2020 Nissan Juke - What to expect?

2020 Nissan Juke - What to expect?

Nissan Juke is one of the most anticipated cars in the Japanese automobile manufacturer’s lineup. The second-generation model is set to replace the first generation Juke, which was launched way back in 2013. Nissan Australia has planned to start the production of the new Juke from the middle of the year 2020, which ends the huge question of whether it will make its way to the Australian market. The second-generation Juke was first revealed in the month of September.

The addition of Juke is a piece of great news for the carmaker as it has not introduced a new product in the lineup since a very long time. What makes it more relevant is the fact that it sits in the hugely popular small SUV segment. Vehicles like the Hyundai Kona, Toyota C-HR, Mazda CX-3 and CX-30 will offer a healthy competition to the Juke.

The new generation Juke flaunts a better design and offers more space inside the cabin. Let's have a look at the 2020 Nissan Juke expected features:

Less polarising design

Even if the sample shots reveal that the design of the new Juke remains edgy, it is surely less polarising than the previous version. It now flaunts a more aggressive stance with the slender blade-like daytime lights and lies below are the familiar-looking elliptical driving lights that offer great visibility under low light conditions.

Enhancing the overall front look is Nissan's massive 'V-Motion' grille. The contrasting roof colour and pronounced body sculpting make the car look fresh and attractive. The side look of the car is enhanced by 19-inch alloy wheels. The dimensions of the car lie at 4210 mm in length, 1595 mm in height, 1800 mm in width and 2636 mm in wheelbase. Compared to the earlier version, the dimensions are bigger, which improves the overall cabin space. According to the carmaker, the car is now 23 kg lighter, which improves the dynamics of the vehicle. The rear of the car is hooked 370Z-inspired taillights.

Unique cabin

Getting inside the car, the brand has offered an innovative design that looks much better when compared to the motorcycle-inspired cabin offered in the earlier version. The dashboard flaunts circular vents along with an 8.0-inch infotainment display that works fluidly.

The cabin has been offered with a premium touch, thanks to the elements such as lashings of gloss-black finishes, a stealthier look, Alcantara trim and subtle LED ambient lighting. The steering wheel is one that can be found on other Nissans and comes with mounted controls. Behind the steering wheel, the carmaker has placed a 4.2-inch cluster in the base model and a 7-inch unit in the higher-spec trims.

The rear legroom has been improved by 58 mm, and the boot capacity has been drastically improved to 422 litres from 354 litres. Features like Apple Carplay, Android Auto support, an eight-speaker Bose audio system and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity are also added in the Nissan Juke specs sheet.

Sluggish powertrain

The buyers who are expecting a punchy performance from the engine might be a bit disappointed. Having said that, it comes equipped with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol mill, which is capable of churning out a maximum power of 115 hp and a peak torque of 180 Nm. The power is sent to the wheels via a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The suspension duties are handled by a MacPherson design at the front and torsion units at the rear.

Standard safety features

The 2020 Nissan Juke comes equipped with standard safety features and also gets  Nissan's ProPilot driver assistance package. It includes features like active cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring.

Pricing

The price for the base model ST FWD starts at $23,490, while the top of the line model NISMO RS AWD costs $41,490.

The 2020 Nissan Juke can be a great choice for those looking for a funky looking small SUV. If compared to the previous generation, it comes with better looks, space, and interiors.
