I caught a glimpse of the 2011 Nissan Juke for the very first time last weekend. Finally I could see what the thing looked like in real life, because sometimes a computer screen doesn't tell the whole story.
Once I saw it, a number of words blended themselves together in my head. Funky, ugly, striking, weird, confusing... So, the Juke is one "funksteirdfusingly" looking car.
Maybe the guy in the YouTube clip below will help explain things a little better.
You know what? I am growing to like it. I like that it is radically different from your run-of-the-mill CUV, even though I think most CUVs are pointless anyways (MINI Countryman?). I like that it comes with a turbocharged 1.8-liter direct-injection engine as standard. I love the motorcycle-inspired center console. I love the wheel arches.
And so, I think I might have just proved Mr. Albasia's ideas of capturing the spirit of a young dude. If you're that college age and you are looking for something that isn't just another...
