It’s been ten years since the first Nissan Juke shocked the world with its quirky looks, and now, the Nissan Juke is back once again, now with a more handsome face, more interior space, and a better spec in every single way compared to the model it replaces.
The all-new Nissan Juke retains its funky looks, but the design has now been further refined to create a more cohesive and athletic look. Starting with the front, the Juke now gets a bigger V-motion grille which cleanly merges together with the horizontal LED daytime running lights. The circular headlights have been retained and are now powered by LED as well. A strong C-shaped crease gives the side profile a more dynamic and leaner design. The roof meanwhile features a floating roof design treatment and can also be configured to have a different color from the rest of the body. Lastly, the rear features a leaner, more muscular look with its large LED taillights and haunched rear wheel arches.
The interior is radically different from its predecessor from a design perspective. Numerous interior design elements are highly customizable, wherein the dash, center console, and door panels can be configured to feature orange leather, white leather, black leather, or even black alcantara. The all-new dashboard design also features a large 8-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the instrument cluster utilizes a 7-inch high-resolution multi-information display. Multiple functions have been integrated into the infotainment system, enabling Nissan to reduce the number of buttons on the center console. The all-new Juke also features an 8-speaker Bose Personal Plus audio system.
To further increase the Nissan Juke’s appeal, the all-new model now has more interior space. Nissan claims an increase of 58 mm for knee room, 11 mm for rear headroom, while trunk capacity is 20 percent bigger at 422 liters.
Under the hood of the Nissan Juke is a 1.0-liter inline-3 DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine that produces 115 hp and is linked to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters.
As with many new cars nowadays, the Nissan Juke will be available with a host of advanced driver assist systems called Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This includes a new set of advanced safety features such as Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention. The Nissan Juke also comes with the brand’s ProPilot Assist, which is its semi-autonomous driver safety and convenience feature, blending full speed adaptive cruise control along with active lane centering for supreme convenience during traffic and long highway drives.
The Nissan Juke will first go on sale in Europe this November and assembly of the all-new Juke will still be in Sunderland, UK.
