The inside of the Juke isn’t quite as radical as the outside, but high specification models get a 5.8-inch touchscreen that adds a welcome air of modernity.
Buyers can choose from a range of engines including a 1.5-litre diesel that sips fuel and a 1.6-litre petrol that is quick but less economical.
Buyers can also choose to specify four-wheel drive for additional grip on slippery roads, but it uses more fuel than a two-wheel-drive version.
All Jukes come with equipment such as air conditioning, alloy wheels, and electric windows as standard.
It’s incredibly rare for mainstream manufacturers to release daring and risqué cars, so we applaud Nissan for making the Juke in the first place.
It is a compromised car, however, and the biggest drawbacks are the cramped rear seats and slightly cheap-feeling interior.
Nonetheless, if you are the sort of person who wants something a little different, you’ll find plenty to like about the Juke.
