If you’re looking for a new way to meet people (aside from social media portals), then drive around town with the 2015 Nissan Juke. Even if you’re stuck in traffic while driving in this vehicle, folks may want to gather around you with this weird looking crossover. Its design is like that of a 50/50 split – you either love it or you hate it.
Driving The 2015 Nissan Juke Might Give You Weird Looks or Excited Stares
Under the hood of the 2015 Nissan Juke, you will find a small 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. However, thanks to a bit of turbocharging, this engine will be able to produce 188-horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The generated power will then travel to all of its four wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). As for its efficiency ratings, it can deliver 26 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.
The Nissan Juke will be available in three driving modes, them being Normal, Eco, and Sport. These modes adjust the throttle, transmission, and steering. While in Normal Mode, well, driving performance is normal (to say the least). However, this vehicle truly shines when on Sport Mode. When in this mode, the throttle response will be sharpened, the transmission will stay in higher revs, and the steering will bit a bit heavier. Within Sport Mode, the Juke will be able to take on back roads like they were nothing.
But when you place the car in Eco Mode, although it does give one of the best fuel efficiency in its class, it does sacrifice all the fun out of the car. While in this mode, the Juke will have to push itself to the absolute limits to bring revs past 2,000. However, you will be rewarded with a little graph in which it will indicate the level of green of your driving performance. If you are the type of person who wants a 5-star rating for eco-compliance, then it may be in your best interest to look at that graph all the time.
Through its looks, the 2015 Nissan Juke is beautifully weird. It is like its designers got the design half right, went into an all-night drinking binge, got heavily drunk, then continued on with the process. While the look may not be for everyone, just think about this – there are a lot of boring cars out there. This is a fun crossover that demands attention.
