5/10

Overall
verdict

Top marks for effort but the Juke isn’t quite as interesting or as fun as it looks.

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.

 

Driving

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.

 

Owning

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.
