The Nissan Juke subcompact SUV, taken from the word jukebox, was discontinued for the American automotive market after its 2017 model year. After that, it was replaced by the stylish, yet not as obnoxious, Nissan Kicks. Still, the Juke lives on in overseas markets and forever in our hearts. 

Introduced in 2009 for the 2010 model year, the Nissan Juke, if nothing else, drew a lot of attention for its tremendously odd style. With a bulbous front and back end, very round and expanded, and turning signals halfway up its hood, the model left quite an impression, leading to positive and negative comparisons to the infamous failure of the Pontiac Aztek.

Nowadays, you’ll only see used Nissan Juke models on the road, though a second-generation Juke is still selling strong overseas, albeit with its aggressive style turned down a bit. Still, the legend of the Nissan Juke will live on in automotive history.
