Pretty much my thoughts on the similarity front. If I have to make it simple, I see a FROG GRINNING !

It took some time to digest what I saw in the pics ! Man..what a creation ! FUNKY is the right word. And 0-100 in 6.2 s !!! Awesome dude. Could you post some spec details as well? Feeling lazy to check it on web. And whats the price of this?

Congratulations and Wish you miles of happy and safe driving !

I had seen early pics of the juke a long while back, but this is the first time
I see a pic of one on the roads. It does look.err.umm.different.The front
looks like a VW new beetle but for the quirky top (headlights?).

IIRC Nissan has launched this as a small SUV and not a car.Kind of little brother of the Rogue, which itself is a little brother of the Murano..
Congrats on your new juke-box and have fun!Dare I say, it is the perfect antithesis of the box. Wonder why I called it jukebox.

My first reaction was "What the heck is it".
But I like it, should be a micro SUV and not a hatchback. Can you post some pics from the rear with the hatch open. Guess it doesn't have much space behind the rear seats.

Is it not available in MT?

Congrats on the new car.

As already stated by someone, the rear 3 quarter looks funky but the front does take some getting used.

But the power is crazy. 187 from 1.6L Turbo . Does this run on normal petrol or high octane?

Hi Mathranik,

Its kind of OOOOO at the first look at it, but after seeing it for some more time, i find this design really interesting.. Congrats on your buy.. It would definetly sell in US, but in INDIA, it would be doubtfull even if it comes.. When i got my beat, many people critisized me for getting that vehicle, just because of it design, woundering what people would talk if something like this comes here..

Congrats on the new car. I don't know why does the car remind of a Rhino's head , maybe from stance on that linky. That said it looks funky and has some jaw dropping GC.

Congrats ! it looks kind of funky & some out of the box thinking by Nissan, i would buy one for sure, considering all the equipment on offer

Could not understand which are the headlights ? or are they the fog lamps ?
The back is simply too good, the front unconventional, but not too bad !

Wow...I like the way it looks. Design is funky and fresh. Its a crossover right??
Looks like smaller version of Murano.

I think the big and round ones are the headlights and fogs are extreme 2 on the lower bumper and turn indicators on the bonnet.

Congrats, it indeed is a different looking car and sure to turn heads. But, seems like during the time period of the shortlisted vehicle and actual choice the priorities have completely changed. Hence, this choice.

It would take a lot for me to ignore the Camaro and Mustang to choose this funky little car.

Btw, whats the landing price?

The interesting part of this car is its radical lights from front to rear, superb looking HU and front stance along with great interiors. I find nothing wrong with this power bug. I really looks nice and different from rest on road. I should say it is most stylish radical hatch I have ever seen. Also i wonder when we get these type of ultra mordern interiors in our indian hatches?

Thank you style, definitely, is a subjective matter. Believe it or not, Camaro was voted to be one of the top 5 ugliest vehicles of all times! It's one of my favorites though/

Nice description. Very very creative!! lol

Congrats and wishing you many happy miles :-), we need more pics!
Thanks a lot. More pics coming up tomorrow.

What a funky little car this! The Juke doesn't look bad at all! Yes the styling is sort of in-your-face, but there is nothing wrong with that! The automotive world needs cars like this. One can't expect every car to look sedate and just the same! That would be rather sad.

I see some overtones of the Nissan 370Z in the Jukes design. the lights at the back are similarly designed. There is a bit of Qashqai in it as well. A great little lifestyle car, this. I bet it's nippy as well! 187 horses in a small car is a lot and can be a handful at times!

What's the drivetrain? It should have full-time all-wheel-drive if I'm not wrong? Or is it FWD?
The inspiration from 370Z seems very obvious. Infact Nissan says that the bottom half is from the Z and the top half from a cross-over! I love the dynamics of the car - it's a great handler.

Its a 1.6 L turbocharged engine, churning out 188 horses. It's mated to a 6-speed automatic, in my case. And yes, its an AWD.

That car is indeed very special for making you change your mind and get chosen over that list of yours.
Guess the Camaro would be my next car. I didn't really like the Mustange V6 after the testdrive, and the GT was out of my budget. This fit the bill perfectly. The turbo boost compensates for the styling loss over Camaro.

From some angles, it does look like a Swift that has been hitting the gym. The styling is quirky, but I like it.
Thanks buddy.

Turbocharged 188bhp engine, with 177 lb.ft of torque. All under 5500 rpm. It cost me 24k, all inclusive.

Expect more pictures tomorrow. It has decent boot space, and under-floor storage.
It's available in 6 speed MT.

It prefers to sip the high octane (recommended). Crazy acceleration.

The round ones are the headlamps - they say it's rally car inspired, from the 60s.

For me, with the options, it was 24k. Camaro is my next car.
