Nissan Juke facelift

The Geneva Motor Show is the event that draws the attention of every car lover in the world. Famous brands, skilful tuners, ingenious concepts, eye-grabbing vehicles, all are at Geneva with the thought of making a huge impression on the public. Nissan is also there, exhibiting a few of their products. Among them, the Japanese have prepared a facelifted Nissan Juke.

The Nissan Juke is now distinguished by Nissan's corporate front grille and by some 370Z-inspired headlights now available with xenon bulbs for improved visibility. The LED turn signals have been included in the side mirrors. At the back the boomerang-shaped taillights have also received a minor revision with LEDs. The crossover also received an opening sunroof, a new set of alloys, new body paintings and a more precise personalization program. Front-wheel drive versions now provide 40 percent more cargo room because of a redesigned trunk area which has increased capacity to 354 liters.

The Nissan Juke facelift is powered by a 1.2-liter DIG-T turbocharged gasoline engine, the same one powering the second generation Qashqai. The direct-injected engine generates 115 HP (85 kW) and provides a maximum torque of 190 Nm (140 lb-ft). It can be linked to a six-speed manual gearbox or a new Xtronic transmission sending power to both axles. The new Juke will reach the Nissan dealerships this summer.
