Used Car: 2013 Nissan Juke Review

Review Last Updated: 4/17/15

The 2013 Nissan Juke’s small cabin and limited cargo space may not make it the right choice for everyone, but reviewers liked its sharp handling and zippy acceleration.

A turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the 2013 Nissan Juke. An automatic transmission is standard and a manual is available. The Juke has standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive. With the automatic transmission and front wheel drive, the 2013 Juke gets 27/32 mpg city/highway, which is very good for the class. Reviewers said the Juke has athletic performance, with nimble handling and plenty of power for most situations. A few reviewers cautioned that the Juke has a taut ride, which some buyers may find too harsh.

Most reviewers said the 2013 Nissan Juke's cabin is small, as a few mentioned that the rear seat is cramped for adults. Overall cargo space is very small for a compact SUV. Several critics complained about cheap interior materials as well. Standard features in the 2013 Juke include an auxiliary input jack, Bluetooth and steering wheel audio controls. Available features include navigation, a USB port, a Rockford Fosgate audio system, proximity key and a rearview camera.

Other SUVs to Consider

Reviewers liked the upscale interior of the 2013 Buick Encore, and it has more cargo space than the Juke. They also said it has smooth, quiet performance and a comfortable ride, which buyers who find the Juke’s performance too sporty may appreciate.

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 won praise from reviewers when it was new for its athletic handling and sharp steering. Its cabin is roomy and upscale, according to critics, and it has more cargo space than the Juke.
