1: Nissan Juke
Finally, we’ve come to the Nissan Juke, a car that needs no introduction. The bug-eyed Nissan was supposed to reinvigorate the lineup but it didn’t do any such thing. The Juke was unlike anything else that was on the market at the time. The tiny styling of the car was reminiscent of a crossover SUV in a much smaller package (via EVO).
Nissan was attempting to attract a younger customer base with the Juke. Unlike the Kia Soul and other competitors, the Juke managed to cultivate a cult-like following. But as time went on, consumers moved onto other vehicles in the same segment. The Juke somehow continued on without a major refresh and it was ultimately discontinued.
