2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Crash Tests Plus Video
March 04, 2011
When I see a car wreck out on the roads it usually makes me second guess my personal choices in transportation. Between a 54-year-old car, a Lotus that's glued together and a few motorcycles, I think responders would be more likely to use a wet/dry vacuum rather than the jaws of life to extricate me. Zipping around in the Juke, however, gave me a little comfort.
The Juke hasn't been crash tested by NHTSA or the IIHS yet -- or at least, the results aren't posted yet. The Euro NCAP results are in, though, and the Juke received a top five-star rating. Oh how I love slo-mo crash videos.
Not bad, right? It's certainly a lot better than these tests:
That should give you something to think about when renting a car overseas.
