The base S model comes well equipped, especially for a reasonably priced small crossover. All Jukes get a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 188 horsepower. A CVT transmission is standard. The S also includes features like power windows, mirrors and locks with remote keyless entry, 17-inch alloy wheels, split-folding rear seat, air conditioning and a six-speaker audio system with AUX input and Bluetooth. The SV adds a standard six-speed manual transmission (a CVT is optional), keyless entry and start, satellite radio and privacy glass. The SL gets leather seats, heated front seats, automatic headlamps and a touchscreen navigation system with SiriusXM traffic and a backup camera. All-wheel drive is available on models with a CVT transmission.

The Mini Countryman has a more usable shape, offers better fuel economy and a more premium feel, but is much more expensive. The Jeep Patriot offers real off-road capability but has a cheap interior and less power. The Jeep Compass also has more off-road ability and equipment than a base Juke but is underpowered and cheap feeling. The Subaru XV Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive and is more spacious but is less fun and more expensive.
The Juke occupies an interesting niche in the market for people who want something more distinctive than a compact sedan or hatchback, but don't want the size or expense of even a small crossover. What's more, it has a perky turbocharged engine, looks that won't get lost in a crowd and a generous list of equipment that includes some relatively high-tech features. It may not have much off-road prowess or loads of interior room, but if the Juke is flexible enough for you, it's worth a look.
The Juke S comes well equipped for a small crossover. Like all Jukes, the S gets a standard 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower.

All-wheel drive is optional.
The SL packs in more convenience and technology features that aren't even available on some models in this size and price category. Standard features are automatic headlamps, front foglights, touchscreen navigation system with SiriusXM traffic, backup camera, leather upholstery, heated front seats, leather-wrapped shift knob, Rockford Fosgate audio system with an 8-inch subwoofer and a USB input. All-wheel drive is available and a six-speed manual transmission is available on models with front wheel drive.
The SV adds some more fun features to make the Juke more enjoyable. In addition to the S, the SV gets a power sunroof, privacy glass, the integrated control "I-CON" system with selectable drive modes, automatic climate control, keyless entry and start, passenger seatback pocket, upgraded cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and SiriusXM satellite radio.
