Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There’s plenty of space for tall people in the front of the Nissan Juke, thanks to ample head room and seats that slide a long way back. If you need more space, the Mini Countryman is your best bet.
Storage space is nothing to write home about, but there’s a small cubby below the central armrest, two cupholders just in front of that, and a decent-sized glovebox.
There’s a good deal of leg room in the back of the Nissan Juke, and even six-footers won’t have to suffer their knees digging into the seat in front. Head room is merely acceptable, though, so if you’re long in the body or have particularly high hair, you might find the need to duck. Once again, the Mini Countryman is a roomier proposition.
Seat folding and flexibility
All versions of the Nissan Juke come with 60/40 split-folding rear seats – handy on those occasions when you need to carry lots of clobber, or something particularly long or bulky.
The Nissan Juke’s load bay is a usefully square shape, and all versions have a height-adjustable boot floor as standard. If you set it to its highest position, there’s virtually no lip at the boot entrance to get past and, when the rear seats are folded down, no step in the floor of the extended load area.
It might surprise you to hear that you can fit almost as much stuff in the boot of a Juke (we managed six carry-on suitcases below its load cover) as you can in Nissan's larger Qashqai. Nevertheless, you'll fit even more in the boot of the Skoda Kamiq, Volkswagen T-Cross and T-Roc, while the Ford Puma, with its extra well below the boot floor, takes up to eight cases.
Low price and roomy, but average to drive and not every versio...
Good to drive, roomy inside and fairly affordable to own...
The Citroen C3 Aircross is not without its strengths, but most...
Good on safety and equipment but there are much more appealing...
