Nissan has revealed the new iteration of its all so controversial looking Juke compact crossover, which takes a huge leap in technological advancements and overall looks as well… Looking really sharp!
Larger dimensions, an exciting new look should surely get those that had reservations about the looks of the outgoing Juke having a more positive approach to the newcomer. Design-wise, the new Juke benefits from Nissan’s V-Motion grille, full LED technology as standard, 19-inch alloy wheels and coupe style ‘floating roof’ design.
The interior is characterised by new soft-touch materials on the dashboard, door trim and footwells offer a premium feel, complemented by standard monoform sporty seats and optional Alcantara® or leather upholstery. Customers will also be enabled to add a more personal touch, thanks to the new N-Design grade package, which comes in packing multiple colour combinations for body, roof and interior upholstery. Exterior personalisation is also offered, with customisable bumpers, side sills and 19-inch alloy wheels. Besides the exciting look and feel of the upcoming Juke, cabin space has been improved, affording passengers with an increase in rear-seat knee room (increased by 5.8cm), rear head-room (increased by 1.1cm) and a boot capacity of 422 litres – providing 20% more storage room. The new JUKE has also been now loaded with Nissan’s infotainment and driver assistance technology. Featuring Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology, the new model is the most connected Nissan ever.
Power is delivered by a 86kW 1.0liter 3-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine that sends drive to the front wheels via a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) transmission with driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport).
Mzansi availability is yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned.
