2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Is it Just the Lights?

February 17, 2011

So there I was again, standing in my backyard, studying the long-term car of the day. I was pondering if it was just the lighting arrangement that draws so much fire. I began equating it to one of my favorite motorcycles -- the Triumph Speed Triple -- which is immensely fun to ride and, for the most part, quite attractive. But the headlights always seemed to bug me (for 2011, they changed them).

My curiosity ran amok, and I brought the Juke into my shop...Photoshop, that is. Click through to see if my tweaks are an improvement.

My first order of business was to get rid of the lights and fill the gaps with more grille. Whoa...I like! As Riz and JDP commented, it's reminiscent of the old Camaro RS. James was lobbying for the return of hidden headlights. In this case, I agree with him.

Then I dropped in some headlights.

What do you think? Better? Worse?
