The Nissan Juke Is Good Value And Spacious
The car market right now is going through a tough time. It doesn’t have many gaps but Nissan is resolute to find them. The ‘crossover’ is comparatively new concept in the automobile industry and the Japanese company has decided that this is where it’s at. Nissan launched its crossover campaign in 2007 with the Qashqai and has recently launched a 4×4/supermini, the Nissan Juke. The Nissan Juke has a high riding position and there is a four wheel drive version on range topping petrol version. Realistically speaking, this car is aimed at young go-getters who want to be unique and own ‘something different’.
Nissan says it is aimed at young, adventurous and sporty men and women alike. Its unconventional design is sure to attract customers from all walks of life. Its biggest selling point is its price. At this low price you get a trendy car, a good engine and lots of kit. Hence it makes much more sense to buy a Ford Focus, which is a bit bigger or Ford Fiesta which is a bit smaller. There are four versions available in Juke; Visia, Acenta, Acenta Plus and Tekna. There are two engines to choose from: 1.6 litre petrol with 115bhp or 187bhp respectively. There is also a 1.5 litre diesel engine delivering 108bhp.
The Juke offers excellent front visibility and a good view of the road. The seats are superbly comfortable making the Juke easy to get in and out. Juke is definitely the comfiest in its class. It depends on how you view this car as there’s lots of front and rear leg and head room but the boot has limited space. The seats can be folded to make a larger flat loading area and for extra space under the boot floor. With the back seats up it has more boot space than a MINI, but less than a Peugeot 207 or Ford Fiesta.
If you regularly have two or three passengers travelling with you than this is the car for you, but if you are looking for a cargo car, its not for you. If you need lots of cup holders you’ll like the Juke, but if you want a car with lots of luggage capacity, search for an alternative. The Euro NCAP crash test rating specialists gave it a full five star rating making it among the best in its class. All variants of the Nissan Juke come with six airbags, anti whiplash headrests and brake assist and ISOFIX child seat points in the rear.
