Five tips to cut stress on car journeys – courtesy of Nissan Juke

Added: 29 March 2021

Nissan has launched the Juke Stress-Free Driving Guide in response to a survey of European motorists that revealed the top causes of in-car disharmony.

1 Hands-free for stress-free!

Did you know… New research from Nissan has found that using the phone whilst driving is European drivers’ number-one WORST driving habit. As well as being dangerous, it can also cause in-car arguments with passengers who feel unsafe!
Juke drivers can minimise discord with their passengers thanks to seamless smartphone integration with NissanConnect, which means making and receiving hands-free calls is simple and safe. And with the compatibility of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, incoming calls and messages can be safely digested.

2 Good music the key to joyful driving

Did you know… 55 per cent of Europeans believe?good music is the most important ingredient for an enjoyable car journey! Have a great journey by ensuring everyone has time to shine as a DJ and taking it in turns to select songs. Agree on a playlist with your passengers before you depart.
Juke occupants can enjoy their road-trip playlists using JUKE’s NissanConnect infotainment system which connects seamlessly to smartphones, and enjoy exquisite audio with the Bose Personal Plus system for driver and front passenger, either from the Juke’s onboard player or via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. All passengers can also use Juke’s In-Car Wi-Fi hotspot to enjoy their own tunes if they prefer!

3 Smooth sailing

Did you know… 46 per cent of European drivers say tailgating is one of the most irritating driving habits behind the wheel? Keep any sudden surprises at bay by keeping yourself at least two seconds’ following distance from the vehicle in front (remember, leave a bigger gap if you are travelling more quickly).
Juke’s ProPILOT advanced driving assistance system not only helps drivers maintain a set distance on the highway – it also accelerates and decelerates to match the car in front and will help the JUKE stay in lane.

4 Enjoy a break

Did you know… Nearly one in five European drivers admits to battling through tiredness and not stopping regularly on long journeys. We all feel drained during a long car journey, so take the time to pull over and have a rest. Whether it’s a nap or a coffee, it’ll keep you alert and everyone on-board safe and sound.
Juke can identify if the driver is showing signs of fatigue. Intelligent Driver Alertness keeps a watchful eye on the driver’s steering patterns, and alerts them with a chime and a coffee cup icon on the display screen to remind them to take a break.

5 Spot the car!

Did you know… 56 per cent of European car passengers admit that dangerous and misjudged overtakes make them feel most uneasy in the car. When going for the overtake, always take a good look around to make sure the next lane is clear and there’s nothing coming up quickly behind you.
Juke’s Blind Spot Intervention gives drivers a heads-up if it detects a vehicle in an adjacent lane on the highway. If the driver doesn’t respond, it will help the car to return to its original lane with braking intervention.
