Quirks and Features of the Kicks
Here are few neat features I have discovered after driving the Kicks SR for awhile. It is quite amazing the amount of features and thoughtfulness put into for such an inexpensive car.
- If you have the wipers on and you put the Kicks in reverse, the rear wiper automatically turns on.
- Intermittent wipers are speed sensitive.
- Brightness of gauges, infotainment screen can be independently adjusted. They are independent of the headlight setting. Ambient light sensors in the cabin will adjust the brightness.
- Auto headlights with sensitivity adjustment and adjustable shutdown time after engine off.
- Stomp on the gas peddle, the CVT will fake shift like a regular auto tranny. Step lightly on the gas peddle, you get smooth CVT.
- Driving down hill, the transmission will auto engine brake.
- Bose headrest surround speakers focus sound to appear in front of the driver, like home HiFi system. Most high end car audio just get louder and cleaner, but doesn't make the sound appear to come from the front.
Please share any you have discovered.
