Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019) Review
Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019) At A Glance
Radical looks turn heads. Appealing mix between a hatch and an SUV. Seats four in comfort. Impressive direct injected 190PS 1.6-litre turbo drives well.
Small Boot. Gloomy back seats. Standard 1.6 petrol noisy on motorway. High number of CVT transmission failures. 4WD dropped in 2014 revamp. DPF problems common on 1.5 dCi. 1.2 DIG-T engine oil sensitive. Must have oil service at least every 12,000 miles.
The quirky and unusual Juke has proved a huge success and become one of the most popular crossovers around. So what's the secret? Well the looks make a big difference. It's unlike anything else on the road with it's striking front end and angular design.
But the good news is that this isn't all form over function. The Juke not only looks great, it's also comfortable inside, good to drive and reasonably practical too. It's described by Nissan as a cross between a compact SUV and a sports car. So it looks the part but still gives you good versatility when you need it.
The interior is sporty and unique, featuring the clever Nissan Dynamic Control System on top models which switches from climate control to a drive control function. There's also a motorcycle fuel tank-inspired central console, as well as plenty of scope for personalising the cabin with different colour trims and finishes.
It drives well with responsive steering although the ride is a touch on the bouncy side as is often the case with smaller crossovers. The Juke was revised in 2014 and although it doesn't look very different on the outside there are some significant changes under the skin.
The suspensions and steering have been revised so the Juke is now far better when it comes to ride quality. The steering is well weighted and there’s little in the way of body roll through corners even when you push on. It's also far more refined and quieter at speed.
The 2014 facelift also saw the introduction of a new 1.2 DIG-T engine. It suits the Juke perfectly thanks to its peppy nature and decent low down torque while official economy is more than 50mpg. The rest of the engine range has been tweaked to be more economical including the good 1.5 dCi diesel although the 1.6 non turbo petrol engine is disappointing and best avoided.

Reviews for Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019)'s top 3 rivals
On the inside of an Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019)
The unusual exterior look of the Juke is continues inside where it's unlike anything else, even from the Nissan range. The main thing that grabs your attention is the central console which is designed to resemble a motorcycle fuel tank and is finished in high gloss paint with a variety of colours available.
The central stack is another stylish feature, especially on Acenta and Tekna models which have the Nissan Dynamic Control System. This cleverly switches between the climate control functions and the dynamic drive settings, changing the display and button markings depending on how it's being used.
In the D-Mode, the buttons change to Normal, Sport and Eco driving modes whle the display shows engine and torque information. The high gloss finish gives the dash a sporty and modern look and it's a feature that's not found on any other car interior and goes with the Juke's ultra-modern feel.
The two instrument dials are easy to read and there's a central digital display which shows the trip computer while the driving position is pretty much spot-on too. It's raised enough to give a good view out but you still feel like you're driving a normal hatchback.The steering adjusts for height but annoyingly not for reach, but it isn't too much of a problem, even for taller drivers.
There are some criticisms though. While much of the interior looks very modern, some switches, like the electric mirror controls which are stuck down by the driver's right knee, feel dated and a little cheap. But that aside it's a very comfortable four-seater with plenty of room, even for taller passengers in the back with decent head room.
It's a shame the rear windows are so small because while it's no doubt good the exterior styling, it does mean it's quite gloomy in the back.
Boot space isn't brilliant at 240 litres of luggage room (slightly less than a MINI Clubman) although there is an underfloor storage area on all models except the 4WD which adds a further 11 litres. Still, the boot opens wide and it's easy to load larger items in and Nissan assures us it will carry a maximum size suitcase.
The rear seats split 60/40 (standard on all models) which expands the total boot space to 550 litres. Folding the seats down is simple too as they collapse in one single movement, creating a flat floor in the process.
Standard equipment from launch (September 2010):
Visia is the entry-level trim and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, ESP, six airbags, sports seats, manual air conditioning, a single CD stereo with an aux-in socket, remote central locking, front and rear electric windows, rear Isofix child seat mounting points and 60/40 split rear seats.
Acenta models get a multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth, a USB port, cruise control, front fog lights, the Dynamic Control System, 17-inch 'Elegance' alloy wheels, body coloured door handles and mirrors, automatic air conditioning, chrome interior door handles plus a leather steering wheel and gear lever.
Tekna is the top trim level and adds the Nissan Connect system, a colour reversing camera, rain sensitive wipers, automatic lights, Intelligent Key with engine start button, electric folding mirrors, tinted privacy glass, 17-inch 'Sport' alloy wheels and grey or red leather upholstery.

Driving Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019)
What's the Nissan Juke (2010 – 2019) like to drive?
- Engines range from 1.2 DIG-T to 1.6 DIG-T Nismo RS Automatic 4WD
- Readers report Real MPG to be between 23–64 mpg
There isn't a wide choice of engines in the Juke line-up but the ones available suit this funky crossover well. However if you want the four-wheel drive Juke it's only available with the top of range 1.6-litre DiG-T petrol engine which develops 190PS along with 240Nm of torque.
