2011 Nissan Juke
Kudos to Nissan for having the guts to stretch the design envelope into such a unique shape, and to the buying public for demonstrating an increased openness to things that look different. Go beyond the sheetmetal and you'll find a sporty, turbocharged little crossover that's available with a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system that can distribute torque not just front to rear, but also between the rear wheels. The 2011 Nissan Juke starts under $20,000 and tops out just beyond $25,000 when loaded with a navigation system, leather, moonroof and more.
