Nissan has truly dominated the crossover market in the past 15 years or so, initially with the Qashqai and later with the smaller Juke.
Produced in Sunderland, this funky-looking compact SUV might have more competition than ever, but this model is still able to stand out, with generous equipment levels, a roomier interior than ever and plenty of personalisation all impressing – the areas that really matter in this class.
Here’s what you need to know about the latest Nissan Juke…
What engines are available?
If you’re holding out for an electrified Juke, you’ll have to wait a bit longer, though Nissan has recently confirmed that a new hybrid model will join the range – likely later on in 2022.
So for the time being, the only engine option is a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol. Available with a six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it puts out 112bhp and 200Nm of torque.
Manual Jukes are the quickest, with these able to hit 0-60mph in 10.4 seconds, with a top speed of 112mph possible. In terms of fuel efficiency, Nissan claims 47.9mpg, and CO2 emissions of 134g/km.
What trim levels are offered?
Nissan offers a good selection of trim levels on the Juke, with equipment highlights and pricing as follows.
Visia – from £19,770
Standard equipment on the Juke includes cruise control, electric windows, electric door mirrors, air conditioning and LED lights at the front and rear. Though it lacks a touchscreen, it gets Bluetooth and a DAB radio. Plenty of safety equipment is included too, such as autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, high beam assist and traffic sign recognition.
Acenta – from £21,370
It’s worth making the jump up the Visia specification, which easily justifies its extra expense with its 17-inch alloy wheels and eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A reversing camera and raft of connected services are also included.
N-Connecta – from £23,370
Our pick of the range is the N-Connecta, which gets a revised set of 17-inch alloys, along with satellite navigation and a seven-inch TFT dial screen. Keyless entry, automatic climate control and a leather steering wheel are added as well.
Tekna – from £24,870
If you want a more stylish look, take a look at the Tekna, which gets a set of large 19-inch alloy wheels, along with ambient interior lighting. A heated windscreen, heated front seats and Bose sound system are included too. Elsewhere, plenty of safety kit is added too – such as an around-view monitor, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
Tekna+ – from £26,270
Right at the top of the range, the Tekna+ majors on personalisation, thanks to its revised 19-inch alloy wheels, two-tone metallic paint and Fuji Red exterior styling package.
What about personalisation?
The Nissan Juke is a car that absolutely majors on personalisation, with a broad range of bold and bright colours on offer, including Vivid Blue, Fuji Sunset Red and Burgundy. Each trim level gets a bespoke set of alloys too, while on certain specifications you can choose to have the Juke with a two-tone scheme, bringing a roof painted black, silver or red.Enquire on a new Nissan Juke
