The passenger compartment of the Juke remained stable in the frontal impact and rearward movement of the steering wheel movement was small. Measurements in the dummies' knees and femurs did not indicate a problem but, on both the driver and passenger side, structures in the dashboard were considered to present a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Accordingly, protection in this area was rated as marginal. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision was also rated as marginal.
The Juke scored maximum points for its protection of the 3 year old dummy in the dynamic tests. Movement of both child’s heads was controlled in the frontal impact and side barrier test. The front seat passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The dangers of using a rearward facing seat in that seat without first disabling the airbag were clearly explained and permanently visible on the sun visor in the appropriate European languages.
The bonnet provided good protection in most areas likely to be struck by a child's head, but was almost completely poor in those areas where an adult’s head would hit. The front edge of the bonnet also offered poor protection in almost every area tested.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the Juke, as is a seatbelt reminder for the driver and front seat passenger seating positions. Both of which met the Euro NCAP requirements. A driver-set speed limitation device did not qualify for assessment as it is available only as an option.
