2013 Nissan Juke Safety

8.0
Safety
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.

The IIHS and the NHTSA don't see eye to eye on the 2013 Nissan Juke, but it does come with a strong set of standard safety equipment.

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.
