As auto regulation standards become tougher and gas prices remain high, fuel efficiency is still a huge factor in new car shopping, especially for drivers looking for larger vehicles like crossovers and SUVs. Lucky for you, the Nissan JUKE was rated as one of the 10 Most Fuel-efficient SUVs and Crossovers by Kelley Blue Book.
The distinctive Nissan crossover achieves 27 city/32 highway mpg*, and a total of 29 mpg combined*, setting itself apart by more than just its quirky appearance.
According to Kelley Blue Book, “the JUKE really impresses with a genuinely fun-to-drive nature.” Making it fun to drive and fuel-efficient is the 1.6L direct-injection turbocharged engine that produces 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.
Other notable features of the 2012 Nissan JUKE are the Xtronic CVT transmission with sport mode and available all-wheel drive. The combination of the independent strut front suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars, and big tires produce dynamic performance, making the crossover as sporty as it is family-friendly.
The JUKE is also equipped with a long list of standard safety features, including the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System with dual-stage front airbags, roof-mounted side curtain airbags, LATCH system, front and rear crumple zones, and many others. The Nissan JUKE also sits taller and has oversized mirrors, increasing visibility and maneuverability.
Kelly Blue Book heaped praise upon the 2012 JUKE, saying “it takes guts to build a car like the 2012 Nissan JUKE, a radical little crossover that is part CUV, part sports car and part ultramodern rolling art.” If you’re looking for the perfect combination of versatility, utility, style, and fun, test drive a new JUKE at Bates Nissan in Killeen today.
