Nissan Juke Interior
The 2015 Nissan Juke’s cabin features bold, flashy styling, auto journalists say, though some think the design isn’t very cohesive. They also note that there are some cheap materials, including hard, thin plastics. Reviewers say the Juke’s front seats offer decent comfort and support, but they agree that the low roofline leaves little headroom in both rows. Reviewers say the 2015 Juke’s infotainment and climate controls are straightforward. The Juke has one of the smallest cargo holds in the class.
- "‘Loud and proud’ still spills into the interior too. That ‘motorcycle gas tank-inspired’ center console has been retained for 2015, along with the big chunks of painted plastic and accented seats. It's wild, it's distinctive, and it's more electrifying that any crossover has a right to be." -- Jalopnik
- "The adventurous theme continues inside, where organic curves abound and a center console designed to mimic the fuel tank of a motorcycle provides a bit of visual sizzle." -- Left Lane News
- “The modifications are welcome, but they don't mask the innate disjointedness of the JUKE's dashboard layout, and they don't help the hard plastics used on the dash and door panels feel any less thin or cheap. The numerous information screens are all small by 2013 standards, and the whole cabin feels like it was designed in pieces, not as a whole.” -- AutoTrader (2014)
- "If you're into cutting-edge interior styling, the 2013 Nissan Juke SUV is the poster child for the compact SUV segment. From its molded plastic center console that mimics a motorcycle's fuel tank to the multifunction ventilation controls that, with a push of a button, change to become the Sport/Normal/Eco mode throttle controls, the Juke's interior is a visual smorgasbord." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
The 2015 Juke seats five on standard cloth seats. Options include heated front seats, sport bucket front seats with extra side support, faux-suede or leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Juke’s front seats are reasonably comfortable and supportive, reviewers say. However, a few critics point out that the Juke’s lack of a telescoping steering wheel can make it difficult for the driver to get comfortable. They also agree that the Juke’s low roofline limits headroom in both rows, and some report that the rear seats are difficult to access.
- "Nissan's people told me the Juke ‘was almost a three-door,’ and it still feels like the designers didn't make much of a concession with rear access in the final form. Put the front seats in an acceptable position for 6' people, and the rear becomes pretty unlivable." -- Jalopnik
- "Downsides include limited rear seat headroom - blame the rakish roofline. …” -- Left Lane News
- "It is none too spacious, either, with even average-sized rear passengers hitting their heads on the black headliner." -- AutoTrader (2014)
- "The front seats are comfortable, with substantial side bolsters well suited to enthusiastic driving. A steering wheel that tilts but doesn't telescope may make it harder for some drivers to get comfortable, though. A shortage of headroom makes the rear seats best for shorter adults and kids." -- Edmunds (2013)
The 2015 Nissan Juke’s standard features include Bluetooth, a rearview camera, a hands-free text messaging assistant, push-button start and a six-speaker audio system with a 5-inch color display, satellite radio and a USB port. Optional features include a six-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system, an Around View monitor that uses multiple cameras to provide a 360-degree view around the vehicle and the NissanConnect infotainment system, which includes navigation, mobile app integration and a 5.8-inch touch screen.
According to reviewers, the Juke’s climate and audio controls are easy to use, and they appreciate the abundance of modern infotainment and navigation technology.
- "Climbing into the cockpit gets you properly fired up; red LCD displays that supplement the easy-to-read speedo and tach manage to feel sleek in this application. …" -- Jalopnik
- “… the Juke's controls are large and easy to operate. …” -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Backlit gauges are clearly marked and unobstructed. Stereo and climate controls are easily accessible.” -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- “Cutting-edge audio, navigation and communication options are a welcome bonus." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
The Nissan Juke has 10.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use and 35.9 cubic feet with the seats folded. With many rivals offering twice that amount of space, the Juke has one of the smallest cargo holds in the class. Most reviewers agree that the Juke’s small cargo hold limits its practicality, and some point out that there’s little in the way of small-item storage spaces in the cabin.
- "Cargo space isn't exactly abundant, but it's viable for two people's luggage or a week's worth of groceries." -- Jalopnik
- "And a distinct shortage of cargo space hampers this little crossover's utility, which, let's face it, is half the reason to get a crossover over a sedan." -- AutoTrader (2014)
- "Small-items storage is subpar; there are no cupholders in the rear-seat area, only a bottle holder in each rear door." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
