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 model. Unfortunately, the Juke came in 64th place out of the top 75 cars in the 2023 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, but Nissan will be hoping the facelift will revitalise the Juke for better results in future editions.

Nissan Juke reliability

Nissan as a brand came in a disappointing 19th place out of 32 manufacturers in our 2023 Driver Power survey, with a lower-than-average 19% of owners reporting a fault within the first year. Its placing puts it behind rivals Toyota (12th), Kia (sixth), and Hyundai (17th).

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 an Advanced Safety Shield Pack, which comes as standard with manual Tekna trim levels, 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 for Tekna models with an automatic gearbox, that can assist with steering, acceleration and braking on the motorway and in congestion at low speeds.
