2013 Nissan Juke NISMO dirty rally mayhem machine
In this Podcast Quick Sip, Aaron discusses the 2013 Nissan Juke NISMO and
its dirt rally track potential versus the street racing theme it is usually
marketed with. As a sport crossover, we believe the Juke NISMO is
mis-marketed and should be pushed towards the dirt rally driver instead.
For a full review of the 2013 Juke NISMO, see
Nissan Juke Nismo review test Fahrbericht - Autogefühl Autoblog
The Nissan Juke Nismo is a very special one - Nismo represents the racing
department of Nissan in Japan and so the Nissan Juke Nismo has a very
sporty look - and also extra interior features.

2014 Nissan Juke NISMO (200hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p FULL HD)
The full Country Road and Autobahn Drive with the 2013/2014 Nissan Juke
Nismo with its 1.6 turbo (200hp; 250Nm)
FWD and 6-speed manual transmission. You can argue about the styling of the
regular Juke but I think this NISMO model doesn't look to bad. Everything
else, as engine, suspension and steering is very good, so the engineers at
Nissan knew what to do to give this car a sporty feel. Two things to
describe how this car feels are "lightness" and "pulltrhough". Since this
FWD version only weighs 1.300 kg and gear ratio is short you can really
irritate some much more potent cars on the Autobahn. In everything to 160
km/h this car is really quick, almost Mini-like. The interior quality is a
improvement to the "standard" Juke as well, since many parts are wrapped in
alcantara, which does feel good. I am looking forward to hear your COMMENTS

Nissan Juke Nismo roadtest (English Subtitled)
De nieuwe Juke Nismo moet Nederland klaar stomen voor Nissans sportieve
submerk Nismo. Wij mochten alvast even aan de opgepepte grapjas snuffelen,
en dan blijkt-ie serieuzer dan jij vast verwachtte...
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
