    Nissan Juke Chop



    I want to like the Juke but I can't lol - I found the concept really interesting but the production vehicle is just too watered down.

    So instead of trying to make it look more like the concept I made it look more like their truck line...edit on left side

    feedback welcome

    Instantly when I saw your chop I thought--Kia Sorento. I think the Juke needs more of a dramatic front fascia to go along with the rest of the car. I think the headlights from the Murano could be adaptable if manipulated right.

    The Juke is a pretty sweet little compact CUV. The interior of it is pretty nice for its price point and the AWD system is a good thing.

    If they had toned down the front end a little, that was the ONLY thing getting negative remarks at the car show I went to, they would of sell a crap ton more. Really wish GM would have a sweet vehicle like this.

    Thanks for the feedback Crunked and bbal I appreciate it. I fail to see much of any resemblance to the Kia Sorento though besides the fact they both have upswept headlight surrounds and even those are different since the KIAs wraps around the turn markers ... what exactly are you referring to Crunked?

    the actual headlights, grille, lower fascia, hood, hood cut line, rear view mirrors, etc all look quite different to me.

    thanks!

    Nice chop edit.
    It looks ALOT better!
    Good job!



    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I think the shape of your light revision made me think of the Sorenta---other than that I agree everything else appears to be totally different.

    Yours works, and would undoubtedly appeal to a wider audience, but it lacks that "wow" factor. The rear of the Juke looks great. Maybe there are some elements back there that you could apply to the front???

    I like the improvements. Unfortunately Nissan design of late seems to be over-exxagerating the bulged headlights a bit (see Leaf as well).

    most definitely! a wider audience at the expense of a less polarizing design

    I'm not ripping on Nissan too bad At least they have a design direction and are willing to take risks - I just don't care for them ahahahaha

    People call the Aztek ugly, but the Juke is sooooo much uglier. (Original) That is a good chop, but i agree with the Kia comments.

    I think they could've done the front better, but I appreciate their audacity.

    The Aztek started out as an audacious concept only to be fitted in the GM turd reich mold.

    As for the chop - y u put g8 headlightz in my joke
