Expert Quotes:

Base guise does net buyers an iPod interface, though navigating the menu structure via the controls on the dash and steering wheel is nothing short of confounding.

At no time does the Juke's cabin seem like a stripper subcompact
Automobile


The Nissan Juke has a better than usual list of standard features, but piling on the options can push the pricetag uncomfortably high for a subcompact.

The base Juke S comes with the four-cylinder/CVT drivetrain; 17-inch wheels; an AM/FM/CD audio system with an auxiliary jack and Bluetooth connectivity; power windows, locks and mirrors; remote keyless entry; and a 60/40 split rear seatback.

Next up the ladder is the Juke SV, which adds a moonroof; satellite radio; pushbutton start; the user-selectable I-CON system with automatic temperature control; and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

On the top Juke SL, there's a standard navigation system with a small 5-inch LCD touchscreen and real-time traffic; a Rockford Fosgate subwoofer and six speakers; a USB port; leather seats, heated in front; automatic headlights; and fog lights.

On the options list are the Juke's torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, and on more basic models, the navigation system and USB port, which during our last test wouldn't control an iPhone, leaving us to resort to using the aux jack.

The nav system's small screen is a minus, but the system itself gets high marks for intuitive controls. Maps are stored on a space-saving SD card, too. Zooming to map intersections is one of its nice details. On the audio side, the nav/sound system displays all the satellite-radio information, and provides clean sound.

Prices can mount as you add options, but we'd select those--and probably skip things like the illuminated front sill plates that spell out "JUKE" whenever the door is open. It's a few hundred bucks, money probably spent better on gas for the thirsty Juke.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Nissan Juke comes nicely equipped, and offers some fun options, but can top out at nearly $25,000.

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.
