Nissan Juke fuel consumption in Kenya


The price of petrol fluctuates depending on social conditions and other factors, and has a direct impact on household budgets. Even a small difference in the fuel consumption of a car that will be used for a long time will add up to a large difference, so it is important to check the fuel efficiency when choosing a car.

Here, we will introduce the fuel consumption of Nissan “Juke”.


Fuel economy characteristics of Juke

Juke is a model that can be said to be the pioneer of compact crossover SUV that appeared in June 2010. After repeated minor changes, it now has two engines: a 1.5L in-line 4-cylinder NA engine that produces a maximum output of 114ps and a 1.6L in-line 4-cylinder turbo engine that produces a maximum output of 190ps.

The 1.5L engine adopts a variable valve timing mechanism to improve intake and exhaust efficiency, and is equipped with a dual injector that stabilizes thermal efficiency. In addition, we are working to improve actual fuel efficiency by installing an idling stop mechanism that reduces petrol consumption by stopping the engine when waiting for traffic lights.

The 1.6L turbo engine is equipped with a DIG (direct injection petrol) mechanism to improve the charging efficiency and combustion efficiency of the engine. In addition, by adopting a low-pressure cooled EGR (exhaust gas recirculation), reducing friction resistance of each part, and improving combustion efficiency, we have achieved improved fuel efficiency.

Juke Catalog Fuel Efficiency

Juke’s JC08 mode catalog fuel efficiency is as follows.

・1.5LNA engine car (2WD only) 18.0km/L
・1.6 turbo engine car (2WD) 14.2km/L
・1.6 turbo engine car (4WD) 13.4km/L (NISMO RS only 12.6km/L)

Compare the catalog fuel economy of Juke and rival cars

One way to check fuel efficiency is to compare it with that of rival vehicles in the same class. Here, let’s compare two models, Toyota “C-HR” and Honda “Vezel”.

Toyota “C-HR”

The C-HR is popular for its stylish exterior design and high driving performance that has been honed on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It is a blockbuster model that can be said to be the driving force behind the popularity of SUVs.

The C-HR JC08 mode catalog fuel economy is 15.2-16.4km/L for petrol 2WD vehicles, 15.4km/L for 4WD vehicles, and 29.0-30.4km/L for hybrid vehicles (2WD only).

Comparing petrol cars, Juke’s 1.5LNA engine car has better fuel economy than C-HR, but the turbo car is slightly lower than C-HR. In addition, the C-HR hybrid vehicle achieves low fuel consumption that can be said to be Toyota, which has a good reputation for hybrids.

Honda “Vezel”

Vezel is a model that features a spacious interior despite its compact body, and has a good reputation for the comfort of the rear seats.

Vezel’s JC08 mode catalog fuel economy is 20.2-21.2km/L for NA engine 2WD vehicles, 19.6km/L for 4WD vehicles, 17.6km/L for turbo engine 2WD vehicles, 23.4-27.0km/L for hybrid 2WD vehicles, and 4WD vehicles. is 21.6-23.2km/L.

Like the C-HR, the Vezel also has a hybrid vehicle, so it achieves considerable fuel efficiency. In comparing Juke petrol vehicles and Vezel petrol vehicles, Vezel’s numerical values ​​exceeded Juke’s for both NA and turbo engines.

Juke actual fuel consumption

When checking the fuel efficiency performance, let’s check the actual fuel efficiency in addition to the catalog fuel efficiency. This is because in most cases there is a difference between the catalog fuel consumption and the actual fuel consumption.

JC08 mode fuel efficiency is measured under certain conditions on a flat, straight road without using lights or air conditioners, and is used as an indicator.

However, in daily life, driving on slopes, unpaved roads, and various other places creates a difference between the cataloged fuel consumption and the actual fuel consumption of any car.

The actual fuel consumption varies depending on the road surface condition and driving method, but it is said that the actual fuel consumption is about 30% lower on average. Currently, according to the site “e fuel consumption” that collects the actual fuel consumption data of the owner who is riding the Juke, the actual fuel consumption of the Juke is 13.61km / L for the NA engine 2WD vehicle, 13.37km / L for the turbo engine 2WD vehicle, 4WD vehicle is 9.49km/L.

The difference between the catalog fuel consumption of the Juke and the actual fuel consumption is within 30%, and it can be said that the difference between the catalog fuel consumption of the Juke and the actual fuel consumption is small.

Juke driving performance

Let’s take a look at the part related to driving performance, which can be said to be the duty of the car.

Optimized platform achieves excellent handling stability

The Juke uses the “B-platform” jointly developed by Renault and Nissan for the first time, and by optimizing its structure and layout for the Juke, it achieves light weight and high rigidity. In addition, by improving the wheel house and making it compatible with 215/55R17 large diameter wide tires, we have obtained excellent steering stability.

Comfortable ride with refined suspension

Straight line stability and cornering performance are improved by increasing the rigidity of the front and rear suspensions and adopting high-performance shock absorbers. In addition, by reducing road noise and vibration, it provides a comfortable ride and improves interior quietness.

When checking fuel consumption, do not forget to check the actual fuel consumption

It’s been nearly 10 years since the Juke debuted, so the fuel efficiency performance is slightly inferior compared to rival vehicles, such as the lack of a hybrid model, but the difference between the catalog fuel efficiency and the actual fuel efficiency is small. It’s a possible point.

We recommend that you check the fuel efficiency performance, which is an important point in choosing a car, from various aspects, such as comparing fuel efficiency with rival cars and actual fuel efficiency, not just catalog fuel efficiency.
