2012 Nissan Juke (continued)

Summary

2012 Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke is a cross between a sporty compact and a tiny SUV. Juke is charming, unique and engaging, and it accelerates in lively fashion. Its ride quality can be a little disconcerting, depending on where you drive. If mileage is a crucial consideration, a buyer can do better for less. The Juke will play well with those who put a premium on shout-out styling and visceral excitement. Those who put a premium on refinement and smooth ride might look elsewhere.

Sam Moses reported from Vancouver, British Columbia; with J.P. Vettraino reporting from Detroit.
