Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2
The Juke’s starting price looks very reasonable and is roughly on a par with that of the Skoda Kamiq. However, the poshest trims push the price up by many thousands of pounds, so they’re harder to recommend.
Equipment, options and extras
Even entry-level Visia trim gets you cruise control, air-conditioning and electric windows all round. You’ll need step up to Acenta trim if you want alloy wheels, though.
We reckon N-Connecta makes the most sense; this mid-range trim brings a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearlever, climate control and keyless start.
Tekna and Tekna+ models get 19in alloys, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, and a variety of safety aids that we’ll discuss in more detail in the safety section, but these top two trims are rather pricey.
The latest Juke is too new to have featured in the 2019 What Car? Reliability Survey, but Nissan as a brand performed woefully. Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer came 28th in the overall league table (of 31 manufacturers).
The Juke comes with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty as standard, although this can be extended at extra cost.
Safety and security
Although the Juke hadn’t been appraised for safety by Euro NCAP at the time of writing, it does come with lots of safety aids to prevent you from having a shunt in the first place.
Even entry-level Visia models have automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. Meanwhile, range-topping Tekna and Tekna+ versions add blindspot monitoring and rear cross- traffic alert (this warns you about cars that are about to cross your path when you’re backing out onto a road).
Emergency assist (a button that you can use to directly contact the emergency services) is standard on all versions, as are two Isofix mounting points.
