Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Nissan Juke’s starting price looks very reasonable, and even the reasonably equipped Acenta trim undercuts SE trims on the Skoda Kamiq. As you move up the range, the poshest trims push up the price by thousands of pounds, launching the Juke into Volkswagen T-Roc territory.

Fuel economy and CO2 emissions are respectable if not class-leading – a Ford Puma with a mild-hybrid engine sets the standard for efficiency among small SUVs. The Juke is predicted to hold on to its value considerably better than a Citroen C3 Aircross, but the Skoda Kamiq and T-Roc are expected to suffer depreciation at a slower pace.

Reliability

The latest Juke didn't feature in our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey but Nissan as a brand performed woefully. Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer came joint 27th out of 30 manufacturers.

The Juke comes with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty as standard, although it can be extended at extra cost. That's pretty average, and beaten by Renault and Hyundai with their five-year warranties, and Kia's cover, which stretches to seven years.

Safety and security

Overview

The Juke is strong in some key areas, such as interior quality, safety and equipment levels, but there are more rounded choices in the small SUV class. The Skoda Kamiq is one, and noticeably better if you’re looking for space or comfort, while the excellent Ford Puma should be cheaper to run and far more exciting to drive.
