The B-segment crossover has grown up and dimensions are now 4,210 mm length; 1,595 mm height; and a width of 1,800 mm for better roominess while remaining compact and lighter by 23kg.
A re-imagined interior offers rear-seat knee room increased by 5.8 cm, rear head room by 1.1 cm and a boot capacity of 422 litres – providing 20% more storage room.
Thanks to high strength steel, the new model features a more rigid platform that offers better stability, performance and cornering capabilities.
The JUKE is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine with 117PS mated to a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) paddle-shift transmission, and a driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport).
Nissan's ProPILOT technology, which offers electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking, is offered on the JUKE for the first time.
Designed for highway use in single-lane traffic, ProPILOT makes long commutes and heavy traffic easier.
Safety features can include Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention as a Nissan premiere that is unique to the segment.
Blind Spot Intervention warns the driver when a car gets into its blind spot and brings JUKE back in the lane.
Also offered is a 8-inch touch screen display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Equipped with full LED technology as standard, and Nissan’s V-Motion grille, the JUKE also has striking 19-inch alloy wheels and a coupé style ‘floating roof’ design.
