what s wrong with this picture the juke s on you edition

Nissan stumbles into Scion territory with this teaser image of its new compact crossover, the Juke, to be built in Britain starting this year. The Juke is supposed to bridge the gap between the Qashqai (Rogue) soft-roader and the Note compact MPV. Because someone, somewhere wants a compact crossover with less capability than a Rogue and less rear visibility than a Note. The hunt for that confused consumer is now officially on.

    Isn't this just an unspectacular ICE version of Leaf? It seems like the same monocoque at least... http://www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/#/car/intro

    It's only the low angle of the front fascia that bothers me. We'll see more of it in the light, but in that photo a more snub nose would've looked better.

    Aside from the schizophrenic lighting treatment in the front, I'm not sure if I hate this. Have to see some other pics.

    http://www.nissanusa.com/juke/ Visit the Site!! I was browsing Nissan's site, and after I saw the Juke, I decided to see what additional thoughts were on here. One the image you have posted, is not very good.. do check out the nissan site for more inside & out pix).. This car is awesome! I can not wait till it arrives in the US! The interior is stunning, the console area looks like they parked a motor bike.. but as odd as that sounds it is so unique I love it! the dash is uncluttered, and logical.. love the nav-system layout! the exterior looks more like it is a street legal dune buggy. It has a high stance, with a squatty appearance. Again I like what I am seeing.. definitely an interesting & beautiful vehicle.. a wonderful switch from what floods the market now. Other notes about the appearance.. the tail end received some inspiration from the Nissan Z.. you will see that in the taill lights. Again, I like what I see,and I want to see more of it!
