2018 Nissan Kicks Crash Test & Rating – Video
The Nissan Kicks was introduced in the 2018 model year as a replacement for the Nissan Juke.
The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 14 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Maximum upper interior intrusion measured 10 cm at the instrument panel.
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.
