Reliability & safety Rating

4.5 out of 5

Nissan has a good reputation for reliability, scoring well in most areas for customer satisfaction, but we'd prefer its cars to be offered with a longer warranty as standard. Safety equipment is strong, even for the entry-level Visia model.

Nissan Juke reliability

Nissan came in 11th place out of 30 manufacturers in our 2020 Driver Power survey, four spots ahead of Renault. Just under 16% of owners told us they'd experienced one or more faults in the first year, and the highest scores were for running costs, fuel economy and the price of servicing.

Safety

Independent crash-testing by Euro NCAP found the Nissan Juke to be very safe in a collision. It was awarded five stars, with an impressive 94% for adult occupant protection and 85% in the child occupant category.

Safety features including autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping assist are all fitted as standard, but Nissan also offers optional safety packs for lower trims. This includes a Safety Shield Pack for £1,000, adding a 360-degree camera view, adaptive cruise control, driver fatigue warnings, blind-spot intervention and rear cross traffic alerts. There's also a semi-autonomous ProPilot Pack (which includes the above features), that can assist with steering, acceleration and braking on the motorway for £1,300.
