You can’t mistake a Nissan Juke for anything else. Its distinctive styling is unlike anything on the road.
The Juke has a small boot in comparison to its closest rivals, with 352 litres of capacity with the seats in place and 1,189 litres with them folded down.
The Juke isn’t the most exciting or engaging car to drive, but it does come with a good selection of petrol and diesel engines that are fairly frugal.
The Juke is aimed at the family market, so its five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP is a big selling point.
Nissan usually scores pretty well for reliability, which should reassure those looking to buy a Juke.
Handling is reasonable, however the steering is too light and artificial to feel truly involved in the driving experience. Road noise in the cabin at higher speeds isn’t great, either.
MPG and CO2 emissions aren’t too bad for the Juke, but if economy is what you’re after, then the 1.6-litre diesel model is the one to go for, boasting CO2 emissions of just 98g/km and average fuel economy of 74.3mpg.
The headlights bare the Nissan face and remind you of the Nissan 370Z sports car. They’re also accompanied as standard by LED daytime running lights.
All Juke models come as standard with alloy wheels.
Inside, the Juke is just as funky as it is outside. With hard plastics and glossy black finishes, it looks good, although it doesn’t feel as well made as some close rivals.
