2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test


2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Your Mileage May Vary

September 22, 2011

The EPA says our AWD 2011 Nissan Juke earns 27 combined mpg (see above). The four people using its "Your MPG" tool earn 24.5 mpg combined. Our experience, well, our experience is a little different.

In fact, a quick look back at our most recent fuel economy update shows the Juke earning a combined 22.4 mpg -- 4.6 mpg lower than the EPA combined rating. That's not insignificant. Nor, apparently, are our editor's right feet.

Here's the deal: I like driving the Juke because if you keep your foot in it (keep it on boost) it makes adequate power. Drive it off boost and, well, it drives like a 1.6-liter normally aspirated car that weighs 3,200 pounds. And it's slow.

So if you want to have some fun in your Juke, plan on buying more fuel.
