The interiors of the Nissan Juke are a bit more restrained as compared with the exteriors and thus we have pleasant rounds from the front side. The silver accents brighten up the things which are properly covered with thin cloth like structure. On the upside, the intuitive operation and large knobs controls are very helpful in storing things. The front seats of the Nissan Juke are well bolstered, back seats are well shaped and more often both offer ample amount of space for headroom and legroom. Besides this the roof of the car are exclusive with good amount of cargo capacity as we have seen in the Scion xB.

Overall the 2011 Nissan Juke is energetic to drive that feels larger and thus provide strong power on the engines. Also, it works quite effectively particulalrly when quick acceleration is been needed. At higher speeds it offers windy noise. The well buttoned down suspension and weighted steering offers crisp response and manages to balance between the ride comfort and handling prowess.
