There’s certainly no mistaking the Nissan Juke - even after the explosion of crossovers in the marketplace, it continues to look unlike anything else on the road. But it isn't just the crossover supermini's distinctive style and character that have made it consistently popular since it was introduced in 2010 – it's compact, generously equipped, good value and fun to drive too.
The Juke is solidly built, with a functional, modern cabin that complements the distinctive exterior. There's plenty of space in both the front and back, and the seats are comfortable, with the high driving position and good visibility you'd expect from a crossover vehicle. Front-wheel-drive Jukes have a 354-litre boot with a false floor under which you can store valuables or loose items; the back seats fold too to increase carrying capacity further. All this space belies the Juke's compact size, which, along with its tight turning circle, makes it easy to manoeuvre around town.
The AA described the Juke as being “all about easy, sporty performance”. It's quiet and smooth on the road and composed through corners and bends, with impressive, supermini-like handling and a comfortable ride. Engines include a 1.6-litre petrol, a punchy 1.2-litre turbopetrol and a 1.5-litre diesel – the latter is the most economical to run, returning up to 70.6mpg, but go for the 1.2-litre and you'll still get almost 50mpg.
The Juke achieved the maximum five-star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests, and standard safety kit on newer Jukes includes six airbags, Isofix child seat points, whiplash-reducing front headrests, and anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist and electronic stability control.
Standard equipment on the latest used Nissan Juke models includes remote central locking, front and rear electric windows, electric mirrors, alloy wheels and air conditioning; Acenta Premium adds the Nissan Connect touchscreen with sat nav, a reversing camera and DAB digital radio, while Tekna models have leather upholstery, heated seats and automatic lights and wipers.
