To rival the segment leader, the Honda HR-V, the Nissan Kicks measures 4,295 mm in length, 1,760 mm in width and 1,590 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,610 mm. The exterior features a contemporary styling inspired by Nissan's latest design language, borrowing most of the cues from the Nissan Kicks concept.

The interior of the top-end SL grade features a light tan and black color combination, flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel with buttons, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Around View Monitor, automatic climate control, start/stop button, and a large color MID in the instrument cluster beside the analog speedometer.
