Nissan Juke scores poorly for fuel consumption in Which? survey

The Nissan Juke scored poorly in fuel consumption tests on 1,600 makes and models by consumer group Which?

The Nissan Juke scored badly (Picture: PA)
It's marketed as the trendy runaround that looks like a cross between a supermini and an off-roader.

But the Juke's 34.9 miles per gallon was less than half of the
most efficient supermini, the Polo Bluemotion, which produced 74.3mpg.
Which? tested official miles-per-gallon figures using typical British
road conditions, which are ignored in official EU figures.

These included stop-start traffic, cold-engine starts and on various road surfaces.

It found wide gaps in performance between the so-called economic superminis and family runarounds.

Which? said it hoped its tests would give drivers a more
realistic idea of how often they would really need to fill up at the
pumps.

'Ever strived to match the manufacturer's claimed mpg figures in your car and not been able to?' a spokesman said.

'That's because the official numbers doesn't reflect everyday driving scenarios.

'Our real-world mpg test does - and that makes it a more accurate measurement.'Read more: http://www.metro.co.uk/news/912964-nissan-juke-scores-poorly-for-fuel-consumption-in-which-survey#ixzz27KTK6cfU

It's all a nonsense if you ask me. Anyone with half a brain doesn't believe the manufacturers figures (not that that's right) and the Juke never pretended to be a frugal choice.The article I read in the Metro said it was a 'Juke DIG-T (Diesel)'. Now the journalists can't even copy and paste a report someone else has written!

Reading my post again it sounded a bit angry. Sorry for that! I stand by it with the exception of the 'half a brain' comment - that was a stupid thing for me to say as people don't expect to be lied to and I think car manufacturers are guilty of manipulating the figures on this count.It's a bit like BHP figures are taken from the flywheel when the engine is on a bench and not at the driving wheels after all the losses from the transmission. And like the 0-62 times are (for some vehicles) manipulated by gearing to impress on paper rather than make the car best usable in the real world.
