Nissan Juke

(2019 - present)

The Nissan Juke is a small SUV/crossover that sits below the Qashqai in the Nissan range. The current model was launched in 2019 and is the second generation of Juke. Like the original model, it is built in Nissan’s factory in Sunderland.

The new Juke has a much more competitive Expert Rating than the old model, based on the 20 reviews we have analysed so far. This puts it in the top half of its field, although it is still some way behind the class leaders in the small SUV/crossover segment.

The Nissan Juke has received widespread praise for its smoother styling compared to the divisive original, as well as being much better to drive. However, despite the big step forward, the engine is considered weak and it is still not considered to be as well finished as the Volkswagen T-Cross or T-Roc models.
