The diminutive Nissan Juke was introduced last year, and carries over into 2012 virtually unchanged.
Small stature perfect for urban driving; distinctive styling; zippy performance from turbocharged engine; available all-wheel drive
The growing crossover segment is creating a competition among auto manufacturers of who could best balance the conflicting components of small yet roomy, powerful yet fuel efficient and sporty yet rugged. Nissan, long famous for both athletic and tough vehicles, seems to have hit all the buttons with the new Juke. The car's small-car origins mean it is ideal as an around-town cruiser and easy to park, yet its all-wheel drive capabilities will allow you to leave the city behind. Rivals like the Suzuki SX4 can't match the Juke for performance, and its distinctive looks mean that it will surely turn heads.
