2012 Nissan JUKE
The 2012 Nissan Juke has all the auto critics agreeing- it's definitely distinct. When Nissan combined a 188-horsepower,1.6-liter engine with a styling like no other, they produced a sporty subcompact that begs to be driven.
With a ready-to-pounce stance, muscular fender arches, and swoopy taillamps you're sure to be noticed wherever you drive it. The interior is just as stylized. It features tons of technology and a painted center console inspired by motorcycle designs. More like a coupe than a subcompact, the 2012 Nissan Juke is fast and handles extremely well, making it a blast to drive.
With the I-CON adjustable steering and transmission system, the setup can be varied from Normal to Sport to Eco mode. Whether you want to focus on fuel-economy or sporty turns, the Juke can help you do just that. A zingy styling doesn't mean the 2012 Nissan Juke is all wacky fun. It earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)'s Top Safety Pick award. This can be attributed to multiple airbags, traction and stability control, and anti-lock brakes. Tire-pressure monitors are standard on all trims, alerting the drive of low tire pressure with a honking horn.
The 2012 Nissan Juke comes nicely equipped and has even more options available. The base model, The 2012 Nissan Juke S, has 17-inch wheels, audio system with auxiliary jack and Bluetooth® connectivity, and power windows and locks.
The SV has more upgrades, featuring a moonroof, satellite radio, pushbutton start, and the I-CON system.
The highest upgrade is the SL with standard navigation on a LCD touchscreen. Leather seats, an upgraded stereo system and heated front seats are also provided on this top-of-the-line trim. A Sport Accessory Package, with a hip roof spoiler and exhaust finisher, and a Chrome Accessory Package are also available.
Intended to be more of an urban vehicle than a true off-road SUV, the 2013 Nissan Juke is a funky alternative to the boring every day commute
