Nissan Juke review

£14,935 - £26,565
Published: 23 Jun 2022


What should I be paying?

Prices start at £20,420, which is reasonable for a car that's stylish, roomy and solid-feeling. But that base model's 16-inch castors, small infotainment screen and lack of phone mirroring mean a salesman isn't going to have much trouble nudging you into the second-up Acenta trim.

That's the first to get navigation, the eight-inch touchsreen and connected services. Only one engine option remember, but prices there are £22,020 for the manual and £23,520 for the DCT auto.

Step up one more rung to N-Connecta and you can have the Juke Hybrid for £27,250 – just over £3,000 more than the equivalent spec manual 3cyl.

The top trim is Tekna+, which gets the option to do all the custom paint and interior jobs. It's £26,920 for a manual, £28,420 for an auto and £30,150 for the Hybrid. Over £30k might sound a lot for a Juke, but the Hybrid’s strong residuals mean monthly payments make it look more enticing.

In N-Connecta trim an ICE Juke with the auto gearbox is £392 per month with £1,500 down as a deposit. At the time of writing, a Juke Hybrid in the same spec would be £404 per month with the same deposit, and you’d hope to recoup that extra outlay through better fuel economy. Nissan claims between 55.4 and 56.5mpg for the Hybrid and between 45.6 and 47.1mpg for the 3cyl petrol. 

Warranty is three years/60,000 miles. The old Juke and current Qashqai, both out of Sunderland, generally don't break down.
