The photos and videos shown here may be of a different model, model year or body type from the one selected. The ratings of one vehicle often apply to other models if they are built on the same platform. In addition, a test of a vehicle from one model year may apply to earlier or later model years if the vehicle hasn't been significantly redesigned.

Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Nissan Juke was introduced in the 2011 model year.

Structure

The driver's space was seriously compromised by intruding structure. Lower interior intrusion measured as much as 37 cm at the lower hinge pillar, and the door sill was pushed in laterally 19 cm toward the driver. Upper interior intrusion measured 24-27 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel. The steering column was pushed back 10 cm.

Injury measures

Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the left lower leg would be likely in a crash of this severity and injuries to the left knee would be possible.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side as the steering column moved 17 cm to the right, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure and allowing little airbag cushioning for the chest. The side curtain airbag deployed but does not have sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with forward side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag deployed.

Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Nissan Juke was introduced in the 2011 model year and is derived from the Nissan Versa. Two tests of the Juke were conducted, one by the Institute and the other by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification. Ratings are based on both tests.

Injury measures

In each test, measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled in both tests. The driver side curtain and side torso airbags deployed during both crashes. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head contacted the side curtain airbag and the dummy rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof and a side airbag that deployed from the seat.

Passenger — The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.

Roof strength test ratings can be compared across vehicle categories.

In the test, the strength of the roof is determined by pushing a metal plate against one side of it at a slow but constant speed. The force applied relative to the vehicle's weight is known as the strength-to-weight ratio. This graph shows how the ratio varied as the test of this vehicle progressed. The peak strength-to-weight ratio recorded at any time before the roof is crushed 5 inches is the key measurement of roof strength.

A good rating requires a strength-to-weight ratio of at least 4. In other words, the roof must withstand a force of at least 4 times the vehicle's weight before the plate crushes the roof by 5 inches. For an acceptable rating, the minimum required strength-to-weight ratio is 3.25. For a marginal rating, it is 2.5. Anything lower than that is poor.
