Kia closed the gap to Nissan this year with the addition of a turbo-powered Soul that makes up to 200 horsepower.
In our limited drives with that car we can say that the Kia is just as brisk, but not as fun as the Juke.
Jeep's Renegade offers more off-road prowess than the Juke, but its 2.4-liter inline-4 just isn't as much fun to drive.
Honda's HR-V is the more practical alternative in the segment, and it's an option we'd argue many consider first in the class before driving others.
Subaru's Crosstrek is arguably the most versatile, although its let down by a small, slow engine.
Mazda's CX-3 rivals the Juke in drivability, but lacks some of the exterior style of the Nissan.
