Do they actually change the power output or economy or simply change the throttle response?I suspect it's only the throttle response making it easier to drive fast or economical. Flat out in all modes feels the same, driving economically get about the same result in all modes.

Sport stiffens up the ride significantly and the car is much more responsive to drive.
It makes no difference at all to fuel economy except perhaps you tend towards "lead foot" much more...

It doesn't do anything to suspension. The Juke doesn't have active suspension. It's just alters throttle response and steering weight and the gear change in autos.

They may have done something like a bit more boost and fuel in sport mode, and less so in eco. Sounds like it's more of a gimmick than something you'd use on a day to day basis.

There is a slight difference in throttle response but yes, it's a gimmick.

Gimmick ? No chance.
The steering change and throttle response make the sport mode fast driving much more exciting if you don't leave it on all the time, the difference seems huge.
In eco mode, there's a reduction in the air con (saving fuel slightly) but the big difference is how the car accelerates more gently when using cruise control, making a smoother and cheaper journey..

I love it !

I always say that Sport mode is how the car should be and the others just dull it down. Ours is never out of Sport as it feels like you're towing a caravan in Eco mode and normal is boring too.That said, although this is as yet untried, I think Eco mode might be useful in snow and mud as it reduces the throttle response and means you are less likely to get wheel spin when pulling away.

That's a good point - might try that if we get snow.

I love the sport mode. Especially on B roads. Recently went to Southern Ireland. The Wicklow Mountain roads were fantastic fun ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ—ป๐Ÿ—ป๐Ÿ—ป๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿš˜
