Billed as a sub-compact SUV the Toyota C-HR might lack all-wheel drive but it makes a strong visual statement backed by a fair measure of functionality.

With such an impressive selling nameplate in their portfolio, Nissan expands the Rogue lineup to include the more diminutive Rogue Sport, called the QashQai in other markets, this new sub-compact CUV promises most of what consumers like in the larger Rogue in a package that is 10 inches shorter and less expensive. It also has none of the polarizing looks of the Juke, but buyers should know, it may not be quite as fun to drive.

The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t thrill, but its pert styling and good value make it worth a look.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks stretches the definition of crossover SUV. Its perky styling may be butch in just enough places to hint at utility, but pint-size dimensions, limited underhood muscle, and no option for all-wheel drive confine the 2018 Kicks to feeling more like a little hatchback with verve.
Viewed as the tall hatchback that it is—it shares its platform with the budget-grade Nissan Versa, after all—the Kicks delivers a modern, pleasant driving experience for not much cash.
The 2018 Kicks is available in a trio of trim levels—S, SV, SR—that share a 1.6-liter inline-4 engine rated at a paltry 125 horsepower paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive. With just 2,650 pounds to shuffle around, the Kicks isn’t slow, but it’s not exactly a corner carver, either. It’s also short on off-roading credentials since all-wheel drive isn’t on the options list.
The Kicks’ expressive exterior gives way to a muted, but well-equipped interior. Four adults fit fine as long as they’re not broad-shouldered, and the 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat will swallow their suitcases. Let’s just hope they’re merely driving to the airport, since the Kicks struggles at highway speeds.
That little engine that kind of, sort of could doesn’t impart a big penalty at the pump; the Kicks is rated at 31 mpg city, 36 highway, 33 combined, according to the EPA.
At about $19,000, the base Kicks S is cheap, cheerful, and not lacking for too much. That price includes surprising safety gear like automatic emergency braking, plus a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Bluetooth with a trio of USB charging ports. The Kicks SV runs $1,700 more but seems worth the cash for its upgraded infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, and configurable LCD screen in the instrument cluster.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks looks more bold than its limited underhood muscle suggests.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t look like a frog. Its predecessor, the Nissan Juke, certainly did. Whether that’s a good thing is up to you, but we prefer the Kicks’ more cohesive appearance and its comparatively subtle styling charms.
The Kicks sits slightly higher than a typical five-door hatchback, yet its seating position won’t be confused with a crossover.
Up front, the Kicks looks downright conventional, kicking the Juke’s bug-eyed headlights to the curb in favor of a wide grille. At the rear, the angular taillights could have been plucked from just about any other car or crossover in Nissan’s lineup. The unpainted bumpers and fender flares save Nissan a few bucks while giving the Kicks a more rugged feel than its lack of all-wheel drive would otherwise suggest.
Standard 16-inch wheels on the Kicks S look downmarket, but Nissan figures most buyers will opt for the SV with its 17-inch alloy wheels and its available contrasting roof that makes the most of its “floating” rearmost pillar.
Inside, the Kicks breaks little new ground. Its dash features a 7.0-inch touchscreen for—with more sophisticated software and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto on SV and SR trims—but the screen washes out in bright light. A textured panel adds some visual interest and we actually like it more than the stitched vinyl covering that’s on SRs with the Premium package.
Nissan could have played a little more with fun colors and materials inside the Kicks, but the overall look is about right for its low price tag.
