2012 Nissan Juke is a marvelous car from the house of Nissan which is equipped with fabulous features. Vice President and General Manager of Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. Al Castignetti said, “Nissan has always been a company willing to stretch the envelope, to combine seemingly contradictory principles and make it work – such as ‘affordable’ and ‘performance’ to create the original Z(R), or ‘small footprint’ and ‘big interior’ in the current Nissan cube.

JUKE is about to shake up the market with a boldness, style and sense of fun that it has never seen before – at a time when segment sales are expanding with buyers looking for just such a combination.”
