The Voluptuous Nissan Juke
Theres nothing out there even remotely similar to the Nissan Juke, and more often than not, the appeal of its wayward body comes directly from its novelty. Aero-dynamicity is provided by strategically placed wells and curves that lend the Juke its interesting shape. The Juke is not only the most unique crossover on the market, but is by far the most voluptuous. Another appealing new trait of the Jukes style would be the hidden rear door handles that seamlessly blend into the side. The tucked away handles give a nicely compact coupe-like appearance without compromising any of the space or capability of a 4-door.
The interior evokes unexpected sportiness with bolstered bucket seats and a sport motorcycle inspired center console. The gauge design was likewise adapted from motorsport styling, possessing the simplicity and utility of an Italian sports bike. Standard features on the 2017 Juke include an AM/FM/CD with auxiliary input, Bluetooth, Intelligent Key with push-button start, a backup camera, a split-folding 60/40 rear seat, and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps and a text message assistant.
The Juke is acclaimed not only for its playful design but for its enjoyable drive as well. The robust 1.6 L turbocharged engine makes 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 Juke offers Intelligent All Wheel Drive for improved traction in inclement weather and precise cornering thanks to improved grip. For even more fun, all Jukes come with an ‘S’ mode that serves as a virtual gear shifting simulator. Standard Jukes get 6 gears, Nismos have 7 and the Juke RS has 8. The Nismo in particular has been coined as the Jukes ‘evil twin’ by Nissan, due to its wicked sport tuned suspension and super tight handling.
Nissan isn’t one to fall short on safety, and that’s evident across the lineup. The Juke comes standard with Tire Pressure Monitoring, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Anti-lock Braking, Electronic Brake force Distribution, and much more.
