For The Juke is a strikingly-styled crossover with a funky, well-equipped interior and fun handling. Itâ€™s well equipped and priced, too.
Against The ride is firm, and only kids will have enough headroom in the back. Emissions and mpg are nothing to write home about.
A refreshingly different small car that successfully blends supermini with SUV. Rewarding to drive and temptingly equipped, but not that practical.
The Juke is aimed at people who want to stand out, so there are lots of optional extras to help you personalise your car. Even the standard equipment is pretty generous, though.
Entry-level Visia cars come with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, electric windows, stability control and six airbags. Meanwhile Acenta spec adds climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, an iPod socket and Nissanâ€™s Dynamic Control System. A Tekna model with leather trim, satellite-navigation, a reversing camera and a keyless system completes the line-up, but weâ€™d avoid this because it makes the Juke a bit pricey.
Three engines are available â€\x93 115bhp 1.6 and 188bhp 1.6 turbo petrols and a 109bhp 1.5 diesel. We havenâ€™t driven the 115bhp petrol yet, but itâ€™s likely to be the pick of the range because itâ€™s significantly cheaper than the other engines and averages a respectable 44.1mpg.
