Toward the end of 2017, Nissan took the wraps off of the Kicks – the crossover tasked with the job of replacing the funky Juke. When the Kicks debuted, the automaker stated that the compact vehicle would start at below $19,000. It looks like Nissan has kept its word, as pricing for the Kicks has been announced and it'll start at $18,965 (including the $975 destination charge).

That price is for the entry-level Kicks S trim. With its starting price of just under $19,000, the Kicks S undercuts the now discontinued Juke S by $2,225, as that vehicle carried a starting price tag of $21,190. Climbing up the Kicks ladder gets you to the SV trim that starts at $20,665. The range-topping Kicks SR trim is priced from $21,265.

For the time being, the Kicks is exclusively sold as a front-wheel-drive model. Since a lot of the Kicks' competition has all-wheel drive, we'd be surprised to see if Nissan doesn't offer a variant that sends power to all four wheels in the future. Every Kicks is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder motor that produces 125 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to a continuously variable transmission that helps the small crossover get up to 33 mpg on the highway.

The entry-level Kicks comes with 16-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, automatic emergency braking, Bluetooth, automatic headlights, and three USB ports as standard. When it comes to the subcompact SUV segment, the Kicks S is one of the more affordable offerings. Its starting price tag makes it more affordable than the Toyota C-HR, Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, and Hyundai Kona.

Look for the Kicks to enter showrooms later this spring.
