Looking for a ride that will stand out? RYAN BORROFF
METRO WORLD NEWS DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA
Test Drive. Nissan Juke
The inside has been cleverly-designed to be far more spacious than the exterior would suggest. It looks cool too, with a centre console inspired by the design of a motorcycle tank.
Nissan has shown that it is daring in its design with this unusual-looking proposition, the Nissan Juke. The car is a crossover mixing SUV and sports car. The combination might sound unlikely but it really works. This stylish and feisty little crossover city car, with its tough good looks, is designed, and set, to attract style-conscious men to the SUV segment.
Exterior A crossover fusion of SUV and sports car doesnâ€™t sound like a recipe for success, but this one is excellent. The combination of SUV up top and sports car down below works a treat.
By the numbers
Base price: $19,998 Engine: 1.6-litre Direct Injection Gasoline DOHC 16valve turbocharged 4-cylinder engine
Its unique, quirky good looks and deceptively spacious interior.
Its poor eco performance â€” the fuel economy and carbon emissions are not as green as they should be, in 2011.
Power: 188 horsepower
Youâ€™ll get great visibility as you ride up high, SUVstyle, but the car handles like a sports car, with very little body roll and a gokart feel in bends.
