A car with the X factor! Nissan Juke is a winner at the 2023 Used Car Awards

The Nissan Juke has been named ‘Used Small Car of the Year’ by respected motor trade title Car Dealer Magazine.

The accolade was given to the iconic compact crossover at the 2023 Used Car Awards, organised by the magazine and held each year at The Brewery in East London.

Juke won praise for its eye-catching, individual styling, great levels of technology plus generous cargo space and roomy interior. Judges also highlighted its versatility, comfort and safety, making it a go-to option for thousands of used car dealers and buyers across the UK.

James Baggott, editor-in-chief of Car Dealer Magazine, said: ‘‘Used car dealers love the Juke as there’s always a customer for one. Although a small car, it has a certain X-factor that buyers love.

‘‘The second-generation model added a lot more substance to the original car’s daring design, such as a more spacious interior, thereby making it easier to sell.

‘‘Making a small car desirable is an easy thing to do, but making one that appeals to the used car buyer is tough. The Juke succeeds at both – and that’s impressive.’’

TV presenter Mike Brewer, Used Car Awards host, said: ‘‘The Nissan Juke broke new ground when it launched – it looked like nothing else on the road, and you can still say the same! Some funky designs age badly, but not the Juke’s.

‘‘Not only do I like the way the car looks but, as a used car dealer myself, I love the variety that’s available – there are loads of trim levels and special editions. It’s easy to park, cost-efficient to run and looks good on any used car dealer’s forecourt. It’s a real winner in my book.’’

Helen Marshall, Passenger Car Category Manager at Nissan said: ‘‘Naturally, we’re delighted to win this award – we’re tremendously proud of Juke. Quite simply, it’s a great car and has been a key member of our line-up for over a decade now.

‘‘It’s very pleasing to note that it’s so popular with used car dealers and buyers. Long may its success continue!’’

The Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards have been celebrating the top operators in the UK’s used car industry since 2012, rewarding manufacturers, car dealerships, workshops, and exceptional people working in the sector.

Thousands of car retailers, plus MOT testing stations and workshops, enter the awards each year – and a rigorous judging process and mystery shopping exercise takes place before the gongs are handed out to the deserving winners.
