Debuts at the 2010 New York Auto Show
2011 Nissan JukeIf the Local Motors Rally Fighter were to go mainstream, it could take the form of this perky Nissan. Other than a comparison to that desert sand racer, were not sure what the Juke is supposed to be. Like the Mini Countryman, its certainly not boring.
A turbocharged, direct-injection four-cylinder pumps out 180 horsepower from just 1.6 liters, and optional all-wheel-drive can shift torque from left to right on either axle. Like the Cube, the Juke is a polarizing conversation starter, a clear win of form over any sort of function.
