Nissan Juke owner looking to make the switch.

Hey everyone, as the title says, I'm a current owner of a 2016 Nissan Juke Stinger. I probably would never know the CH-R existed had Toyota not advertised it when I went to see a movie a few weeks ago. Granted I would have seen it on the road eventually but never would have discovered all of the cool little features it has.

I love how unique the Juke looks however it's severely lacking in technology that comes standard on the CH-R, not to mention 2018 will likely be the final year Nissan makes these cars. I'll hopefully make the switch before the year is up and I'll be the proud owner of a 2017/18 CH-R

Didn't those Jukes also suffer from the typical reliability problems Nissans have?

Its those reliability issues that kept me away to be honest. But the only pull factor was the Nismo Juke.

How can you say no to this ...

I'll have to admit, as odd as those Jukes are to me, definitely can't argue with that Nismo version. The Stinger is pretty cool as well though, looks much better than a base model obviously.

But welcome to the forums, have you gotten to test drive a C-HR to see if at least the performance is on par with the Juke? I've been hearing a lot of back and forth on it.

went for a short test drive with a few other customers and a sales rep, when it was my turn to drive I was impressed with how well it cornered which makes you question how CUV-like did they intend for it to be. to me, its more of a sporty hatch.

Now that's actually really great to hear as I like to get a little spirited around corners. How was off the line speed and overtaking speed?

I haven't gotten a chance to test drive a C-HR yet but the Juke has a good 40 or so HP over the HR not to mention it weighs about 100lb less so I imagine the difference would be noticeable. I don't plan on racing a crossover so it shouldn't be a big deal to me personally, I will however miss the turbo spool on the Juke.

I think the main thing that made the Juke models flop was they essentially created a new type of vehicle for a market that doesn't exist. Nissan calls the Juke a "sport cross", it's smaller than the average crossover but slightly larger than a coupe so yea, the interior is pretty **** cramped. I only bought it because I loved how unique it looks, especially the Stinger. Would have gotten a Nismo but there weren't any being sold anywhere near me lol.


As far as off the line and overtaking speed, in sport mode it's pretty peppy. I can also overtake cars on the highway pretty easily but it has to be in sport mode, normal mode will make the motor sound like it's struggling to get over a hill and eco mode...lmao.

Reliability issues with Nissan in general is news to me. As far as the Juke goes, there has been a few issues reported with the CVT such as overheating. The only issue I've had was the CVT not shifting when it's supposed to in auto mode; the rpm's would just keep going up until I release and depress the gas pedal like I'm driving a traditional manual.

So you can already tell from now that it'll be lacking, which is a good to go in expecting and who knows, it may surprise you a little? Hopefully..?

Definitely not a race car or anything but just having the feeling of performance lacking from a product is a big pet peeve of mine. Noticeable off the line or when trying to overtake on the highway especially.
