Can you name an SUV or a car for that matter that is being sold today that is as polarizing and unique to behold as the daring 2014 Nissan Juke? Even the bizarrowith its asymmetrical angles and oddball details doesn’t hold a candle to the unique set of thought that went into creating the Juke. But is it Nissan’s greatest SUV triumph or an epic fail that just so happens to also look like an endangered Amazonian river toad? Let’s have a closer look, shall we?
What We Love
- The Exterior Styling—So Sue Us
- The Quirky and Powerful 1.6 liter Turbocharged 188 horsepower 4-cylinder engine
- The Optional Manual Transmission May be the best in any SUV
What We Would Change
- Do Not Order the Midnight Edition Package unless it Suits the Exterior Color
- The Juke Does Not Look Good in Gold
- More Rear Legroom and Cargo Room Would Help
In order to get the best sense of what kind of vehicle the 2014 Nissan Juke really is, we tested two different flavors first off a front-wheel drive mid-level SV model with a six-speed manual transmission that really upped the fun to drive quotient. It also came in a rather sedate dark metallic color as the Juke looks best is hues that don’t overwhelm its already outgoing personality.
