nissan juke design influence revealed

Whether you are as “infatuated” with the Nissan Juke as Diego Rodriguez of Metacool or not, you have to admit the guy has found an unlikely yet apt comparison for the saucy Nissan. The Saab faithful might be a bit taken aback by the comparison, but the Juke’s wacky look is probably closer to the spirit of the 96 than Saab’s latest design “effort.” Still, put an updated 96 body on the Juke’s platform, and you’d quickly have this Saab skeptic’s attention. Surf on over for the full comparison. [Hat Tip: Michael Banovsky]

    Well, it was past time for the weekly? semimonthly? TTAC Saab Slam. This was as good an excuse as any, even if the self-confessed "Saab skeptic" had to work on a 50 year old model design to do it.

    I have only seen the juke on tv commercials and they never did show a good view of it. Now I see why. Dang it's ugly!

    The Saab, while ugly, is FAR better looking than the Nissan. The Juke looks like a Kia Soul that got humped by a pug. It's one of the ugliest vehicles of all time. The Juke makes the Pontiac Aztek look positively beautiful.

    The more people bash on this thing the more I want it. It's going to bring me joy as people watch me drive by them and say, "God that is the most hideous thing!" Picking mine up in a week and a half!!!
