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, but dropped to 18th position in 2021, which is a worrying trend. Just under 16% of owners told us they'd experienced one or more faults in the first year, and the highest scores were practicality, interior design and child-friendly features.

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 around £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.
