Bottom Line

The turbocharged 2011 Nissan Juke gets high marks for being just plain fun, both for its wild design and engaging driving experience. With a base price ranging from $19,570 to $21,070, the Juke is an interesting and moderately priced new option, but its tight interior reduces some comfort and functionality. While reviewers concede that the Juke is not for everyone, frequently balking at their first impression, most ultimately overlook the Juke's drawbacks (in terms of practicality) and embrace the little crossover for its quirky appeal.

Unique styling

Critics agree on one thing: The Nissan Juke is one funky-looking hatchback. Autoblog.com reviewer Zach Bowman says the odd placement of indicator lamps above the fenders was puzzling at first, but he grew to love the quirky car, saying, "if people can welcome pug dogs into their homes, they should have no problem opening up the garage door for the 2011 Juke."
