Nissan Juke 2013 - Unique on the road
The 2013 Nissan Juke is in the subcompact sport utility vehicle restricted class. This is a vehicle that offers the increased space and elevated driving position of a utility vehicle, yet retains the proportions and handling of a small car. For many, this is the best of both worlds!
The Nissan Juke is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable vehicles on the road. Either people like it or dislike it, but there is no in-between. Especially the front end attracts the most attention with those big round lights and its thin protruding top lights incorporating the turn signals. Seen in profile, the whole thing is somewhat reminiscent of the Nissan Leaf. The rear section offers singular style lights and a steeply inclined bezel that adds a touch of dynamism and sportiness.
The Juke's small dimensions allow for effortless entry and exit in addition to offering a relatively low loading sill. On the other hand, on the road, we appreciate the elevated driving position and the increased visibility it provides.
The interior of the 2013 Nissan Juke is just as dynamic and original as the exterior body of the small utility. The front seats offer unexpected lateral support that provides perfect cornering support while the rear seats are spacious enough to accommodate two adults or 3 children comfortably. The steering wheel has a good grip and the ideal driving position is easy to find. Despite the 2013 Juke’s small size, all passengers enjoy good head and leg room.
The dashboard and the center console display an avant-garde style while the separation between the driver's seat and that of the passenger can be painted in red or in silver gray depending on the chosen exterior color. The effect is amazing and is sure to attract plenty of comments from friends and family. There are several small storage spaces throughout the cabin in addition to a trunk that can hold 297 liters with the rear seat in place and 1,017 liters with the seats folded flat.
Offered from $ 19,998, the Nissan Juke is available in either an SL or SV trim level and the buyer can choose between front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Bluetooth telephony system, Stability Control System (VDC), 17-inch aluminum alloy rims and leather-wrapped steering wheel are among the list of standard equipment. Heated seats, sunroof, smart key with push-button start as well as fog lights are part of the SV livery.
Regardless of version, the 2013 Juke is powered by a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine delivering 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. The latter offers more than honest performance in addition to being economical in gasoline. In fact, the Nissan Juke has an average fuel consumption of 6.8 liters per 100 kilometers in front-wheel drive configuration paired with the Xtronic CVT gearbox. Even with all-wheel drive, the average fuel consumption with the same transmission is 7.3 l / 100 km.
