What is it?
There isn’t another family hatch on sale that’s quite like the Nissan Juke. Its styling really is unique, combining crossover, supermini and SUV in a way like nothing else. Underneath, though, it’s much more normal.
The Juke looks like a crossover but only the expensive ones actually get four-wheel drive. The rest drive just like a normal front-drive family hatch, so are rather forgettable.
On the inside
More style-first on the inside, with a coupe-like dash that makes it feel very modern. The high-set view out is good too, but space in the rear isn’t great and the shape seriously compromises boot space.
Good reliability is a given with a Nissan, and the diesel delivers strong fuel economy too. It’s on the pricey side though: frequent special editions offer best value.
