Outward visibility is great (once you get used to looking past those alligator eyes sticking up out of the hood)

Visibility through the upright windshield is excellent
Inside Line


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't yet tested the 2012 Nissan Juke, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has--and it's given the pert little crossover its Top Safety Pick award. We'll update this review when more data is available from the federal agency.

The Juke is equipped with the usual, mandatory safety gear, including dual front, side and curtain airbags; and anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control. Tire-pressure monitors are standard as well, and in the Juke, when a tire is low, the horn sounds, alerting drivers.

Rearward visibility isn't as bad in the Juke as we expected. Despite short side windows and thick rear pillars, the view to the rear is okay, and the rear-seat headrests don't block much. The rear window isn't the biggest--it's shallow and arched--but the rearview mirror gives ample warning of what's behind you on the road. However, new safety gadgets like a rearview camera and blind-spot monitors aren't offered. 

Conclusion

The IIHS has good things to say about the 2012 Nissan Juke, but the Feds haven't checked in yet.

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.
