After ten years of hardly any major changes, Nissan has completely revamped the Nissan Juke 2021. This popular and small SUV practically inaugurated the category in which it is located with the format we know today. Once again, the Japanese brand is committed to a model with personality and fun driving: these are the five things in which the Nissan Juke has improved and one in which it is worse.
That precursor character of the Nissan Juke 2021 has made it a fixture when considering the purchase of a small SUV. However, the rivals are more and more numerous and come stomping with interesting proposals. The Japanese brand responded with a second generation that has been a turning point and that, like everything, has its pros and cons.
1. The aesthetics of the Nissan Juke
The design (exterior and interior) of the Nissan Juke 2021 is one of its hallmarks and makes it an interesting option that also offers numerous customization options. It maintains some of the keys of the original model while emphasizing that SUV coupe feel to gain a presence on the asphalt.
2. Its habitability
The second generation of the Nissan Juke 2021 has corrected one of its main defects: a cabin that is not too spacious and impractical. It has achieved this by growing: it is now 4.21 meters long, 1.80 wide, 1.60 high, and has a wheelbase of 2.64 meters. Measures that give it extra space, which is particularly noticeable in the rear seats. To this must be added the improvement in the luggage compartment capacity, higher than that of some of its rivals: it offers 422 liters over the previous 354.
3. The Juke’s equipment
From the simplest level, the Nissan SUV is equipped with LED headlights, automatic lights, painted bumpers, 16-inch sheet metal wheels, four electric windows, central locking with remote control, air conditioning, multifunction steering wheel, a trip computer, sound system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB and four speakers… in exchange for 21,400 euros
4. Nissan Juke Enigma
And if we talk about equipment, we cannot forget one of the novelties of the second generation of the Nissan Juke, the Enigma finish, which is situated as an intermediate finish. It incorporates the two-tone bodywork, 19-inch alloy wheels, and parking control to the lower levels.
As standard, the small Nissan SUV comes with a good number of electronic aids in the active safety section: traffic signal reader, lane departure warning, pre-collision warning, automatic city braking, pedestrian detector, cruise control, and the ProPILOT system, which includes a combination of the active cruise control with the lane-keeping system.
6. The Nissan Juke 2021 engine
We finish with what the Nissan Juke 2021 is worst in: it’s mechanical offering. This boils down to just one option: a one-liter three-cylinder engine with 114 hp (previously 117) in combination with a simple front-axle drive system. The only choice that can be made in this section is the one referring to the transmission: a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch box.
