2011 Nissan Juke, Weird Begets Sales
The all new Nissan Juke is one odd looking automobile. Is it a coupe? A crossover? Way too small to be a SUV, but isn't that what an SUV is supposed to look like? You can't identify the Juke with one word, but what you can rely on is sales. Look down your block, we bet you'll see an all new 2011 Nissan Juke somewhere.
Nissan calls the Juke a "Sport Cross," mating a sports sedan's performance with the utility of a SUV. Still not sure what they mean? Head over to Connell Nissan, 2850 Harbor Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92626, and you can find out for yourself.
Juke's 188 horsepower, coming from the four-cylinder turbocharged engine, is a surprise to buyers. It's got a lot of power, but also doesn't skimp in fuel economy. A Nissan Juke SV with AWD is EPA rated at 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
All Nissan Jukes, no matter the trim level, come with a long list of standard features, including Bluetooth hands-free phone system. The six-speed manual transmission is only on the FWD models. The Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is optional on FWD and standard with the AWD version.
Check out the Juke in person, and be another on your block to drive the future of automotive design and performance.
