    Under The Spotlight: Nissan Juke

    Since 2010 Nissan has sold over half a million Jukes. We investigate what makes this model so successful!

Functionality is important with this crossover, helping the Juke thrive in a competitive SUV market. It’s full of personality, with the shape and imposing bumper designs making it stand out on the road for all the right reasons.

The boot has seen a 40% increase on the previous model, with a movable floor proving handy when transporting those larger items, including suitcases. 60/40 split folding seats increase the loading bay to pretty much 65% of the rear, providing a completely flat area. There’s plenty of door storage too and the low profile cabin means the Juke is easy to get both in and out of. The driver’s position is comfortable with multiple adjustment settings on both the seat and steering wheel.

Tech wise the dash controls are top of the range, class leading with the premium Acenta that offer pioneering insights. A swift 5.8” touchscreen SATNAV sits in the dash centre, offering both an intuitive and responsive system that helps to offer a series of routes for your selection. Bluetooth, USB, climate control and a handy reversing camera all add to the mix and in-drive experience, making the Juke responsive to your driving environment and needs. The Nissan Safety shield is cutting edge not only in the class but industry wide, providing blind spot warning, anti-skid technology and moving object detection, with the later cleverly complementing the Jukes all round driving visibility.

The current Juke range offers a variety of engine options, with the 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine proving a favourite. This is nippy around town and offers plenty of power on the motorway whilst also being extremely quiet and smooth. Handily it returns around 50mpg so it’s not too heavy on the wallet. The option to alternate between driving types (sport, eco and normal) change the weight of the steering wheel and throttle response depending on what you choose.

For more information on the Juke book a test drive at your local Nissan Weston-super-Mare dealership or pop in for a free brochure and chat.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
