The Nissan Juke has really caught on with its innovative style and concept and looks like it will get off to a flying start. The Juke is being produced in Sunderland on the old Nissan Micra line and has already received over 1,200 advanced orders. There have been more than 1000 jobs created due to the production of the Juke and it is estimated that a further 2000 jobs will be created across Nissan in general as a result of the production of this model.
The Juke is a compact version of the Qashqai, already the fifth most popular car in the UK but it has a particular quirkiness to its design. Very busy, lost of curves and accents and has a feel of the vintage car about it. As visually appealing as the outside is, the interior is an example of understated elegance; its innovative central console and stylish interior. The mid-range models come equipped with the Nissan Dynamic Control Centre with push button technology and a touch screen that aims to make car entertainment as convenient as possible.
Nissan have fitted the Juke with a punchy 1.6 litre engine and with its 4X4 wheel drive it provides an excellent and agile performance. You can accelerate from zero to 60mph in less than 8.5 seconds and the car offers you 37.5mpg but does produce around 175g/km of CO2.
The OTR basic model comes in at 12,795 and you will find that there are still a lot of extras as standard, even at the entry level. Alloy wheels, six airbags, air-conditioning, ESP and remote locking. By laying out a little extra money you can quickly obtain the car of your dreams; with extras such as Bluetooth, dynamic dashboard and climate control making it well worth the additional money.
