Well I am so impressed by the car.
Picked up yesterday the 1.6 DIG-T 2WD 6 MT Tekna

Engine:
The DIG-T engine is perfect. Haven't done full rev offcourse, but you can feel the turbo getting in from 2500 rpm and it feels good. It feels actually like driving a diesel, Power hits in at low rpm's but it runs more smooth then a diesel engine. Can't wait till I have done the first 600 miles and can go al the way.
With the low power availeble at 2500 rpm, overtaking is easy without even switching gears

Starting the enige with the stop/start button is great, it turn on like a lil monster, make some more rev's and the gauges go al the way an then back. Very nice.

Only thing I find is that the engine sounds like it electric, then like a 190 hp power one.
But on the other hand it sounds really smooth. When you hit the troothle you can hear the exhaust slightly, my opinion is that the could have made that a lil more racy.

Drving:
Well first the suspension, allot of comments where on the suspension in al the test I read.
Well it feels hard and beause of the small wheel base it can feel a lil bumpy and nerveus when you're not drinving on the main roads. Actually it feel like riding a real 4x4 sometimes.
But this al disappears when you are taking the corners, this is one of the best cars I got that has this height and can take corners so smooth and fast. Feels so stable and the communication from the suspsension is perfect.

Driving highway is really nice, it's comfortable and when using the cruisecontrole it is like you can sit back a fall a sleep
Only one minor point when you are using the cruisecontrole, the display from the boardcomputer can't be shown anymore (it only shows the miles you put the cruiscontrole on)
Read the manual and there it even says the same


Eco, normal and sport are pretty good, you can really feel the diffrents, espacially between eco en sport. With eco the turbo doesn't hit in that hard, more smooth. Normal feels even quick and fast. The sport choice good on the steering and the trubo hit in hard, you can really feel ike someone pushes you.

Interior
Matrials are prefect for me, it's not a high class wrk, But it looks good, feel good and it is all done well. Leather seats are good, although they sit "grab" the body less well as they no-leather seats.
The seats are typical japanse to short on the legs part, and you can only adjust height and the back part (choice in height knee and bottoms would be nice). Heated seats but not electrical adjustments, that's a minor. But it adjusts quick and I don;t mis it.
Interior lights are missing in the back, espacially due to the designe and the privacy glass you really miss some light. When it's dark outside and you are putting something in the back, say a child seat, you can't see anything, because there is only a light above the mirror.
Als so the upperpart of the trunk is not nice to see. You see the metall part when you are in the back and look behind you.
Trunk space looks pretty small but, when you open the second part it is actually very big. And it has a nice small spare tire (don't know the english word)

You can really see the lichts on the bonnet, looks great at night

The ICON is fantastic gadget, but after one day, its nice, but I don;t use it accept for the climate control and the difrrent styles (normal, sport or eco). The g meter eco meter etc etc is nice, but actually only the passenger can watch it.

Funnt things like locking the doors automatic when driving and unlock when switching of the engine are great. Also the folding mirrors wich can be auto or manual.

Nissan connect system is not more then a upgrade tom tom with radio function to me.
Haven;t tried the usb port yet, but the bluetooth didn't work flawless yet. Kepps on disconnecting and my phone goes crazy :) have to check that out still

Overal rating form me is that this is the perfect car for me now. And can't wait to go full speed with it

I drives fantastic, sharp on the corners en more then enough power.

Funny thing is all the reactions from people, till now al positive.

When you see this car in real life it's much better then on pictures or video's

Congrats on your Juke. It is awesome. I have a question. What is that space on the lower rear bumper in the center. I've seen pictures of what appears to be a stop light or a reflector there. I wonder if it is a reflector if that could be for a towing receiver?

Thanks,will wait for the other photos. Do you find the boot a bit small? From some pictures it looks ok.
Here in South Africa the Juke will only be available in December or urly next year.

I think the cargo space is small, no question, but provides utility and versatility because of the fold down seats. The Juke is a small vehicle--tiny, in fact.

Yes it's small, because of the trunk (it not straight down)

But just what Voilet said, it's a small car
