The Nissan Juke is about as polarizing a cross as there is currently. Let’s call the modern Pontiac Aztek. According to reports, there is a complete overhaul expected for the Juke in 2018, but the questions concern whether Nissan will go at full speed with the awesome look of the Juke or tone it a bit.
The concept of Nissan for the new Juke is quite impressive. They introduced a compact four-door utility vehicle, very similar to the original C-HR concept. At the front, the car features the new Nissan V-shaped corporate look that includes a large grille and very thin and swept headlights. The same type of design was also used on the new Altima. The exceptional round headlights currently found on the Juke will likely be replaced with new V-shaped fog lights. These would still get the same location as before, but the overall design will be more aggressive. The production model will probably feature a similar set of proportions with a longer hood and a cut-like design. The car will feature four regular doors with rear doors with hidden handles. This trick has also been used on the new Micra. At the rear, the 2018 Nissan Juke should continue with the cut-inspired look. A small roof spoiler, a double exhaust and even V-shaped taillights could be found on the production version of the car.
The concept for the Juke has a fairly futuristic cabin, unlikely to be seen on the production car. However, Nissan released the all-new Micra not so long ago. Given the price of the two cars, we expect them to present a fairly similar set of design. To begin with, the steering wheel, infotainment system and climate control should all be identical. The Juke will likely receive HVAC breakdowns similar to those found on the concept, while the seats more than likely offer much better lateral improvements.
From the European media archive, the 2018 Nissan Juke options will include a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol unit, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel unit, and even a 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine , among others. A report in Spanish then indicated that Nissan may not propose a diesel option.
A hybrid variant with a small gasoline engine that charges the battery used to power the electric motor is also expected to join the Juke range in its second generation. This variant could use the “e-Power” brand, as in the Nissan Note hybrid.
Of course, prices for the next generation Juke are not confirmed yet. However, we expect only moderate price increases in the current range of the current model from $ 21,150 to $ 30,920. We expect to see the new Juke in the showrooms in 2018.
