2011 Nissan Juke - 2011 Nissan Juke - Chris Woodruff Talks About Juke
Getting back to the car, the Juke has a Normal, Sport and Eco mode. Sport mode tightens up the steering and Eco mode lightens up the throttle response (among other things) to increase fuel efficiency. On the road, the large mirrors provide good visibility even with the fairly small window openings and raked back roof. While you won’t get away from the body roll that is inherent in a cross over the Juke feels well balanced and confident through corners. The boost from the turbo is noticeable whether in CVT or Sport mode with simulated gear changes. The one draw back, the Juke is sluggish off the line, something you wouldn’t notice in a twin scroll turbo setup. That said, the Juke still will do 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds according to Edmunds.com.
Overall, the Juke is a pleasant vehicle to drive and even four people can ride in the vehicle in comfort for short periods of time. So let’s review this quick snap shot of the 2011 Nissan Juke: quick, stable, comfortable and economical. Wait! Economical? Yes, the Juke ranges from just under $20K to somewhere around $25K fully loaded. Lump in the possibilities of navigation, a back-up camera, Rockford Fosgate sound system and all-wheel drive—oh and 27/32-mpg city/hwy—you a unique vehicle on the market.
Bottom line—if you are in the market for a sport cross or crossover in general then Juke should be on your list of prospective vehicles.
