Hopefully we'll get some hard numbers, soon. I think you're correct about the off-roading bit, I'm sure the Juke is meant primarily as a city cruiser with 'command seating' or whatever they are calling it, and decent interior space for the vehicle size. I just wanted to make sure it would have enough clearance to avoid scraping in the horrid road system built in San Antonio.I think it may have a lower ground clearance than the Rogue. The Juke is smaller than the Rogue, so my thoughts are that it will be slightly closer to the ground. I don't think Nissan is building the Juke for off-roading, but for a bit of a higher ride...
Doing a little more reasearch on this it looks like crossovers like this take the true sport out of sport utility. More urban assualt then offroad so you wont have trouble driving up and onto things to find parking as long as the terrain is concrete and asphalt.
Only problem though is part of the exhaust pipe heading into the muffler seems to drop pretty low. I'm concerned about it when going over high speed bumps (if I forget to slow down) and the snow/ice that my apartment complex plows in front of our cars.The Juke's Ground Clearance is 7" or 178mm.
You sit lower in the Juke than the RAV4. We have a RAV4, a Jeep and a Camry and sitting in the Juke is higher than the Camry but lower than the Jeep or RAV4.My first test, upon seeing the Juke, was to try the seating height. If it was lower than my RAV4, then no sale!!
However, it felt extremely similar, so no worries on that score.
Roll on the end of November!!
