INTERIOR

As fun as the exterior of the Juke is, it's only the beginning. The interior has just as good a time. It's utilitarian but full of technological features.

My favorite feature in the five-seater is the optional I-CON system, a climate control panel that switches to a driving mode panel with the push of a button. Buttons that are labeled A/C, off and other fan settings magically change to read, Normal, Sport, Eco and other driving-oriented commands after the D-Mode button is pushed. My test car also had optional heated front seats and a navigation system ($800).

The rally-inspired design continues inside, with shiny accent pieces on the door and around the gearshift. The front seats are comfortable and bolstered to support the rally driver in you. If you have additional passengers in the back, you'll be pleased to know there's some legroom for them, but not a lot.

The trunk space is about what you'd expect, if you're not expecting much. Warehouse club trips will likely require creative seat folding, so the 60/40-split folding backseat will help in that department. There is also under-floor storage in the cargo area. The small cargo area is a good reason the Juke would make a fun second car.
