we saw a measly 22 mpg combined.

What it doesn't deliver is good mileage for a small car.
USA Today

the Juke's EPA fuel economy of 27 city/32 highway mpg is a solid showing.
Inside Line


The Juke's main drawback is its startlingly low fuel efficiency. While the EPA rated our CVT all-wheel-drive Juke was rated at 25 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, most reviews we've seen logged 22 mpg or less, even with long-distance highway cruising included. That would be low for a mid-size sedan, let alone a subcompact hatchback.

Reviewers aren't the only ones who are dismayed by the Juke's mileage. Owner forums carry a steady drumbeat of complaints of mileage remaining in the low 20-mpg range regardless of how it's driven.

The low mileage translates to a full-tank range of only around 300 miles, with the low-fuel warning light going on well before that. Most cars will usually go longer on a single tank than passengers' bladders will permit, so the Juke's short range is a shock. We've debated giving it an even lower score of 6, but for now, will give a little more standing to the EPA's official test numbers.

The Juke is not offered with any alternative powertrains, such as a hybrid or a diesel.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Juke’s gas mileage is low enough to shock both reviewers and new owners.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
