2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Juke: Long Live Turbos

February 04, 2011

I have to agree with Kavanagh, the Juke is shockingly fun to drive. He focused on the suspension, which I agree is dead on, but I think the engine deserves plenty of credit too.

Even with a potentially soul sucking CVT, the little 1.6-liter four cylinder still launches this car from a stop with a shove. It builds power smoothly, stays composed at high rpm and even has decent pull down low. The only problem? It encourages a flat foot, so don't expect to see us getting anywhere near the EPA mileage ratings.
