The Nissan Juke may divide opinion with its extrovert styling, but despite this, it’s been flying off showroom forecourts quicker than you can say ‘crossover’. Today, Nissan has announced updates for its successful compact SUV, which include tweaks to the design, more tech and more personalisation.
Tweaked looks, more personalisation
Let’s start with the design, which on the face of it, looks to be the same as before. You’ve still got the three tier light design, and a front end that looks as if it’s gurning at you. Look closely though, and you’ll spot the new v-motion grille, which is finished dark chrome as well as dark headlight interiors and dark indicators. There are also two new body colours available; the striking Vivid Blue, and Chestnut Bronze.

There’s also more choice for personalisation, thanks to two interior packs; Energy Orange and Power Blue. The exterior can also be personalised to make your Juke more unique, plus there are now optional 18″ alloys for the Tekna grade. There is also a higher grade of leather used for the steering wheel to offer a more premium feel.

As well offering a bit of a nip and tuck, the new Juke will be made available with the BOSE Personal audio system, which offers an immersive 360° listening experience through BOSE digital signal processing and six high-performance speakers. The system also includes two speakers built in to the driver’s headrest, so you can really get in your jams as cruise along.
Ken Ramirez, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Nissan Europe, commented: “The Nissan Juke is the pioneer of the B-segment crossover and is today one of our most established and much-loved models. These new features further extend customer choice, enhancing the distinctive design for which Juke is best known.”
The new Nissan Juke is available to order now, with prices starting from £15,505.