It uses a turbocharger and direct-injection to give the kind of performance you'd expect from a 2.5-litre engine, but economy is poor, even given the performance, and it averages a claimed 37.2mpg with emissions high at 175g/km of CO2.
What's surprising is that it the 4WD model only comes with a CVT automatic gearbox. Apparently the sense in making it a CVT is that it will last longer and should mean it's extremely safe in snowy and icy winter conditions.
It's not especially sporty on the move and doesn't feel amazingly quick either, but it put it in Sport mode and it hustles along country lanes well and pulls very well when joining a motorway or dual carriageway.
The DIG-T engine is available with a six-speed manual gearbox with 2WD and as you'd expect is more economical than the 4WD version with a claimed economy of 40.9mpg and emissions of 159g/km.
Then there's the standard 1.6-litre petrol model that does without any fancy turbochargers but still develops 117PS and averages a claimed 44.8mpg on average with emissions of 147g/km of CO2. It gets a five-speed gearbox with a nice positive shift.
For those doing longer journeys the 1.5 dCi makes the most sense. That's mainly down to its fuel economy figure of 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 134g/km but also down to its strong in-gear pulling power thanks to 240Nm of torque which helps compensate for the modest 110PS output and means it's great for effortless motorway driving.
17-inch wheels with 215/55 R17 tyres are the lowest profile available on the Juke and combined with reasonably long travel suspension and good seats, the ride quality is pretty good. The Juke still handles well in corners with decent steering and well controlled body roll. Grip levels are good too and although it's not thrilling to drive, it's undemanding and comfortable.
The two-wheel drive models can sometimes struggle to find front end grip in the wet, when accelerating quickly away from junctions, but the 4WD model is incredibly stable and feels planted to the road.
In 2014 the Juke was revised with some significant changes under the skin. The ride quality is much improved and the Juke is far more refined than before, making it more relaxing on longer journeys.
Nissan added a 1.2 DIG-T engine and it's the best model in the range. It’s a versatile engine thanks to a good spread of torque, which peaks at 190Nm. The 1.2 is at home in town or on the motorway, although for higher speed overtakes and twisting routes you’ll need to change down a gear or two. The gear change is slick and precise though, so that’s no hardship even on a spirited drive.
Emissions are 129g/km which is adequate for a petrol-powered model with 115PS, while official economy is 50.4mpg.
Nissan has continued the rest of the engine range alongside the new 1.2, meaning there is a 110PS 1.5-litre diesel, a 94PS 1.6-litre petrol, a 117PS 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol with 190PS. These have undergone minor tweaks to lower emissions and improve fuel economy slightly.
It might be a high-riding crossover, but the Juke is still good fun. The steering is well weighted and there’s little in the way of body roll through corners even when you push on. There is plenty of grip, so for enthusiastic drivers there’s a lot to like. That said, Nissan has worked on the suspension to make it more accommodating so at low speeds the updated Juke rides fairly well over potholes and bumps.

19-2-2016: TECHNICAL BULLETIN issued concerning oil consumption of HRA2DDT ENGINES fitted to Alliance J11, C13 and F15 models. <<If the customer monitors their vehicle regularly they may notice the engine oil level reducing. Other symptoms the customer may experience include warning light on the combi-meter, hesitation, excessive engine noise or smoke. BACKGROUND: Under a certain driving pattern the oil consumption of the HRA2DDT engine may increase significantly causing the oil level kn the engine to be reduced. Yje increased oil consumption is causded by low inlet manifold pressure, which, in combination with high vacuum and the flutter of the 2nd piston ring allows oil to be drawn into the cylinder and burned. A new engine calibration has been developed in order to increase the intake manifold pressure at low speed/low load conditions in order to minimize the oil consumption.>> AFFECTED VEHICLES: J11 FROM SJN*E*J11U1000001 TO SJN*E*J11U11572966; C13 FROM VSK*D*C13U0000001 TO VSKDDAC13U0039320; F15 FROM SJN*E*F15U7000001 TO SJN*E*F15U7210197. FLOW CHART PROCEDURE: Please complete diagnosis as indicated in the flow chart and replace bare/short engines only in cases that the unit cannot be repaired. In all other cases please replace the failed parts. Flow chart starts: Top up oil level as necessary. Reprogram using Global reprogramming patch. Check engine for noise. No noise present, check oil level after 3,000 miles. If between MAX and MIN, no further action. If below MIN, replace piston ring set. If noise present, Perform Compression Test. If difference between highest to lowest values <25%, check timing chain tensioner and top of chain cover for wear marks. If wear is confirmed, replace chain. Wear not present, locate source of noise and replace failed parts. If difference between highest to lowest values >25%, inspect cylinder head and block. If cylinder walls scored, replace short engine. If evidence of damage or overheating is found on the cylinder head and on the block, replace bare engine.

Juke R unveiled
Just two versions of the Nissan Juke-R are being created, one in each of left-hand and right-hand drive. The cars have been developed by Nissan and are being built by leading motorsports outfit RML with input from Nissan Technology Centre for Europe (NTC-E). Testing of the car will begin in November.
