I almost wrapped my head around one. There were two problems for me:

1) Between the turbo and the CVT, it feels like a driving simulation, not a car. The connection between inputs and vehicular responses feels a lot like flying a Predator UAV over satellite link.

2) The fact that it's a Versa with a tall body means that it isn't particularly off-road-able, which, for a car that's gonna front like that, is a damn shame. I recognize that 99% of all things with AWD will never so much as see dirt but I really think that if Nissan did a version of the Juke that had some modifiable suspension bits they would have captured a whole bunch of the PunisherPants market. Examples exist but they're so much work.
