The Latin NCAP has given the Nissan Kicks a four-star rating. Based on Nissan’s V-platform, the car is fitted with two airbags, ABS, ESC, seatbelts with pretensioners and Isofix child seat mounts, at the rear. It managed to score four stars in adult occupancy, as well as child occupancy.
If the structure and foot area had been more stable during the frontal crash test, then the car may have received five stars. Not having an airbag deactivation switch and Isofix alerts cost it one star in the child occupancy protection parameters.
