The Nissan Kicks (P15) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Nissan since 2016. Originally unveiled as a concept in 2014, the car was showcased across Brazil during summer 2016 to promote the Summer Olympics, of which Nissan was a lead sponsor.
The Kicks is equipped with Nissan's HR16DE 1.6L I4 gasoline engine shared with the Versa. This motor generates 125 hp and 115 lb-ft/155 Nm torque. Nissan rates this engine to receive an EPA fuel economy rating of 31 miles per gallon city and 36 miles per gallon highway.
The Chinese version uses Nissan's HR15 1.5L I4 gasoline engine.
The Kicks is offered with either a five-speed manual transmission or Nissan's X-Tronic CVT; the latter being the only option in the U.S. market.

On August 1, 2018, Mexican automotive magazine Autología took a Fan Edition version of the Kicks on a moose test. Due to a lack of an electronic stability program (ESP) in this particular trim, the Kicks nearly rolled over while performing the test at 65 km/h. A higher-spec model with ESP was also tested, and it managed to keep all four tires on the ground at the same speed but the driver did not feel the car could manage to return to the road, hence failing the test.
