They are indeed different. We live next door to France on our little island and while the French are exquisite stylists, they are not red hot at engineering and the Juke has too much Renault content for my liking. They are renowned chef’s too but I prefer my food mainly dead if thats OK.

is the JUKE a shared platform with the Renault? I know the CEO of Nissan Ghosn (spelling) is in charge of both companies, not sure if this is still the case?

Yes, the current Nissan SUV range is shared with most of the Renault range. I believe the car was originally designed in the UK but they build everything with a view to sharing Renault drivetrains. Your version might be produced in Japan and with no diesel engines, you might be safe!

Coming from Juke to CX-3

I traded my 2013 Juke FWD for my 2017 CX-3 FWD, so I'm happy to share some of my comparisons of the two:

- Juke has a 1.6 L turbo 4 and is faster than CX-3. This comes at the price of premium fuel vs. regular for the CX-3. I drove the Juke in ECO mode most of the time, and I hardly notice the difference. CX-3's engine and transmission work well together
- Mileage is supposed to be a lot better in the CX-3 on that regular fuel. Thus far my CX-3 has disappointed me and averages about the same as the Juke ~28MPG (mixed city and highway)
- Juke's interior and connectivity features are dated by at least 10-15 years. A USB port, back up cam, etc. were hard to come by on the 2013 models
- Juke's cloth seats, however, are top notch material. Soft and comfy unlike the hot, easily-damaged 'leatherette' found on CX-3 Touring +
- CX-3 (believe it or not!) has slightly more trunk capacity than Juke. This is largely due to Juke's 'bubble' design in the rear
- Juke has better ground clearance, less-expensive tires, and more off-road capability (albeit not by much--it's on a Versa chassis)
- CX-3's 6-speed works well with the 146 HP 4 cyl. Juke's CVT also works well. Both are great different products that do their job well. Juke has been known to shred that relatively weak CVT unit when the miles start piling up. It also needs regular CVT fluid changes. CX-3 has a sealed 'maintenance free' transmission
- CX-3 seems to have some known issues with the A/C systems. My Juke's A/C slipped an o-ring and failed within the first 2 years. Nissan warranty took care of it. CX-3 also lacks solar tinting on the windshield. Here in Phoenix, AZ, this car is constantly hot inside. Juke's windshield never cooked me...
- Everyone raves about CX-3's great handling. Juke handles better
- Infotainment in CX-3 is miles ahead of Juke
- CX-3 has aggressive, yet conservative styling. Juke you either love it or hate it
- If CX-3 follows Mazda's track record, reliability will be top-notch. Nissans seldom have great reliability. While I had the Juke there were a number of recalls and TSBs on it
- CX-3 crushes Juke when it comes to safety, especially in the small front overlap

Long-term reliability, safety, connectivity, and fuel economy were my top reasons for trading the Juke toward the CX-3. Thus far, I'll admit I'm a little disappointed in the CX-3. Here's hoping that changes the longer I drive it...
