For The Nissan Juke is a striking small SUV that’s well equipped and attractively priced. Strong desirability helps keep resale values high.

Against Practicality isn’t great and many will find the driving position uncomfortable. Interior quality isn’t a strong point and neither are fuel economy nor emissions. It isn’t particularly good to drive, either.

The Nissan Juke is a refreshingly different small car that successfully blends supermini with SUV. Many rivals are more practical and better to drive, though.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

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.

Entry-level Visia cars come with alloy wheels, air-conditioning, electric windows, stability control and six airbags. Acenta spec adds climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB socket, while N-tec brings sat-nav, a reversing camera and sportier styling. Tekna gets heated leather seats, and keyless entry and starting, but we’d avoid this trim because it makes the Juke too pricey.

The entry-level 93bhp petrol is available only in Visia trim; it’s no ball of fire, but is perfectly adequate for short trips, and its low price makes it our favourite. If you regularly venture onto faster roads, though, it’s worth considering the 1.5-litre diesel or one of the turbocharged 1.6-litre petrols.

I downsized but wanted something eye catching and not extortionate in price. The Juke stood out as fitting the bill and I got mine in November 2011. …

This car looks great but after a year of ownership I'm left feeling disappointed. My biggest issue is the noisy, slow and yet still not really…

I just wanted one of these! Yes, I know it's not the most practical - the boot could be bigger and there's not too much room in the back, but..... 5…
