Launched almost a decade ago, Nissan Juke has always gathered mix opinions about its look. Some people found the Juke very quirky, while some appreciated the look. Either you love it or hate it. But now Juke is all set with its new generation design. That sure will be liked by more people than before.
The second-gen Juke design sticks to what Juke started in 2010 but feels more in sync with the modern era. As the first-gen Nissan Juke was a successful product for Nissan, selling more than a million units, designing the second-gen was a bit of a challenge for designers. Matt Weaver, Head of Nissan Europe Design said: “As designers, we always try and make cars super-dynamic, but with this car, we wanted to increase usability – the luggage and rear occupant space – so it’s about balancing that sporty, agile look with increasing usability”.
The front of the Juke gets the same headlight design as before. You have DRLs one top, accompanied with the oval LED headlights below them. DRLs are connected with Nissan V-motion grille flaunted by a thick chrome strip. While the side profile and rear get design hints from the Kicks. You also get dual-tone colour options and sloping floating roof.
The Nissan Juke has also gained size while still keeping the weight down. So even though when it’s longer and wider than the model it replaces, it is lighter by 23kg. Most of this extra length and width has helped getter better knee and headroom for rear passengers. At 422 litres the boot is also up by 20 per cent.
Coming to the interiors it also gets major changes. It gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with NissanConnect infotainment which supports Apple Car Play and Andriod Auto. It also features Nissan’s ProPilot driving assistance system, adaptive cruise control with steering assist, intelligent automatic braking and collision mitigation, rear-cross traffic warning, blind-spot warning, and lane-keep assist. You also have an option to get the 8-speaker system from Bose.
As of now, Nissan is only offering one engine for the Juke. A 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that makes 115 bhp. It will come mated to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. You can also opt for the All Wheel Drive. The deliveries will start later this year in November in Europe.
