‘The Nissan Juke Is Clearly No Joke’

Screw you, I like the Nissan Juke! While it's not attractive in the classical sense (or really any sense), it is unique and distinctive, and it's rather fun to drive.


Mr. John Davis and the MotorWeek team got to put the Juke through its paces back in 2011, and they start out with an in-depth analysis of its styling that may cause you to throw up. But once that's over, they conclude that the Juke is roomy, well-equipped, and with a small turbo four that's "snappy and strong." That trick torque vectoring AWD system is neat, too.

Check out the Juke Zoom about a minute and a half in! Here it is in .GIF form so you can enjoy it all the time.


I especially love the supercar-killing Juke-R, but since that thing is next to impossible to get your hands on, I can't fault anyone for buying a regular Juke instead.

I like how Nissan makes great cars, like the Z, GT-R, and the Juke, yet still make horrid cars, like the Pathfinder Crossover, and the Muronic CrossCabriolet
