Nissan Juke revealed before Geneva show

Nissan has just released images and details on its newest model the Juke.

A B-segment utility vehicle the Juke is according to Nissan “part SUV, part sports car” and is due to make its formal debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month before going on sale in Europe and then global markets later this year.

Taking styling cues from the Qazana concept vehicle, the Juke was created by Nissan’s European design arm and refined in Japan. It has a busy combo of sharp creases, a sloping roofline, flared fenders and prominent glass work. Clearly taking some inspiration from the Nissan Micra, the Juke is taller and wider and is based of the Renault/Nissan Alliance’s B platform. Seventeen-inch alloys with 215-series tyres will be available, along with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Three engines will be available in Europe at launch, with AWD models coming equipped with a 187 horsepower 1.6-litre direct injected turbocharged four-cylinder putting out 177 pound-feet of torque. A 113-hp HR16DE 1.6-litre will also be available, along with a 110-hp 1.5-litre dCi diesel unit. The turbo’d petrol engine will be mated to a continuously variable transmission, while the the other engines can be had with a six-speed manual.

The equipment list is impressive with Nissan offering a host of high-tech features, including keyless entry and start, a rearview camera and automatic headlamps, along with some quirky interior styling.
