This UK-favourite is good to drive and spacious, so it’s easy to see the appeal. However, if the Juke doesn’t quite do it for you, here are 10 alternative cars that might be up your street.
The 10-best Nissan Juke alternatives
- Peugeot 2008
- VW T-Cross
- Renault Captur
- Skoda Kamiq
- Citroen C3 Aircross
- Ford Puma
- Vauxhall Mokka
- Dacia Duster
- Fiat 500X
- Kia XCeed
1. Peugeot 2008
It’s more expensive than the Juke with a starting RRP of £23,900 but does eclipse it in terms of quality and technology.
For the sweet spot of the range, take a look at the 130hp 1.2-litre model in GT trim.
Starting RRP: £23,900*
carwow average saving: £2,255*
2. Volkswagen T-Cross
Despite its dinky stature, the Volkswagen T-Cross is quite spacious inside for passengers. Like a Tardis, if you want a worn-out cliche.
Its boot offers a respectable 385 litres of space, but that’s equipped by the Juke’s huge 422 litres.
That said, the T-Cross comes with sliding seats as standard to make the most of that room. Plus its squarer boot entry makes it easier to get stuff in.
Starting RRP: £21,430*
carwow average saving: £1,226*
3. Renault Captur
If the Nissan Juke’s eye-catching looks appeal, the Renault Captur might tick a few boxes for you too.
This sleek-looking SUV does well to stand out from the crowd, which is backed up with decent interior space and a selection of good engines.
It matches the Nissan Juke’s boot space of 422 litres too, though you can slide the rear seats forward for up to 536 litres.
Starting RRP: £21,190*
carwow average saving: £3,697*
4. Skoda Kamiq
As its marketing would lead you to believe, the Skoda Kamiq is ‘simply clever’. It offers bags of space, plenty of tech and without much fuss.
That contrasts with the comparatively outlandish-looking Nissan Juke though, so the trade-off in style will come down to personal preference.
The Kamiq is mechanically similar to the VW T-Cross and mimics that SUV’s squared-off boot entry which makes loading a breeze.
Starting RRP: £19,740*
carwow average saving: £1,747*
5. Citroen C3 Aircross
If comfort is your main concern, the Citroen C3 Aircross is worth a look.
With soft-set suspension and super-comfy seats, the C3 Aircross is one of the best small SUVs to spend a lot of time in. Unless you’re an adult in the back row — which can feel cramped.
Boot space is fixed at 380 litres too, so you won’t get as much stuff in as you could a Juke,
Starting RRP: £20,415*
carwow average saving: £1,900*
6. Ford Puma
The Fiesta-based Ford Puma eclipses any SUV of its size for driving fun. Despite its tall stature, it feels quite nimble through corners.
That translates to an effortless town-driving experience too. That said, it’s not all that comfy and the driving position is quite low — which may detract from its appeal if you want a high-riding SUV.
Although you can get a Ford Puma ST if you want a performance car that you can sell to your partner as a family SUV…
Starting RRP: £23,145*
carwow average saving: £2,031*
7. Vauxhall Mokka
With its recent reinvention, the Vauxhall Mokka has become one of the most stylish SUVs on the market. It certainly gives the Nissan Juke a run for its money in the abstract design stakes.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t match duller-looking options’ practicality. Its boot is only 350 litres — not a patch on the class leaders — and space in the rear row is tight.
That said, there’s a decent amount of space in the front and the seats are super comfy.
Starting RRP: £21,835*
carwow average saving: £1,840*
8. Dacia Duster
If you’re on a budget, the Dacia Duster is worth a look. It’s considerably cheaper than any alternatives — Juke included — with a starting RRP of £14,495.
That said, it comes at a compromise in equipment and quality. Its low safety score lets it down, too.
But for an affordable way to get into a high-riding and spacious SUV, it’s hard to match.
Starting RRP: £14,495*
carwow average saving: £505*
9. Fiat 500X
This takes the classic looks of the 500 and offers more boot space plus easier access to the rear seats thanks to its extra set of doors.
It’s still not all that spacious compared with other SUVs however, especially with its 350-litre boot.
Starting RRP: £20,885*
carwow average saving: £1,405*
10. Kia XCeed
Its eye-catching looks give it its own identity, while a strong selection of engines and a good level of equipment offers a lot of appeal.
It rides harshly compared with other SUVs though, and space in the rear row is pretty limited.
Starting RRP: £21,255*
carwow average saving: £2,059*
