The Juke hits its own stride in the market, and there are very few rivals that offer anything close to its blend of style and personality.
The Kia Soul is probably the closest to the Juke in spirit, but it isn't nearly as funky, and the Soul is far less of a niche model--more a very upright small wagon.
The Hyundai Veloster is closest in general design quirkiness, with its assymmetrical three-door design and blacked out pillars.
Honda's Fit is more flexible in passenger and cargo use, but far less impressive at the curb.
We'd also put both the Mazda 2 and Mazda 3 in contention.
The Mazda 2 is a very frugal small hatchback that will essentially blend into the crowd but is surprisingly fun to drive.
Meanwhile the Mazda3 has been redesigned for 2014 and has made some major advances in refinement.
