10. Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke scored a “poor” rating in the small overlap front test, earning it a low overall safety score. Driver space was seriously compromised by intruding structure, with lower interior intrusion measuring 37 cm, and upper interior intrusion measuring 27 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel. The door sill was pushed laterally 19 cm towards the driver, and the steering column was pushed back 10 cm. According to measurements taken from the dummy, a left lower leg injury was likely, and a left knee injury was possible in a crash of this severity. The dummy’s head barely contacted the airbag before sliding off the left side due to the steering column shifting 17 cm to the right. The side curtain airbag deployed, but did not have sufficient coverage to protect the head from contacting the structure.
