Depending on whom you ask, Nissan's Juke is either fun and cute or uncomfortable and ugly. In his review, Cars.com's Kelsey Mays took a look at the editorial staff's love/hate relationship with Nissan's compact crossover and his "praise runs thin."
The 2013 Nissan Juke comes in S, SV, SL and sported-up NISMO trims in front- and all-wheel drive. Standard on all is a zippy, turbocharged 188-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, bumped up to 197-hp in NISMO models. Transmissions include a six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic.
Base prices start at $19,780; we tested a CVT-equipped SL all-wheel-drive model that started at $26,780. Extras like floormats, a center arm rest and sport package (rear roof spoiler, 17-inch alloy wheels and a stainless-steel exhaust finisher) brought the as-tested price to $28,555 (all prices include a $790 destination fee).
