Originally previewed as a concept in at the 2014 São Paulo auto show, the front-drive-only Kicks made its debut in production form a year ago. Despite its small packaging and design, the rear hatch opens tall enough for a 6-foot person to reach into the cargo area without ducking under the hatch.

The pitch? "Kicks is created to fit the needs of singles or couples looking for unique styling, roominess, personal technology, smart functionality and advanced safety features at an affordable price".

The "Gliding Wing" dashboard design is dominated by a centrally mounted 7.0-inch full colour display housing a comprehensive infotainment system with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. On higher trim levels, heated seats, leather-wrapped interior components, automatic climate control, and a Bose sound system are available.
