Running Juke

Nismo Nissan needs no enemies, with friends at Car and Driver and a face only a mother or a storm trooper  could love;
Nissan’s Juke is strange. The compact crossover has strange styling, it’s a strange size, and it uses a strange—among its competitive set—turbocharged engine and torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system. In fact, it is so strange, that we sort of like it. Automotive uniqueness is getting harder and harder to come by in today’s segmented, conformist industry. So imagine our surprise when Nissan released a mini video series in Japan that plays up, you guessed it, the Juke’s strangeness; utilizing some of Hollywood’s best-known conformists, Star Wars’ Storm Troopers.
