2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Separated at Birth?

November 16, 2011

There are two gorgeous auto-related artifacts at the design show, "Living in a Modern Way," at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art: A 1936 Airstream Clipper trailer and a 1963 Studebaker Avanti. I want them both.

The work of art that caught our eye at the museum last weekend, however, wasn't a car image per se. It was an element of a bronze sculpture installation, "Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads" by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. But if you look at our Juke from a certain angle, you can see a certain resemblance (hit the jump for the reveal).

As a 2011, the Juke belongs to the Year of the Rabbit. But it sure looks like something from the Year of the Rat to me. Distinctly rodential, but endearing.
