Driving around Harvey, Louisiana, it is easy to spot the Nissan Juke with its crossover design featuring styling elements typically reserved for hatchbacks. The Color Studio even lets you completely customize the exterior colors of your Juke when you get it from Ray Brandt Nissan in case you want to stand out from the crowd.
Nissan Juke Engine and Performance
If the Juke’s appearance didn’t already set it apart from the competition, its fun-to-drive personality would. The 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine is engaging and responsive, and the Juke is one of the few crossovers to offer all-wheel drive, letting you tackle hills and tough terrain. The standard engine generates 188 horsepower along with a torque of 177 pound-feet, and there is an upgraded version of it on the Juke Nismo RS. These upgrades boost output to 215 horsepower and 210 pound-feet for front-wheel drive models and 211 horsepower and 184 pound-feet for all-wheel drive models.
Like many Nissan vehicles, the Juke comes standard with a continuously variable transmission to boost fuel economy on most trims. If you pick the SV, Nismo, or Nismo RS, you can swap out the CVT for a 6-speed manual. To get the best gas mileage from your Juke, pick a front-wheel drive model with the CVT and enjoy 30 mpg combined. Even the most powerful engine, that in the Nismo RS, gets a respectable 27 mpg* combined.
Nissan Juke Comfort and Convenience
To help with its abilities, all Juke models have at least 17-inch alloy wheels, and you can pick a model with the i-Con driver-configurable settings, fog lights, automatic headlights, a firmer suspension calibration, front sport seats, a limited-slip differential, and more.
All models come with great standard technology such as Bluetooth for phone and audio, a trip computer, a 5-inch color display, an iPod/USB interface, hands-free texting assistant, and 6 speakers. Those who want the latest technology can pick a model with navigation, various versions of NissanConnect, upgraded sound, and a 360-degree Around View camera.
