2017 Nissan Juke review: Our expert's take

The Cold Weather Package's heated cloth front seats and heated side mirrors are now included on the SV trim level.

I LOVE this car!

Even though it was not the car I had in mind, I completely fell in love with this choice. It has so many modern comforts and technology features that I’m still discovering them. Best of all, it is just so much fun to drive. I saw others saying this in reviews and now I understand what they meant!

Can’t believe I bought it!

This car fits me like a glove. 4 cylinder turbo for great pick up, all the things I wanted in a new car. Backup system, navigation, sunroof, heated seats. It’s more than I wanted and I love it!

OH YEA

The only complaint I have with this car. The heated seat buttons are under the center arm rest. Everything else is positive. extremely comfortable even on long trips, Has plenty of scoot. Never had a problem passing. It's always in the right gear which isn't the case for most automatics. Why they stopped making them for the US, is beyond my capacity.
