The quirky SUV-style of the Nissan Juke is a fun alternative to the Ford Fiesta and MINI Countryman, especially given it's low list price. Don’t be fooled by the high driving position and chunky 4x4 looks, though – underneath is a car that is definitely more of a supermini. It comes in six specs – Visia, Acenta, Acenta Premium, n-tec, Nismo and Tekna. You only get a choice of three engines in everything, including the souped-up Juke Nismo – a 1.5-litre diesel and two 1.6-litre petrols (with or without a turbocharger) - but only one model actually offers four-wheel drive and you can only get that with a CVT automatic gearbox. Plus, the boot space is also more akin to the MINI's tiny offering rather than the capacity of a Range Rover, and tall passengers will struggle for space in the back. However, you do get loads of equipment for your money and if you want better performance, the 197bhp 1.6-litre Nissan Juke Nismo is quicker and more powerful, with an even more distinctive look.
