NISSAN JUKE Car Review
Dare to be different!
The Nissan Juke’s extrovert looks split opinion, you’ll either love it or hate it - and hundreds of thousands of motorists love it.
The Juke is Nissan’s baby brother to the hugely successful Qashqai crossover and the dramatic styling means this is a mass produced car that stands out from the crowd.
You get the commanding high up seating position of an SUV but with the less intimidating compact size of a traditional hatchback. On the inside it more functional but still has its own character, highlighted by a centre console shaped like a motor bike fuel tank. Interior space is only average definitely geared more towards families with small children, but the Juke rides well and is equally happy on a long motorway run as it is in heavy city traffic.
It drives and handles like a hatchback making it a relaxing drive, and the 1.2, 1.6 litre petrols and 1.5 litre diesel engines are all useful performers, but the 65 mpg diesel makes the most sense. But the Juke is all about a car aimed at buyers wanting something different, although it looks a lot wilder than it drives.
* A car for the extrovert but that ticks the practical boxes * Dramatic styling * Great handling *
