2015 Nissan Juke Overview

Is the 2015 Nissan Juke a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Nissan Juke is a good subcompact SUV if you're looking for a vehicle that performs more like a budget-friendly sports car. While its lively handling and strong engine power inspire confidence, its poor safety scores bring concern. Despite its impressive list of user-friendly standard features, the Juke's cabin looks cheap.

Used 2015 Nissan Juke Performance and Interior

The front-wheel-drive Nissan Juke comes standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 188 horsepower and snappy highway acceleration to get you moving quickly. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard. The performance-oriented Nismo RS comes with a 215-horsepower version of the same base engine and a standard six-speed manual transmission. The CVT is available. All-wheel drive is available in all CVT-equipped models. A driving mode selection system is available in all but the base model. It allows you to choose between eco, normal, and sport modes, which adjust your throttle and transmission settings.   

Not only is the Juke powerful, it's also fuel-efficient. At 28 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, the base Juke earns some of the highest estimates among subcompact SUVs. However, it requires premium fuel, so prepare to spend a little more at the pump.

The Juke can handle sharp corners with composure and confidence, making it a blast to drive. Its steering is also precise, nicely weighted, and responsive. Nismo models provide serious fun behind the wheel and add a number of performance-boosting features, like a sport suspension and retuned brakes.

The Nissan Juke's interior offers bold styling and cheap materials that may be off-putting for some shoppers. However, its infotainment system and dashboard controls for climate and audio settings are quite user-friendly. While there are seats for five in the 2-row Nissan Juke, most adults will not want to climb into its cramped rear seats. That's true for most subcompact SUVs, however. Up front, the Juke's seats are fairly comfortable and supportive, but headroom is poor throughout the cabin. There are complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats and an upper tether anchor on the rear middle seat. At a maximum 35.9 cubic feet, cargo space is paltry – even for a subcompact SUV. 

The 2015 Nissan Juke’s standard features include Bluetooth, a USB port, and a 5-inch color display. Some used models may come with the NissanConnect infotainment system, which includes navigation, mobile app integration, and a 5.8-inch touch screen.

Should I Consider Another Used Juke?

The Nissan Juke began production with the 2011 model year, and its first generation continues through the 2017 model year. While earlier models might cost less, the 2015 Juke's added features make it worth the extra money. Nissan added several notable standard features for the 2015 model year, including push-button start, a rearview camera, hands-free texting, and styling and engine updates.

Which Used Nissan Juke Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Nissan Juke has five trims: S, SV, SL, Nismo, and Nismo RS. The Juke S will satisfy most shoppers, offering an impressive amount of features for the class, including proximity key, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth phone and audio, a 5-inch color display, smartphone app integration, hand's-free texting, satellite radio, a USB port, and iPod connectivity. The Juke SV adds upgrades like a moonroof, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and premium cloth seating. It's also available with heated outside mirrors, heated front seats, navigation, a 5.8-inch touch screen, voice commands, an Around View monitor, and a premium Rockford Fosgate stereo with a subwoofer. If you want all of the SV trim's available features, find a Juke SL, which includes most of them as standard. It also adds leather upholstery.

Performance enthusiasts will want to consider the Juke Nismo models. Both come with a six-speed manual transmission (or an available continuously variable transmission). The Juke Nismo comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension, front sport seats, and racy exterior styling to match its performance. The Juke Nismo RS models take that sportiness a few steps further, offering a stronger turbocharged four-cylinder engine, braking enhancements, an upgraded exhaust system, Recaro sport bucket front seats, and a sharper suspension.

You may also want to consider a certified pre-owned Juke. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2015 Nissan Juke and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Juke or 2015 Kia Soul?

The Kia Soul has poor fuel economy and a weak engine, but its interior beats the Juke's. The Soul has about 25 cubic feet more cargo space, and its seats are roomy in both rows. Its hushed cabin also features first-rate materials and handsome styling. The Kia Soul was named our 2015 Best Hatchback for Families.
