Nissan’s Juke – a tall-hatchback, quasi-crossover – arrived on the market in 2010 and left many scratching their heads. Seemingly designed with no other motive than to be strange, the Juke found many scathing critics for its looks and a few hardy fans who purchased the frog-faced CUVs.
According to The Truth About Cars,Nissan apparently plans to discontinue the Juke in North America by the 2018 model year and replace it with the Kicks. After maxing out in 2011 with 4,586 units sold in Canada, sales of the Juke have hovered around the 4,000 mark.
The Juke is offered with front- or all-wheel-drive, along with a manual transmission on FWD models. Nissan even offers a Nismo-tuned model that makes the Juke quicker, if not prettier.
Nissan’s Canadian division could not confirm whether or not the Juke will see a similar fate in Canada.
