Nissan has been quietly conquering the U.S. market one step a time. It has made its presence felt all across Asia but has been a quiet mover in the U.S. slowly but surely may be their game plan but that may change as it launches the 2017 Nissan Juke, voted as one of the best subcompact SUV.
The 2017 Nissan Juke is expected to be a big hit for those who are looking for a subcompact SUV which is fun, sporty, and most especially affordable according to Kelley Blue Book. To add, it also all-wheel drive and ground clearance is not taken for granted. There is even a manual transmission available for those who prefer to be mostly in control of their speed.
It is also considered one of the best to drive by being able to successfully maneuver and manage twisting roads with ease. The front-wheel-drive or FWD models use a solid rear axle and have notable torque steer under acceleration, but the AWD's torque-vectoring system takes care of this issue.
The 2017 Nissan Juke also has I-CON or Integrated Control System Interface. The I-CON display presents different function controls by just changing the screens. It controls climate functions o one screen and D mode adaptive throttle on another.
It also has an intelligent AWD with torque vectoring. This is geared to provide more traction in all weather. The torque-vectoring set up provides a sturdy grip when dealing with dry and slippery pavements.

The interior doesn't disappoint as well. Not only does it look like a fun vehicle from the outside, it gives it a suave motorcycle's fuel tank inside because of its molded plastic center. However, the Juke stays true to the word compact. While the driver has all the fun, the passengers are expected to be cramped.
As added by US News and World Report, the 2017 Nissan Juke gets a total of 7.6 points out of a possible 10. This report is from 55 different pieces of research and data elements for a more official and conclusive rating.
The subcompact SUV is small but it is speedy. This is because of its standard turbo engine that produces 188-horsepower. This is considered the best speed compared to all vehicles in its class. One step on the gas produces enough speed to outrun others in the freeway. With its striking colors, it will look like a striking piece of a yellow stripe as it speeds down.
The 2017 Nissan Juke is definitely one subcompact SUV to have. Nissan will again place itself as one of the best in the US as the Juke takes over the roads soon enough. Word will surely get around.
