New 2021 Nissan Kicks To Launch On December 8th

The 2021 Nissan Kicks will get a facelift and possibly a new powertrain


  • The Kicks was introduced for the 2018 model year for North America.

  • The Kicks is Nissan’s entry-level SUV.

  • Are we looking at a Kicks e-Power?


Details surrounding what to expect for the introduction of the updated Nissan Kicks for the 2021 model year are non-existent. Nissan’s press release simply states that the virtual reveal will take place on December 8th.

Given how recent the Nissan Kicks is, we assume that the 2021 model year will bring a facelift, a nip-tuck, a few new standard features, and, here’s where the guessing begins, a new powertrain. Nissan introduced a Kicks e-Power earlier this year in other markets complete with updated front and rear fascias. The kicker is that the e-Power Kicks includes a series-hybrid set up which will not only help overall efficiency but possibly improve performance as well.

The current Kicks is powered by a 122-horsepower 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine. The e-Power is a combination of a 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine and an electric motor for a total of 95 kW (129 PS or 127 horsepower) and a maximum torque rating of 260 Nm, or 192 lb.-ft. of torque. The instant torque will surely increase the small SUV’s appeal.

The funny thing about December 8th is that Genesis will show off the new GV70 SUV and Acura will reveal the all-new 2022 MDX. It will be a busy day but we’re up to it.
