2011 Nissan Juke: Stating the Obvious

April 07, 2011


First thing my girl said when she got into the Juke as "Sure is red!"

This past weekend was the first time I've ever been in our Juke. Yes, it's funky looking, and yes it's very red all over. Normally I'm not a big fan of Cute-Utes. But to my surprise I really enjoyed driving this ugly SUV.

Yeah, I said I think it's ugly. I don't think there is an argument about that.

But it's like an ugly dog that has a great character. Might not be cuddly, but it's a great little buddy.

I loved the turbo charged engine, I really liked the interior design with all the red, and I dug just how fun the Juke was to drive. Believe me, when there were four adults riding, the performance suffered. This is enjoyable with two adults max.

I see this more as a vehicle for the young and possibly childless, so the demands will be well met. The Juke is all about having fun and it delivers that in spades.
