2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: I-CON Drive Select
February 15, 2011
Our long-term 2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD is equipped with a customizable drive mode selector.
Dubbed I-CON (for Integrated Control) the driver can choose settings for throttle response, CVT transmission, steering, and even HVAC. These are grouped into Normal, Sport, or Eco modes. This is the first time I've seen an adjustable drive mode incorporate the HVAC.
The video from Nissan USA will break it down nicely. During my brief drive, I noticed a discernable difference between modes, particularly the throttle reponse.
And even in Eco mode the Juke is a quick, urban commuter. The Juke is not genius, but it's quite good.
