The JUKE is a radical little crossover that is part CUV, part sports car and part futuristic art. Creating such an eye-catching vehicle isn’t all that complicated, but to create one that is highly functional, fast, affordable and highly fuel-efficient can be a tough task. This is one tough task in which Nissan has prevailed.
All versions of the 2012 Nissan Juke CUV are fitted with the automaker’s new 1.6-liter “DIG” (Direct Injection Gasoline) inline 4-cylinder that boasts direct fuel injection, turbocharging/intercooling and variable camshaft timing to deliver an impressive mix of performance and economy.
A manual-equipped front-drive Juke can sprint to 60 mph in around seven seconds, while the CVT and AWD each add about a half tick to that baseline figure.
With all this power, the Nissan JUKE still manages to produce some outstanding mpg numbers. Offering a combined 29 mpg, the JUKE has an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/32 mpg highway.
Combining all the features, styles, and power engines with the impressive fuel economy, the 2012 Nissan JUKE is a no-brainer for drivers looking to save a little cash at the pumps and still get the sporty vehicle they desire.
