Originally launched in 2010, the Nissan Juke created a whole new car segment, the small SUV. Bringing the raised ride-height and more robust styling features seen in large SUVs to a more compact wheelbase struck a chord with the public, and Nissan has had extraordinary sales of nearly one million Jukes to date.
Keen to stay at the fore of the compact crossover market, Nissan has released much-anticipated details on its brand new second-generation Nissan Juke. A grown-up version of the original Juke with a new platform, engine and interior it offers improved performance and practicality.
From the outside, the new Nissan Juke features sharper lines for a dynamic look and aerodynamic performance. A bold new grille gives it an imposing appearance while at the rear a Ducktail rear spoiler adds attitude while also aiding efficiency by reducing drag. Plus for the first time, the Juke will be available with stylish 19” alloy wheels which add instant impact.
Despite all of these changes, the new Nissan Juke still retains some of the first Juke’s original styling for a feeling of familiarity, like the floating coupé-style roof, large round headlights and signature Nissan ‘Boomerang’ rear lights.
The new Nissan Juke is built on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance’s CMF-B platform, so offers more space than the previous generation model.
The new Juke measures 4210mm long, 1595mm tall and 1800mm wide, which makes it 85mm longer and 170mm wider but 30mm lower than the previous generation model.
Most noticeably for those on board though is the 105mm larger wheelbase which has enabled Nissan to increase rear knee room by 58mm. However, more significantly this has allowed Nissan to increase boot space from 354-litres to an impressive 422-litres (not far behind the boot capacity of its bigger brother the Qashqai).
While the Nissan Juke is larger than its predecessor, the use of high-strength steel has ensured that Nissan has still managed to shave 23kg off the overall weight of the original Juke. This not only helps boost efficiency and performance but also helps to improve stability and cornering capabilities.
Step inside the new Nissan Juke, and you won’t be disappointed. The cockpit-like interior puts the driver at the centre of performance with intuitive technology right at your fingertips.
The seven-inch advanced drive-assist display gives you a clear view of the essential driving information you need for seamless travel. While the Nissan Connect infotainment system is made up of an eight-inch touchscreen which is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone technology, so you get ultimate connectivity on the go.
Nissan’s Monoform seats which come as standard are a huge boost to interior comfort, and ensure you arrive at your destination feeling relaxed. While the option of UltraNearField headrest for the driver and front passenger incorporate speakers for a premium wraparound audio experience.
The new Nissan Juke even comes with a Connected Services App, which allows you to conduct a range of functions from your phone. You can check the health of your car via the app so you can plan your journeys accordingly. However, more remarkably, the app opens up a range of features which are sure to beneficial should car-sharing or renting become more popular. For example, the app will enable users to check the car's location, whether the set speed is being adhered to and if the car has travelled outside a designated area.
Opening up a new era of efficient motoring the new Nissan Juke will be released with just one engine to start with, a one-litre three-cylinder turbo with 115bhp. This engine will, however, come with the choice of either a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
With driver, passenger and pedestrian safety becoming key to a car’s long-term success, it is hardly surprising that the new Juke offers the very latest version of Nissan’s ProPilot driver assistance system. This offers features like braking and steering assistance to act as a failsafe to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place.
The brand new Nissan Juke will be available in five trims ranging from the entry-level Visia models to the range-topping Tekna+ models.
Tekna+ models offer multiple colour combination for the body, roof and interior upholstery, along with customisable bumpers and side sills. So offer plenty of opportunities to get a Juke that is tailored to your specific requirements.
To celebrate the new Nissan Juke, Nissan is also releasing a distinctive special edition model, the Nissan Juke Premiere Edition. Based on the Tekna+ trim it will come in an exclusive black with a striking Fuji Sunset red roof and feature unique exterior body styling, 19” alloy wheels and a luxurious Alcantara interior for enhanced on-board ambience.
Just 140 Nissan Juke Premiere Edition cars will be sold in the UK, so if you are keen to get your hands on something really special, you will need to act fast.
