Nissan car configurator: the £29k Nissan Juke
Nissan’s Juke crossover can usually be seen as good value.
Entry level price: Juke Visia 1.6 - £13,930The car we built: Juke Tekna DIG-T 190 Xtronic - £29,219
Key options:• Storm White pearlescent paint - £745• Creative Exterior+ Pack - £650• Alarm - £344
Nissan’s Juke crossover can usually be seen as good value. It might not be the most practical or fun car to drive but its tall driving position and adventurous styling mean buyers continue to flock to it. However, we can’t really imagine anyone would buy one at this price when you can get a top spec Qashqai Tekna for around £1,000 less.
The hefty price tag on our car is down to the huge swathe of personalisation options available, and the fact that our example comes with the turbocharged 188bhp petrol engine and Xtronic four-wheel drive.

- 3£38k MINI ClubmanThe funky MINI Clubman is an acquired taste due to its estate-like shape and six-door layout.
- 4£39k Vauxhall CascadaVauxhall is usually known as a value brand but things can get costly quickly when you add a lot of trimmings to the Vauxhall Cascada convertible.
- 5£42k 3cyl BMW 3 SeriesThis one is a little different to the rest of the cars on this list.
- 6£47k Volvo V40 Cross CountryIf you’ve got £47,000 hanging around in your back pocket you could go all out on the jacked-up version of Volvo’s premium hatch.
- 7£53k Volkswagen Passat EstateAlong with quite possibly the longest car name on sale right now, you could easily push a Volkswagen Passat Estate upwards of £50,000.
- 8£54k Mercedes-AMG A 45It’s already an expensive car as it is, coming in at a smidge under £40,000, but adding a wealth of driver aids, performance packs and a rather tasty looking grey paint finish means that you can have a hot hatch that will drain your wallet faster than the A 45’s 4.2-second 0-62mph time
- 9£71k RR Evoque
- 10£100k Audi Q7 If you go mad with the price list of the new Audi Q7, it could land you with a bill of more than £100,000.
- 11£130k Porsche 911 Carrera SSimilar to the BMW, we didn’t go all out on the range-topper with the 911 – instead we chose the sweet spot in the range.
