The most innovative aspect of the Juke is how it lets the driver manage that power. Press a button, and you access one of three settings Eco, Normal and Sport, each governing the steering feel and throttle response. As you'd expect, Eco is the most easygoing, maximizing mileage. Sport definitely perks up the engine. Normal is in between. The electric boosted power steering has a good feel in any of the settings.
Cargo space is limited, too, for what is technically an SUV: There's 10.5 cubic feet of cargo space, or 35.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
2011 Nissan Juke review
Yes, the styling is polarizing, but it grew on me quickly. The Juke is a vehicle that is prepared to serve multiple masters, and handle all their requests with competence. Nissan is targeting the Juke Nike Uptempo Black White Grey at young drivers, but they may be surprised at the eventual range of customers who buy one.
Because of its shape resembling a scaled down version of the Infiniti FX there's no question that the Juke has at least the pretense of performance, but like the Infiniti, that swoopy shape isn't as efficient inside as other, boxier SUVs. Supposedly the Juke will fit three adults in the rear seat, but a lack of headroom and legroom means none will be happy.
Performance wise, the Juke is definitely a contender playful and competent but still easy on gasoline. The only engine offered is a 1.6 liter, turbocharged 4 cylinder, pumping out an impressive 188 horsepower. But still, fuel mileage is quite good. With the 6 speed manual, which we had in the test vehicle, the EPA rating is 24 mpg city, 31 highway. Get the automatic CVT continuously variable transmission and mileage increases to 27/32. Gone are the days where a manual transmission always beats an automatic in mileage.
Up front, though, there's plenty of room for two passengers. Seats are supportive and comfortable, despite being thin, with the rear shell carved out to try to make a little more legroom for back seat passengers. Instruments and controls are thoughtfully designed and easy to use. In a couple of areas the basic plastic door panels, the felt headliner you can see evidence of cost cutting, but the overall impression is that this is a vehicle that should cost more than the $18,960 base price.
The SL comes loaded with equipment, including leather upholstery, a big sunroof and a Rockford Fosgate sound system, a navigation system and back up camera. Remember, though, that even if you get the least expensive Juke, you Adidas White Tracksuit
Nissan claims it is a "Sport Cross," ostensibly meaning that it's a sport utility vehicle, with more emphasis on sport than utility. Based on Adidas Womens Pullover
one of Nissan's global vehicle platforms, the Juke slots in between Nissan's unconventional, functional little Cube, and the entirely conventional Rogue sport utility.
The Juke comes in three models: the base S, midlevel SV, and upscale SL. The test model was the SL, with the price starting at $23,050, before shipping. Front wheel drive is standard; All wheel drive, which the test car did not have, adds $1,500.
is a genuine surprise. Standard 17 inch alloy wheels with Goodyear tires are grippy and quiet. Brakes are four wheel disc. Shock absorbers are the premium twin tube KYB brand. All this, with the very short wheelbase, makes the Juke handle more like a sports car than an SUV. The ride is good on all but the worst pavement. It's an all purpose companion ready for whatever you ask it to do.

Judging from its initial unfocused advertising campaign, Nissan doesn't seem to know exactly what to do with the 2011 Juke. And after a week testing it, I see the problem: It doesn't fit into conventional categories.
