the unique Kicks.


The Kicks has always had a unique look, but the 2021 redesign really freshened it up. The exterior now features a larger grille, streamlined headlamps and tail lamps, redesigned front and rear bumpers, and a 17-inch aluminum wheel design. For the interior, Nissan redesigned the Kicks' centre console, dashboard air vents, front-seat armrest, and door-trim panels to make them more stylish as well as user-friendly. The Kicks has a small exterior footprint but a ton of interior space. Adults fit comfortably in both rows of seats, and the Kicks offers 716 litres of cargo capacity behind the rear seats.


A 122-hp four-cylinder engine powers all models of the 2021 Nissan Kicks, which also features front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission. While it might not seem like a lot of horsepower, the engine provides plenty of get-up-and-go for this small SUV. Drivers will enjoy a peppy ride with agile steering no matter where the Kicks might take them.


A NissanConnect infotainment system provides an intuitive and easy-to-operate multimedia experience for drivers of the Kicks. A 7.0-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on the Kicks, though higher-level models get an 8.0-inch touchscreen display.


Nissan has long been at the forefront of safety and driver-assist technology, and the Kicks comes well equipped with features that make driving safer and easier. Standard driver-assist features include blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and more. The 2021 Nissan Kicks offers a unique and distinct SUV experience and is available for sale in Ottawa at Myers Kanata Nissan.
