Buyer’s guide to the Nissan Juke

Considering Nissan’s funky Juke crossover as your next car? Here’s what you need to know

Ever since the Nissan Juke debuted in 2010, this model proved to be a gamechanger.

Just like its larger Qashqai sibling, the Juke invented its own sector – the compact crossover market, to be precise. This segment has boomed in popularity ever since, and 10 years later, Nissan has a new second-generation Juke.

The latest model continues to be as quirky to look at as ever, but is now more spacious, advanced and efficient than before. If you’re in the market for a small crossover, the Juke remains one of the best. Here’s what you need to know about it…

What powertrains are available?

The engine choice couldn’t be simpler with the Juke – this crossover is now only available with a single new 1.0-litre petrol engine.

The three-cylinder petrol unit produces 115bhp and 200Nm of torque – enabling a 0-60mph time of 10.4 seconds and a claimed top speed of 112mph. In terms of efficiency, Nissan claims it will return up to 47.9mpg, with CO2 emissions of 112g/km.

The engine is on offer with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as an option – the latter being marginally thirstier and slower.

Further options could be introduced in the future.

What trim levels are offered?

What about personalisation?

The Juke has always been a great car to make your own, and this latest Juke is no different, with the model having loads of personalisation options.

Starting with colours, cool shades such as Vivid Blue, Fuji Sunset Red and Chestnut Bronze are all stand-out choices. An easy way to add style is to choose two-tone paint, which includes having a black, silver or red roof, depending on the chosen body colour of the car.

The customisation is also carried through to the interior, as you’re able to choose various cabin personalisation packs – including having orange, black or grey accents throughout the interior.

In terms of conventional options, there are very few available. It could be worth looking at the accessories list, though. Here you’ll find bike racks, ski carriers and tow bar kits, which could prove useful, depending on your needs.
