Among small, inexpensive hatchbacks/crossovers, the Kicks has surprisingly stiff competition.
The Hyundai Venue is similarly front-wheel-drive only but its interior is a half-step ahead of the Nissan.
Same goes for the Soul, which is a practical hatchback wrapped in a fun-looking box.
The Ford Ecosport has available all-wheel drive, but it's more expensive and far behind the pack.
The Crosstrek is among the most expensive, but offers standard all-wheel drive and a better interior.
The CX-3 is aged, but good looking and fits well into big cities.
