The Texas Auto Writers Association meets up once a year to name a few vehicles of Texas. Trucks, SUVs, Cars, and CUVs are all tested by the TAWA and awards are handed out. So who won out claiming the title of CUV of Texas? The 2011 Nissan Juke.
Yes, the Nissan Juke was named as the CUV of Texas. Knowing all of the members of the TAWA, this came as a shock to all of us at txGarage, but it goes to show you how great this little car really is. The guys and gals cited the vehicles interesting styling, engaging driving, and 32 mpg highway as reasons for the win.
The Juke comes with a 1.6 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine pushing 188 hp and looks like nothing else out there. I’ve seen pictures of aftermarket companies already lowering them and making them look even more sporty and can’t wait to jump behind the wheel of one ourselves.
