QUOTE
The Nissan Juke is a mini-crossover being released by the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan during 2010.[1] The production version made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March,[2] and was introduced to North America at the 2010 New York International Auto Show.[2]
On 11 February 2009 Nissan announced that the model would go into production at the NMUK plant in Washington, UK, during 2010 following its appearance as the Nissan Qazana concept car at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.[3] The Sunderland plant manufactures for the European market, while Nissan's facility in Oppama, Japan, produces the vehicle for all other countries and is the sole supplier of the all-wheel drive variant.[4]
In Japan, where the car was launched on 9 June 2010, orders totalled 10,943 units in its first month, surpassing Nissan's monthly target of 1,300 by a margin it never predicted.[5] By 5 October 2010, Japanese sales had increased to 20,000 while European and US figures also exceeded expectations with orders for 30,000 and 17,500 cars taken for the respective markets.[6]

Nissan wanted a "hate-it-or-love-it" design, and that's why it's Neutral.

Idk, I hate the styling but I like the overall package, so its cool.

I erred on the side of cool for the unique packaging and spacey looks, but I do find the idea that we need to jack up a decent hatchback on stilts to sell it to be rather stupid.

I voted cool. It's quirky, fun-to-drive, and decently quick. It's a lot more interesting than any other similarly-sized, similarly-priced car I can think of

Voted uncool for the same intangible reasons I always use to vote on the coolness of things.

The way Nissan made this different makes it cool, and it is also the fact that this looks different makes it kinda uncool. Neutral for me.

They look pretty cool in person, and is something different from the ordinary. I give it a cool.

I call it the "Nissan Joke".....

Neutral

I'm not into the suv's or so called cross-overs. I mean, wtf is a cross-over supposed to do anyway? Is that similar to cross dressing? It's really confusing...

Neutral it is.

Single ugliest car currently on sale.

I would give it neutral because it's different, but I feel physically nauseous when I see one.

Posted by: clarkma5 Apr 23 2011, 07:49 PM

Heh I really like the way these things look...they definitely catch my eye.

Then again, I'm a card-carrying member of the Isuzu Vehicross fanclub. I love freaky little SUV/frog things for some reasons?

It'd be so much better if they took the "crossover" out of it.

^Haha! There we go, I agree. I think it's cool, I feel the same way about the Cube, they're both weird and kinda ugly, but I like it.
