There's no doubt that the Nissan Juke is an eye-catching design for a hatchback and while many love its styling, it's not to everyone's tastes. That's a shame because the Juke is an excellent compact crossover offering great motoring value.
The Nissan Juke has helped to revitalise the compact SUV segment, much like its larger sibling the Qashqai did before it in the bigger crossover class, and so other carmakers have followed in its steps. The Juke is still one of the better performers with lots of practicality and decent handling to be had.
There's an excellent driving position which gives a great view of the road ahead and the front wheel drive offers something for everyone and while it will not be going off-road on a regular basis it does perform well on rough terrains.
Powered by a range of economical and impressive engines, there's an excellent 1.2 litre petrol DIG-T unit that offers fuel economy of around 51mpg while delivering excellent performance around town. For those who want more power, particularly on long journeys which suit the Juke really well, there's a very good 1.6 litre dCi unit which will return 67mpg and there's also a turbocharged 1.6 litre petrol unit which has economy of 47mpg.
One of the main attractions for owning the Juke is the impressive level of equipment that is fitted as standard and the list includes air con, alloy wheels, driver seat adjustment and electric windows. Other models come with climate control and a slightly more upmarket interior.
Safety equipment includes tyre pressure monitoring and anti-lock brakes as standard. Other trims come with Nissan's excellent Safety Shield system which constantly monitors around and ahead of the car for potential problems.
The Juke hatchback has a funky design and comfortable interior which help to make it a great car to drive around town and on long journeys. The equipment levels impress and its handling helps to keep it ahead of what is becoming a crowded compact crossover segment.
Essentially, the Juke offers an unusual but highly effective vehicle that is more practical and spacious than its ordinary hatchback rivals and for those who love the styling, there's little to fault the Juke on.
