I found much to recommend when it came to our Juke SV Sport Cross. It was fun to drive and had a comfortable ride and unique styling.

As ugly as it is, the Nissan Juke is no joke. It’s one of the fastest, best-handling, best-equipped small cars available in the U.S. market.

Given the turbo engine, standout styling, high fun-to-drive factor, long list of comfort and convenience items, and extensive safety equipment, the Juke should have no problem luring plenty of young, energetic buyers into Nissan showrooms.

We came away impressed with the Nissan Juke’s spunky nature, excellent turbocharged engine and unique packaging. Honestly, after a drive, the exterior begins to look endearing rather than some of the other adjectives we’ve heard used.

Segment-crossing mash-ups like the new 2011 Juke might just be the future of affordable entertainment. Make what you will of the way this Nissan looks, because in our book, that’d be no bad thing.

If our unscientific poll is even remotely accurate, Nissan has a hit on its hands with the Juke. It combines just the right amount of sport and utility in an offbeat package. Its looks will likely turn away as many as it impresses.

The all-new 2011 Nissan Juke is an all-wheel-drive (or fwd) compact crossover with distinctive fun styling, sharp sporty performance, and good cargo space.

The styling of the Nissan Juke may not be for everyone, but after a week with the five-door, we grew warm to its funky face. Hey, if people can welcome pug dogs into their homes, they should have no problem opening up the garage door for the 2011 Juke.

The 2011 Nissan Juke offers sprightly turbocharged performance, an innovative control interface, and, for better or worse, one-of-a-kind looks.

We can’t say we fell in love with the Juke during our evaluation, although we were hardly in a hurry to send it back to Nissan. Feeling like the budget-priced compact five-door it is, the Juke lacks the sophistication we’ve seen from MINI.

Unexpectedly quick and agile, the 2011 Nissan Juke is much harder to joke about once you’ve spent some quality time with it. Hipsters might discover that under the skin this frog is actually a fun-loving prince.
