New Nissan Juke revealed: Geneva Motor ShowWed, 05 Mar 2014
The 2014 Nissan Juke revealed at Geneva
A new Nissan Juke has been teased by Nissan over the last week or so, and although the idea that this is a ‘New’ Juke is way off the mark, Nissan has managed to make the 2014 Juke better by offering more of the same. Sensibly, Nissan has kept the Juke’s quirky ‘Ugly is appealing’ looks intact and the new Juke is very much a Juke but it does get the usual facelift fodder of restyled bumpers and lights, front and back, with LED running lights and LED tail lights and a new grill.
New personalisation options come in to play for the Juke too, with three levels offering coloured splashes to the front and rear bumpers, alloys and cabin, all of which can be retro-fitted in case subsequent owners aren’t thrilled with how it looks.
A bit of re-packaging has also managed to increase boot capacity (certainly on front wheel drive models) by as much as 100 litres, making the Juke a much better option for school runs and shopping trips.
Under the bonnet there’s now a choice of three engines, with the 1.5 litre dCi diesel remaining, a 1.2 litre DIG-T petrol replacing the old 1.6 litre and offering 113bhp and 51mpg and the 187bhp 1.6 DIG-T being tweaked to produce more torque and be more economical with emissions down from 159g/km to 139g/km.
The new Juke 1.6 DIG-T comes with a six-speed manual ‘box, but you can also have the 4WD version with Nissan’s new xtronic ‘box which improves both economy and performance.
The new Nissan Juke will go on sale Summer 2014 with price information revealed beforehand.
