Nissan Juke n-tec

The striking Nissan Juke SUV was designed to go head-to-head with the Skoda Yeti and MINI Countryman as well as small cars like the Ford Fiesta and Kia Rio.

The Nissan Juke n-tec sits in the middle of the Nissan Juke range, available with either the 115bhp 1.6-litre petrol or the 109bhp 1.5-litre diesel engines, There is no option of four-wheel drive but you can specify Nissan’s CVT automatic gearbox on the petrol model.

Opt for the Nissan Juke n-tec and you’ll have little need to look at the options list. As standard there’s climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, sat-nav, a premium sound system and even a reversing camera to avoid any nasty scrapes Externally, the Nissan Juke n-tec gains large 18-inch alloy wheels and tinted rear windows.

It’s no surprise the 109bhp diesel offers the lowest running costs averaging 70.6mpg. The 1.6-litre petrol engine, meanwhile, returns 44.8mpg.

Good points

The Nissan Juke still looks like nothing else on the road and blends its SUV looks with low running costs. What's more, when the time comes to sell, it benefits from decent resale values, too.The Nissan Juke n-tec is also extremely well equipped and with the 1.5-litre diesel has low running costs. Buyers will appreciate its high driving position and decent value for money.

Bad points

Unfortunately, the Nissan Juke’s raised ride height translates into plenty of body roll in the corners, Worse still the ride isn’t that good – meaning the small SUV isn't much fun to drive. It can be uncomfortable and tiring over long distances and unsettled over bumpy roads.Some of its rivals also offer even lower running costs, while the small boot and cramped rear seats mean that in many ways, the Nissan Juke is slightly more style than substance.

What you get

  • Alloy wheels
  • Auto climate control
  • Front electric windows
  • Cruise control
  • Sat nav
  • Rear electric windows
  • Bluetooth

Our choice

The small 1.5-litre diesel engine is an ideal match for the Nissan Juke providing brisk performance while averaging 70.6mpg.
