NISSAN Juke reviewNGC verdict 16.08.2010
Motorists want more fun and emotion from their cars, says Nissan. Nissan was proved correct with its Qashqai â€˜crossover.' Some 80% of buyers have never bought Nissans before. And with strong advance orders for its smaller brother, the Juke, also being built in Sunderland, this SUV blended with sports coupe looks set to be another winner. Despite the avant-garde styling the technology is proven stuff and so should leave Nissan's reputation for reliability unsullied. It's not a bad drive, petrol models are more pleasant than diesel. Second hand values should be good.

Compared to the most potent 134mph, 187bhp 1.6 litre turbo-petrol; the 1461cc, four-cylinder 108bhp turbo-diesel was rough and noisy and hampered by a notchy six-speed manual gearbox. Diesel version achieves 0-62mph in 11.2 seconds and has a 110mph top speed. Co2 rating is 134g/km. Normally aspirated 115bhp petrol engine is expected to be the best seller with near identical 0-62mph and top speed. All-wheel drive, as opposed to front-drive only, available with (CVT) continuously variable automatic transmission.
