Order books open for larger, more connected Nissan Juke
The new Nissan Juke is now available to order, bringing a larger, more practical interior and new connectivity features.
Launched a decade after the trend-setting original, the second-generation model is priced from £17,395 and is larger and wider than before, increasing interior space and upping luggage capacity to 422 litres.
It also features a design intended to offer broader appeal and including a Y-shaped LED signature that complements Nissan’s trademark V-Motion grille along with a ‘floating’ roof design and 19-inch wheels. The range offers 11 body colours in combination with three roof contrasted colours.
The interior has also been made over and features more upmarket materials, including new soft-touch materials on the dashboard, door trim and foot-wells with the option of Alcantara and leather and the availability of three personalisation packs.
Five trims are on offer, with the Tekna+ grade joining the familiar Visia, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna models.
Technology on offer includes a Bose Personal Plus audio system, which can be controlled via a ‘floating’ 8-inch infotainment display, providing easy access to the Nissan Connect Services and bringing Apple CarPlay or Android Auto functionality. The infotainment system also offers an app to control and monitor the Juke while in-car WiFi will be available early 2020.
Just one engine is offered – the DIG-T 117hp 1.0-litre petrol three-cylinder engine already seen in the Micra and married up with a six-speed manual or, for the first time, an optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifts.
Fuel economy has improved, bringing WLTP-rated 45.6-47.9mpg for manual transmission versions and 44.1-46.3mpg for DCT models while CO2 emissions are down, starting from 112g/km (NEDC Correlated) for manual versions and 110g/km for the DCT.
The new Juke also introduces an all-new chassis while new ‘D-Mode’ functionality allows drivers to switch effortlessly between three modes – Standard, Eco and Sport.
Driver assistance technologies include Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Intelligent Speed Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention – the latter marking a debut for the Nissan range.
The Juke also gets Nissan’s ProPilot semi-autonomous technology on automatic versions.
First customer deliveries of the new Juke will begin from late November.
