Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s plenty of space for tall people in the front of the Juke, thanks to ample head room and seats that slide a long way back.

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.

Rear space

There’s plenty of leg room in the back; even six-footers won’t have to suffer their knees digging into the seat in front. Head room is merely acceptable, though. If you’re long in the body or have a particularly wacky hairstyle, you might find you need to duck. 

The Juke also feels a little more claustrophobic in the back than the biggest small SUVs, including the Skoda Kamiq and VW T-Roc, because of its tapering windowline.

Seat folding and flexibility

All versions of the 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 rear seats don’t slide back and forth like they do in the Volkswagen T-Cross, but that’s a rare feature in the small SUV class and its absence is not something many buyers will see as a deal-breaker.

Boot space

The Juke’s load bay is usefully square in shape, and all versions have a height-adjustable boot floor as standard. Set this to its highest position and there’s virtually no lip at the boot entrance and, when the rear seats are folded down, no step in the floor of the extended load area.

It also might surprise you to hear that you can fit almost as much stuff in the boot of a Juke as you can in Nissan's larger Qashqai. Nevertheless, you'll fit even more in the boot of a Skoda Kamiq, VW Cross or VW T-Roc.
