The Nissan Juke (Japanese: 日産・ジューク, Nissan Jūku) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese manufacturer Nissan since 2010. The production version made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March, and was introduced to North America at the 2010 New York International Auto Show to be sold for the 2011 model year. The name "juke" means to dance or change directions demonstrating agility.
On 11 February 2009, Nissan announced that the model would go into production at the Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd (NMUK) plant in Sunderland, UK, during 2010 following its appearance as the Nissan Qazana concept car at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The Sunderland plant (NMUK) manufactures for the European market, while Nissan's facility in Oppama, Japan, produces the vehicle for all other countries. Both Sunderland and Oppama are suppliers of the all-wheel drive variant. The car was launched in the UK on 24 September 2010.
In Japan, where the car was launched on 9 June 2010, orders totalled 10,943 units in its first month, surpassing Nissan's monthly target of 1,300. By 5 October 2010, Japanese sales had increased to 20,000 while European and US figures also exceeded expectations with orders for 30,000 and 17,500 cars taken for the respective markets. The Juke is sold in China as the rebadged Infiniti ESQ. At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the revised Nissan Juke for 2015 model year, which went on sale in the summer of 2014. On the exterior, the revision is basically limited to LED Daytime Running lights in front, new front and rear bumper styling and a few new colour schemes. While new standard equipment includes a rear-view camera, keyless go and Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
A NISMO version powered by an uprated variant of the standard 1.6L Turbo joined the lineup for the 2013 model year and was followed by a NISMO RS for the 2014 model year.

The car's profile is dominated by the prominent wheel arches and the body's high waistline which contrast with the slim side windows, which is a modern interpretation of "coke bottle styling" popular during the 1960s and 1970s. Echoing a style first seen on the Maxima, Nissan's high performance electric coupé concept shown at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the glasshouse resembles a crash helmet visor. A coupé-like appearance is achieved by the rear door handles being located near the C-pillars, within the window frame. Locating the rear door handles within the window frame is a Nissan styling tradition, begun with the 1985 Nissan Pathfinder, copied from the first generation of the Lancia Y. The sport motif continues inside with the red- or grey-painted centre console bearing similarity to a motorcycle fuel tank.
The front end features a stacked array of lights. Running lamps and indicators are mounted atop the front wings, their lenses visible from inside the cabin as an aid to manoeuvring. Below them, under the lower edges of an expansive, curved grille, the main headlamps are intended to be reminiscent of those fitted to rally cars during the 1960s and 1970s. Where fitted, fog lamps are situated on a third level within the sump guard at the bottom.
The Juke features seating for five (two in front, three in back). The rear seats have a 60/40 split and can be folded down independently in order to carry larger objects. The rear cargo area is small but features additional storage beneath the floor (front wheel drive models only).
The center portion of the dash contains the radio and the I-CON control (if so equipped—see below). Depending on market and trim level the Juke may be equipped with: iPod or USB connectivity, NissanConnect GPS navigation, rear-view camera and Bluetooth audio. A somewhat deep glovebox on the passenger side houses an iPod connector (if so equipped).
Common to all but base models is Nissan's Integrated Control System, dubbed I-CON: a command module that sits in the lower dashboard, which manages both the climate control and the vehicle's drive mode (Normal, Sport or Eco). Its display and nomenclature change according to the function selected. Among the available display data are fuel efficiency stats, real-time G-force measurements and turbo boost pressure.

