Which Juke would you buy today?

Post by jukehunter » Thu Sep 27, 2018 3:00 pm

Hi All,

Just joined the forum as need some help....currently have a Mazda 6 and decided next car is going to be a nearly new Juke Tekna (64 plate onwards) but confused as to which engine.

I do 13k-15k miles per year (mainly motorway) so the obvious answer would be DCI, however with the tougher diesel emissions MOT test and government trying to ban diesels I am thinking whether it would be better sticking to a petrol that would have some re-sale value in couple of years.

If you were in my position today, what would you do?

Thanks in advance.

JH

I have a Tekna 1.6 petrol 2012 plate.
I find it fairly noisy on the motorway and at 70 mph the engine feels it overworking though the rev counter shows it's within the range expected at that speed.
Would I buy it again ? Yes, petrol consumption is good and it's nice to drive.
My advice would be to get a test drive and include a short trip on the motorway.

Diesel would still be best for now. I'd still choose that as the road tax is also cheaper, £20 vs £135 for petrol.

What kind of mpg do you get with the petrol?

I visited my local Nissan earlier in the week and they only had the 1.2 to test drive (diesels were nowhere to be seen). I found the 1.2 comfortable to drive but could see it consuming significant fuel on my daily motorway commute.

This was my line of thinking. However, I wonder how long that £20 will remain. :?

Is that because it will be worth next to nothing in a few years time?

Unless they double the price of diesel then it'll still be cheaper to run a diesel.

The tank is pretty small, it must be a pain to fill the petrol do often.
