Expert Quotes:

Four stars overall

Top Safety Pick

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

Though the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the 2013 Nissan Juke a Top Safety Pick, its highest honor, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) scores the Juke just three stars in frontal crash tests, and four stars overall.

The NHTSA does give the Juke a top mark of five stars in side-impact crashworthiness, however, and four stars in rollover resistance. The IIHS' Top Safety Pick designation carries with it top marks in front, rear, side, and rollover crash testing.

Standard safety equipment on the Juke includes the usual complement of gear: dual front airbags, side airbags, and side-curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; traction control and stability control; as well as tire-pressure monitors that sound the horn when a tire is low.

Driving the Juke, rearward visibility is better than you might expect based on its short side windows and thick rear pillars. The small rear window gives a good view of what's following on the road, but in close quarters, the new rearview monitor included in navigation-equipped SV models can be very helpful.

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.
