Expert Quotes:

styling that's two shakes away from robo-reptilian

mutt-ugly: the homely hound you adopt because it exudes quirkiness, promises friskiness and suggests an engaging personality.

The interior theme is “robobiotic,” says Nissan, meaning a fusion of organic and mechanical.
Car and Driver

bizarre mishmash of styling cues … It’s funky. It’s ugly. It’s funkly.
Inside Line

Living up to its name, the Nissan Juke zigs where the rest of the subcompact crossover market zags, and, depending on your point of view, either breaks free for the score or ends up behind the ball, wondering what happened.

The look of the Juke is all hips and bulges, swells and angles. It could even be called cartoonish. The tall, swooped fenders up front, the low-mounted headlights, blade-like turn signals, the predatory grille. Inside, it's more of the same with motorcycle-inspired gauges and shiny nylon upholstery.

But despite these odd choices on Nissan's part, there are many who love the Juke's look. It's irreverent, alternative, funky, and futuristic. There's an element of alien or insect organic inspiration throughout, at times edging up to superhero-like self-parody.

New for the 2013 Juke are three colors likely to make the offbeat design pop even more: Atomic Gold, Brilliant Silver, and Pearl White.

It's weird, it's small, it's sporty, and it's a Nissan. Consider us Juked.

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.
