Nissan juke miles per gallon


Recommended Posts

Thinking of changing my car to a nissan juke,its got better ride height then my hyundi i20,the one i have been looking at is a 1.2 litre petrol three pot engine,the reveiws i have been reading are mixed some say they are good on fuel others say they can be heavy,if anyone has the 1.2 litre any feed back would be appreciated.

Auntie and uncle had one, boot was tiny and the car was far too small inside for how chunky they look outside. That wasn't good on fuel, main reason they got rid of it. They were very sedate drivers. Think nun driving and that's them.

Iv'e just bought a 2 yr old auto 1600cc Juke and i'm happy with it.  But it is a bit juicy, small boot, not a lot of room inside but enough for me. Yes they are funny looking things

but there are plenty of them on the road so they cant be all that bad. After driving a Vauxhall combo van for 8 yrs its lts like driving a Rolls Royce.

I can see me keeping it for a while.

Test drove the susuki vitara today took it on the motor way and came back along b roads,it was avaraging 53.4 miles to the gallon with a 1.6 petrol engine and to b fair a joy to drive,so looks like the deal will b done,the salesman has the 1.4 boosterjet engine he reckons he gets about 40 out of his,proberbly better peformance but i want better mpg,its fast enough for me allright.

Most makers now have the option of a small engine with a big turbo and a clever ECU. They can perform like a much bigger engine and they can also return excellent mpg but they don't do both at the same time. IOW, depending on your driving pattern you can have good economy or good performance. That's true for every internal combustion engine but it's much more marked with the snappy little turbo units which have a very small operating envelope for good mpg. Suzuki share some technology with Mazda and the latest non turbo, larger capacity engines can return high mpg figures without having to drive like old Mrs Scoggins and they're also much less stressed so potentially longer lasting as well.

you'll be in traffic half the time anyway.

I drove home from work at midnight last Night, down the M6, an absolute pleasure very little traffic or nutters about. And people wonder why i work shifts 😄😄
