2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test


2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Design Inspiration

March 02, 2011

Yeah, our long-term 2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD is a super urban-commuter, but its looks are controversial, to say the least.

Alfonso Albaisa, VP of Nissan Design Europe, breaks down the inspiration for the Juke's design and explains the target demographic, which I've been very curious about myself.

Albaisa said that the target demo is a 30-something active lifestyle guy with a love of motorbikes, dune buggies, and rally driving. Interesting.

And according to Albaisa, design influences include rally cars, motorbikes, the Nissan Z for the rear lamps, and the GT-R(!).

Whatever you think of the Juke, there's nothing on the road that looks like it, at least in The States.
