MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

3.5 out of 5

The Nissan Juke might be bigger than before but certain versions are actually lighter than the previous generation car. Along with more advanced engines, this means efficiency has improved. The Juke started as a petrol-only model but now there’s also a hybrid model for even better performance and efficiency.

Nissan Juke MPG & CO2

The range starts with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a six-speed manual, or customers can pay a little more for a seven-speed 'DCT' dual-clutch automatic transmission. Nissan claims the manual can return up to 48.7mpg, and we actually beat this during our test drive, at least according to the trip computer. The automatic version gets a slightly lower 47mpg figure. CO2 emissions are from 133g/km for the manual and 137g/km for the automatic, resulting in an upper-tier BiK banding for company-car drivers. (VED) Road tax is charged at the standard rate.

The hybrid is more expensive to buy (although the difference is smaller on Nissan’s PCP finance deals), but promises a better fuel efficiency figure of up to 58.9mpg. CO2 emissions of as low as 109g/km in entry-level trim make it a better choice than the petrol engine for tax-conscious company-car buyers, but something like a Kia Niro plug-in hybrid will still cost much less in BiK (Benefit-in-kind) tax. In terms of VED (road tax), the hybrid costs £10 per year less than the petrol engine thanks to the government’s discount for ‘alternative-fuel cars’.

Insurance groups

Insuring the Juke shouldn't be too costly because the entry-level trim starts in group 13 out of 50. This is similar to the Renault Captur, which spans groups from 11 to 16, while mid-range versions of the Ford Puma sit in group 14.

Warranty

Nissan's warranty lasts for three years or 60,000 miles, which is the same as those offered by Volkswagen, SEAT, Skoda and Ford, but disappointing next to the seven-year warranty offered by Kia or five years of cover offered by Hyundai – Toyota even offers 10 years of cover on its cars (for up to 100,000 miles), so long as they’re serviced annually – or every 10,000 miles – by a main dealer. Nissan’s warranty can be extended for an extra cost.

Servicing

The 1.0-litre petrol Nissan Juke will require servicing every 12,500 miles or annually, whichever comes first. Service plans are offered, providing customers with fixed-price servicing that's protected against inflation on parts and labour and should help owners budget for future costs.
