For The diesel engine has a reasonable amount of power, while the Nissan Juke 1.5 dCi Acenta seems worth the extra over Visia trim, as it adds climate control, Bluetooth and Nissan's Dynamic Control System to the basic Visia trim.
Against Its 57.6mpg isn't great,and this version looks expensive next to the equivalent 1.6-litre petrol model that does 47.1mpg. The engine is a bit grumbly, too.
The Nissan Juke 1.5 dCi Acenta is a nicely balanced package. Its decent equipment, reasonable economy and respectable power make this one of the best Jukes.
The Nissan Juke is aimed at people who want to stand out, so there are lots of optional extras to help you personalise your car despite the generous standard equipment.
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 Nissan’s Dynamic Control System. A Tekna model with leather trim, satellite-navigation, a reversing camera and a keyless system completes the line-up, but we’d avoid this because it makes the Nissan Juke a bit pricey.
Three engines are available – 115bhp 1.6 and a 1.6 turbo petrol with either 188bhp or 197bhp, plus a 109bhp 1.5 diesel. Both turbo petrols are properly quick, and while the more mainstream engines aren’t, they’re powerful enough. We reckon the diesel is best thanks to its blend of performance and economy.

I have had my Juke for a month now. Not long I know; but long enough for me to fall in love with it. My three previous cars were all Minis. Absolute…
The Nissan Juke 1.5 dCi Visia isn't a bad model, but we think it's worth spending the extra to go for a model with Acenta trim.
