2014 Nissan Juke vs. 2015 Subaru Forester Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Forester than in the Nissan Juke, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Forester will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Juke.

Convenience
With the Subaru Forester, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Juke, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Juke will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Forester. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Nissan Juke will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Subaru Forester.

Dimensions
The Nissan Juke is a little narrower than the Subaru Forester, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Nissan Juke, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Forester.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Nissan Juke and the Subaru Forester are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Nissan Juke has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Forester, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Nissan Juke has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Forester.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Nissan Juke and the Subaru Forester. The Nissan Juke has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Forester.

Warranty
The Nissan Juke comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Forester.
