Every Juke gets a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that makes 188 horsepower (or 215 in the NISMO RS only). All-wheel drive can be added to any model for about $1,700.
Performance highlights include:
- Transmissions: A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is used on most models. NISMO and NISMO RS models without all-wheel drive get a six-speed manual.
- Steering/Handling: Thanks to the standard sport-tuned suspension, the Juke offers athletic handling from the start.
- Acceleration: The Juke scoots from zero to 60 mpg in 7.3 seconds, which is downright fast in the world of small hatchbacks and crossovers.
