The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.2
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you need a spacious new vehicle for the tiniest of parking spaces (and budgets), the Trax is an acceptable but mediocre contender. The 2020 Nissan Kicks is a quirky and cute crossover that’s inexpensive, but some of the details just feel cheap.