The original Juke serves as the base model for the other Juke models. The Juke has different trim designations depending on international markets.
- S level with either manual transmission or CVT. SV level, I-CON system is NOT standard and is available as an option. SL level, I-CON system is standard, Navigation system is available.
- Three trim levels were initially available with the MR16DDT engine: S, SV and SL. The base engine is rated at 188 hp (140 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 177 lb⋅ft (240 N⋅m) of torque at 2,000 rpm. The base S model is available only with a CVT transmission and lacks the I-CON display. The SV model adds I-CON, optional 6-speed manual transmission and moonroof. The SL model adds leather seats, USB connectivity and a rear-view camera. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring is optional on all trims but cannot be paired with a manual transmission.
- Four levels are specified. The RX and RS models are equipped with the HR15DE I4 engine, while the MR16DDT is supplied for the 16GT and 16GT FOUR.
- Five trim levels are indicated for the HR16DE, K9K and MR16DDT engines: Visia, Acenta (also available with Sport and Premium packs), Tekna, Nismo and Nismo RS. In 2012, Nissan replaced the limited edition Juke Kuru with the Juke Shiro model. The Shiro was a limited edition Juke with white accents throughout the interior including white stitching on the leather seats, gear shift and steering wheel as well as several other aesthetic options.
- New Zealand
- Two trim levels: ST and Ti, are available. Both are front-wheel drive and are powered by the HR16DE engine with the sole transmission, the XTRONIC CVT. Some features on the higher-spec Ti include 17-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Control System (DCS) drive modes, intelligent key with push start button and dual front, side and curtain airbags.
- The Juke for the Indonesian market comes with two trim levels: RX and Red, with one engine type: HR15DE I4. Both trims are only available with XTRONIC CVT. The Red model, only available in Indonesia, adds roof spoiler, different grille colour and bigger audio display screen. On 12 February 2015, Nissan Motor Indonesia added "Revolt" trim to the lineup, while introducing facelift for Indonesian Juke. So the line up consists RX and Revolt trims (Red models was no longer offered) with red or black interior option.
- The Juke sold in Chile is the one made in the UK, and sales began in 2012. Three trim levels are offered: Sense, Advance and Exclusive, with two engines, 1.6 and 1.6 Turbo, with the turbo engine only available in the Exclusive trim level. All of them come with CVT except the Exclusive Turbo, and the AWD option is only offered in the Exclusive.
- Sri Lanka
- The Japanese-made Juke sold in Sri Lanka is the same as the Japanese version. Four levels are specified. The RX and RS models are equipped with the HR15DE I4 engine, while the MR16DDT is supplied for the 16GT and 16GT FOUR.
Juke Nismo (2013)
New for 2013, the NISMO version differs from the base Juke in styling changes to the bumpers and skirts, interior styling, modified suspension and steering, 18 in (46 cm) wheels, an unspecified "torque vectoring" option, and engine tuning. The engine is rated at 197 hp (147 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 184 lb⋅ft (249 N⋅m) of torque at 2,000 rpm. For the American Market there is also a higher-end Nismo RS variant, with upgraded standard equipment (Recaro front seats, carbon fiber). The engine is upgraded to 215 hp (160 kW) at 6,300 rpm and 210 lb⋅ft (285 N⋅m) at 3,600 rpm.
The New York Times review was generally positive, but: "About that styling: I love it, but you might hate it. The face is dominated by bug-eye headlamps, and the running lights bulge up above the hood such that they’re in the driver’s line of sight. At night, the effect is of large bio-luminescent slugs lounging atop the front fenders. Admittedly, it’s more appealing than I’m making it sound."
The Juke-R is a limited production run Juke with a Nissan GT-R's VR engine that produces 545 hp (406 kW). Nissan has recently[when?] announced a total of 23 Juke-Rs will be produced with the 2013 GT-R's running gear and performance stats.
The Juke ACENTA is the latest production model Juke with a DIG-T 115 2WD petrol Engine with a fuel consumption of 50.4 mpg and a CO2 Emission rating of 129g/km, it has a six-speed manual transmission. Body sizes are: Height 1565mm, Length 4135mm, Body Width 1765mm.

It was reported that customers of the Juke mainly consisted of young buyers and the elderly, resulting in an average age in the late 40s.
In Europe, it is Nissan's second best-selling car behind the Qashqai. U.S. sales of the Juke are slowing in 2015, but the crossover sold 38,000 units in 2013 and 2014, and about 36,000 copies in 2011 and 2012.
