    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.
