2022 Nissan Juke Hybrid verdict and specs

This new Nissan Juke Hybrid model gives the ever-popular small SUV a welcome efficiency boost, but is it enough to turn it into a class leader?...



One of the main reasons for choosing an electrified car is reduced running costs, and the Nissan Juke Hybrid's official average of 56.5mpg suggests it is indeed a more efficient choice than other Jukes. The trouble is, we saw only mid-40s during our drive, whereas the Toyota Yaris Cross managed 60.1mpg in our True MPG test.

There's also a big step up in price when you compare the Juke Hybrid with our preferred 1.0 114 N-Connecta manual Juke – more than £3000. And while the difference is less significant if you buy on PCP finance (£39 per month), that still means you'd need to travel around 13,000 miles per year before the hybrid model's greater fuel savings would pay off.

Finally, our preferred Icon version of the Toyota Yaris Cross can be had for considerably less than an entry-level N-Connecta Juke Hybrid. So, while it pays to be green sometimes, you have to fork out a lot for it with the Juke Hybrid.
