Good Housekeeping gives the Nissan Kicks their top award!

When it comes to auto awards, we, naturally, think of auto magazines and organizations having something to say about the vehicles you can find at our Aurora CO Nissan dealership. However, the magazine Good Housekeeping wasn’t shy about addressing four-wheeled purchases, and in fact they gave the Nissan Kicks the 'Best New Cars of 2019' award for the subcompact crossover segment!

When reviewing over 50 vehicles, Good Housekeeping looked at the following areas:

  • Safety
  • Value
  • Handling
  • Design
  • Technology

Luckily, when you drive in from Denver to test drive a Nissan Kicks, you'll see that it excels in all these areas.

Safety: even though the Kicks is an entry-level model, you can still find available advanced safety features to keep you safer and more secure when traveling around Centennial. All Kicks' come with automatic emergency braking, and you can get an Intelligent around view monitor, blind spot monitoring, and rear cost traffic alert on the higher trims.

Value: the Kicks FWD has a manufacturer's suggested starting price right below $19K and the suggested starting number for the top trim in FWD starts right under $21K. That's less than the Toyota C-HR, Honda HR-V, and Hyundai Kona, to name a few competitors.

Handling: for confident driving around Highlands Ranch, you can get Intelligent Trace Control for turns, Intelligent Engine Brake, and Active Ride Control that helps when going over bumps. We also love the available Hill Assist for when you head up to the mountains.

Design: the Kicks has a style that's far from shy, and you'll surely stand out in Littleton CO and everywhere you travel. There's the eye-catching roofline that slopes, bold rear fenders, and bright color options. The interior is equally fresh, and we love the available flat-bottom steering wheel and contrast stitching that adds a pop of color throughout the cabin.

Technology: since the Kicks is aimed at young professionals, designers wanted to make sure there was a lot of tech aboard. There's a standard 7-inch touchscreen, available Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto®, and the option to get a Bose® sound system.

If you're ready to see why Good Housekeeping chose the Nissan Kicks as one of their picks, make your way into our dealership for a test drive.
