Hi, I joined this forum because I'm thinking of trading in for a brand new Nissan Kicks. I'd rather go as cheap as possible, and it looks to have a great introductory price for a brand new car at the base level, S. I'm also looking at the Hyundai Kona, Kia Soul, and Honda HR-V but these vehicles have a higher starting price at their lowest trim levels ($18K-$22K) compared to the Kicks S (seen them as low as in high $15K's or $16K).

I guess my first question, for a cost conscious guy like me, is it worth the extra dollars to step up to the SV or SR? Or is the S adequate given I'm really not looking for anything extra.

Doing homework like joining this forum, may check one out this weekend. Thanks.

If you can, spend a bit more. The SV offers quite a number of big features, like proximity key, digital dash, auto climate control, upgraded infotainment, alloy wheels, blind spot warning, fog lights, etc. Options other manufactures charge a lot more money for their cars.
With the SR, you are getting additional luxury features that cars in the price category don't usually get: 360 surround cam with obstacle detection, LED headlights, premium Bose stereo system, etc. Again, you are getting the features for way less than other manufactures want on their cars, even on Nissan's own higher tier vehicles.
If you are on a tight budget, the S is still a great car in getting the job done.

HR-V is great if you want the most dependable vehicle out. It has the most history behind it, enough to make a very educated decision.
Everything else isn't so clear cut.
