The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Scant room and lousy gas mileage probably don't even matter--if you're into the 2012 Nissan Juke's crazy styling, you'll probably love its zingy powertrain and its dino-skin cockpit. The name rings true: this Kia has a Soul, with fun road manners and tall-wagon practicality baked into its kicky shape.