At the heart of Nissan Juke-R will be the GT-R's V6 turbo-charged engine that produces an incredible 480bhp. Fitting this into the space usually taken by Juke's 1.6-litre engine is a big challenge for the team. Not only do they have to build the car around the engine but also find space to house all the cooling systems that it needs to perform.
Juke Shiro introduced
Externally, Shiro can be identified by its stylish dark grey 17-inch alloy wheels, the satin silver finish to the door handles and mirror caps plus a gloss black finish to the B-pillar. Although available in any of the colours offered on Juke models, Shiro does have one additional unique hue in its palette: Nightshade, a sophisticated deep aubergine colour.
Shiro builds on the top-of-the-range Tekna grade with prices starting from £17,695. It is available with all three engine choices – a 110PS 1.5-litre dCi; 117PS normally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol; and the range-topping turbocharged direct injection petrol 1.6-litre DIG-T with 190PS. A 4x4 version and CVT automatics are also available.
Juke with Ministry of Sound launched
Can be specified with any engine and transmission in the current Juke range, and is offered with a number of special design and technology features that make it a unique and innovative addition to the line-up.
Mirroring the Ministry of Sound’s famous black and white logo, the limited edition Juke will be available to order in Metallic Black or Solid White. All models come equipped with standard 17-inch white alloy wheels, white door handles and white mirror caps. To further enhance the bold look, the B-pillar is finished in high-gloss black, while a unique Ministry of Sound badge completes the external design package.
Inside, the Juke with Ministry of Sound features a striking white centre console, white door trims and white stitching on the leather seats, steering wheel and gear gaiter. The cabin also features an iPod cradle that gives occupants the perfect set-up for choosing their music on the move.
All Juke with Ministry of Sound buyers will also receive an exclusive Music Pack designed to enhance their enjoyment of the car. The pack includes a white 8GB Apple iPod touch, pre-loaded with Nissan and Ministry of Sound video and photo content, and engraved on the rear with Nissan Juke and Ministry of Sound logos. An innovative self-healing iPod case that features Nissan’s Scratch Shield paint technology is also included.
The Music Pack also contains a pair of Ministry of Sound headphones. Branded with exclusive Juke logos, they feature 50mm speaker drivers and aluminium cups for high quality playback. Completing the pack is an activation code that allows customers exclusive VIP access to the Ministry of Sound music store.
The Juke with Ministry of Sound will cost from £17,895 and will be available with the full range of Juke engines, including a flagship 190PS 1.6-litre turbocharged DIG-T petrol and a 110PS 1.5-litre dCi diesel.
A new feature is a Stop/Start system for the 117PS 1.6-litre petrol engine. Available on all manual transmission Jukes except those in Visia trim, the Stop/Start system costs just £200 extra and reduces CO2 emissions from 139g/km to 136g/km, while fuel consumption in the urban environment – one of the Juke’s natural hunting grounds – is improved by seven per cent, from 36.7mpg to 39.2mpg. Combined economy also jumps from 47.1mpg to 48.7mpg too.
Nissan Juke Nismo launched
Power of the 1.6 DIG-T is up from 190PS to 200PS. Same 250Nm torque. Wheels are up to 18-inch with 225/45 R18 tyres. Power gets to the front wheels via a 6 speed manual transmission, or to all four wheels via a 7 selectable ratio CVT. 4WD version has "torque vectoring"from GT-R. Clingy bucket seats, an Alcantara and leather steering wheel, standard latest generation Nissan ‘Connect 2’ satnav. Works surprisingly well.
- Nissan Juke Nismo 2WD six-speed manual £19,995
- Nissan Juke Nismo 4WD ALLMODE CVT £22,195
Revised Juke 1.5 dCi announced
Now emitting 109g/km. The changes have boosted maximum torque from 240Nm to 260Nm at 1,750rpm, with 80 per cent of this figure available from just 1,500rpm to improve driveability. And with CO2 emissions of only 109g/km and combined fuel economy of 67.3mpg, the new unit is the most efficient engine in the Juke line-up.
Revised Juke revealed
There are new alloy wheels, a new audio system; latest generation NissanConnect driver-vehicle interface, Nissan Safety Shield, Nissan Dynamic Control system, plus the option of a new opening glass roof. On sale throughout Europe from Summer 2014.
Three engines are available for the 2014 Juke, with changes to the two petrol options. The existing and acclaimed 1.5 dCi diesel with 110PS continues unchanged.
The Alliance-developed 1.2-litre DIG-T petrol engine, which replaces the outgoing 117PS 1.6-litre unit, is an advanced turbocharged direct injection engine generating 190Nm of torque.
The existing 1.6 DIG-T petrol unit has been further improved to deliver lower end torque below 2,000rpm. Producing 140kW, it is already Euro6 compliant with target emissions of 139g/km of CO2for the 2WD versions. Among its new features are a higher combustion ratio, improved low friction technologies and cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation.
