Nov 09, 2018

What makes this Nissan’s sporty SUV in demand?

The first time I laid my eyes on the solar yellow Nissan Juke traversing the highway towards the South, I just fell in love with it. It’s like a breath of fresh air – like in a pool of SUVs where everyone just looks the same, or nearly similar, Nissan Juke surely stands out. It exudes a sportier look with a unique design like it’s a crossbreed between a sports car and SUV. Angst and class all at the same time. Who wouldn’t fall in love with this vehicle?

With its extraordinary good looks, who wouldn't turn their heads upon seeing Nissan Juke on the road?

According to the latest car news, the Nissan Juke has reached its one-millionth unit in Sunderland, the United Kingdom where one unit is built every 105 seconds.

The one-millionth unit was a Tekna grade, Vivid Blue in color. The Nissan Juke was just the second Nissan crossover built in Sunderland, right after the Nissan Qashqai back in 2006.

It is not surprising that Nissan Juke has reached its one-millionth unit produced in Sunderland

Reaching one million units is quite heavy to boast. A car won’t reach this number of production unless the car is a hit not only to its target market but also to those who were not much into bigger vehicles but got convinced to buy this vehicle. There must be something in Nissan Juke 2018 (besides its dashing good looks) that makes it dear to people.

Since this car is also available in the Philippines, it would be nice to see the features that this vehicle has to offer to its potential car buyers. It sure is good to stand out among other vehicles physically, but its way better to have other features that can provide comfort, convenience and safety to its passengers.

We, at, would like to give you all the information you need about this breathtaking car, in case you’re looking to upgrade to something bigger.
