How much does the Nissan Juke cost to run?

The 1.5L diesel is the most economical Nissan Juke to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Nissan Juke 1.5L diesel costs £20.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band B.

It does not far off 71 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Peugeot 3008 1.5L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 11, which is lower than the Dacia Duster 1.5L diesel, but higher than the Citroen C3 Aircross 1.2L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Citroen C3 Aircross has the lowest insurance group.)

Nissan Juke: How big is the boot?

The Nissan Juke has a below average boot space (328 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Renault Kadjar hatchback is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 4 large bags with its 647 litres.

Is the Nissan Juke easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Citroen C4 Cactus), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill three quarters of the space.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 4135m long it gives you reasonable 665mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Nissan Juke has the best performance?

The fastest Nissan Juke from 0-60, is the 1.6L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 280 lbs/ft torque and 218 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 7 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the MINI Paceman 1.6L petrol, which will beat your Nissan Juke to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Nissan Juke tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Nissan Juke 1.5L diesel which has 260 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1250kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
