From Nissan’s perspective, The Good Car Guy’s test of the 2011 Nissan Juke was a roaring success. And though 83 sales a month doesn’t sound like much, the Juke was only on sale in Canada for about a week in October. While the Juke is by no means directly comparable to the 2011 Mitsubishi RVR – the Outlander Sport in the States – it’s quite likely that Juke sales in November or December will surpass the RVR.

There’s likely no other automotive category more competitive than the small luxury SUV segment. Some would like to see the Cadillac SRX pushed out of the arena, or have the Lexus RX thrown in. Regardless, even the RX’s 659 October sales sounds like a reachable total for the others. Only the Volvo XC60 and Land Rover LR2 seem ignored. So what’s gonna happen to the LR2 when the 2011 Land Rover Evoque steals the show?
