In the meantime, let’s dive into our five favourite things about the 2023 Kicks and why we think is the best SUV in Toronto right now for sale.

The 2023 Kicks is Highly Affordable


In terms of the market, the top compact crossovers include over a dozen options but three of the more popular picks for Toronto drivers are the Mazda CX-30 (MSRP  $27,050), Hyundai Kona (MSRP $25,303) and the Nissan Kicks (MSRP $20,998). If you are looking for the best value for your dollar the Nissan Kicks is the clear winner. 

The 2023 Kicks is loaded with standard features including cruise control, air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone. Go up just one trim level and things like heated side mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, remote engine start and automatic climate control are immediately added. The top-of-the-line SR with the Premium package includes every luxury you want like remote monitoring and control via a smartphone app, Wi-Fi hotspot and a premium eight-speaker Bose sound system.

The 2023 Kicks Has a Practical Cabin

Inside the 2023 Kicks find a comfortable and modernly designed cabin. The backseat is especially roomy considering how compact the SUV is as a whole. That means your full-grown passengers can travel with you with enough leg and shoulder room to feel comfortable (and that is more than we can say about the Kona or C-HR). In terms of cargo capacity, you will be blown away by how much you can fit inside.

With all the seats down, the Kicks offers 914 litres of space which according to Car and Driver is equivalent to 19 carry-on suitcases. There are also conveniently placed spots around the interior for small things like cell phones and wallets including a larger-than-normal glovebox. With small SUVs, there is often a concern about visibility but Nissan thought about that with their design. With large windows and a low hood, you can see clearly out the front and shoulder checking.


The 2023 Kicks Has Popular Tech Features


The past few years have been huge for connectivity inside the modern vehicle. Things like Wi-Fi hot-spotting and wireless charging were unheard of just a few years ago and now they are a must-have in new vehicles. The Nissan Kicks does NOT disappoint. The 2023 Kicks S sports a 7.0-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth connectivity. Levelling up to the SV model earns you an 8.0-inch display and an extra USB-C port.

Finally available Nissan Connect allows you to remotely access vehicle functions from your mobile device or smartwatch including locking your car or calling for roadside assistance. And yes, a Wi-Fi hotspot is available with the addition of the Kicks Premium Package (which also includes a Bose stereo system).

The Nissan Kicks Has an Excellent Fuel Economy


The Kicks has an amazing fuel economy, besting almost every competitor in the class with its efficiency. Toronto drivers can expect up to 7.2 L/100 km combined. That boils down to fewer trips to the gas pumps for you which means more money in your wallet for the things you want.


The 2023 Kicks Has Numerous Standard Safety Features

The 2023 Kicks comes standard with some of the best safety features on the market right now. First up is Forward Collision Mitigation which lets you know if an accident is about to happen and pumps the brakes in last-minute situations. Reverse Automatic Braking happens when the sensors notice something behind your Kicks and stop you from running into or over it.


Lane Departure Warning alerts you if the vehicle begins to leave the lane you are driving in and Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert gives you a heads-up if a vehicle is in your blind spot before you make a lane change. Finally, Rear Parking Sensors let you know if there are things behind your Kicks when parking. Rounding out this comprehensive suite of safety features are Automatic High-Beam Headlights.
