Safety & Features

As of this writing, the Juke has not been crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard safety features include six airbags, active head restraints, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Click here for a full list.

About $19,000 gets you a front-wheel-drive Juke S. That's in the neighborhood of small crossovers like the Outlander Sport, the Kia Sportage and the Hyundai Tucson. It comes nicely equipped at that price: The CVT automatic, power windows and locks, 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control and an iPod-compatible stereo with steering-wheel audio controls are all standard.

The better-equipped SV and SL trims have manual transmissions, though the automatic is an affordable $500 on each. All-wheel drive runs another $1,500 — also pretty affordable — but it requires the automatic. Other available features include a navigation system, heated leather seats, a backup camera and a moonroof. The Juke SL comes fully equipped; with an automatic and all-wheel drive, it runs about $25,000.
