What Car? says...
The original Nissan Juke was a trailblazer, putting the high-riding style of an SUV within reach of buyers with modest budgets. This second-generation car takes the same approach, but adds some new elements to make it a better all-rounder.
Over the next few pages, we’ll explain what it does really well, uncover any areas where it lags behind the best small SUVs and tell you how it compares with its rivals, including the Ford Puma, Renault Captur, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc. We’ll also give you the lowdown on the best engine and trim to go for and any options you should consider adding.
If you decide to buy a Juke – or indeed a new car of any make and model – don't forget you could make a big saving on the list price by using our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a good place to find the best new small SUV deals.
More on the Nissan Juke
The latest Nissan Juke didn’t feature in our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey but the 2010-2019 Juke did badly, coming near the bottom of the small SUVs table. Nissan didn’t do particularly well either, finishing 27th out of the 30 car makers in the brands section of the survey. That puts it below Skoda and Volkswagen but above Ford. Read more here
No. There is currently only one engine available for the Nissan Juke, the 112bhp 1.0-litre DIG-T 114 petrol. There will not be a diesel option but Nissan might add hybrid engine choices in the not-too-distant future. Read more here
Our pick of the Nissan Juke range is the N-Connecta trim. That’s because, while it costs more than the entry-level Visia version, it comes with some extra features you’ll really appreciate, adding a smarter interior, built-in sat-nav, climate control and keyless start to an already fairly healthy list of standard goodies.

In Tekna trim, the Nissan Juke gets even more equipment than our favourite, N-Connecta. Tekna’s kit includes 19in alloy wheels, heated front seats, an upgraded Bose stereo system, adaptive cruise control and added safety features. It’s much more expensive, so unless you really want those extras, we wouldn’t recommend it. Read more here
The entry-level Nissan Juke Visia comes with a tiny monochrome screen, Bluetooth, DAB radio and a USB socket. If you upgrade to Acenta or any other trim, you get a more sophisticated 8.0in colour touchscreen, along with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring. It’s not a particularly sharp screen and there’s a fair delay every time you prod it to operate a function. Read more here
Boot space in the Nissan Juke is generous (422 litres) and offers you almost as much space as the Nissan Qashqai family SUV. We managed to fit six carry-on suitcases in the Juke, one less than in the Qashqai. The Juke’s boot is a handy square shape and has an adjustable floor so there’s no awkward step up to the rear seatbacks when they’re folded down. Read more here
