Sneak a Peek at the Nissan Juke

The Beat recently got a sneak peek at the new Nissan Juke in beautiful Vancouver. 
This small, sporty crossover is based on the Versa platform, is relatively inexpensive, and does not have the look or feel of a little econobox. 
It's got a spirited four-cylinder engine that gets 27 mpg city and 32 highway. 
Nissan is rather tongue-in-cheek about its marketing for the Juke, saying that it is squarely aimed at young guys who like sports, girls and comedy. 
But we suspect that this car might do very well in attracting female buyers as well as some older folks.
The Juke starts at around $18,960 and goes up to $24,550. Look for it in showrooms later this year.
We can't wait to spend more time with it.

Even if we didn't like the car (which we did), we still would have loved seeing beautiful British Columbia again. In fact, we're thinking of opening a B.C. bureau. Vancouver Auto Beat has a nice ring to it.

Nissan cars were really amazing. From SUV’s/ crossovers, to the trucks, to the different types of cars, to the future concepts, and to the Nismo performance were all one of a kind creation. No one can beat the power, the value, the response and the comfort that these car offers. You must try to drive one to experience the power within.
