S drawer? No, it doesn't fit into any. The Nissan Juke is unique. In contrast to the overpressure Mini Countryman, it follows its own line. The only question is which one.

Small cargo space, great drive influences

At a length of a good 4.10 meters, the Nissan Juke offers people sitting in front acceptable shelter, but at the back there is already an intimate tightness behind the small side windows. In any case, you can look inside the Nissan Juke better than outside. In city traffic, the driver's neck muscles never rest, while he has to constantly peck between the A- and C-pillars planted in the area so as not to bury anyone under the charismatic crossover front.

The Nissan Juke box causes a stir and makes you laugh. For example Skoda Yeti pilots when they compare their 251 liter trunk volume with theirs (405). The Nissan Juke packs a maximum of 830 liters (Yeti: 1,760). The fun stops with the drive influences, however, the driven front axle is clearly overwhelmed by the 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine.

When 190 HP and 240 Newton meters act on the 215 tires, they are condemned to a compromise between steering and traction - the result is a lazy one. In the test, however, there is a touch of joy on board the Nissan Juke, more contemplatively moved: the low price, the lavish equipment and the simple operation including selectable driving dynamics settings plus color screen.
