Nissan’s Juke looks cool, though we’re not sure quite where it fits
25 Oct 2013
IT’S been a long time coming, but the truly weird Nissan Juke micro-crossover SUV is here in Australia at last, after much ‘umm-ing and ahh-ing’ from the company’s local arm.
See, the Juke launched in Europe around three years ago, and has gone on to be smash hit with buyers taken by its unusual looks and charm.
Nissan Australia is hoping for a replication here, and especially hopes to net the younger, style-savvy buyers that is has struggled to attract with its current range.
Priced around $22k, and featuring a unique selling point in the form of a hot turbocharged engine option further up the range, the Juke is bound to get some attention in both showrooms and car-parks.
But is it really worth more than a fleet of excellent, and generally more spacious, small passenger offerings such as the Mazda3, Volkswagen Golf and Kia Cerato on the market? And would you take a Juke ST-S turbo over a Mini Cooper, Renault Sport Clio or Mazda3 SP25?
