Buying a Nissan Juke

By Mike Richards Posted: 09/21/2017

The Nissan Juke is an interesting looking vehicle, and even when you buy one of the used 2014 Jukes, it is still going to have plenty of style and get some second glances from people in the parking lot or as you drive on by. The vehicle has a sporty feel to it, but it also has the features of a hatchback and crossover, making it one of the most interesting cars on the market. If you are looking at used cars for sale online and have been trying to find something that’s a bit different, but still practical and full of features, the 2014 Nissan Juke could be a good fit for you.

Why Choose a Nissan Juke?

With the 2014 model, there were some changes added to the Juke, which help to make it an even better purchase, especially when you can get a used version. While it was already something of a sporty rider, there were turbocharged models introduced in 2014, making it more attractive by finally equaling the standards of other brands, such as the Honda CRV. The Juke has excellent capabilities when it comes to performance and braking, and many find that the vehicle is now even more appealing.

The base model is available in front wheel drive, as well as all-wheel drive, and it has a 188hp 1.2-liter engine. This engine offers a surprising amount of torque, and it can accelerate quickly. Even with the all-wheel drive models, the vehicle can get 25mpg in the city and 30mpg on the highway. Those who find a used high-performance model will have a 1.2-liter 197hp engine that improves its capabilities, and makes it a good option even in colder areas.

The vehicle’s style, mentioned earlier, is also very impressive. It truly does hold a unique place when compared with all of the other crossover models available. The NISMO model even features a spoiler. In all, there are five trim models available including the S base model, the SV and SL models, and the NISMO and NISMO RS. The latter two have an improved suspension that can provide you with a sportier ride. The headlights even have the capability to sense when it is dusk, and they will come on automatically.

When it comes to features, you will not be disappointed by what is available with the 2014 Nissan Juke. It has Bluetooth capability and hands-free calling, which is essential in today’s world. It also has an optional glass sunroof, and better visibility through the windshield. In the past, some consumers worried that the windshield was not presenting them with optimal visibility, but that seems to have been cleared up with the 2014 model.

Those who can find a used SL model will enjoy even more features, such as the improved audio system with subwoofers, a backup camera system, and in-dash navigation. Both the SL and SV models have an optional push start system, which might be of interest, so keep an eye out for it as you peruse the used cars for sale.

With all of the great features that this vehicle can offer, it is still important to consider some of the potential downsides. There is not as much room in the backseat as some might like, and the trunk is not overly spacious.

This is certainly an interesting vehicle that has a look that you will love, while still offering plenty of features. Overall, this can be a fantastic buy for those who want a quality vehicle that is something different from all of the other crossover options out there today. On the used market, the price of these vehicles tends to be good, so you may be able to find some great deals.

Finding the Right 2014 Nissan Juke

As mentioned, there are many models and optional features available. When you are looking at the used cars for sale, make sure that you know exactly what features you want from the Juke, and make sure the cars you are considering have those features. In addition, you should learn as much as possible about the mileage and the condition of the vehicle before you make your purchase. This will help to ensure you are getting a quality vehicle.
