2017 Nissan Juke Review

With highlights such as an available all-wheel drive, unique exterior/interior color customization, lively performance, and a sporty handling, the new 2017 Nissan Juke will have you seeing the inner beauty of Nissan’s feisty crossover/hatchback creation, however, it might be not be love at first sight.

Don’t expect any apologies from the Juke’s controversial styling, which is part and parcel of its appeal. And just like the previous model, the 2017 version also allows you to mix and match colors thanks to the new Color Studio program. It’s styling aside, the Juke returns with an even better on-road capability and is undoubtedly among the top cream of compact crossover segment.

Much of what makes it appealing lies under its hood. Underneath its hood is a fuel-efficient, healthy turbocharged engine that comes paired to an all-wheel drive system. It’s also able to vary power delivered between the rear and front axles as well as the right and left rear wheels for maximum traction via the genuine rear-axle torque-vectoring system.

Handling is optimized even when the road starts to curve thanks to the taut suspension system, and the body is also free of scrapes on rough roads as a result of the impressive seven-inch ground clearance.

Perhaps on the notable idiosyncrasy available on the Juke is its cramped interior space. The cargo volume isn’t ample either. So if you’ve have a bunch of kids who need every day hauling, the Juke is probably the last option you should consider.

Other options you should consider include Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, and the Jeep Renegade. The Renegade is a good option especially for anyone who values a sporty driving experience. At the end of the day, it all depends on your priorities. The Juke is particularly recommended for people who don’t mind a controversial and bold styling.
