Went to look at a Juke, the car itself was great but I noticed this high pitch ticking from the 1.2T engine. It’s 2017 done 40k miles.

Do they all sound like that or is it an issue? I’ve seen mention of timing chain issues on these?

High pressure fuel pump and injectors are what is making that ticking noise and what you are hearing.

These little modern direct injected motors sound like little old tractors at idle. It should smooth out a bit when it's warm but it'll still tick and make that metallic sound. You can also raise the idle rpm a tad and that makes the engine sound a bit more "normal" at idle if it bugs you I guess.
