Nissan Juke - MPG, CO2 and running costs
The Nissan Juke full hybrid model delivers impressive efficiency, although it's a little expensive to buy
Emissions and fuel economy for the 112bhp 1.0-litre model are dictated mainly by gearbox type and wheel size; Nissan quotes up to 48.7mpg for the manual and up to 47.1mpg for the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, while CO2 starts from 132g/km, with the manual the marginally cleaner option. While those numbers aren’t bad, the Peugeot 2008 and Skoda Kamiq are cleaner and more frugal options.
The answer to those two rivals is to consider the Juke petrol hybrid, because this model delivers a welcome 20 per cent improvement in fuel consumption. Nissan claims combined efficiency of up to 56.5mpg, which should be achievable - on our test route, we managed fuel economy in the high 40s. The emissions of the hybrid version are lower than the regular petrol, down to 112g/km. Again, those are fair figures, but rivals such as the Hyundai Kona hybrid and Toyota Yaris Cross are still lower.
If you happen to be a company car driver considering the Juke, you may want to also look at its sibling, the Renault Captur. You can get this as an ultra-low emission plug-in hybrid, which could significantly lower your monthly Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) company car tax bill. Then there are also the all-electric alternatives such as the Hyundai Kona Electric, Peugeot e-2008, and Vauxhall Mokka Electric, because these could help you save even more money.

All models get stop/start as standard, as well as an Eco drive mode that helps save fuel – but you’ll notice a drop in performance as a result.
The Juke is unlikely to break the bank in the insurance stakes; the standard petrol model range mostly occupies groups 12 and 13 (out of 50), while the hybrid is a little higher, in groups 14 and 15.

Our experts predict that the pure petrol-powered Juke models will retain around 51 to 56 per cent of their original value after three years and 36,000 miles come trade-in time, while top-spec hybrid models perform a little better, at 56 to 60 per cent. The closely related Captur fares pretty much the same with petrol versions holding on to an average of 50 to 52 per cent
However, the Volkswagen T-Cross in 1.0 110 Move trim will hold on to its resale value even better, and should be worth 61% of its original price over the same period.
