More horsepower and better fuel economy in the base model Juke

If you look at the base models of the 2017 Juke and 2017 Soul, you can see a few key differences immediately. The Juke gets an estimated 28 city and 32 highway miles per gallon, beating both transmission options of the base Soul. You would think that kind of fuel efficiency might come at the expense of horsepower, but that is just not the case with the Juke, which packs an engine capable of doling out 188 horsepower (a number that jumps to 215 in the NISMO RS trim). The 188 horsepower significantly beats out the 130 horsepower offered by the base Soul.

Safety is also a major priority these days, especially as roads get busier and more crowded. That’s why the 2017 Juke comes standard with a rear view camera in order to help give you eyes in the back of your head while you are in reverse. This feature is not standard on the Soul.

With the 2017 Juke, you have a choice of five different models, each offering a unique spin on this eye-catching vehicle. It has fun and character to spare, something special that stands out from the crowd. You might say it is actually the Juke that truly has soul.
