What used Nissan Juke hatchback will I get for my budget?
It is possible to buy a Nissan Juke for less than £5000 but the vast majority of these have more than 100,000 miles on the clock or are low-spec 1.6 petrol models. Up the budget to £6000 and there’s plenty of choice of non-turbo 1.6 petrols and 1.5 diesels with less than 60,000 miles. Or £8500 will see you in either a 1.6 DIG-T with 40,000 miles or a post-facelift 1.2 that has covered 20,000 miles.
Prices for the high-performance Nismo start at £11,000, which gets you a 2013 model with 30,000 miles on the clock.
How much does it cost to run a Nissan Juke hatchback?
The 1.5 dCi diesel engine is reasonably parsimonious, returning about 50mpg in normal driving, but the two 1.6 petrols can be quite thirsty. The range-topping turbocharged DIG-T can go as low as 25mpg if fitted with four-wheel drive and the CVT gearbox, while a non-turbocharged 1.6 petrol will return high-30s. The later 1.2 DIG-T engine is also a little disappointing in real-world driving conditions; don’t expect to see much more than 35mpg.
As far as road tax is concerned, it is the post-facelift 1.5 dCi that’s the best performer, costing just £20 per year to tax. At the other end of the scale is the four-wheel-drive 1.6 petrol CVT at £210, while the less powerful 1.6 petrol comes in at between £130 and £145. The 1.2 DIG-T costs £110 a year, as does the pre-facelift 1.6 diesel.
Nissan service costs for the Juke are average, with a minor service costing £189 or £209 (petrol and diesel respectively) and a major service a little more costly at £259 or £319.
