2011 Nissan Juke Overview.
The 2011 Nissan Juke is a fresh, small, sporty vehicle that was introduced in 2010 Geneva Auto Show. It is intended to offer a sportier alternative to the hatchbacks that seem to rule the small car segment. Nissan Juke is based on the Qazana concept that was introduced at last year’s Geneva Auto Show. The Juke’s styling is a mixture of inspirational objects gathered from the Nizzan 370Z’s headlights, a motorcycle gas tank and rally cars. The Juke’s appearance is aggressive; you’ll like it, or you won’t.
The Juke’s seating arrangement is quite comfy despite the Juke’s raked roofline and a little narrow frame. The rear seat is comfortable for the car’s size, but the Juke just isn’t designed for a jam-packed accommodation and a week’s worth of food. In addition, to make the most of the cargo space drivers must fold the rear seats, eliminating passenger space. Standard features for Juke consist of a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, iPod connectivity and a six-speaker audio system, making the Juke class competitive. Perhaps the coolest feature of the Juke’s sporty interior is the optional I-CON interface that changes labels for climate control and framework control electronically.
The Juke drives better than the test drivers expected, but they also state the Juke can be unstable at times. On dry pavement the Juke lacks grip at high speeds. The optional All-Wheel-Drive and Integrated Control (I-CON) systems is liked by reviewers as it maximizes stability and handling. The different systems alter the Nissan Juke’s responses and power-train settings for improved fuel-efficient driving, and add to the sportier feel.
Shoppers looking for a fashionable, small vehicle with an amount of practicality have several cars to choose from. With the introduction of the 2011 Nissan Juke, there's one more added to the line-up. Competing along with the Scion xB, Kia Soul, Mini Countryman and Nissan Cube, the Nissan Juke is a compact sports utility vehicle with ultra-modern styling and available all-wheel drive. The 2011 Nissan Juke starts at $18,960, so it fits between the Nissan Rogue and the Nissan Cube in Nissan's listings. While the Rogue has traditional compact SUV styling and the Cube is well portrayed by its name, the 2011 Nissan Juke has a blazed, curvaceous look that appeals to young shoppers who want to stand out.
The Juke comes with a three-year or 36,000-mile basic warranty. It also gets a five-year or 60,000-mile power-train warranty.
The warranty period starts either on the date of first retail sale, or the date the vehicle is first placed in service as an instructor, service loaner or company vehicle, whichever is earlier. Plus from that moment on, your Nissan Juke is looked after during the coverage period, not considering of whether you're the first owner or a subsequent owner.
