The Nissan Juke was one of the first in the small crossover category to go on sale in the UK, creating a new, in demand category in the car market. The small crossover section combines the higher driving position with the feel and handling of a modern hatchback.
The rest of the car manufacturers have been playing catch up with the gap in the market. Ford now has their challenger the Ford Ecosport, Renault has their take on the crossover called the Captur and Vauxhall have their own Mokka. The Juke is now the cheapest of them all and has already cemented itself in the market.
So What Comes as Standard? on the new nissan juke N-Connecta
Standard Equipment on the N-connecta include a six speaker stereo system with digital radio, bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, climate control, rear privacy glass, 17 inch alloy wheels, leather multifunction steering wheel and LED daytime running lights.
Any new Nissan Juke N-Connecta built from May 2016 onwards will come with a free upgrade. The usual cloth interior will be replaced with an artificial leather and suede trim. This will be standard across the N-Connecta range. Also the artificial leather centre armrest found on the Tekna, is included with no price increase.
Available with the N-Connecta is a set of packs that can be combined together to add extra features depending on your preference.
- Exterior pack adds coloured trims around the headlights, front and rear bumper finishers and wing mirror covers
- Exterior plus pack adds coloured trims around the headlights, front and rear bumper finishers, wing mirror covers and 18 inch colour coded alloy wheels
- Comfort pack adds an open air glass roof with interior blind
- Safety pack adds the Nissan around view monitor (360 degree view parking camera) Blind spot warning, lane departure warning and moving object detection.
The Juke can be ordered with a manual gearbox with any engine but if you’re after an automatic or Xtronic you’ll have to settle for the naturally aspirated 1.6 petrol 2WD or the 1.6 DiG-Turbo with four wheel drive. And if you’re after the economy of a diesel then it’s a 1.5 dCi. Here’s the full list
- 1.2 DiG-T Petrol Manual 115 BHP 49MPG
- 1.5 dCi Diesel Manual 110 BHP 71MPG
- 1.6 Petrol Manual 94 BHP 47 MPG
- 1.6 DiG-T Petrol Manual 190 BHP 39MPG

A special pearl effect Storm White paint is among the best. The cheaper options include the special solid Arctic white and a free solid colour Flame red.
The new NIssan Juke crossover comes with the maximum 5 star rating from Euro NCAP safety tests and scores an impressive 87 per cent for adult occupants. This is on par with the Renault Captur and Vauxhall Mokka but the Ford Ecoport only manages a four star rating.
Included with all new Nissans is the 3 year manufacturer’s warranty but the mileage limit is greater than the competition at 100,000 miles. 3 years roadside assistance is also included.
