The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Juke is part rambunctious rally-racer and part defiantly different crossover—and it adds up to a vehicle that you'll have some strong feelings about, one way or the other. The 2015 Volkswagen Beetle offers plenty of powertrain choice and decent practicality in a retro-leaning package.
