2013 annd 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo Review and Road Test

Let's get one thing sorted. The picture above is not, I repeat not, the
Juke that Nissan has been teasing. Instead, this is the Nismo treated Juke
we saw at the Chicago Auto Show in February. If you're disappointed, or if
the unusual confluence of shapes that is the Juke has made you throw up a
little in your mouth, don't watch.
Calling the Juke's styling "not everyone's cup of tea" (as one person I met
put it) or even "polarizing" hardly begins to describe what's going on
here. My week with Nissan's smallest crossover in America was filled with
awkward stares, gaping mouths and looks of revulsion. But that's not the
whole story. For every 10 people that wanted to run the Juke out-of-town
like villagers wielding pitchforks, there were two or three that thought it
was fantastic looking. No, cross that, they wanted to bear the Juke's
children. That's how far they went. This makes the Juke the most polarizing
car design I have seen. Yes, I'm including the unholy Aztec and Rendezvous.
However you feel about the Juke's design, you have to admit it took some
brass balls to design it, produce it, and then keep selling it.
Because the base Juke wears a starting MSRP of $18,990, my expectations
were low. If you keep your expectations at a similarly realistic level,
you'll be pleasantly surprised. For $22,990 the Nismo version adds heavily
bolstered Alcantara sport seats, a leather and Alcantara wrapped steering
wheel, center arm rest, red tachometer, plenty of Nismo badges and
red-stitching galore. Unfortunately, the standard hard plastic dashboard
and the world's least attractive headliner remain. Seriously, this has to
be the same material the trunk liner in a Versa is crafted from, how much
would it have cost for something out of the Altima? On the flip side, you
have to keep reminding yourself that 27-large is as expensive as any Juke
gets and the Nismo tops out at $26,460 with navigation, the CVT and AWD.
That's well below the average new car transaction price in America.
The Alcantara thrones are some of the most attractive (and best bolstered)
seats you can find for under $30,000, but they still ride on the same 6-way
manual driver's and 4-way passenger's seat frames as the regular Juke. This
means the range of motion is limited and lumbar support is non-existent.
Still, one must have perspective and you'll find the same situation in most
cars this price. I was disappointed to find that the Juke's steering wheel
doesn't telescope making it hard for me to find an idea driving position.
Before the Juke arrived I had spent a week in the 2013 BMW X6M (our reviews
are obviously out of order). Having the Nismo and an X6M back to back may
sound like a real let down, but there's another side. Obviously the Juke
doesn't handle or accelerate like an M, but there is something of the
personality that struck me. No, I'm not just talking about the X6 being
similarly polarizing in the style department, I'm talking on the road
personality. They are similarly "eager." In this way, the Juke reminded me
of a small dog that thinks it's a big dog. It even has a chihuahua's eyes.
Is that good or bad? Good seeing as the Juke costs about 1/4th the price. I
managed a 7.45 second 0-60 dash in the 6-speed manual model, let's just say
the X6M didn't get there in 1/4th the time.
It gets a bit more complicated. You see, the Juke is two kinds of animal.
If you get the 6-speed manual transmission you get plenty of torque steer,
slick shifts and a more engaging ride. (And for some reason torque steer
makes me smile when it's on a small-scale like this.) If you get the AWD
Nismo, you're stuck with Nissan's CVT. I'm no CVT hater but even I have to
admit the CVT dulls the Juke's personality. On the flip side, the torque
vectoring AWD system makes the CVT/AWD Nismo the faster car on the track by a reasonable
margin. If you have an oddly shaped place in your heart for Nissan's
over-styled crossover, you have a difficult decision on your hands. Either
way the Juke is destined to be one of the rarer vehicles on American roads
and I get the impression that's just how lovers and haters of the Juke like
2012 Nissan Juke Test Drive & Crossover Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/juke/2012/?id=32972 2012 Nissan Juke Test
Drive - Nissan wanted to bring a unique and stylish car to the market in
order to take on the other compacts like the Scion xB and the Mini Cooper.
The 2012 Nissan Juke is a sporty turbocharged crossover that is available in both
2WD and AWD. The Juke has a base price of $19,770 and comes with a 1.6
liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy figures are excellent as the Juke gets 25 MPG in the
city and 31 MPG on the highway.
The interior of the 2012 Nissan Juke is all about sportiness and comfort.
The steering wheel is the same at the Nissan 370z sports car. The Juke is
small but can seat up to 5 adults. If you are looking for a cool little
Crossover that is under $20k and provides good performance, stands out from
the crowd, and gets great fuel economy; than the 2012 Nissan Juke is the
right car for you!
