Nissan Juke

Nissan Juke 1.5 l 2017 

0-62: 11.2 seconds
top speed: 109 mph
Torque 177 ft lb
BHP 108.5
MPG: : 39.7, but with the way you have to drive this car I will be very surprised if you manage to get this.

I have driven it now you have to keep the RPM up above 5000. it drives really well if you keep the revs up, but please don't let the revs drop below 5000 otherwise you have had it; there is just no dies.
I will let you know when I have been on the motorway with the car and keep you updated, but for now that's it.

Power: 192 BHP
Torque: 295 ft/lb
0-62: 9.1
Top speed: 129mph

The plastic is a on the dashboard little cheap looking but the seats are comfortable, the drive experience is average.

VW Touran

VW Touran

Engine : 1968cc, 4 cylinders, diesel. 
Power : 148bhp,  3500 rmp.
Torque : 251 lb ft, 1750 rmp.
Transmission: 6-speed manual.
Acceleration; 0-62mph; 9.3 sec.
Top Speed; 129 mph.

You get a sat nav system that sometimes turns itself off. This is a common fault and the cure is to stop the car, get out, lock it, unlock it, get back in and start the engine again.
