The funky-looking Juke is derived from the small Nissan Versa. It has the raised ride height and optional AWD of an SUV, but the steeply raked rear quarter makes for lousy rear visibility. The rear seat is tight, and the trifling cargo space limits practicality. Nimble handling and the punchy 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder make it fun and zippy. Its 24 mpg overall isn't bad, but the need for premium fuel is a downer. As in some sporty hatchbacks, a noisy cabin and stiff ride come with the territory. Reliability has been average.
