The latest insurance ratings for the Nissan Juke, alongside RV figures just released from CAP, mean the cost of owning Nissan’s new crossover are looking good value for money indeed.
Positioning itself against the Mini and Alfa Romeo Mito, the Juke should be worth in around 54% of it’s new value providing you average 10,000 miles per annum over a 3 year period.
54% doesn’t sound a lot but is still way better than its core competiton .i.e the Mini (inc Countryman in this) and 207. And it’s still only 1 point behind the Audi A1.
Still this is all speculative but shows that Nissan intend to rely on bread and butter sales in the private sector as opposed to mass fleet deals, which always undermine the values slightly.
Insurance wise the Juke again seems to offer decent value for money with the 1.6 petrol and 1.5 dCi diesel models coming in at 11 and 13E, the latter being the higher spec Acenta and Tekna.
The high performance DIG-T turbo engines in both 2 and 4 wheel drive are rated at 19 and 20E respectively. Again still comparable with the Cooper S and Alfa Cloverleaf hot hatches.
Strong residuals, competitive insurance ratings and all backed by a decent 3 year warranty should go some way into tempting buyers into the weird and wonderful world of crossover SUV’s.
