Reviews Word on the street for the Nissan JUKE

Given the Juke's relatively compact size and light weight, the engine actually feels quite punchy, especially when paired with the six-speed manual transmission.

Nissan also tuned the NISMO Juke to make 197 hp and 184 pounds-feet of torque, versus the standard Juke's 188 hp and 177 pounds-feet of torque.

The 2013 Nissan Juke SUV's taut suspension is adept in minimizing body roll and lean, with only a minimal trade-off in the areas of ride comfort.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


That would make it the enthusiast's choice despite the added weight, complexity, and cost-except that it means you can't get the six-speed manual transmission at all, as it's only available in front-drive Jukes.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
Nissan has programmed some steps into the CVT's function to make it feel a bit more like a traditional automatic transmission, but the enthusiast won't like it any more for that.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
The standard drivetrain provides snappy acceleration, but the optional continuously variable automatic transmission removes some of the fun.

Front-drive SV, SL and NISMO models come standard with a six-speed manual.
by cars.com (Jul, 2013)
Optional extras include torque-vectoring all-wheel drive (though if you choose AWD, you'll have to take the CVT transmission that comes with it); on lower-tier models, navigation; USB input; and upgraded stereo options.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
Good standard features and plenty of available upgrades fit the futuristic 2013 Nissan Juke's image, but beware, the price can rise rapidly with lots of add-ons.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)


The relatively light weight, rapid steering, and firm suspension combine with the advanced engine to give the Juke a sporty feel-but if you're looking for more crossover-like compliance in its ride, you're just out of luck.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
All-wheel-drive Jukes have a four-wheel-independent suspension, which improves — in theory — on the front-drive Juke's independent front and semi-independent, torsion-beam rear.
by cars.com (Jul, 2013)
The all-wheel drive proactively sends more power toward the outside rear wheels to sharpen midcorner handling and diminish understeer — similar to what BMW's xDrive and Acura's Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive systems do.
by cars.com (Jul, 2013)


A NISMO Juke from Nissan's motorsports division joins the lineup for 2013; it makes 9 extra horsepower and comes with a number of other performance modifications.
by cars.com (Jul, 2013)
The engine powering the 2013 Nissan Juke is a 1.6-liter turbocharged in-line four-cylinder, rated at 188 horsepower.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
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.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)


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.
by The Car Connection (Jun, 2013)
The standard Bluetooth works your phone, but it doesn't stream audio.
by cars.com (Jul, 2013)
The 2013 Juke is packed with a solid selection of standard and available entertainment and other gear, plus a smattering of available appearance enhancements, but piling on the options can quickly push the Juke's price out of bargain territory.
