Last Updated On: 11/10/2019
Almost a decade after it set the bar for compact crossovers, with almost one million now on European roads, the next-generation Nissan JUKE arrives to reinvent the segment once again. Fun to drive as ever, the all-new JUKE delivers new levels of performance and technology, within a striking yet roomier dynamic crossover body.
The JUKE returns to set a new standard in the B-crossover segment with larger dimensions and an athletic stance, striking 19-inch alloy wheels and coupé style ‘floating roof’ design. Equipped with full LED technology as standard, the latest JUKE retains its iconic circular headlamps but with a new Y-shaped signature which complements Nissan’s V-Motion grille. An exclusive red body shade, Fuji Sunset, now completes the line-up of 11 colours.
Transformed on the inside as well, new JUKE is roomier for both passengers and their belongings, with 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. A reimagined interior offers style and comfort boosted by improved driver positions, increased rear roominess and more user-friendly controls and storage. New soft-touch materials on the dashboard, door trim and foot-wells offer a premium feel, complemented by standard monoform sporty seats and optional Alcantara® or leather upholstery.
The JUKE is powered by an efficient 1.0-litre three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine with 117PS, giving drivers improved performance, fuel economy and refinement. It is now available with an engaging 6-speed manual or sporty 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) paddle-shift transmission, and a driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport).
Nissan’s advanced ProPILOT technology, which offers electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking, will be available on the JUKE for the first time. Designed for highway use in single-lane traffic, ProPILOT makes long commutes and heavy traffic easier.
In addition, JUKE offers a full package of safety technologies, including 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.
With the new NissanConnect infotainment system, customers can use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto to mirror their favourite smartphone apps on the 8-inch touch screen display. Drivers can also access TomTom Maps & Live Traffic or activate their on-board Wi-Fi Hotspot to allow passengers connecting their laptops or tablets.
The NissanConnect Services app is the perfect mobile companion, offering customers control over multiple aspects of their car. Nissan JUKE owners can now check the door-lock status of their vehicle and lock or unlock their Nissan directly from their smartphone. For increased safety, drivers can also check their tyre pressure and oil level before departing on a trip.
