Nissan Juke review - MPG, CO2 and running costs
The Juke offers decent economy and is relatively cheap to insure, although average CO2 emissions will count against it
The Nissan Juke is available with just one engine – a 1.0-litre three-cylinder with 115bhp. Emissions and fuel economy are largely dictated by gearbox type and wheel size; Nissan quotes up to 47.9mpg for the manual and up to 46.3mpg for the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, while CO2 starts from 134g/km, with the manual the marginally cleaner option.
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 car occupies groups 13 and 14 (out of 50). Insurance will be more expensive when larger engines are added to the range, however. Its Skoda Kamiq rival sits in groups 11 to 17 depending on engine choice.
Our experts predict that the Juke will retain around 47 to 50 per cent of its value after 36 months and 36,000 miles come trade-in time. The closely related Renault Captur fares pretty much the same, holding on to an average of 48 per cent over the same period.
